What’s it about?
In the film Man of Steel, Superman ended up fighting a fellow Kryptonian, a man named General Zod. Their battle ended up pretty much destroying an entire city. Batman is not amused, particularly since Superman destroyed Wayne Tower in Metropolis, killing pretty much all of his employees.
He views Superman as a threat to humanity and that with his current near godlike status, he could become a dictator, worse than Genghis Khan and Julius Caesar, Hitler and Stalin…because he truly does have godlike power. Lex Luthor, tech mogul and billionaire shares Batman’s concerns.
For his part, Superman views Batman’s brutal methods of dispensing justice as excessive and a domestic terrorist. And when they finally clash due to the machinations of Lex Luthor, the world is changed forever.
