Superman: Arkham

Part 1 of Superman: Arkham.

Superman, dressed all in black, finds himself locked away in Arkham Asylum, presided over by warden Solomon Grundy, having been charged with ... murder! Knowing this is all wrong, he breaks out, and soon finds Bizarro, this world's hero, hot on his heels in pursuit.

Plot (Spoilers):

For reasons unknown, the world has been remade, and Superman is being held in Arkham Asylum, presided over by warden Solomon Grundy. Superman breaks out but Bizarro, this world's hero, is called in to apprehend him.

Superman finds a wanted poster for himself, stating he's a murderer. He knows he's been charged with killing Lex Luthor, but no one knows who that is, and Superman knows he's not a killer. Mr. Mxyzptlk appears and tries to talk to Superman, but a train magically appears and crushes him before he can get Superman's attention.

Instinctively, Superman makes his way to see Lois Lane, who in this world is head of Lane Corp. Bizarro catches up with him and Superman is flung in to Lois' office through the window. Superman begs for help, and for a moment Lois suddenly feels something for Superman, before snapping out of it and ordering her guard dogs to attack.

Bizarro takes Superman away, and their fight is seen by Graveyard Lad - Bizarro's number 1 fan, and an alternate version of Jimmy Olsen. Their fight takes them to a pier where they are interrupted by a twisted version of Aquaman (fish head and body). Bizarro freezes him, then takes a defeated Superman back to Arkham.

At the end of the night, like every night, a wailing cry of pain from an unknown person can be heard.
