If you thought Batman was something of a know-it-all before Darkseid War, then you have no idea what the Dark Knight is like once he gets his hot little crimefighting hands on the Mobius Chair. With his Bat-butt in the all-powerful seat, Batman has essentially become the God of Knowledge, capable of traveling across space and time in order to stamp out crimes before they ever occur. Of course, acting as judge, jury, and not-quite executioner before a crime has ever been committed doesn’t exactly fly within the current layout of the American judicial system — something that Jim Gordon tries to impart to his dear friend. Telling the Goddamn Batman “no” was hard enough back when he was a normal brooding billionaire of a mortal, but now that he’s a cosmically charged godlike being with a souped-up space chair? Well, Jim Gordon is going to need all the help he can get. Take a peek at what’s in store for Batman, Gordon, and the gang in our exclusive preview of DC Comics’ Justice League: Darkseid War: Batman #1.
