Publisher’s Summary: “Who are the Secret Six?” part three! Is Superman the newest member of the Batman Who Laughs’ Secret Six? It certainly looks that way, and Batman may be powerless to stop the Man of Steel and his own demented doppelgänger. The Dark Multiverse’s most dangerous Bruce Wayne is loose in our world, and he has our world’s greatest superhero at his side. Who do you turn to when there’s no one to trust?
The Batman Who Laughs’ Secret Six poses a great threat to the DCU; Batman and Superman are the only two heroes capable of getting to the bottom of the mystery at hand, and the only two capable of stopping the Batman Who Laughs. That is, of course, only if one of them don’t become compromised in the process…
So, if you’ve been keeping up with the series, or with my reviews of the series, you already know that Superman has intentional become compromised and subjected himself to the Batman Who Laughs’ virus in order to get closer to the source. I for one think that the potential for devastation far outweighed the potential for success, and that this risk was an unnecessary one, but hey, it made for an exciting read. Exciting is, perhaps, the best way to describe this short run, as all three issues have been thrilling.
Batman/Superman (2019-) #3 places Superman behind enemy lines, beside the Batman Who Laughs, and the result of which is impressive. Joshua Williamson has done a fine job in maintaining momentum all the while building toward, what I am sure will be, an epic conclusion.
Batman/Superman continues to impress; as Batman and Superman discover more details about the Batman Who Laughs’ devious plan, the stakes become higher and the story, more exciting.
