A GOD GONE MAD. AND THE HEROES WHO SEEK TO SET IT RIGHT.
"IT ALWAYS STARTS WITH ONE."
"ONE DEATH. TO SAVE MILLIONS."
Superman was Earth's greatest hero. He was the shining beacon of truth, justice and the American way. Forever an inspiration for the brighter future ahead, the Man of Tomorrow made the world want to be better. Then everything changed in a single day. When the Man of Steel couldn't protect those he held most dear, he decided being a hero wasn't enough. To truly save this world, he would have to abandon his philosophy as the Big Blue Boy Scout and become the ruler he felt humankind needed.
With his all-powerful allies--Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, the Flash, Shazam and even Robin--the reign of Superman has begun. World conflicts are ended, and criminals are stopped without mercy. Facing a god among men, only one person stands between Superman and ultimate power: the Dark Knight. Batman is gathering an alliance of heroes like Green Arrow, Catwoman, the Birds of Prey, Harley Quinn and Zatanna, willing to risk their lives to oppose this omnipotent dictatorship. He will use every method at his disposal to stop his friend from reshaping the world in his shattered image...whatever the cost, Superman's rule cannot stand!
