    The Wrath comes to Gotham, his target—Commissioner Jim Gordon.

    Mike W. Barr re-imagines the Batman origin through a dark looking glass, twisting it & reforging it into the foundation stone for the Wrath. This time, a young boy's criminal parents are gunned down by police, launching the boy on a quest to become a vengeance fueled avatar, targeting the forces of law enforcement, across the globe. When the Wrath comes for Commissioner Gordon, the inevitable conflict between Batman and his opposite number ensues. An intriguing scenario, well executed and illustrated by the amazing Michael Golden.
