DC Comics Confirms Identity Of Peacekeeper-01

In the world of Future State, Peacekeeper 01 was the first of The Magistrate's sheriffs, running the anti-mask operations in downtown Gotham. He is also the one who thought he was responsible for killing Bruce Wayne. His identity was never revealed then, with some suggesting he was the missing-from-Future State, Damian Wayne of Ghost-Maker.

It's a brutal battle for the ages, but what secrets does Harley Quinn hold about the man beneath the armor, Sean Mahoney?"
