If I’m being honest, the score of 1 isn’t deserved for this issue, but it reflects my feelings on the entire series. Such a pointless and worthless series. I kept going even after I could see it was not good because I had gotten that far, but wow. When King is on, it’s good. When he seems like he is too proud of himself, it is this.

The healthy approach to a comic book would be to have your expectations for it completely neutral, and your mind open. Obviously we're incapable of that, since we're only humans - driven by our prejudices, preferences and emotions. I was skeptical about this entire event, and I still am, but I'm willing to give it a fair chance instead of preemprively calling it a gimmicky publicy stunt. Even if i more

It seems that Ed Brisson has done a bit more research to the Club of Heroes/Batman Incorporated characters than Joshua Williamson had. But Batman putting Ghost Maker in charge of Batman Inc just feels wrong. It's extremely contrived, and heavy-handed writing. I'm not sure who at DC felt this was a good idea? but it just doesn't work.

John Timms art is great. Some great action drawn.

Here is the problem with the Batman, Inc. storyline: Ghost-Maker is a killer. Batman Issue #109, page 10 (June 2021)- quoting from Ghost-Maker himself: "I was eight years old when a psychologist put a name to what make me different. I am a Psychopath. I do not feel empathy or fear."

There is a multitude of evidence, from the GPS location of everyone in that building, and where most of them came from (Trump's rally), to the messages sent by Republican members of congress who helped plan it. You really should appreciate that second half on misinformation, because you have a front row seat to it. I've read Nick Spencer's Cap run, and I find it funny that you say this is too on the nose, but that run wasn't.

Amazing Psycamorean - Jan 11, 2022

That run literally had these cyborg cops called Americops that openly beat people to death in the streets without any provocation. This is like what you said about Jim Rhodes. Your point doesn't actually work if the person you're saying it to is aware of the context. My point about the number of bat-titles wasn't that it's good there are so many, but that it makes the whining about a black Batman even more absurd when you can't get away from Bruce Wayne if you tried.
