SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read FOREVER EVIL AFTERMATH: BATMAN VS. BANE #1 and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now (major spoilers ahead!).

What does Gotham City without Batman’s protection look like? Take a look at our exclusive preview of EVIL AFTERMATH: BATMAN VS. BANE #1, here, and see for yourself!

In the fallout after the Crime Syndicate’s terror-spree, Bane rules Gotham with all the strength and determination we know he’s capable of. His vision of Gotham: a city where the strongest Gothamites have the power and aren’t left unprotected. His is a ‘survival of the fittest’ scenario that served him well when the Syndicate threw open the gates of both Blackgate Penitentiary and Arkham Asylum and left Gotham City to fend for (destroy) itself!

During FOREVER EVIL: ARKHAM WAR, Bane proved his right to rule Gotham when he took down Killer Croc, and he’s shown Gotham that anyone can wear a bat-suit, so why would anyone in Gotham welcome Batman back? Why does Gotham City need Batman?

Below, take a look at a double-page spread from FOREVER EVIL AFTERMATH: BATMAN VS. BANE #1 as Bane maintains his version of “protect and serve” over the citizens of Gotham. Then, sound off in the comments section about what you think you’ll see when Batman and Bane finally come face to face!

FOREVER EVIL AFTERMATH: BATMAN VS. BANE #1, written by Peter J. Tomasi and illustrated by Scot Eaton, Jaime Mendoza and Scott Hanna, is available in stores now.
