"When Superman and the Justice League declared themselves the ultimate authority on planet Earth, only Batman stood against them...but now, Batman is defeated. His resistance army has suffered major losses and dwindled to nearly nothing. The man who always has a back-up plan for his back-up plans has nothing. Except for one final, desperate gambit .... With no other options, Batman turns to Ares, the god of war, to enlist the Greek pantheon into the battle with Superman."--Back cover.
