Episode 59: Superman & Batman Generations II Part 2
Welcome to the fifty-ninth episode of The Overlooked Dark Knight. The is a non-index index show where the hosts, Andrew Leyland and Michael Bailey, look at Batman comics that rarely, if ever, get talked about.

The years covered this time out are 1986, 1997, 2008, and 2019 with Superman searching for Lex Luthor, the second Batman fighting his teammates, Knightwing’s first night out, the return of an old Superman villain, and a flashback story featuring a startling revelation about the death of Bruce Wayne’s parents!
