The first is Batman, who probably has his own ideas for Lex; the other is The Joker, who also likely has his own ideas, but who just maybe wants to see this twisted doppelgänger sent back to the Dark Multiverse he came from. It’s a gamble Lex has to take, because the Infected are gearing up for round two!

Yup. Choppy linework and wonky anatomy all around. Look at that leg on the cover, seriously pick up an anatomy book.
