The search for even more ratings gold continues as the loathsome Mojo - tyrannical other-dimensional media mogul and longtime enemy of the X-Men - returns with a deranged new scheme!

Forever Evil Aftermath: Batman vs Bane #1

With the heroes of the world out of the way, there was nothing to stop the criminals, madmen and monsters from running wild... and Gotham City has been no exception.

But all that ends tonight... because the Dark Knight has finally returned to make things right!
