Bats beats up everyone in his path to escape Arkham. This is a callback to when Bane beat everyone up to get into Arkham.

n chapter one of "The Fall and the Fallen," Batman escapes his Knightmares only to wind up in a whole other bad dream. He's locked in Arkham Asylum with his worst enemies, and the only way to get out is to fight them all. It's a gladiatorial game of madness and mayhem, all for the amusement of Bane!

I think this is a tough issue to enjoy on its own, but as part of the entire Batman Incorporated run it’s pretty important and meaningful. Morrison just knows how to write dialogue that sticks in your head and if you read the rest of the New 52 run, things come to a head in a satisfying way in this issue. An important issue to own in any case, just for the short period of time it had influence.

"Why did the chicken cross the road?"
To get to a terrible comic writer's house.

Heroes in Crisis is just plain bad. It may feature some very solid artwork, but the story is so painfully boring, disjointed, pseudo-intellectually "deep" and in many cases out of character, it basically could be summarized with all the jokes, mockery and criticisms of New-52 era of DC Comics.

Good find, it's definitely worth reading and very insightful, especially if you don't know anyone who may have suffered from PTSD, thus may not know how to help someone with PTSD.
