Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day saviour, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with BATMANTM and SUPERMANTM at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

DESIGN

The reverse image features vibrant colour over intricate engraving that results in striking depictions of Superman, WONDER WOMANTM and Batman in action, with each distinctive super hero occupying a separate segment of the reverse design. At the top, a close-up of Superman finds the MAN OF STEELTM in the midst of a confrontation, as viewed from the perspective of his foe; with his fist raised, he bears an angry, intent expression on his face while his red cape rises up behind him to denote movement. In the middle segment, Wonder Woman keeps her sword in its sheath on her back; but she projects a steely glare as she crosses her forearms in front of her, with bracelets in position to deflect any projectile. In the bottom portion of the reverse, the silhouettes of eight bats in flight can be seen behind Batman, whose iconic costume is temporarily replaced by metallic battle armour, as he raises his hand in anticipation of his opponent’s move. As a common element throughout the reverse, the background is filled with carefully positioned polygon shapes that are contrasted through the use of frosted finishes, effectively creating a ‘shattered glass’ effect; this is highly symbolic, for it represents the ‘shattering’ of what was established in Man of Steel and the challenges that lie ahead after Superman has revealed himself to the world.
