Why won’t Batman save the world?! For centuries Ra’s al Ghul has wanted to save Earth from the worst in humanity, and for centuries he has failed. Recently, his biggest obstacle has been Batman’s detective, the Dark Knight. Ra’s offered Batman a chance to be part of his new world order, but Batman refused. Their cold war has raged for years, but Ra will have no more. Ra’s will remove Batman from the equation and save the world, recreating him in his image and bringing the peace and prosperity that all good souls on this earth deserve. Don’t miss this epic tragedy from the all-star creative team of Tom Taylor (Nightwing, Superman: Son of Kal-El, DCeased) and Evan Rhys (Detective Comics, Blackest Night): the latest One Bad Day special, and one of the most epic yet.
