Batman: The Dark Knight Strikes Again by Frank MillerIts been three years since the events of The Dark Knight Returns, and everything is just fine. At least on the surface. What the world at large doesnt know is that its a total sham. A perfectly choreographed, pretty little world where everything thats ugly, or even potentially disturbing, is all nicely wrapped up with neat little ribbons and swept under the carpet. Only he knows better. Hes watched it fester to near-breaking point, and its time for the only free man left who can effect any real change to bring it all down around their ears once and for all.
The Dark Knight returns once again with a vitality unseen since the first years of his war on crime. Together with his army of Bat-soldiers, including Carrie Kelley—formerly Robin, and now the new Catgirl—the Dark Knight wages a new war on a diseased world thats become completely lost.
The Dark Knight Strikes Again features appearances by such DC icons as Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Arrow, Martian Manhunter, the Atom, the Question and more. But are they still the Worlds Greatest Heroes or part of the conspiracy?
This incredible volume, designed by multiple award-winner Chipp Kidd, features a new introduction by Miller commenting on returning to the world he created fifteen years ago. The book includes the complete 3-part story, plus numerous sketches and other never-before-seen material.
Batman: The Dark Knight Strikes Again
When it comes to Superman and relationships, most people automatically think "Lois and Clark". But Lois hasn't always been the only woman Superman or Clark Kent has been romantically involved with. The most obvious inclusions are Lana Lang and Lori Lemaris. Then there's Wonder Woman. With the announcement that Superman and Wonder Woman would become romantically involved from issue 12 of "Justice League" on sale August 29, , I thought I'd look back at previous pairings of this super couple throughout various comic book incarnations.
The series was originally published as a three-issue limited series November - July by DC Comics, and since collected into hardcover and paperback one-volume editions, and Absolute Dark Knight edition which also features The Dark Knight Returns. Like its predecessor, this story takes place in a timeline that is not considered canonical in the current continuity of DC Comics. After going underground, Batman and his young sidekick, Catgirl Robin from Batman: The Dark Knight Returns , train an army of "batboys" to save the world from a "police-state" dictatorship led by Lex Luthor. In a series of raids on government facilities, Batman's soldiers release from captivity other superheroes, including: The Atom , trapped for years in a petri dish; The Flash, forced to run on a treadmill to provide America with free power; and Plastic Man , now insane and trapped in Arkham Asylum. Elongated Man is recruited from his job as a commercial spokesman, and Green Arrow is already working with Batman as seen in the end of DKR.
From the Joker 's flying killer baby robots to the insanely badass Batmobile and beyond, there seemed no limit to where Miller's imagination would take the stories. Now, with the first chapter of "Dark Knight III: The Master Race" having been released, we felt this was the perfect time to revisit some top ten craziest awesome moments from the previous two series. Superman manages to divert it to the desert, but the resulting explosion causes a gigantic electromagnetic pulse that wipes out all of the electricity in the United States. The massive blackouts lead to countrywide looting. However, Batman and his new soldiers, the Sons of the Batman, as well as some errant members of the Mutants who Batman had taken control of earlier in the series take control of law and order in Gotham City, showing their order by arriving on horses on an amazing full page spread by Miller and inker Klaus Janson.

She has thus inherited both Kryptonian and Amazon powers from her parents. She's likely named for her grandmother, Lara Lor-Van. She was instrumental in the final overthrow of Brainiac, and the rescue of the bottle city of Kandor. Lara grew up on Paradise Island, never knowing much of her father. Her parents wanted to keep her hidden from Luthor and Brainiac's ever-watchful gaze, as Superman knew that they would want to control her much like they try to control him.
