Tom King’s secret DC Comics title, originally thought to be called “Sanctuary,” now has an official title. King and artist Clay Mann will launch Heroes in Crisis, which will, in fact, focus on a sanctuary in the DC Universe for super-powered individuals.

“I feel like I’m part of a rolling generation of people who spent their twenties overseas fighting terrorism,” King said in a press release. “Millions of people cycle through that machine and come home to America. And I think that sort of experience of violence is shaping who we are as a culture, and as a country. And I want to talk about that. I want to talk about that experience, the experience of what violence can do to a person, to a community, to a nation, to a world.”

The press release goes on to add, “When it’s too much, and it’s often too much, heroes go to Sanctuary — created by Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman — to find a moment of safety before returning to a universe of violence.”
King first established Sanctuary in Batman #41-43, after Poison Ivy took over the minds of every person on Earth, except for Batman and Catwoman. Another possible patient of Sanctuary could be Booster Gold, who was teased to be going insane after his time-traveling adventure with the Dark Knight in Batman #44-47.

However, more information on Heroes in Crisis is revealed, as the series will investigate “a murder mystery involving Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, Booster Gold, and the rest of the World’s Greatest Super Heroes.”

Tom King and Clay Mann’s Heroes in Crisis debuts on September 26 from DC Comics.

"There’s a new kind of crisis facing the heroes of the DC Universe, ripped from the real world headlines by C.I.A.-operative-turned-comics-writer Tom King: How does a superhero handle PTSD? Welcome to Sanctuary, an ultra-secret hospital for superheroes who’ve been traumatized by crime-fighting and cosmic combat," reads the description. "But something goes inexplicably wrong when many patients wind up dead, with two well known operators as the prime suspects: Harley Quinn and Booster Gold! It’s up to the DC Trinity of Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman to investigate – but can they get the job done in the face of overwhelming opposition?"
n addition, there is a "Heroes In Crisis: A Sanctuary Fact Sheet" credited to King. It reads in full:

- Sanctuary is a safe place for superheroes to explore the trauma of their violent lives and deal with the other effects of the fight. They come, they rest, they confess, and they move on.

- Sanctuary was built five years ago when Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman realized that emerging superheroes would sometimes need help dealing with the worst parts of the job.

- To the outside world, Sanctuary appears to be a small, isolated ranch in rural Nebraska. But under the illusion, the ranch is, in reality a sophisticated, futuristic compound based on Kryptonian technology.

- Sanctuary is manned solely by robots and holograms. The only real people at Sanctuary are heroes.

- Sanctuary provides the therapy the heroes of the DC Universe need.

- The typical stay at Sanctuary ranges from a few days to a few weeks, and, on rare occasions, even longer.

- Sanctuary is a secret. The general public doesn’t know of its existence.

- To protect the privacy of the heroes, the Trinity discourages them from talking about Sanctuary, though it is an open secret that many heroes have visited the facility.

- Only three people know who goes to Sanctuary: Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman. No records of the visits are kept.

- Batman sees Sanctuary as a necessity. Wonder Woman sees it as a kindness. Superman sees it as good.

- And now, everyone who was at Sanctuary is dead.

- Learn more about Sanctuary in Heroes in Crisis #1!

In addition to the primary cover by Mann, Heroes In Crisis #1 will have a 1:50 variant by J.G. Jones, a 1:100 variant by Mark Brooks, a 1:200 variant by Francesco Mattina, as well as a blank cover variant. The 32-page first issue will retail for $3.99 and go on sale Sept. 26.
