Cataclysm' part 4, continued from BATMAN #553. While taking Bane back to Gotham City, an earthquake strikes and the villain escapes! As destruction rains down, Azrael chases his lost prisoner. Continued in DETECTIVE COMICS #720.
The programmer behind the System is revealed as Azrael attempts to shatter his lifelong conditioning once and for all. Friends and enemies become interchangeable as Jean-Paul Valley tries to escape the ice cathedral of the Order of St. Dumas with his friend Brian Bryan. But in their way stands the new Azrael!
Jean-Paul investigates the unusual vampire sightings in town, but instead finds himself face-to-face with a werewolf! Unable to activate the "angelic nature" within him, Jean-Paul loses to the living nightmare...badly!
Ra's al Ghul makes Azrael a very special offer: abandon his quest for the System and become the next Ra's al Ghul. But first, the avenging angel must prove himself in a trial by combat! Plus, Talia shows Sister Lilhy the world outside the walls of the Order of St. Dumas, and Brian learns about the agony of recovery from alcoholism.
Batman and two Azraels collide! The new Azrael has come to Gotham City for a showdown with Sister Lilhi, but he's about to face opposition from two unexpected adversaries: Batman and the true Azrael, Jean-Paul Valley. But without the costume that gives him his strength, will Jean-Paul be of any use at all against his murderous successor?
The "Agent of the Bat" faces a madman with a bat when he runs afoul of a homicidal athlete seeking revenge on those who taunted him throughout his career. Will Azrael choke when faced with a foe with metahuman strength? Or are other forces at work that will change Jean-Paul's life forever?
When a long-forgotten movie serial inspires a rash of grave robberies, only Azrael can get to the bottom of the crimes. Why is this movie so important to the criminals? And who is the secret mastermind behind their ghoulish deeds? Learn the shocking answer in "The Amazing Adventures of Captain Death!"
Believing St. Dumas has given him a sacred task, the increasingly unstable Azrael ratchets up the intensity of his war on crime all the while claiming to be Batman! More volatile than ever, Jean-Paul's metahuman-level strength might be enough for him to vanquish normal criminals, but this issue sees the return of an old foe who's anything but normal.
On Easter Sunday of April 1941, a young woman pushes through the holiday crowds, racing for her life through the streets of Manhattan. It's a chase that leads from the bustling American metropolis all the way to Berlin, the dark heart of the Nazi regime... a chase of screeching taxis and motorcycle escapes, of a fantastic battle between a German U-boat and an autogyro over Coney Island! Like marionettes dangling from invisible hands, neither Allies nor Axis agents can tell if they are the puppeteers... or the dolls whose strings get cut! Behind it all, The Shadow looms, a master of men with cold, hollow laughter and blazing .45 pistols! The acclaimed, complete Shadow 1941: Hitler's Astrologer collaboration of Batman scribe Denny O'Neil and artist Mike Kaluta, available for the first time in over two decades, completely remastered!
