In the recent Batman/Superman #4, we learned the identity of the new Secret Six. These former heroes have been infected by the Batman Who Laughs, transforming into dark and twisted versions of themselves, all working in service of channeling their energies to open a portal to the Dark Multiverse. Shazam, Jim Gordon, Blue Beetle, Hawkman, and Supergirl are all among the newly formed villain team. The other member? Former Titans leader Donna Troy, now known as Deathbringer. This week, in The Infected: Deathbringer, discover what brought Donna Troy to this point.

In this week’s exclusive preview of The Infected: Deathbringer, out this Wednesday, we see the Titans working to quell an outburst of violence in a town full of metahumans. But the story really begins several weeks earlier, in the lead up to the violence…

Donna Troy is a hero. She fought alongside friends, led the Titans into battle, and buried more friends in the line of duty than she cares to remember. She’s strong, she’s brave, she’s one of the fiercest warriors on the planet…and she’s the Batman Who Laughs’ next target for infection! Spinning out of the events of The Batman Who Laughs and Batman/Superman comes the story of a hero who is done with bringing peace to a world that cannot be trusted with it. A woman who’s past has been her greatest adversary, and whose newly awakened dark side is ready to burn it all down and forge a new destiny. No more peace. Only…Deathbringer!
