What do the Penguin, a prison riot, Jim Gordon being incarcerated, Bane in a mech, Red Hood, Batgirl, Gotham in flames, and short-circuiting Bat-technology all have in common? They’re all happening simultaneously in this Batman arc. Over a year in the making, BATMAN ETERNAL #50 sees these plot elements coming home to roost. 

HitFix Harpy got an exclusive preview of the first four pages of the issue, including the result of Batman's showdown with Bane.
