    DC's overall vision is embarrassing and juvenile, especially for Batman. They've been carried by the strength of adaptations and legacy. The DCU app's original content is horrible - Titans and Harley...

    Knowing DC, her likeliest fate is a cameo appearance in the next Crisis to die and add to the body count.

    Possible. Maybe parallel versions of these events happened in the Flashpoint Universe, as well. But he also knows the secret behind War of Jokes and Riddles, that Joker/Riddler knew Bruce better than...

    One thing I thought of this morning, though... it doesn't make sense that Thomas would know about the events prior to "The Button" since he was still in the Flashpoint timeline... but in his speech...

    Great issue.

    I loved the reveal behind Thomas's motivations, and loved the Memento-esque approach to the backwards narrative (appropriate enough since City Of Bane has more than a few parallels...

    Interestingly, this is the same arc as the Batman of the Nolan-verse.

    He begins ;) fairly well-adjusted. He's using an eccentric and unorthodox method, but he's sane and in control of his...

    I don't think it was an accident. David Goyer didn't have a screenwriting credit, but he was involved in breaking the story, and he definitely knows his comic book history.

    I am interested in the idea of playing up the socioeconomic differences between Bruce and Dick.

    This, to me, is a largely unexplored wing of the character that calls back to the first origin of...

    King's run feels like it must be the most decompressed to ever appear in "Batman." But really, each arc works well enough on its own, even if you went in knowing nothing. "Everyone Loves Ivy" is a...

    The Penthouse has had perhaps the most staying power of any bronze age addition.

    I mean, THE DARK KNIGHT is probably the most watched Batman story in any media, and features a very bronze age...

    It makes sense to me that he'd have some kind of spy background, but maybe in a more grounded way — like Tom King himself, worked for the CIA before writing superhero comics.

    He takes a job as...

    I think that's right. And I do think he will have a moment where he shows his growth to Thomas — perhaps illustrating that Thomas's view of Batman is it's a curse, whereas for Bruce, Batman is just...

    Catwoman doing it could make sense (and be yet another parallel to Dark Knight Rises for this run)... and would make sense as the one who "stops" Batman from killing (like Joker in War of Jokes &...

    I wonder if Bruce will make an exception to his rule and kill Thomas.

    It would be interesting to see a take that goes back to the earlier depictions, where neither Thomas nor Martha come from ancestral wealth... you have to change a number of justifications but I think...

    It's quite the family tree.

    Martha Kane

    He could use a belt too, I think, like the Young Justice cartoon... does he have any pockets? Seems like a downgrade from the Robin suit in terms of pockets without a belt.

    I haven't seen the new...

    I would love for Tynion to present a pretty well thought-out explanation for the cover Bruce and Selina have concocted.

    Maybe Catwoman will somehow fake going back to the underworld as a spy for...

    I don't think they did? They're on the DCU app and Comixology.

    I think that review is so ridiculously over the top.

    I definitely appreciate this perspective but, like... WHAT are Thomas's motivations, though? They don't seem to add up, to me. Like, I get that he doesn't want Bruce to be Batman, but why and to what...

    If you don't mind reading digitally, the DCU app has basically every Batman comic ever published pre-Rebirth. There's a lot of good Brubaker, Rucka, Moench, Dixon stories in this period — in Batman...
