Batman #19 (Evolved? Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Thu Apr 11, 2013 1:30 pm

It’s kind of weird after almost 2 years of Batman comics focusing on big events like The Court Of Owls or Batman Inc or Death Of The Family to read a Batman story that’s just… a Batman story. Yes, this story is dealing somewhat with the fallout of Damian Wayne’s death, but the main thrust is a nice little story about Clayface. The opening sequence plays into the ‘WTF Certified’ stuff, as Commissioner Gordon faces off with a bank robber who turns out to be… Bruce Wayne! We then flash back a week and in a roundabout way find out that it’s Clayface pretending to be Bruce. One thing I found interesting was that before he passes out, Gordon sees that Clayface-Bruce is Batman. Will this lead to Gordon knowing the truth about Batman’s identity? Or will it be swept under the rug? Also, Gordon refers to ‘the Zero Year’ in dialogue, which was strange, it’s the kind of thing that makes sense for a story arc name, but doesn’t seem right actually being spoken by people.

The back-up story once again comes from James Tynion IV and Alex Maleev (what the hell are DC doing having Maleev draw Batman and not putting his name on the cover? He’s a big name, don’t be shy about it! Just one small example of DC doing stuff ass-backwards), and was the first part of a team-up between Batman and Superman, which is something that’s always fun, they are the real World’s Finest, not that Earth-2 nonsense!

Wait, so Gordon's awesome "what am I, an idiot? What makes you so sure that I didn't figure it out YEARS ago, I just CAN'T know it as Commisioner so nudge nudge wink wink say no more" moment has been retconned out? Stupid NUDC, that was one of the best Gordon moments of the last quarter century!

Didn't Gordon already find out the Bruce/ Batman connection prior to New 52 some years ago?

Too bad it's too late for me. Too many crossovers made me lose interest.

That IS in fact what I just said, yes. Thank you for the English-to-English translation help. :P

Yep and then there was my all time favorite moment during No Man's Land when Batman tries takes off the cowl but Gordon won't turn around to see. That and when Bab's tells Gordon that she was Batgirl and he basically says that he knows. All that awesomeness is gone now. :smt013
