Salvation Run is just around the corner, and DC has announced a new variant cover by Joe Corroney.

Take the jump for the full cover and more information about the series.

They are the two most dangerous criminal masterminds in the world: Lex Luthor and the Joker. And, along with the rest of the world’s nastiest super villains, they have just been exiled by the government to the remote planet known as “Salvation.” Will these villains, freed from the constraints of a society that fears and scorns them, embrace this opportunity to reform? Will they begin a new era of redemption? Or will these legendary evils go for each other’s throats, while the fate of two worlds hangs in the balance?

  1. Weird. It’s like “Secret Wars” except one team’s bus broke down.

    And wouldn’t Poison Ivy go completely bats*** insane?

  2. I am interested as to how this will come about. ManBat is sort of a victim and what has he really done?Its usually property damage if I recall correctly. I know from somewhere on the internets that Catwoman will be heading back to the dark side, but isn’t she a thief?I think they may have to open a work-release planet or a halfway house planet too.

  3. Did anyone else notice that their crossing Gotham: Underground, a mini, over with Salvation Run another mini. Both of which already tie into Countdown. Good grief. I hoe Final Crisis puts and end to this silliness.

  4. …why do I have flashbacks from current (or not so long ago) Marvel continuity???

    …a prison on another planet (or another dimension) where all the villains are?

    …reminds you of anything?


    *coughPlanet Hulk*cough*

    …furthermore, I’d hardly call Catwoman one of the “nastiest” villains in the DC verse…and the same goes for Captain Cold and Heat Wave…

    …what’s all this crap????????

    …I’m usually way more DC than I am a Marvel, but seeing stuff like this makes me wanna cry…


  5. Dr. Strange Cubicle on

    My guess is that Catwoman is there either as a spy/agent for Batman (as part of the Outsiders) or possibly because of retaliation for her and the Outsiders interfering with Waller and the Suicide Squad in Outsiders #50.

    *cough* Kingdom Come*, *cough* Phantom Zone *cough*, *cough* Alcatraz *cough*, *cough* freaking Australia. oh I forgot *cough*

    And really what have the villains in 42 done? They are really just characters in limbo. These are A-list villains(Luthor, Joker, Cheetah etc) along with almost every one else on a planet. We are actually going to see what life is like on that planet, they are actually going to do something.

    Besides maybe it’s time they did the ripping off.
