Hell Arisen, Year of the Villain
EVIL IS WINNING! Perpetua, the so-called "mother of the Multiverse," transformed Lex Luthor into the super-powered "Apex" Lex and sent him out to recruit Earth's villains to her cause. Now, with help from Lex and his recruits, Perpetua has been restored to her original godlike power, and the Multiverse lives in fear that she might wipe out all of existence. Only the forces of the Dark Multiverse can stop her--which means it's Luthor's mission to defeat the Batman Who Laughs! But if Batman and Superman couldn't stop him, what chance does Luthor have? The sinister conclusion of "Year of the Villain" begins here! Spinning out of the "Justice/Doom War" in Justice League and the epic "Infected" arc from Batman/Superman, DC's two top villains face off in a battle royal from James Tynion IV, Scott Snyder, Brian Michael Bendis, Steve Epting, Javier Fernandez, Francis Manapul, Alex Maleev and more.
