    Default Batman by Tynion

    What do you guys think of the new run so far.

    Not liking the overuse of the joker.

    I dig it, it's simple, competently composed, with some fun ideas being introduced. I love the use of Lucius Fox thus far, him and his gadgets are lowkey highkey my favorite aspect of the book. iunno about "overuse of the Joker" he hasn't really done anything yet but I'm looking forward to the upcoming conflict between him and Batman and I'm intrigued to see what Punchline will be like.

    Its very Tynion, and sadly has bored me very quickly.

    What I like
    -Art
    -Lucius and Gadgets

    Not a fan of
    -Trouble in catwoman and Batman’s relationship...again. Honestly it’s tiring at this point when we just had what 50 issues of a 75 issue run all about their relationship, and before that they had yet again in the new 52 a complicated relationship that was on and off. Honestly after the past decade I’m over it.

    Kind of meh about
    -Joker War, interesting that he knows everyone’s identities but I feel like we’ve seen this before with Endgame and I wanna know more first. Could be cool but we just don’t know yet.
    -Punchline, she’s not even really showed up yet so I can’t say I care.

    To name the most prominent
    -Batplane that can morph into a climbing robot
    -Batdrones
    -a device that turns any car into a batmobile, only appearance wise though.

    I posted a couple panels of the gadgets on the Fox Family appreciation thread but I'll list them off:

    Nightcrawler - a vehicle that can crawl and climb up vertical surfaces, and can transform into an aerial vehicle

    shadowcasters - tiny marble-like devices that the Nightcrawler can shoot out that project the silhouette of Batman to spook enemies

    Batspawn - batdrones, pretty straightforward

    The Batshot - lowkey ol'dude described it right, the seat of the Nightcrawler can recline and shoot out into a streamlined bobsled like vehicle to continue to pursue enemies in smaller vehicles on the streets below. it's dope as fuck not gonna lie

    The Echo - a small device that can work in tandem with the Wayne tech components of a car to bypass it's speed limit and holographically make the car look like a batmobile

    Lucius also has a secret automated set up under the Wayne Enterprises facility that can construct new gadgets and tools for Bruce

    I like it, but I'm a tad worried that it seems really strongly a mashup of Hush, Endgame, Batman and Robin Eternal, Death of the Family, and The Dark Knight Rises. Loving the art.

    Some cool stuff. I think the holograms are a bit much/too sci-fi, but otherwise neat. Thanks for the info!

    I absolutely loved the latest issue. The tension is beginning to build with both the Joker and Designers plans.

    I'm thinking that through the Joker War arc we will probably see Harley become more heroic perhaps becoming some sort of unofficial ally to Bruce. It will probably be controversial to some but I'm not against it. Way I see it Harley is a victim and Batman should always be about giving people second chances.

    Whats everyones predictions of where Tynion's story is going to go. I reckon in Batman 95/96 we see Bruce reach the lowest point. Before things beginning to turn around in 97/98 with the Army Catwoman is gathering - im assuming it will be the rallying of the Batfamily or atleast the members who appeared in Pennyworth RIP.

    It is a nice break from having Bruce on the floor crying because his daddy don't love him enough!

    It's been a fun, breath of fresh air after 85 issues of moping Batman.

    On the Joker, I think I'm okay with it in the one sense that in all of his side-runs and getting to play in the Gotham Sandbox, Tynion has only ever gotten to play with the Joker to support whatever ridiculous thing Scott Snyder is doing with the Joker. He had to play bass for Face-Off Joker ... Eric Border ... Doctor Who/Highlander Joker ... I'm Cured But Only For Five Seconds Joker! ... and more recently "Playing with the Legion of Doom ... Killing the Legion of Doom ... Not Answering Lex's Calls ... Joker" who has been my actual favorite.

    In all the Batman Eternals and big "Family and Enemies" Detective Gotham Knights runs, he hasn't gotten his hands on Joker really. So I'm pleased to see him get his hands on Joker and for his Joker to be ... kind of back to basics. A morbidly unfunny funny man crook with shades of the various Filmic depictions baked into his DNA. Joker War is also the first Joker story being told in the wake of the Joaquin Phoenix flick so there might be some interesting shades of that, too.
