Spawn/Batman | Comics

spawn and batman
Spawn/Batman | Comics
The creature of night and bane of the criminal minds, Batman is now in New York city, investigating a huge storage of high-tech weaponries. He suspects that this hidden arsenal belongs to the soviet, but yet not sure. After dealing with a small gang of thugs, he is suddenly attacked by a huge cyborg that severely beat him down within seconds. With a cybernatic gauntlet that he found in the armory, Batman fights the robot back before it could puddle him any further. And after quite an effort, he eventually disables the cyborg assailant but to his surprise, he finds out a human inside the cybernetic exoskeleton but with no organs except for the head. Just as he was about to save the man in the exo-suit, the robot self destructs itself, rendering the head lifeless before spilling any information.

Two sick minded street jerks tried to put a sleeping homeless man on fire just for kicks but the fire chased them instead. While running for their lives, they met the lieutenant of Hell, Spawn. Spawn puts them both on hellfire to teach them a lesson for their deeds. Batman engages Spawn by surprise and these two creatures of night fights an intense battle and beat each other up to the end. Spawn faces one of the cyborgs but quickly subdues it. Soon, Batman and Spawn came into terms that they both are looking for one common enemy that has a major sinister agenda which if not stopped in time will cost many innocent lives.

Here is your link for "Spawn/Batman" One-Shot inter-company crossover storyline from DC Comics and Image Comics.


Following the success of their popular superhero character Batman and Spawn, DC Comics and Image Comics jointly published this one-shot inter-company crossover in 1994. Writer Frank Miller (The Dark Knight Returns, The Dark Knight Strikes Again) and Spawn's creator Todd McFarlance were assigned to create the plot where this two fan favorite superhero will meet each other and will create history and it surely is going to leave a mark. However, despite being a spectacular one-shot crossover, this storyline does not take place in the regular continuity of the respected characters own monthly ongoing series and does not effect any of their current plot.

Daredevil/Batman – Eye for an Eye | Comics

Marvel's "Man Without Fear" meets The Dark Knight of the DC Universe who strikes terror in the hearts of the cowardly criminal mobs of all sorts. Both of these urban heroes rely a lot on their own skills and the very athletic physique they possess, which has made them both a legend to their adversaries in all places.

Daredevil/Batman – Eye for an Eye | Comics

They both have spent their whole lifetime practicing to defend innocent people who cannot save themselves from the vile monsters of the society. Orphaned as a child, they both chose the very hard path to serve the lives of the common masses. These two vigilante heroes came face to face when two of their deadliest enemies decided to become allied forces together for greater evil.

While investigating a murder mystery in the sewers, Batman encounters the blind superhero Daredevil there, unbeknownst of the latter's intention and surprise attacked him. They tussle and haggle a bit for sometime, but soon realize that they are too good for each other to defeat and that they are mistakenly attacking each other by thinking the other as an opponent.

Actually it is Batman's nemesis, the villainous Two-Face who has now teamed up with one of Daredevil's excessively bulky and incredibly super-strong adversary Mr. Hyde and they both are planning to get their hands on a deadly genetic device capable of immense power. If Batman and Daredevil do not work together and figure the actual plot of these two villains in time, then there will be heavy casualties for sure and it will be too late for both of them to act and save the day ever again.

Batman – The Killing Joke | Comics

The Joker is considered as an agent of chaos to everyone who knows him. Batman goes to Arkham Asylum to pay The Joker a casual visit and talk things down to end the ever-going madness between them only to find out that he is facing an imposter who just took the clown place in the prison.

After escaping Arkham Asylum, he decides to capture and torture Police Commissioner James Gordon to an extent that could possibly made him lose grip over his moral beliefs. So, he drags Gordon to street, dragged him to an amusement park to strip naked and locked him up in a cage.

Then to add some more, Joker shoots his daughter Barbara and made him watch the naked stills of her. Along way, he also elaborates his own story of a “Rough-Day” that turned him to this. Many years ago in Gotham City, an engineer left his job in a chemical company to pursue the career of a stand-up comedian, which failed badly in every step.

In a desperate attempt to support his pregnant wife, he joins two petty criminals in a robbery but learns of his wife’s sudden death in an accident at the last moment. This made him to give up on the plan but those two forced him to co-operate and made him wear a cylinder-like red mask to become the Red Hood.

Upon entering the chemical plant, the thugs were shot and he accidentally fell into a vat of chemicals when confronted the Batman. This, pretty much ruined his appearance and mixed with his "One Bad Day", he turned into the Joker.
