New Batman Villain Miracle Molly Debuts in May

DC is looking to introduce another breakout Batman character in the vein of Punchline in 2021. Miracle Molly is a new villain debuting in May's Batman #108 by the series' regular team of writer James Tynion IV and artist Jorge Jimenez, who together created Punchline, Clownhunter, and Ghost-Maker in the pages of story arcs like Batman: Their Dark Designs and Batman: The Joker War.

"Going undercover to learn more about the sudden appearance of the transhumanist Unsanity Collective, Batman meets Miracle Molly, the Collective's second-in-command and a full-blown engineering genius that can repair any kind of tech," reads DC's description of the new villain.

DC's announcement includes a look at the main cover featuring Miracle Molly by Jimenez, a portrait-style variant cover by Stanley "Artgerm" Lau, a 1:25 variant card stock cover by Riccardo Federici, and six black and white pages from May 4's Batman #108 (in the gallery below), an unusually generous offering of early preview images for the usually conservative publisher.
