    Batman ain’t relied on a support tech crew since the mid 90’s

    This has probably been mentioned already, but isn't the name of T'Challa's grandfather "Azzari" and not "Azurri"?

    Nope...

    Mr Terrific is literally billed as the second smartest man on Earth. Batman isn't even in the top ten of smartest characters in DC.

    He does in Detective Comics right now. The films and tv series also give that role to Alfred and/or Lucuis Fox.

    Those outfits are basically a less skimpy version of the Uniforms the Dora Milaje wore early on in the Hudlin run.

    Admittedly this is fron Wiki as I'm not a DC guy myself. But it states Mr. Terrific is the third smartest man on earth, citing Infinate Crisis 5, pg 1 as the source.

    When twitter asked Geoffs who was 1 and 2, he said Lex and Bruce (presumably in that order though he didn't clarify).

    Edit: Found a scan of him billing himself as third smartet. Admittedly not a DC guy so maybe he went up in ranking since then.

    Mr Terrific is officially the 3rd smartest man in the DCU. DC hasn't made a statement, but fans generally assume that Lex Luthor is number one and Batman is number two.

    If you ask Mr. Terrific on Justice League Action, he'd say those kinds of list are never accurate (probably because he wrote them) .

    Honestly I never understood how characters know exactly where they rank in this sort of thing. But it's sort of become a way for writers hype up a character by getting them in the top 10 I guess.

    I think they're also very similar to the battle armor that Nakia and Okoye had in Priest's run. The bald with head tattoos is definitely from Hudlin's run though.

    If I'm not mistaken Comic vine merged with GameFaqs so that might have something to do with it.
    Somewhere, a nerd cries. I feel nothing.
