Anti-Superman and Anti-Batman! They're Clark and Bruce's
Everything Superman and Batman aren't, they are! Like ruthless, evil, and disobedient of common traffic laws and courtesies. Here, Anti-Batman anti-swipes Batman into a statue of himself. Holy Antidisestablishmentarianism, Batman!
How distressing is this macabre chain of events? So distressing that Lois Lane can't get her job done! So...business pretty much as usual then, huh?
Anti-Batman: unmasked! Why, it appears to be the time-traveling young Officer Jim Gordon, fresh from his appearance in Batman: Year Minus Ten. And he would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for you meddling caped crusaders!
Which can only mean that Anti-Superman can be but one single person: young
Anti-Superman and Anti-Batman! Beware, because they just might be...your closest friends! And maybe, just maybe, if you're good, they'll come back in the New 52. THIS I SWEAR.
