Batman: One Bad Day: Two-Face #1

Released: Sep 21, 2022

Two-Face has always been viewed as Batman's most tragic villain. If only Harvey Dent hadn't been scarred by acid, he could have continued his good work as D.A. in Gotham City and been Batman's greatest ally and friend...right? Or has Batman extended Harvey Dent too much grace in his multiple attempts at reform? He'll question himself as Harvey Dent...

I like seeing Thomas Wayne Batman, which is really the main reason I am picking this series up.
But the credibility of this plot is not in good shape.
I am rooting for this series, but the past 2 issues keep raising WTF flags, Geoff Johns.

Bats20832 - Sep 11, 2022

DC Fan of Sorts - regarding "At this stage, Johns isn’t actually writing it" - I have suspected that, and also expect there is goal to force Flashpoint:Beyond to fit with other storylines, DCEU goals, editorial vision, etc. Not sure of what that is or how much I really care either. If wasn't for Thomas Wayne tragic story, I wouldn't be giving any $$/time of my own on this.

Dc Fan of Sorts - Sep 12, 2022

I believe that the stuff in the “regular universe” is actually a divergent Doomsday Clock timeline that will be important after Dark Crisis

This issue took a turn for the worst. It starts with a very strange interview that's confrontational and nonsensical. The woman declares that she's the smartest woman in the world and why is the time bureau even a thing here? Woman-splaning the omniverse or whatever. It felt like a big lecture or training seminar. Not a fan of this whole scene. Then the Martha-Joker knows all about time travel and more

So if I wasn't fascinated by the tragic story of Thomas Wayne, I would be agreeing with you on your rating. Former geology assistant and history grad who became "Dr." Bonnie Baxter is the expert on time - at least on that stage. But Martha Wayne becoming a genius in time-travel (shrug). And Thomas would have (and ultimately did) rescued the child. Messed-up storyline now. Ugh.

Dc Fan of Sorts - Sep 10, 2022

The time bureau is here because this book is all about a dead timeline that 100% shouldn’t exist! Thomas isn’t just sure it’s going to reboot - he is going to make it reboot! And Bonnie Baxter is an expert and pretty damn smart.

I'm so glad this is going to be an ongoing (or at least a longer mini). I just want to spend forever reading about Ivy hooking up with beautiful women, killing people who deserve it, and struggling with the fact that in her heart she's not the misanthropic serial killer she thinks she wants to be. Writing, art, colors, all a joy. Give me fifty more issues.

Why is every writer embarrassed to write Steve Rogers? I know it's always been politically tinged, but can we just have a good versus evil story without the writers apologizing for everything bad that has happened in America? Maybe just start with something basic and get to the heavier things later

The first issue was great. For fans of Silver Age Superman, this Elseworlds story is like a miracle. It's an alternate history of DC's Earth-1 superheroes, and every page turn is as exciting as was Alan Moore's final Bronze Age Superman story. The Allreds' weird art is perfect for Silver Age Superman -- bold lines and colors. I hope the team does more Silver/Bronze Age Superman after this one ends more
