Description

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

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.

Back cover copy

It was a time of international tensions, a time of hope and fear--when rock 'n' roll, UFOs, and the Communist menace preoccupied America; the first time in history when human beings had the power to destroy their world.

It was a time when heroes were needed more than ever.

Evil is loose in the world. As the United States and the Soviet Union race to build their nuclear stockpiles, two extraordinary men are called upon to form an uneasy alliance. Studies in opposites--shadow and light--a Dark Knight and a Man of Steel must overcome their mutual distrust to battle a darkness that threatens humankind. And when the paths of these titans cross, a bold and exciting new chapter of history will be written . . . and nothing will ever be the same.

Review quote

Positioning all the superpowered heroics squarely between the era's futuristic optimism and postwar paranoia, this is a refreshing diversion from the grimness of The Dark Knight or the tedious Superman Returns. Injects a welcome dose of retro exuberance into the capes-and-tights routine.--Kirkus Reviews
