    So re-reading Vengeance of Bane and Knightfall and I noticed/remembered that

    --When Bane escapes Pena Duro, he's naked, having been presumed dead and thrown to the sharks. He is still naked when he captures the warden and frees Zombie, Bird and Trogg.
    --Knightfall kicks off with Bane using weapons he acquired from a military installation to free the Arkham inmates. "I Am Gotham" also kicks off with weapons stolen from a military site being used.

    So what you're saying is...Tom King DOES read comics.

    You wouldn't believe the meme response to Tom King (the reason I created this thread last year) - "Tom King doesn't read comics" "Tom King can't write dialogue" "Tom King is the worst writer of Batman ever".

    What struck me the most was the parallel structure in IAS with what I had just read with the final confrontation between Bruce and Thomas. The key players are Wesker, Catwoman and Batman in each case. You have Batman taking the brunt of the fight and getting beat, practically. Batman and Bane/Thomas philosophizing about what it means to be Batman (a heavily distracting concept, it appears!). Then Catwoman as the "ace in the hole" in both stories and the same exact choreographed moment with Catwoman surprise-attacking Bane/Thomas.
    Thomas thought he was so clever and fell for the same trick than Bane did, I loved that haha. My big problem with Bruce willingly receiving a beat down in I Am Suicide (that I could even take as him also being pretty exhausted after fighting through so many soldiers, but I think in I Am Bane "Martha" mentions that he let himself be beaten, playing with the theme of making his parents proud by having a "good" death) is that after Catwoman deals with Bane, Batman stands up like he hasn't received a single hit. He's just there seeing naked Bane. I would have liked that Janín drew him in such a way that we see a consequence of Bane's punches.
    "The Batman is Gotham City. I will watch him. Study him. And when I know him and why he does not kill, I will know this city. And then Gotham will be MINE!"-BANE

    "We're monsters, buddy. Plain and simple. I don't dress it up with fancy names like mutant or post-human; men were born crueler than Apes and we were born crueler than men. It's just the natural order of things"-ULTIMATE SABRETOOTH
