Written by PAUL CORNELL; Art by JIMMY BROXTON; Cover by YANICK PAQUETTE; 1:10 Variant cover by BILLY TUCCI
Just as Gotham City has Batman and Robin, London has Knight and Squire – the British heroes and frequent allies of The Dark Knight!

The experiments lead to mutation and death, until only one remains – Isaiah Bradley.
