Bad, bad Batmans: The Dark Knights rise at Comic-Con

Corrupt versions of Batman prepare to invade the DCU from the Dark Multiverse.

The Dark Multiverse is imminent in Dark Knights: Metal, as Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s big event series is set to kick off in August. At Comic-Con International, DC Comics revealed a look at some of the denizens of the Dark Multiverse who will plague the regular DCU during the event. Oh yeah — they’re all Batmans:

“Each of these malevolent characters – The Red Death, The Murder Machine, The Dawnbreaker, The Drowned, the Merciless and The Devastator – all represent corrupted versions of Batman set upon the DC universe to help conquer it once and for all, as part of the Dark Knights: Metal event beginning this August,” the statement from DC reads.
