Apologies. We've corrected the art credits below. Escaping from Arkham Asylum isn’t easy, unless you have the right tools.

Bruce Wayne is back – but what has he returned to?

Following a trail of experimental equipment that was stolen from WayneTech, the new Robin finds himself in Metropolis and face-to-face with the straight-laced Guardian.

What are the villains really after, though, and who is pulling their strings? No clue, readers. But these pages should help answer some of your questions. WORLD'S FINEST #2 hits 11/25.

Writer Fabian Nicieza and artist Ramon Bachs present the second issue of the new ongoing Azrael series, as the White Ghost presents a trial to the new Azrael: save an Angel or condemn a Devil. While it may sound like a simple choice, Azrael has to decide if the perceived saint is a sinner or if the sinner is an innocent man. And what if the architect of the experiment, Ra's al Ghul, is secretly testing all those involved to see who can best serve as his ultimate Dark Knight? [gallery link="file"]

In the spirit of my favorite time of the year…here are a few things that scare me. THE FLAMINGO. This guy has death and danger written all over him. He rides a motorcycle and rips people’s faces off for fun. Oh yeah, and to top it all off, he’s dressed head-to-toe in pink. What’s not to be afraid of? If Batman & Robin thought they had their hands full with Red Hood & Scarlet, well, they haven’t seen anything yet. Check out the Flamingo in all of his pink and face-ripping glory in BATMAN & ROBIN #6.
