A new clip from DC’s latest animated adaptation, Superman: Red Son, sees the Soviet version of Batman killing people.
Batman’s “no killing” rule has been open to debate for years and reached new heights after Batman v Superman came out. While Batman not killing the criminals he faces has become a huge part of the character over the years, there have still been many versions of Batman crossing the line, including the early days of the character. Of course, Mark Millar’s Superman: Red Son is an Elseworlds story that imagines DC’s superheroes during the Soviet Union.
On Tuesday, DC’s animated Superman: Red Son adaptation was released digitally. To celebrate, IGN released an exclusive clip of Batman, voiced by Roger Craig Smith, brutally killing people. You can check out the Superman: Red Son clip below!
