    As for the two one-off stories we get in Batman: Urban Legends #6, the Black Canary one is huge. It helps set the table for an upcoming DC Comics title, which I can't wait for. The Zealot story seems to be further setting up for a WildC.A.T.s series, and one would think Matthew Rosenberg will be the one to run that series at this point. Read Full Review

    The first arc is over, and if you can't tell, I'm burnt out on this title. It started off with such promise, yet never realized its potential. Even the high points never rise above merely good, despite the great creative teams behind them. Hopefully future issues are retooled to make this a more palatable anthology series, with more one-and-done stories that aren't there solely to set up a future title. Read Full Review

    Not bad, removing a lot of things that don't fit, like Bruce's happiness is killing the Joker, I think Batman's happiness would actually include his living parents. It was strange to see Bruce's allergy to happiness to the point where he wanted to murder Cheer. That was strange. But I definitely think this entire book is completely out of canon. Jason and Tyler's relationship is the best, I totally love them, good ending here.
    The most disappointing thing about this book was seeing a bi Tim without some kind of support, he magically turned bi, no wonder that in the DC universe they warned, what a mediocre idea.
    What's Next? Bruce and Dick are having an affair?
    If I rate this entire book I would give it maybe 5.5 to 6, no more more

    So as much as I wanted to like this, it ended on such a sour note. The Jason story had a lot of potential and while some things in it worked, especially when it comes to the relation between Jason and Bruce, some really, really didn't. The two biggest faults being that this whole comic revolved around Red Hood and Batman, 5 issues of 6 it was just the two of them assisted by Oracle from her chair. I really didn't think including the Bat-family was necessary at this point. And the second one is even worse. Jason dropping his guns isn't necessary at all and it was probably made because of Zdarsky and DC's political views regarding guns. The biggest differences between Jason and Batman were that he killed and used guns. It's the whole reason f more

    I would usually rate this higher but guess what? They changed tim drake sexuality. I am all fine for diversity but at least introduce new characters that happen to be LGBT. It happened to Alan Scott, it happened to star lord and iceman, and it happened to Tim drake. I have no doubt this will be divisive right now.

    On one hand, I'm glad that there's at least a solid reason why Tim Drake's sexuality is changed because of the effects of Infinite Frontier. But on the other hand, I think it will be far more rewarding to actually introduce a new LGBTQ character and make them cool and interesting. I want more characters from Steven universe for example, they're interesting characters that happen to be LGBTQ.

    I loved! I feel sorry for Bruce, even though Jason has so much pain in his heart that he was able to fight the drug and it does not weigh him down as much as Bruce, who fell into a momentary depression and it is logical, euphoric drugs have that effect.
    Return Red Hood's series written by Zdarsky!!!! I think Zdarsky did quite well. Jason surpassed himself as a detective, surpassing Batman since he knew how to gather all the points, he was not a lone wolf, this time he acted as a leader moving the family. Cheer's face seeing that Hood could fight his drug was great.

    That was sad they both want the same thing, a whole family, I think that in Bruce's hallucination he looked at his much younger children including Kate, he wishes he had chosen his son instead of the Joker, in his fantasy he wanted to be the one to kill the Joker and not Jason. Maybe before everything went wrong, and they want that part so much that Bruce tells him that life is too short for them to continue like this, separated, however he seems to be determined that the relationship is a disappointment, we separate, is what we make. auch!
    But the ending is happy, he returns the bat that he once ripped from him and Jason has a great capacity to forgive even if he does not seem like it, Maybe old, maybe.

    Quoi ? Bruce ne peut pas câliner Jason après son retour ? même s’il respecte ses règles. S’il vous plaît ! Une réconciliation très médiocre oubliant le Batarang dans la gorge et les derniers coups inutiles. Dommage Chip, et ils le prennent comme un canon pour le ramener à son ancien costume. Je n’ai pas aimé du tout.
    Un Tim bisexuel, c’est une autre merde progressiste.

