Dark Nights: Metal – What Scott Snyder’s Deconstruction Of Batman Means

Batman Lost #1 hit your local comic book shop this week, and we try to make sense of Scott Snyder’s deconstruction of the character.

Trapped in the Dark Multiverse, Batman must face his greatest fears!
The book starts off with an older version of the Batman we know; the issue ends with him a shell of his former self.

What does this mean? Did we just lose post-Flashpoint Batman, will Grant Morrison’s Batman return to save the day? Only Snyder knows the answers to these questions. What we do know is now that Snyder has broken down Batman, he can now rebuild him. Only a few creators have wielded such great power; it will be interesting to see Batman looks like post-Metal.

Watch our Metal conversation below.

Dark Nights: Metal (4 of 6) has a street date of December 20.

We are at the half-way point of Dark Nights: Metal, how do you think it will end? Sound off in the comment section below.
