This fall, DC is inviting fans to vote on their favorite villain - with the winner to be revealed in a comic book coming this December.
That's right, once again comic fans are being called to vote on what will happen in a major event in a DC story - like 1988's "Death in the Family" Batman story arc where fans could vote on the fate of Robin. Although this time, there's less chance of killing - even if they're all villains.
This initiative, titled Villain of the Year, will encourage fans to vote on their favorite villain over the course of the fall, with the winner revealed in a special one-shot on December titled Harley Quinn: Villain of the Year #1.
In this 40-page one-shot, Harley Quinn will host an awards gala at the Legion of Doom's Hall of Doom where villains from around the multiverse (and Dark multiverse) will gather to find out who wins. This unique one-shot will be by writer Mark Russell and artist Mike Norton.
Look for the full Villain of the Year rules here at Newsarama in the coming weeks.
Here is the solicitation for Harley Quinn: Villain of the Year #1, pulled from DC's full December 2019 solicitations.
