But after finishing the first issue, I realized that I had no enthusiasm for the book because I know already how this story is basically going to end. I gather that Under the Hood was exciting because readers at the time didn't know who was masquerading in Joker's old costume. That mystery propelled the story. There's nothing that interesting this time around.
Do I think Super punch is stupid? Yeah. But doesn't everyone?
I'm hoping for a real explanation. I know people hate on Winick, but he has never struck me as a slight writer, which makes me think that the references to them not knowing why he is back is a thrust of this story as much as it the journey down the dark path. Someone the other day explained the Super Boy Punch as a catalyst and dcu history will have to create its own reality to make things mesh up. We need to remember that Superboy Punch explains things to us, but not to them.
Plus I genuinely like character exploration and if that is all this series is, I would be cool with that. Noble Causes is one of my most favorite comics of the past ten years and at its best it was nothing but character exploration.
But I see what you are saying and I think you can see where I was coming from with what was written. Thanks for the clarification.
