    Default Why Did Killer Moth Sell His Soul To Become a Moth Monster?

    In Robin 23 to 24, Moth's motivation was given that he wanted to be taken more seriously. But think about the risk/reward tradeoff there:

    -He'll never have a normal sex life ever again
    -No chance of lying low
    -Whenever he's caught more security will focused on him at Arkham
    -I doubt that he can still eat human food
    -His hands are all fucked up now so he won't be able to normal human things like picking up a pencil
    -He probably smells terrible

    I dunno. Doesn't seem like the wisest thing to sell your soul for.

    I think the answer is simple: because its a poorly conceived and written story.

    It's simple. They wanted a moth monster to fight against.

    He wanted power and to be taken more seriously and was really vague on the rest of the details, so Nero filled them in for him.

    Please correct me, if I'm wrong but my guess is Superboy Prime punches reality.

    He didn't. He was killed by Prime during IC. Then a new Killer Moth, looking like the old one, randomly appeared. We never get a name for who's under that one.

    Then of course the universe rebooted and Drury came back to life and looking like his old self.
