SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read DETECTIVE COMICS #23.3: THE SCARECROW yet and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now (major spoilers ahead!).
Following the events of “Trinity War,” Gotham City has lost the protection of the Dark Knight. As the numerous members of Batman’s Rogues Gallery begin to come out of the shadows, each villain realizes that they’re not willing to give up the city they feel rightfully belongs to them now.
They say that a hero is only as good as his villain—which is arguably what makes Batman so dang amazing. After all, let’s face it, the Dark Knight holds, hands down, the most infamous and recognizable Rogues Gallery in the history of comic books.
From the Joker, the Riddler and Catwoman to Mr. Freeze, Poison Ivy and Two-Face, to Penguin, Scarecrow and oh so many more, the ill-famed inmates of Arkham, the criminally capricious citizens of Gotham both frighten and fascinate comic fans of all ages with their complexity, depth and completely insanely bazonkers gimmicks.
