Synopsis for "Batman - The Superman of Planet X"Edit

The Batman of the planet Zur-En-Arrh teleports the real Batman to Zur-En-Arrh, where Batman/Bruce Wayne has powers equivalent to Superman's. Batman/Bruce Wayne assists the alien Batman in fighting off a horde of robot invaders. After the robots are destroyed, the alien Batman gives Batman/Bruce Wayne his Bat-Radia device as a keepsake, and returns him to Earth.

Batman of Zur En Arrh

NotesEdit

  • "The Menace of False Face" is reprinted in Batman #198.
  • The Red Mask gang has no connection, and should not be confused, with the Red Hood Gang.
  • Wally Weskit does not make an appearance in this issue, and is featured only as one of False Face's many disguises.
  • First and only appearance of the citizens of Zur-En-Arrh.


TriviaEdit

  • When Grant Morrison took over the Batman series in September 2006, he immediately began referencing classic moments from the character's career, including utilizing a version of Bat-Mite and reusing a costume and dialogue from issue #156. Among the references was "Zur En Arrh," which appeared very nearly covering an alley and again on a dumpster in issue #655. The phrase continued to appear innocuously until the "Batman R.I.P." story arc began, at which point it was mentioned as part of the "next issue" section.
