And October’s “Doom Rising” sets the stage for a rampage in November, as a shared universe cosmic event, as the skies of the DC Universe begin to burn.
In November… a rampage. But we didn’t know the name. I’ve now been told it is “Hostile Takeover”. The unthinkable becmes reality as the villains win.
But who is featured in the teasers may be cause for some spoilery concerns… so I’ll leave that for another post.

Evil is winning! Lex Luthor and The Legion of Doom conspire with Cosmic Gods, bending mankind toward a dark destiny. Elsewhere, the scourge of Leviathan spreads unchecked, seizing power in every corner of the world. And all the while the Batman Who Laughs busies himself in the shadows, aligned with no one-yet with sinister plans for all.
The carnage starts here as the badguys take center stage in “The Year of the Villain,” the most treacherous event in DC Comics history.

And our heroes will fail us.