    Great phrase a mature Jason, also as the development as a detective and strategist. I just hope they are not going to turn him into a Dick now Jason lays down his weapons, Jason needs to remain the indomitable, this does not mean that he goes and murders, but we all need an antihero and Jason is perfect and balanced to do it.

    Great moments are presented in this installment, the way they are affected by the drug and how to overcome it, is so different and at the same time so similar. I think the difference is more

    I think I will be one of the few who is disappointed in this ending, from the beginning Jason has been mishandled by Zdarky's writing this writer does not know him and it is clearly visible and the worst thing Rosenberg is condoning of this to return the old suit and NO JASON DOESN'T HAVE TO HANG THE BAT AGAIN JUST BECAUSE IT IS BRUCE'S GIFT. Nor stop being the antihero and give up his arms just for murdering a scum, a guy who drugs his own son and almost murders his wife is to applaud? NO.

    Bruce is still a conceited idiot, I don't know why to put Nightwing in this comic and exclude Damian. It was not a good ending for me.

    The only strong story here is that of Red Hood, a good end, I would have liked more of this, that Bruce was honest and Jason lowered his barriers, but impossible to take the step for them.
    Jason was taken in this finale in a great way, he looks just amazing in the Batsuit without a cape, Hood not only took the story, he took the whole book, the only good thing if you want to buy this book.
    Blood for Blood totally insignificant.
    Sum of our parts, nefarious art does not make the comic good. I hate that they use an incredible character like Tim Drake in that way all to see their left politics.
    Only. Another simplistic story, the only nice thing was to see Barbara in her Batgirl outfit and not as Oracle.

    A good closing to the story of Hood, although it was not as expected, Bruce is still a bit of an idiot and it is sad how much Bruce and Jason are alike, apparently they both have a big problem with happiness. Although I understand it more from Jason, since I believe that he has not been able to know true happiness since he was born, an abusive father, an addicted mother, living on the streets is not easy, the betrayal of who he love as a father, etc. etc. . it's a lot to unpack on this complex character.

    I appreciate that it was Tim who applied their silly left tendency and not Jason, look that DC has a certain hatred for this character, at least they left the alpha male of the batkids alone.

    Regarding the closing of the story between Batman and Red Hood, there is a logic, Jason is not giving up killing when will be necessary, but he's giving up on weapons, although this is a bit silly here the rubber bullets are less harmful than the stupid crowbar or a sword, Buuut Jason bears the blame for snatching a bad father from Tyler, even if you ask me the boy is much better off without that horrible man.

    Bruce is an emotionally disabled person, so what he does is give a gift and an invitation, something logical for those w more

Sea o no sea se siente que falto algo al final, lo que me lleva a la pregunta de la compañera que hace. Por que no puede Bruce ser afectivo con Jason? dios el niño ha sufrido mucho, tiene una gran necesidad de la familia y Bruce es cruel al respecto sobre todo con Jay.

    So, the final part of the Cheer story by Chip Zdarsky is very, very well done. I really liked the characterization here. I really liked the progression as well. I think this is how you bring Jason down from his Under the Red Hood level of antagonism without making it stupid, like what Scott Lobdell did for what seemed like 35 years. And I'm sure no one took this complaint seriously, but no, Jason putting down his guns is not a political statement by Zdarsky or DC. It's called symbolism, and it's symbolizing his lessening antagonism towards Bruce. I swear, there is plenty of politics to find in fiction, but idiots always hone on to the paranoid non-existent kind because they can't actually process what they're seeing/reading/listening to.

    As always Bruce doesn't have the guts to apologize for the shit he's put Jason through. It was weird see Bruce fantasized about killing the Joker and why the hell they draw Jason shorter, damn he's only two inches shorter (6.0) than Bruce (6.2) and Dick is only 5.10.
    I was hoping that Zdarky would really see the value of doing something new, it surprises me sometimes Williamson did better in that field with Bruce calling Jason the son or Lobdell making Bruce hug Jason. But okay, I'll give it to him just because it seems like he has recognized a bit of Jason's abilities where he fell too short. It was a good story with some things that did not fit but interesting.

