OK, now, moving ahead here — METAL #2 is totally crazy awesome in every way you could imagine.
The dream team of SNYDER, CAPULLO and GLAPION (BATMAN: Court of Owls and so much more!) continue to deliver what is easily the biggest, best DC Comics event since BLACKEST NIGHT, and we are PUMPED for what’s coming next!
As Superman and Wonder Woman hunt for a missing ally, Batman investigates a mystery spanning centuries.
When the World’s Greatest Detective discovers a foe even greater than the Justice League could possibly imagine, will Earth’s heroes be ready?
What’s METAL all about? Spinning out of a mystery that Batman has been investigating ever since the very first issue of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s run that began with THE COURT OF OWLS, and has continued into Rebirth with the recent revelations from THE BUTTON storyline, METAL is the culmination of everything that all star BATMAN creative team Snyder and Capullo have been building towards for the last few years.
Whether it’s Nth Metal or Doctor Fate’s helmet – there’s a lot of strange and mysterious metals in the DC Universe that do strange and mysterious things.
And, there’s something about them that’s connected to the entirety of the DCU Multiverse in a big way.
You better believe BATMAN has been on top of this from the get go — but, now, the very DARK MATTER that he’s been investigating is beginning to seep into the reality of the current DC Universe… and with it, it’s bringing something very interesting: the Dark Multiverse.
Just like there’s 52 Earths, and a different reality for each – there’s a dark side to these worlds, a dark multiverse, and as it’s tentacles extend into the DC Universe.. they’re changing it in a very frightening way.
All the mysteries you’ve been waiting to see come to light, from the myster of the THREE JOKERS, to the long-time intrigue surrounding things like Hawkman and Nth Metal.. it’s all going to be explored here in METAL!
Even more exciting — this storyline delivers the first real crisis of the Rebirth era, as the DC Universe finds itself terraformed into a horrific mirror of itself.
Didn’t think Gotham couldn’t get any scarier? Wait until you see it after the Dark Matter has had its way with it.
