Zero Year Variant Released For Batman #24: The Red Hood Meets His Fate…Long Live The Joker?


batman 2Things look to be reaching an entirely new level in Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s Batman: Zero Year this October. A young Bruce Wayne has been trying to take down the Red Hood gang and rid Gotham of its criminal elements. The last issue saw the iconic scene of Bruce being visited by a bat, and now we’re starting to see him become the hero we know and criminals fear. Guillem March’s variant cover for Batman #24 features a scene that teases the creation of the Joker. We know in some versions of Joker’s origins he was the leader of the Red Hood. While Snyder and Capullo may have a surprise or two in store with how this scene goes down, we can probably expect to see the creation of Batman’s nemesis. CBR debuted the intriguing cover. Not that it gives us any more clues, but when you look closely at the Red Hoods’ mask, you can see Batman reaching out and trying to save him. What do you think about the cover? Do you hope we see Joker’s origins played out this October?
