Can't deny that it delivers on the "grim" part, at least.
Definitely a grumpy Bruce here.

Though... while the Dark Multiverse is an interesting idea (What If... everything went really wrong?), most of these Evil Batmen stories are... well, a little repetitive.
Batman turns evil. He kills absolutely everyone in his path. The end.
I suppose that might have something to do with most of the stories just being one-shots, and the general nature of the Dark Multiverse being that this is the entire point. But still, a little variety maybe?

Couldn't we get an evil Wonder Woman? (Or if we're still doing the "evil Batman steals a Justice League's schtick" thing, have one be an evil Green Arrow. Turnabout's fair play...)

Though reading some of it, while it does seem like Snyder is playing the concept relatively straight, wondering if part of this is parodying the way Frank Miller writes Batman, given the lift straight from Year One, by taking that attitude and throwing away the dial.
(I mean, Bruce shooting the bat, that seems too over the top to be entirely serious.)

Well, in Curse of Brimstone we got an evil Firestorm (and an original avatar of the Green).

The variety just comes from very much tangential comics, as usual.

The Injustice universe version of Wondy is enough. I'm not sure my heart can take much more.

I'm really not a fan of depressing versions of the characters, so I've been largely unimpressed with the various evil Batmen and their "everybody is dead, Dave" worlds.

But I got to admit, while I have no interest in this issue as a whole, I did genuinely like the reference to TDKR.

The one consolation of being a murder Batman is the inexplicable brief solace you feel when you kill that guy in the red hood.

That was strangely beautiful.

The art looks really cool at least. But yeah, I'm firmly in the camp that thinks the Dark Multiverse stuff is a little goofy and unnecessary, especially given that its primary use so far has been in giving us evil Batmans.
