Many golden age stories didn't age very well. Readers' expectations have evolved and changed - we now expect more character development for our heroes, narrative complexity and deeper themes than just punching irreeemably bad guys to save the day. Superman Smashes the Klan proves a good story and political commentary are timeless, and is as relevant as when it was aired on the radio in the 40's. E more

There were two moments of shock I experienced while reading this comic. First was at the very beginning, when I realized this comic won't tell just a dark elseworld story founded on events from Knightfall. It apparently was intended to be something more - something used in a bigger narrative, with a purpose in a bigger event. I was extremely happy, especially since Snyder is the mastermind behind more

no worries. my typing skills are bollocks, and i'm using a keyboard. - Now that you mention it, that always did strike me as weird that Batman said "Clark?" even though NewFiftyTwoperman had just died. - he really is so inconsistent with his writing. he can't even decide if he wants Batman to be a blubbering depressed crybaby, or an omniscient OP badass. King still never even gave a proper explanation as to Gotham Girl & Bro's powers, or Bane's motivation for going after Batman the way he is.

This is the THIRD issue of this type in this run. It was lazy every single time. The way you properly set up a twist like that is that you foreshadow it. You leave connections and clues. You don't just think it up, not bake it into the background of the story, and then at the end go "Aha! I'm so smart!" I don't understand how anyone could read this and think it's good.

At this point, I cannot say Tom King is a talented writer. I never read Sheriff of Babylon, and I only read through issue 6 of Vision (I had no background with the character). But Omega Men was the only thing I've read of his that had a coherent story. Batman has been all over the place, but has trended to garbage. And Mister Miracle was garbage disguised as philosophy. There is no plot, no resolution, no continuity, no morality, no purpose. Just B.S. philosophy, a suicide, and an open ending.

"No plan until you realize you have to give DC something so you make up some crap that makes it seem like it was all part of the plan" seems like the routine King went with this.

DC Stuff - Oct 16, 2019

remember, this is how Heroes in Crisis ended as well...the "Puddlers" were a clue at first and ended up being something Wally once heard Barry say and instead of clues and a solid look at the Sanctuary and it's AI we got time travel nonsense and Lagoon Boy no longer dying in a totally different way than we saw. Not to mention there was a Green Lantern dead which never was addressed. The only thing that Tom King plans are ways to fool people using social media!

I don't think that bendis is a bad/incompetent writer. But, I think it's safe to say, he the under the weather these days. As some his work is quite good. The Example being ultimate Spiderman run from the 2000's. I think he works best with street level heroes. If, I were working at DC, I would suggest the editor team to give him a comic run regarding street-level heroes like The Question or green arrow in an out-of-continuity story. And, let him be creative or crazy on it.

Nihilist - Oct 3, 2019

I don't find him a bad/incompetent writer either. Maybe an unfitting for certain series he's chosen to write, and most definitely one that should be kept in control by the editorial, which doesn't happen. Not sure about Question, since he's a Z-list character. Maybe he'd be a good pick, but Bendis seems to be in this tough spot where he has name recognition and respect, so DC can't say "no" to him, but at the same time writes shit these days. Kinda like Miller, Azzarello or King.
