A major crossover event that has been in the works ever since "Court of the Owls" at the dawn of The New 52 and even connects back to post-Flashpoint event "Final Crisis", "Dark Nights – Metal" is a masterpiece story created by writer Scott Snyder (All-Star Batman – Ends of the Earth, Flashpoint – Project Superman) and artist Greg Capullo (Haunt, Spawn).

These two have worked up the core six-issue limited series that have a number of related tie-in issues that comes in "The Road to Metal", "Dark Knights Rising" and "The Resistance" books to fill the necessary gaps to make things matter by a few other.

Writers James Tynion IV (Detective Comics – Rise of the Batmen, Detective Comics – The Victim Syndicate) and Tim Seeley (Batman – Night of the Monster Men, Nightwing – Better Than Batman) along with various other creators have contributed to the plot.

Artists Andy Kubert (Origin, Ultimate Iron Man), Ethan Van Sciver (The Flash – Rebirth, Green Lantern – Rebirth), Jim Lee (Batman – Hush, Superman – For Tomorrow), John Romita Jr. (Superman – Before Truth, Superman – The Men of Tomorrow) and Tyler Kirkham (The Darkness, Tomb Raider) have also take part in illustrating the arc for readers.

Ever since DC Rebirth, DC Comics has never done a crossover this big and it was actually a scheme to re-introduce many new characters and teams into play. References of classic sagas were mentioned and elements were used to build a new tomorrow. Some of the noteworthy appearances were made by Black Adam, Black Manta, Clayface, Deathstroke, Doctor Fate, Nightwing, Robin, Steel, Suicide Squad, Teen Titans and Vandal Savage.

A link to "Death of The Family" and "Endgame" arc was drawn to detailing the origin of Metal and how it is related to Batman. We are treated with an epic team-up during climax that was most unexpected and it even rivals the awesomeness of the World's Finest duo.

Someone enters the Batcave to shatter down a display case where the Batsuit was hanging and took it. Suddenly, images of a shrouded figure beating up trigger-happy cops chasing an unarmed suspect blows up on media, who appears to be Batman.

Always questioned about her inheritance, she finds Superman inside the Fortress of Solitude, who has willingly frozen himself on an icy throne.

Following the ground-breaking success of "The Dark Knight Returns" and "The Dark Knight Strikes Again", writer Frank Miller (300, Ronin) returned with third installment of The Dark Knight Trilogy from DC Comics in 2017 after it started in 2015. Brian Azzarello (Wonder Woman – Blood, Wonder Woman – Guts) also helped Miller devise a more balanced plot this time than his past efforts of writing senseless superhero violence.

Artist Andy Kubert (Before Watchmen – Nite Owl, Damian – Son of Batman) draws core story from all issues while Klaus Janson returned to work on tie-in shorts, also set on the same alternate reality of Earth-31 from DC Multiverse.

The Master Race Rises

Whereas "The Dark Knight Returns" kind of expected all readers to assume the worst have happened to our vigilante hero before they even began and "The Dark Knight Strikes Again" just started throwing things at us without any explanation, DKIII actually tries to dive slightly deeper than before while leaving possibilities for a sequel.

Aside from regular primary character of this series, AquamanThe FlashGreen Lantern Hal Jordan, Hawkman and Hawkgirl appeared throughout the story. Hopefully, we will see young Jonathan grow up to be Superboy as his elder sister becomes a Supergirl in this brave-new world.
