Exclusive: Find Out How 'Batman: Endgame,' Well... Ends

Plus, your first look at four spin-off one-shots from DC Comics.

If you've ever wondered who would come out on top in the final battle between Batman and The Joker, wonder no more. This March, DC Comics releases the finale to "Batman: Endgame," as well as four one-shots tying into the issue -- "Batman #40," that is -- by writer Scott Snyder and artists Greg Capullo and Danny Miki.

And though IRL the "Endgame" has just begun, MTV News is pleased to exclusively reveal your first look at the covers to "Batman #40" and "Batgirl: Endgame #1," as well as the solicit text (preview blurbs about an issue sent to stores and readers to tease 'em into ordering, for those not in the know) for those issues, "Detective Comics: Endgame #1," "Gotham Academy: Endgame #1," and "Arkham Manor: Endgame #1."

And for those of us who aren't living three months in the future, please note that there are pretty major spoilers below for the storyline:
