In both Batman Begins and many of the Caped Crusader’s comic issues, we see the Dark Knight as a warrior with extensive combat knowledge and training, often considered as a ninja with his mastery of weapons and stealth-based fighting techniques.
But how does he hold up against the likes of the Foot Clan!
Featuring the talents of writer James Tynion IV (Batman: Eternal, Constantine) and artist Freddie E. Williams (Robin, Captain Atom), Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will also sport variant covers by Turtles co-creator, Kevin Eastman.
While the pairing of heroes does seem to be a little out there, this isn’t the first crossover for either brand of heroes. Having just come off their successful crossover with the Ghostbusters so soon after a blockbuster hit with a sequel in production, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles brand is certainly ripe for further promotion.
Most importantly, Tynion, who has just ended his run on the incredibly well-received Batman: Eternal is no stranger to having larger-than-life characters battle evil on the gritty streets of a city.
Capes or half-shells; Ra’s Al Ghul or General Krang; League of Assassins or Foot Clan; Caves or Sewers… Gotham City or New York City? The battle for against evil has begun and the Batman & the Ninja Turtles are here to save the day!
In the ongoing power struggle between the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, General Krang, and the Foot Clan, allegiances have shifted and the battle lines have been drawn. Krang concocts a plan to rid himself of both the Turtles and Shredder by transporting them to another dimension, where they land in the dark and dangerous streets of Gotham City. It isn’t long before they encounter Gotham’s most famous resident, Batman. The Caped Crusader may be their only hope of overcoming their enemies and getting back home. But not before they encounter a whole cast of Gotham’s most infamous rogues.
