Reimagines the first meeting of Batman and Superman against a backdrop of the Cold War, following their collaborations in Gotham City and Metropolis as nuclear threats escalate and Lex Luthor schemes to build a military-industrial empire.


“[A] fun read….Batman and Superman meet in this retro-flavored novel set amid the Cold War sensibilities of the 1950s.”
USA Today

The Dark Knight meets the Man of Steel in Enemies & Allies—the thrilling story of the first-ever  meeting between Batman and Superman, brilliantly imagined by New York Times bestselling author Kevin J. Anderson. One of today’s most popular writers pits the iconic superheroes against Lex Luthor and the Soviets—and each other—in a spellbinding story of destiny and duty set against the backdrop of America’s Cold War era.

& Taylor

Shortly after Clark Kent interviews Bruce Wayne for a feature in the Daily Planet, their alter egos cross paths as Batman and Superman are drawn into Lex Luthor's scheme for world domination--a scheme that involves the Soviets, death-ray transmitters, and all the "heat" of the Cold War.
Reimagines the first meeting of Batman and Superman against a backdrop of the Cold War, in a tale that follows their collaborations in Gotham City and Metropolis in the wake of rumors about a flying saucer crash, escalating nuclear threats, and Lex Luthor's scheme to build a military-industrial empire.

Quick and fun read. I was hoping they would kind of base Batman vs. Superman on this. They do fight. And there is a thousand possible ways to form the Justice League from Anderson's take.
