Josh Williamson has been doing an excellent job carrying on the Batman Who Laughs storyline in Batman/Superman, which includes the most recent events — Superman infecting himself in the last issue.

Later in the issue the Batman Who Laughs gains yet another upper hand as he outwits Superman and Batman and takes over the Fortress of Solitude with the Blue Beetle. It’s not until he seems to have beaten Batman and Superman does he lament there is still another enemy he must face.
Via captions, we learn the Batman Who Laughs’ plan to kill everything in the multiverse has another foe outside of the heroes in his way. Who might that be?
Someone very busy lately in Scott Snyder and James Tynion’s “Justice/Doom War” storyline of course.
Apparently Lex Luthor and Perpetua have a new foe to be concerned with in the Batman Who Laughs!
What do you think this means for the Batman Who Laughs and his ongoing assault? Cant Batman and Superman use this to defeat both Lex and Batman Who Laughs? We’ll just have to keep reading to find out!
This is just a snippet of the story in Batman/Superman #3 and I highly recommend you read the whole thing to get the full picture.
