ItÍs the JokerÍs worldƒwe just die in it! ItÍs another typical day in Gotham City. Superman, the worldÍs most dangerous criminal, has burst free of his cell in Arkham Asylum. The only one who can track him down is the worldÍs greatest hero, Bizarro. Their epic battle destroys property owned by the bald but brilliant billionaire Lois Laneƒwait„what?! If Superman isnÍt crazy, that means the whole world has gone insane, and only one man can be responsible.
