Starting with DC: Rebirth more than a year ago, the DCU has been a non-stop rollercoaster ride of storytelling. And now we have DC: Metal and the introduction of the ‘Dark Multiverse’ upon us! What exactly is the ‘Dark Multiverse’? What can we expect? We still have a lot of questions t but today we have our first hint! Check it out below!

Evil versions of the Dark Knight are coming to terrorize Earth this fall! Seven one-shot comics that tie into the upcoming DARK NIGHTS: METAL event are on the horizon, each spotlighting a different, corrupted version of Batman spawned from the Dark Multiverse.

How can the Justice League stop a horde of deadly beings that appear to be powerful, nightmare versions of themselves? Find out in these special tie-in issues, beginning September 20 with BATMAN: THE RED DEATH #1 by Joshua Williamson and Carmine Di Giandomenico followed by BATMAN: THE MURDER MACHINE #1 by Frank Tieri and Ricardo Federici on September 27.

Check these two covers out below.

All seven of the DARK NIGHTS: METAL one shots will feature covers by Jason Fabok. Stay tuned to Monkeys Fighting Robots for more cover reveals of BATMAN: THE DROWNED, BATMAN: THE MERCILESS, BATMAN: THE DEVASTATOR, BATMAN: THE DAWNBREAKER, and THE BATMAN WHO LAUGHS in the coming week.

Pretty cool huh? A whole team of evil other-dimensional Batmen is certainly a HUGE threat for the DCU. Things are definitely about to get dark and heavy.
