His death at the hands of Bane is the only event that could possibly compare to that fateful night in Crime Alley, and it leaves Bruce at a similar crossroads. If Alfred was the glue that held the Bat-Family together, how will Batman deal wi...

It's frustrating because, most of Snyder's Justice League is technically well written and enjoyable, but it's so frustrating to have another non-end. I swear, since the Metal, it's been non-stop, "You won't believe what's coming next!" every seven months. Like, can we get a proper ending please? Is that so hard Snyder?! So I will see what Snyder and Capullo bring next, but if it doesn't end after more

Superheroes for Hire - Jan 30, 2020

After the onslaught of new story elements, I finally quit when I heard of Hell Arisen and the Infected storylines. He couldn't even conclude Dark Nights Metal. Last thing I ever want to see is Apex Lex vs Batman Who Laughs vs Perpetua.
