Joshua Williamson Introduces A New Villain To The BATMAN Universe… Meet Abyss

With Batman #118 DC Comics is introducing a new villain to the Bat-Universe. Meet ABYSS, a brand new creation from Joshua Williamson.



Batman (DC Comics)

This December writer Joshua Williamson is taking over the reigns of DC Comics main Batman book. Picking up directly from the Fear State arc, Williamson will debut with a four-issue arc with artist Jorge Molina (X-Men).

This brand new arc will find the Caped Crusader leaving Gotham City on the trail of a new mystery involving Batman, Inc., and a new foe: Abyss.

In the latest DC Connect the publisher has given fans a first look at the character in new concept design work by Molina.

As you can see Abyss cuts a rather intimidating figure. Cloaked in a tattered cape along with an LED helmet, the character also carries a “Shadow Blade,” a scythe which can split in to two knives and also be used as a grappling hook. The look is completed by a kevlar exoskeleton which should protect the wearer from an incoming Bat-gadet.

Batman #118 is on sale December 7, and the mystery deepens in Batman #119, on sale January 4, 2022.
