DC Preview Pages: Batman Endgame #35 Pits Bruce Wayne Against the Justice League

DC's Cinematic Universe will see Batman rumble with Superman in 2016's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. But in the comics universe, Bruce Wayne is already butting heads with the entire Justice League in the upcoming Batman: Endgame #35, which celebrates the caped crusader's 75th anniversary.

The series is illustrated by Batman and Quasar's Greg Capullo, and written by Scott Snyder, who is known for writing several Batman series and for his collaboration with Stephen King on American Vampire. The series is the largest in cast and scope that the pair has ever created, featuring Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, and more.

The reasons for the animosity between Batman and the Justice League are unknown, but according to Snyder, the arc is "meant to burn certain things down and then also set new things up. It alters the mythology and status quo of Batman in ways that both will give a lot of resolution to some of the things we've set up in our run, and then also leave you in a place where it'll give a lot of opportunity for me and Greg to tell new kinds of stories with Batman moving forward afterwards - assuming he survives."

Snyder promises plenty of familiar faces in the series, if not the ones fans are most expecting: "Whenever I ask people what villain they'd like to see, there's always someone who yells Condiment King or Crazy Quilt, and I promise there will even be somebody of that eclectic background reinvented but also his major rogues and allies in various ways."
