Washington DC [USA], May 16 (ANI): American comic book artist Neal Adams, the artist behind the now-classic Batman villain Ra's al Ghul, is all set to return with his most famous creation.

DC has announced to release an all-new six-issue mini-series titled 'Batman vs Ra's al Ghul', this August, tying into DC's "Year of the Villain" event.

"Ra's al Ghul, leader of the League of Assassins, grandfather of Bruce Wayne's son and the only person in the world capable of going sword-to-sword with Batman, returns this August during DC's Year of the Villain in a new six-issue mini-series, BATMAN VS RA'S AL GHUL, written and drawn by Ra's al Ghul's co-creator himself, legendary artist Neal Adams," reads DC's official website.

The mini-series will revive DC's bad guy Ra's al Ghul, an immortal assassin also known as the Demon's Head, who believes that he needs to save the world, and in the process decides to undo the good work done by Bruce Wayne's alter ego.

Penned by Adams, the plot line of 'Batman vs Ra's al Ghul' is both dark and complicated. Demon's Head is on the mission of killing Batman but is interrupted when Gotham City comes under siege by terrorists.

"Adams shows a Gotham City under siege by terrorists, with Batman determined to find the source. But when Boston Brand, aka Deadman, tries to intervene, he discovers an even more disturbing and deadly truth: the terrorists are led by an inhuman monster! Ra's al Ghul volunteers his own private security force to aid the GCPD, and now they are the saviours standing between nuclear terror and the townspeople! But al Ghul's true goal is hidden from everyone's eyes. He will destroy the city and kill Batman--this time for good. Watching in horror is...Bruce Wayne?" reads DC's description of the series.

Apart from this, DC has something more planned for its fans. To coincide with the debut of Adams' new mini-series, the publishing company will also release facsimile edition of Batman No. 232, the story that introduced Ra's al Ghul for the very first time, reprinted in its original format. (ANI)
