Batman has a lot of people gunning for him — he just never expected one of them to be an old friend.
When fellow longtime Justice League member Martian Manhunter shows up at the Bat-cave and lays a beating on him that he barely survives, the Dark Knight is shocked.
After deciding against taking on such a powerful opponent by himself again, Batman decides this is a job for Superman. While the duo quickly learn the true meaning of the attack, they soon find themselves under siege by more and more aliens — all of whom are old foes not seen or heard from in years.
Soon all Earthbound aliens, friend and foe alike, are all working together to stop Batman and Superman from finding out the truth and preventing a major catastrophe.
And the question becomes: How long can the Kryptonian hero ignore the lure to join his alien brethren?
Battlestar Galactica executive producer Mark Verheiden — helped by the sublime art of Ethan Van Sciver — equates himself well as writer of this fast-paced and intriguing Superman/Batman story arc.
