What surprised me more about this origin stories for the “Dark Knights of the Dark Multiverse” was that since they were coming from a parallel dimension zone called “Dark Multiverse”, well, I thought that it would be something like in the classic cartoon episode of Superfriends titled “Universe of Evil” were the heroes were twisted evil counterparts, but surprisingly, those so-called “Dark Multiverse Earths” were quite similar to the usual parallel Earths of the regular multiverse, at least in the seven presented Earths where the Dark Batmen risen…

…where the heroes are good, and even the Batman of each of those Earths were good persons too, and even their “improvements” were conceived out to do good on their own each Earths and save them from stuff that they really considered were wrong…

…but as you well know…

…the road to Hell is paved out of good intentions…

…Batman is merged with The Flash, taking control of the Speed Force twisting it, The Red Death is born!

…Batman develops an A.I. assistant based on his murdered Alfred and tricking the help of Cyborg, becomes The Murder Machine!

…Young Bruce Wayne, right in the moment of his parents’ murder, he got a Green Lantern power ring and using his overwhelming willpower, corrupts the program of the power ring, suffocating the light of the power ring, with his vengeful inner darkness, and The Dawnbreaker risen!

…a female counterpart, Bryce Wayne, in her war against Atlantean forces, she twisted her DNA, becoming an Atlantean-like warrior, The Drowned surges!

…Batman battles side-by-side with Wonder Woman against Ares, God of War, but after the Amazon Princess fell, he didn’t hesitate to become the new god of war, The Merciless!

…Batman is resentful against Superman, since the Kryptonian offered a false sense of hope to his Earth, and after the Last Son of Krypton started to destroy everything, Batman need to actívate his twisted protocol, merging with Doomsday’s DNA, turning into The Devastator!

…Batman reacts against the ultimate evil act of the Joker, but the Clown Prince of Crime has the last card on his sleeve, and The Batman Who Laughs is born! And becoming the primary messenger of a bigger threat to recruit the Dark Knights of the Dark Multiverse…

…since their Earths are doomed to perish, so it’s time leave them and…

…to engage a full invasion against Earth-0 in the regular Multiverse!!!
