The best part of Dark Knights of Steel is the new characters, specifically the villains, who happen to be disturbing combinations of existing Batman and Superman foes. For example, Ra’s al Ghul is a powerful wizard, but he’s also the host of the demon Etrigan, like Jason Blood in the main canon. The most interesting combination is also the main villain of the story: the Green Man, aka a Jokerized Lex Luthor who wields the power of a Green Lantern ring.

This villain was a corrupt adviser of King Thomas Wayne who lost this spot after neglecting the Kingdom. He then killed Thomas and Martha Wayne, and orchestrated Jor-El’s assassination. Although his story is barely beginning, the Green Man is on his way to becoming a staple among DC's more creative villains.
