"My little boy..."

Not bad, I enjoyed this one.

Filler? Yes. Should have been released much earlier to reveal naggingly missing plot details? Most definitely.

But we finally learn how Thomas Wayne got to the Prime universe. It fits, involves a speedster (there is a coloring error in the issue), makes sense and fills a plot point that really should have been filled more

I know that they work now and I'm glad that you brought up the suspensions of disbelief. The flashpoint timeline wasn't erased because it wasn't. And people don't recognize Clark Kent as Superman with glasses because they don't. I know that we won't see eye to eye on the matter but it's always nice to have a civil conversation with someone on the internet. That stuff is rare. Especially now when people are triggered by everything. Literally everything.

King fans after this issue: The book was kind of rushed and sloppy in execution; not a great penultimate issue either. It also has some plot-holes and raises more questions than before.

Also King fans after this issue: 10/10 rating

I don't care anymore. This book is an embarrassment to the comic industry. I feel bad for anyone who enjoys this book.

I don't care if Hickman is a visionary architect or some kind of worldbuilding mastermind who conceives the most brilliant plots and ideas. That is irrelevant when the text is poorly written and the pacing of the story has problems. Moreover, the humour is lousy, stupid... and not funny at all. As in previous issues, the art is not good. Thus, a book with almost NO AESTHETICAL QUALITY.

I liked that we finally got some answers to flashpoint Batman, but his motivation is unconvincing. He clearly knows this is not the same universe Batman as flashpoint so he can't assume it will all turn out the same. Also the art was not good, especially with an egregious error in coloring flash's suit that caused a ton of confusion.

Reverse flashbacks might sound very artistic and deep. It actually makes it a bit more jarring, especially since I don't remember Flashpoint so well. So if someone wants to enjoy this issue more, you need to read Thomas bits backwards.

I don't know what linear story telling did to King as a child, but it must be terrible. Because King just refuses to tell a story in linear order.

Apparently Thomas Wayne's whole motivation is that he fell in love with the Selina Kyle of his world and he wants Bruce to, in some sort of weird psycho-sexual transference thing, seal the deal.

Detective Chimp - Dec 6, 2019

The story of #84 is crystal clear. Thomas gets laid with flashpoint Selina giving him a new hope and sense for his life after the death of his son and his jokerized wife (killed by himself). He even stop killing the rogues but the Selina dies fighting crime on his side and the darkness backs to the hearth of Thomas and when he realize Bruce is repeating his own story he decides to step and "save" his boy. That's the story and I think is easy to understand. Now when comes to like or dislike this issue #84 is up to you. I liked it but I understand if others don't. I think King's Run overall is terrible but this issue was very interesting for me.
