Batman Confronts Ra's al Ghul In Detective Comics This April

Batman certainly has a full plate this April. In addition to the much talked about crossover with The Flash, expect the Dark Knight to once again cross paths with one of his most deadly enemies in the pages of Detective Comics when Ra’s al Ghul makes his presence felt.

Although the “League of Shadows” arc has yet to kick off (the upcoming Detective Comics #50 will serve as a prologue), that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything to discuss. In fact, writer James Tynion IV has been building to this since last summer by having Jacob Kane and the Colony prepare for a war with said mysterious cabal. Batman, of course, wouldn’t have any of what Kane was saying, despite this being the third time a shadowy organization has operated under his nose in recent memory. You would think after dealing with the Black Glove and Court of Owls he would have at least given it some consideration, right?

What makes the Demon’s Head’s involvement doubly interesting is that a clear distinction has been made between the League of Assassins and League of Shadows. The former is the name we’ve long heard used in the comics and on the hit TV series Arrow. As for the latter, that was heard in Batman Begins. Common sense dictates that Ra’s is affiliated with the League of Assassins only in this continuity, so we can’t wait to learn everything we can concerning their counterparts.