    Canary amused me reading it, but where did they get Tim Drake? more

    The story was nice but still ended like almost every batman/ Red-hood story ends, them going separate ways after solving the problems mentioned in the specific comic. the family element was nice and was happy the story didn't diverge towards the family when they arrived and still focused on Jason and bruce.

    Tim: 1
    The problem isn't that he is turned Bisexual, the problem is how they handled it. Firstly he still cannot get over the Robin identity even though it would be better for him to move on so better stories can be written about him. Secondly the whole story and this issue didn't actually do anything for Tim. even the bisexual part was sprinkled upon on the previous issues and just comes here out o more

    Red Hood was decent during all the installments, apparently Chip wanted to make his own Hood's version , not bad but not excellent, I think Chip is a bit spent in terms of creativity and I say it because his DD is not what used to be. However, Chip gave us some great drama between the father and son bond, but they both have a long way to go before actually repairing their relationship, they have nevertheless made the first step.
    Matt's story wasn't very good, not like Grifter's, which was fun to read, but not nearly as disastrous as Tim Drake's story of the Rose of Guadalupe(a ridiculous series of Argentina).

    I don't understand why they always put something to change, in the end their relationship is colder and more unfair for Jason, a sour sweet ending if you ask me. The dynamics Jay and Tyler is incredible, I would have liked more of this interaction, Red Hood and Blu Hood, it sounds incredible, I think Jason has that need to be a father despite his nefarious father figures, that speaks of a great construction, but he is still very young.

    Difficult to qualify this completely, Red Hood ended in a pleasant way, giving the handling of other weapons sounds great to me, I know that Proton will return to lethal weaponry and in a few years he will possibly be separated from the family again, because DC is little creative and often spinning their stories with the promise of something new.
    Tim's thing was really disgusting, I don't think I want to read more about this character, not because of the gay thing, if not the bad development, if they wanted to do this well they would take things early and not give us a boring and silly story.
    The other backup stories are very forgettable.

    The signature of the publisher's weakness is in this book. A pretext to take away Jason's weapons and erase the canon, although well done is what we have here, even though I can live with Jason without guns if they give him incredible weapons, a bit illogical because he kills himself with a sword, blades and even a bar, so why not use the All-Blades? on the other hand is the incipient conversion of Tim to bi in a rather boring story out of nowhere. It is not their temptation that Kon and Tim changed together, damn I have done the same after leaving the showers of the sports car and until now I am not bi. Having a friend that you consider a brother I don't know either. Bullshit.

    I would have liked a little more about the history of Hood, its closure felt a bit rushed, however it shows it with great growth at the beginning of the character, leaving aside that Jason is a strategist, however he made him a better detective than Batman in this series. Finally with this number I conclude the purchase of this series, what is coming is not of interest to me in the following numbers. I don't want to read more of a bisexual Tim out of nowhere or the other characters at such a high price.

    Pretty solid selection of stories. The Red Hood ending didn't quite work for me but I do think there's a lot of solid new story potential there. The Tim story was great for how short it was. Really solid art and the internal monologue felt totally appropriate for the character. This one was my favorite of the group.

    The Dinah story was probably my 2nd favorite. I've been a sucker for Hairsine's art since I read Divinity so that was a real highlight.

    I kind of like how the Red Hood storyline goes. The older New 52 Red Hood costume is a symbol of trust between Batman and Jason, even though I had my own hopes on where Jason could go; but then again DC wants to keep him as Red Hood for the Titans TV show and the Gotham Knights video game. As for those joy fantasies between Batman and Jason, it says a lot. Batman and Jason really just want to be done with the Joker. And while Batman should never go down actually ending that clown, he can't help but be sick of him. Hence why these fantasies exist, to show that Batman and Jason are more connected than they like to think. But it also raises questions about when some of Red Hood's other appearances take place, because there are times when he's more
