Written by:Scott Snyder
Cut to their core by an act of unspeakable betrayal, the team must think fast to regroup and recover-but with two of their lives hanging by a thread and a third taken captive to be sacrificed to the Beast, hope and practical solutions are in short supply. As a demon army prepares to rise from the earth on the eve of America’s bicentennial celebration, an old friend of the VMS steps in to assist and Gus gets a chance to rewrite his grim fate. In the end, their efforts will all hinge on Skinner Sweet’s final decision to either retreat and preserve what’s left of his limited life, or to face his fear of death and risk it all for Pearl and the future of humanity.

Even if the ghost turns out to be a fake, that still doesn’t answer the real question: How did someone get into the Batcave to stage the phony phantom-and does it mean Batman’s foes have cracked the secret of his true identity?!

“The One Who Fell” part two! Thought to have been defeated long ago by Superman and his allies, the ancient Shadowbreed have returned in a horrifying new form, and Superman’s oldest ally has been assimilated into their ranks.

But Superman’s old allies kept terrible secrets from him, and both he and Jon are more vulnerable against the Shadowbreed than they know.
