DC has launched the first official preview pages from Dark Nights: Death Metal #1, and because the Metal company gets bigger and crazier whenever we get a renewed look, it’s established to a T-rex Batman into the equation. Of course, the Dark Knight has always had a touch of a reference to the dinosaur, as long as the Batcave has had an enormous robot T-rex in it almost as long as anybody can remember. But as far as we can recall, this is often the first time there has been an actual tyrannosaurus suiting up in cape and cowl. Unfortunately, it’s like he’s a nasty guy, hanging out with two guys who appear as if evil, color-reversed Batman. Beyond and a weird mash-up of Pirate Batman and therefore the Flashpoint costume might be ready to use to rally Earth’s remaining heroes to resist the Batman Who Laughs. Can the Justice League break free from the Dark Multiverse and defeat Perpetua?
THE DARK KNIGHT
Dark Nights: Metal brought widespread changes to the DC universe and introduced fans to the Dark Multiverse and a well-liked villain, the Batman Who Laughs, who has been a featured character in almost every major story Snyder has written since.
Can the Justice League break free from the Dark Multiverse and defeat Perpetua? Dark Nights: Death Metal may be a six-issue monthly series with issues #1-3 shipping in May, June, and July.
THE DEATH METAL PLAN
Wonder Woman will be the main character in the death metal series.
I’d hoped that if people liked the primary series enough, we’d have an opportunity to line up something more significant, and that’s our plan for Death Metal.” The series diverts from the dimensions of Scott Snyder’s fairness League run and, therefore, the Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen minishows by James Tynion IV. The Earth has been used by Dark Multiverse energy, having been conquered by the Batman Who Laughs and his evil lieutenants, corrupted versions of Shazam, Donna Troy, Supergirl, Blue Beetle, Hawkman, and Commissioner Jim Gordon.
THE “METALVERSE” SHOTS
It will also encompass “Metalverse” one-shots during the summer months, expanding the huge world created by the Death Metal storyline (presumably almost like the one-shots that gave backstories for the Dark Knights in Metal)
Dark Nights: Death Metal may be a six-issue monthly series with issues #1-3 shipping in May, June, and July. The series will take August off, then ship again in September, October, and November.
