This issue is worse than the last one IMO. I was enjoying this until about 2/3 in and then everything with miles ruins the book for me. It made no sense to me. You have a chance to kill hitler you kill him and that ruined the book for me. The fight scene between widow and punished was great.

This was so bad. Widow got killed like an animal. Punisher working for HYDRA, unreadable fighting scenes (more particularly Frank vs. Nat) Captain America would not let Spidey beat him just like that, seeing Cap's shield break is not shocking anymore, Nadia says "The entire time she has been trying to prevent you from becoming a killer" even though she recreated the Red Room (and the Champions did more

The fight scene between widow and punisher was great I found it easy to follow just go left to right. It did take me a minute to realize the order. But miles not killing him was stupid. That ruined the book for me. I mean if you have the chance to kill butler you kill him.

The last bit between Diana and Steve Trevor saved this issue, otherwise I thought it was a little random. First you're out in the middle of the desert fighting with your team. Then it cuts to Etta and some foreshadowing. Then she asks to revert Minerva back to her normal self. Then she meets with Bats and Supes about her lasso. Gets it back via magic and caps it all off, shagging Steve. I mean I g more

Classic tom king writing and this is probably my favourite batman issue of his run. This does a great job of picking up after the button story and tie into what happened in the button. It completely makes sense given what has been happening during this batman run and the button.
