One of the key elements of Dark Knights: Metal in the DC Comics universe is that Batman has unlocked a doorway to the Dark Multiverse, and through that doorway has come several incarnations of Batman that were never meant to live, but have. Over the past three weeks we’ve met the Red Death, the Murder Machine, and the Dawnbreaker. And now, via New York Comic Con, we’re getting a glimpse of The Drowned.
The Drowned is the only female member of the Dark Knights group, and she’s a fusion between Batman and Aquaman, though how is a bit unclear at present. That said, given the panel above and the cover for the issue below, we can suspect that her use of aquatic powers is about to get the world very damp.
Batman: The Drowned will release on October 18th.
