Solicit Synopsis:Edit

Pandora watches.

  • The mysterious Pandora appears in a crowd scene to witness the events unfold, as she appears in every #1 issue of The New 52.


  • This issue contains several references to Frank Miller's Dark Knight, specifically his characterization in The Dark Knight Returns where he is shot at on sight by the police department. The opening splash page is an homage to another panel by Jim Lee.[2] During his fight with the SWAT team, he kicks a man very similarly to a classic Miller panel.[3] On the subway train, his fight with the Joker heavily resembles a different one.[4]
