The notorious villain Superman has escaped from Arkham Asylum and only the heroic Bizarro can stop him.
Uh…. what?
In a nightmare come true, Batman’s arch-nemesis, The Joker, has acquired god-like powers and remade the world to his liking. This means Superman is Public Enemy #1, the Justice League are reviled as the world’s worst crooks and it rains pies from the sky. Seriously.
In order to restore things to the way they ought to be, Superman seeks out the help of evil-genius and billionaire industrialist… Lois Lane?
But can even their combined might overthrow Emperor Joker? And where exactly is the Dark Knight?
An all-star cast of creators, including Jeph Loeb (TV’s Heroes), Ed McGuinness (Superman/Batman) and Scott McDaniel (Green Arrow) combine to tell one wild and wacky, but pretty darned entertaining, Superman adventure.
