Rise of the Batmen Part 2: Apocalypse Now last edited by Omnipotent94 on 05/08/19 11:44AM View full history


Batman and team find themselves in the crosshairs as the villain they’ve begun hunting turns the tables on them. Batman and Batwoman have the skills to survive, but do their young teammates? Is this where hero training ends in tragedy?

Of course Batman is hiding something 0

The second chapter of "Rise of the Batmen" is one of those stories that require a double pass for maximum enjoyment.
