I really hope Tom Taylor gets some money from NGOs after this blatant piece of propaganda on their behalf, I really do. You know, the people who are paid to put refugees in danger on "rescue boats". There's this scene where Taylor explains how "no one puts their children in danger unless it's more dangerous to stay behind." That, my friends, is a big and very fat LIE. Yes, there are people who are more

I mean, I know that people will not like that I say these things, as you can very well see. And I'm sure there are a lot of people who think this way but don't want to get in trouble for it so they stay silent. That's how the mob always wins, by applying enough pressure on people until they shut up and just go about their business because they don't want to put up with their crazy. I don't want to put up with their crazy either but I don't see a solution either in shutting up.

"Superman is gone"

I could end the review right here because that sentence above sums everything up perfectly.

The Man of Steel has left the Earth. The Man of Tomorrow is gone. In his place, we are left with an entitled brat who thinks he knows best and constantly looks for new ways to show he's the virtuous one.

Great. Awesome.

I don't understand why they chose this guy having Luke, TIM FOX has always been a hateful, envious and criminal guy. You only have to read the few appearances of him to know what kind of character he is. He hates Wayne because he feels ignored by his father, he always has dad problems, he once tried to put a bomb on Wayne's Enterprises. He was a gang member, he allied himself with corrupt people. This is a Batman of shit.

Bats20832 - Sep 16, 2021

Yes, as Barelyalive points out Tim Fox was also part of the Terrible Trio gang as the "Vulture." Tim Fox and his gang of criminals blew up a ship to sink threatened the lives of scores (saved by Batman and Robin),and then the gang tried to blow up a Wayne Enterprises event with a bomb Batman describes the gang as "punks."

This was a mostly good issue and alternative to the events of Countdown to / Infinite Crisis. I like Ted Kord and while some things in the book I felt were a bit hasty or unrealistic, it works within the confines of the page count and it’s mostly believable for a one-shot.

Future's End has its moments but overall the payoff was more of a slap in the face than anything else. I felt like I was duped. First they kill off Terry McGinnis, who just might be as cool or cooler than Dick Grayson as Nightwing, for no apparent reason and then proceeds to end with how we are in a post-apocalyptic world where the heroes lose and Eye has won.

I never bought the"dont be stupid Bruce isn't leaving Batman is a cash cow for DC" bleating either. You're right the scraps are no longer enough. Main characters have to be used to trojan horse the agenda because no one reads scraps. Un Tim Foxs case it's his "selfless" war on privilege. Riveting reading I'm sure.
