This is how King has Batman characters win. They get beat on and beat on, and once the attackers get all tuckered out from pummeling the victim, the victim then turns around, all bloody and beaten, and hits them once and they drop like a sack of potatoes.

Apparently, in King's world, there's not such thing as broken noses, concussions, internal bleeding , damaged backs, knees and hands. more

I think that the next thing Tom King should tackle is the X-Men. To hell with Hickman, Tom King should write X-Men. His ability to tell a "story" without actually telling one is truly Uncanny.

The worst part of the book is that it got published. It feels rushed, the twist here is just incomprehensibly stupid and based on tons and tons of pure luck. But the worst part of it is that it clashes with the previous 20 or so issues.

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.

The problem was leaving him on this book. DC should have pulled him from the book 50 issues ago and let someone else pick up all the dangling plot lines. It's not like King is doing well with tying any of it together.

myconius - Oct 16, 2019

i'd go as far to say that he should have never been put on as high profile a book as Batman. he just never bother to do any real research into the characters nor did he set up some sort of plan what to to with this run. it's felt like he's been just making this SH%$ up as he goes, and digging himself a deeper and deeper hole. he's still never bother to answer many of the questions that were brought up early on. with the amount of filler in this run, it's obvious he has no answers. he's a hack.

I've always loved JR Jr and his art. Especially when he was on ASM. But now it just doesn't seem right. It seems like he is not focusing as much in this, as he did in ASM. A New Ways to Die, ASM #600 all had better art than this. Maybe his style just doesn't fit Batman as well as it does on Spidey.

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!

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.
