Awful fan fiction-level writing that only makes the characters look weak and/or awful!

Batman/Catwoman #8

By: Tom King, Liam Sharp
Released: Oct 20, 2021

Pulled apart and torn together! Setting new boundaries in their relationship leads to conflict at home and on the mean streets of Gotham for Batman and Catwoman. With opportunists like the Penguin waiting in the wings to strike, our hero becomes more vulnerable than ever. Meanwhile, Phantasm locates her target-The Joker!

Shes the one they put the most promotion behind as a replacement for Farley quinn. Shes not really caught on though. I think she has to work with the joker before she has a chance on her own.

The first page has me already disgusted at the division and wokeness that Cantwell continues to push in this comic. So Sam Wilson, one of Steve Rogers' best friends, if not a brother, says to Steve that he can't "validate" Steve because he PROBABLY is a descendant of slave owners. Again, let me it make clear: out of two people who have nothing but respect for each other and are as close as brother more

Okay, so can you please elaborate further on your problems with the first page? You're unhappy that Sam Wilson says people can't validate Steve Rogers because he might be a descendent of slave owners. Is that true?

Merlyn - Sep 22, 2021

I'm unhappy that Sam and Steve, two best friends, two people who have been through so much are put by Cantwell in a position where Sam is saying to Steve that he can't validate him because of what his ancestors may have done. Do you realize how poisonous of a world view that it? To blame one of your best friends for something one of his ancestors MAY have done hundreds of years ago? It's frivolous and frankly, it's pretty racist too.

Christopher Cantwell continues to mimic Tom King’s Batman run with Tony “miserable man behind the mask” Stark not doing much while Patsy plays the “Cat” role and does all the heavy lifting.

@DC Fan of sorts, I don't hate what he is doing at DC like a "1" (which means there is nothing worse), I also haven't enjoyed his DC work. I actually have enjoyed Checkmate (haven't read this week), but the last two issues of JL I haven't been able to get through. I will try to make myself quit buying that as of this week. It's too bad, while I know some people never liked Bendis, I did. Now, it's like it is a bad writer trying to mimic Bendis.
