It's been over a decade since their first meeting. The Dark Knight and the even darker one. But this time is perhaps the most dangerous meeting of all. A battle for our heroes' very souls and sanity. Sure Batman knows how to fight The Joker, Spawn and The Clown, but what if Spawn had to deal with Batman's legendary nemesis? And for that matter, is Batman really capable of fighting a true demon from hell? Two great heroes must face each other's greatest villains!
