“Twenty years in Gotham. How many good guys are left? How many stayed that way? He has the power to wipe out the entire human race. I have to destroy him.”
After Superman’s Herculean battle with Zod, which devastated the city of Metropolis, many were left feeling angry and hopeless. Superman, the Earth’s most controversial figure, is then perceived to be more of a threat than a symbol of hope. Batman sets out on a personal vendetta to end Superman’s reign on Earth, while villainous madman Lex Luthor launches his own crusade against the Man of Steel.
