The Dark Knight’s Rise at DC Comics

After teasing comic book fans with ominous shadow images of six evil Batmen from the Dark Multiverse several weeks ago, their final, terrifying images have been revealed by DC Comics.

Each of these malevolent characters – The Red Death, The Murder Machine, The Dawnbreaker, The Drowned, the Merciless and The Devastator – all represent corrupted versions of Batman set upon the DC universe to help conquer it once and for all, as part of the Dark Nights: Metal event beginning this August.

From L to R: The Murder Machine, The Red Death, The Devastator, The Merciless, The Drowned, The Dawnbreaker
