BWAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAAAA!!!!! X'D

this is a joke, right?
this was supposed to be a joke?

why is DC trying to force Tom King on the Batman series for 100 issues?
the man didn’t even have 50 good issues in him, let alone 100.
DC really needs to find someone who actually understands Batman,
and knows how to tell a good Batman story.

Yeah, being suspicious doesn’t really have anything to do with being fearful. Hadn’t really paid much attention to that but you’re right. Should definitely have been superstitious.

myconius - Oct 20, 2018

i mean it is kind of a minor thing, but that tiny attention to detail i notice quite a bit. especially since i've read so many of these classic stories in reprints over and over as a kid.

The KGBeast lives! The Russian super-assassin is back-but under whose orders? Does he have a specific mission, or is this simply some leftover Cold War mayhem? Nyet, comrade-it has to do with Bruce Wayne's recent court case involving Mr. Freeze. Something is rotten in Gotham, and you can still smell it, even if it's on ice!

if Victor had gone right to the police
this would never have happened.

Bruce isn’t presenting a valid argument.
even IF Freeze happens to be innocent, he was still in violation of his parole.
whatever BS reasons Freeze had for suiting up and leaving his house arrest, if he was truly afraid that Batman was coming for him then he should have called the police. how did he more

True. I guess my self-righteousness got the best of me.

Still, at least people are talking about it. Whether it sucks or not, that’s what DC wants. Everyone has differing opinions and we take stances because we care about the character. No one is forced to read the reviews or the comments so just let people talk man. It literally does no harm to anyone.
