    NOTE: This story arc is intended for the Scott Snyder/Greg Capullo Batman issues, not any other series featuring shared characters.


    Superheavy is the Batman creative team of writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo's fifth full arc of the series, following the conclusion of Endgame, which ended in the apparent death of both Batman and Joker. The storyline debuted in DC's 2015 Free Comic Book Day offering Divergence FCBD Special Edition #1, where it was revealed that James Gordon was the man underneath the robotic Batsuit. The storyline would begin in full with the release of June 2015's Batman #41 and would shift tones and ideas for various other Batman related books during the same month.
