Exclusive Preview: Batman Universe #4

Batman can handle almost anything thrown at him, but he’s still out his element in Batman Universe. The Dark Knight and his Justice League teammate, Green Lantern Hal Jordan, have been thrown back in time. The man responsible for their predicament is the immortal Vandal Savage, who used an enigmatic Fabergé egg that once belonged to the Old West’s greatest hero, Jonah Hex. However, Batman and Green Lantern may soon get some answers from Jonah Hex himself, if they can convince him not to shoot them where they stand.

In Superhero Hype’s exclusive preview for Batman Universe #4, Brian Michael Bendis and artist Nick Derington pick up as Batman and Green Lantern try to explain themselves. Jonah Hex happens to be one of the few men in the Old West who might actually believe them. In the future, Hex has gone forwards and backwards in time as well. But in his present, Hex is understandably skeptical about Batman and Green Lantern’s fantastical story.
