DC Comics has unveiled the first look at the Dark Knights, six evil Batman style characters from the Dark Multiverse that will plague the DC heroes during the upcoming Dark Knights: Metal event. The image was revealed during San Diego Comic Con.
All six of the characters – The Red Death, The Murder Machine, The Dawnbreaker, The Drowned, the Merciless and The Devastator – are corrupted versions of Batman from other dimensions that are coming to conquer the main DC Universe once and for all.
The characters will star in their own one-shots during the event, as well as appear in the main story and tie-ins.
