Cable used to be one of my favorite characters, now he's so boring to read. Even Noto's art is not good as it used to be.

Reeling from the events of X OF SWORDS, Cable turns back to the matter of missing mutant babies... a matter he knows a thing or two about.

It is ridiculous this Batman who just for putting on his hood without training only with resources that I imagine he stole from somewhere snaps his fingers and is a fighter and detective at the height of Bruce Wayne.
The only thing that raises this story is the part of Cass and Step, the art is very good but the things they take for granted spoil, there is a desperate need to make this Batman more

This series tries to juggle way too many characters alot of the time which makes the storyline drag out way longer than necessary. Those are really my only complaints of the series and this issue.

Oh man!! I just can't stand how they are just so lazily creating new characters. "He did what the original Batman could not and truly saved Gotham". I ranted about this in another post but are we actually going to see how Tim Fox had the proper training to actually be Batman? He was a full grown adult when he was introduced. Where did he learn everything from? Hes like Rey in the sequels lol. >But I was planning on skipping Justice League once I heard Bendis was the new writer anyway so I guess I don't care about the far future of Justice League or the near future of it either. more

I hope you'll behappy when DC changes every character in the comics so they can make movies for people who don't read or give 2 shits about comics. And then comic fans stop buying comics from the big 2 companies. Comic sales say it all. Indie titles are already selling at record numbers and the big 2 are declining. I'm not alone. That is all. You can respond but I'm not going argue because u disagree with my view. Go fight an SJW battle on someone else's post. Begone troll

Toonstrack - Jan 16, 2021

Ok, I'm not worried, this is nothing new with DC. Imagine an Alan Scott fan saying this same stuff back in '59 when Hal debuted. Or a Jay Garrick fan in 56. DC is still here. Hopefully they will continue to be, and to evolve the stories and characters as well. But we can just disagree. Have a good one.

No They didn't. The current editorial staff did.

Psycamorean - Jan 13, 2021

Okay, you can meta read everything. Cap became the de-facto leader after they changed the roster to remove all the established heroes and replace them with characters like Hawkeye and Quicksilver. That was editorial who decided that. There's little difference between the meta-text and the text here.

Overall it was pretty good. Not sure I'm a huge fan of them dying every issue so easily. Like, how the hell did they ever survive this long without being able to come back from the dead. And one thing that is really bothering me is how Wolverine gets blown in half. He heals AND is basically indestructible. He is not deadpool. I can't believe no one else has mentioned it. Is it adamentium lite? Ben more

Note that Logan and Quire's injuries exactly match where the previous page showed them going through the gate. It wasn't the commando's explosives that chopped them up, it was the gate shutting on them. I'm comfortable with "mysterious techno-organic teleportation malfunction" being strong enough to bisect Wolverine.

The beginning of the Next Batman is like the beginnings of Batman without the death of his parents mixed a bit with the problems of the mutants in X-Men, that is, it is an exciting but trite beginning, which is good because it fulfills the function of entertain, however personally there is nothing that tells me to stay and buy me, much less when it is a jumble of stories that follow or summarize, more

As expected this will see some backlash by people who have a "particular" issue about who's wearing the cowl this time around. The less said about that the better.

As an actual Batman comic though this has a lot to offer. The initial story is setup/a quick and easy crime story but its good one. The scenario is a good one and I think we are going to see how about how things came to be more

The Batman story was legitimately good. I want to see where John Ridley goes with that. Undeniably the best thing I've read from Future State so far. The Outsiders back up was pretty good. It flows well. The Arkham Knights back up is really, really boring. This was almost a solidly good collection of stories, if not for the last one.

So the Magistrate is essentially the fascist Batman from Alex Ross' Kingdom Come? Sure...

The Outsiders was ok, but a bit confusing.

I have zero interest in Tim as Batman. He's already started off on the wrong foot by jumping the queue of more deserving characters to the Bat mantle.

The Fox family dynamic isn't bad, but this has been done with the Gordons but better since I actually care about them.

Art sucked. The backup stories w/Arkham Knight leading Batman's rogues gallery was cool. Outsiders didn't in more

It exists. The art looked mostly nice, the stories somewhat intriguing. I don't get why this wasn't a natural plot development in the monthly Batman or Detective Comics series. As a set of miniseries in an elseworld limited high priced book? It's pointless. I would love to read a real Tim Fox as Batman story, set where it really has an impact on DC continuity. Or an evolution of the Outsiders stor more
