For those not in the know, the Batman Who Laughs is an alternative universe version of, well, Batman. In his universe, he finally went through with killing the Joker, only to find his arch-nemesis had installed a failsafe that infected and slowly turned him into his own version of the villain.

In Dark Legion, you'll be tasked with recruiting heroes and villains from across the DC Universe, building up your own personal Batcave to train them in and as your headquarters, before taking the fight to the Batman Who Laughs. But judging by this new trailer, he's got more than a few of Earth's most powerful heroes already in his clutches.

You're having a laugh

While some may scoff at the idea of the Batman Who Laughs, we can't deny that the idea of being able to recruit both heroes and villains is a pretty interesting concept. It's not the first time that's been done of course, but it does open up a wide swathe of some of DC's best characters for you to team up and build your dream league.
