In a DC Comics universe where vampires are on the rise, Batman just quietly put his whole Bat-family to the ultimate loyalty test. In DC vs. Vampires #2, the Dark Knight couldn’t risk the possibility that one of his closest companions was a vampire, so he laced each of their drinks with holy water. Fortunately for Bruce Wayne, his whole crew passed-even if they weren’t satisfied with the results. In DC Comics’ DC vs. Vampires limited series, Hal Jordan has been covertly transformed into a vampire and has been steadily annihilating members of the Justice League. One of Hal’s earliest victims was Zan of the Wonder Twins, whom he cruelly murdered with one of his creations. The vampires also defeated the Legion of Doom, bringing a slew of new villains into their ranks. Andrew Bennett, however, managed to transmit a message to Batman before being assassinated by the otherworldly Green Lantern. It’s now up to the Caped Crusader to put a halt to the expanding vampire army before the DC Universe becomes fully undead.
In the new issue DC vs. Vampires # 2 by James Tynion IV, Matthew Rosenberg, and others, Batman gathers the Bat-Family at Wayne Manor:
Batman joins the Bat-Family at Wayne Manor in DC vs. Vampires #2 by James Tynion IV, Matthew Rosenberg, Otto Schmidt, and Tom Napolitano. He informs his proteges that Andrew Bennett has given him a vial of Lex Luthor’s blood and that a vampire army is prepared to wage war. Tim Drake questions Batman’s trustworthiness after considering who the vampires would attack tactically. That’s when Barbara Gordon and Damian Wayne learn the hot beverages Alfred served them were laced with poison. Batman informs the squad that he placed holy water in each of their glasses to guarantee that no members of the Bat-Family were secretly vampires. Batman is constantly thinking two steps ahead, as the holy water and meeting site in Wayne Manor’s sunroom allowed him to check whether any of the Bat-Family members were vampires. It’s not the final test Batman puts the Bat-Family through, as he makes each member grasp a cross before revealing his formidable arsenal of vampire-killing weaponry.
Fortunately for bats, none of the Bat-family were secretly vampires:
Fortunately for Batman, none of the members of the Bat-Family were covert vampires. The tests may have irritated the squad, but each hero realizes how critical it is to ensure that there is no traitor among them. So, while giving them holy water without their permission was a jerk move, Batman did it for the right reasons. The Bat-family can now battle together to protect the DC Universe against the most dangerous vampires on the planet. DC vs. Vampires #2 is currently available at comic book retailers.
