Batwing #6 (Humanity's Laws Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sun Feb 05, 2012 9:05 am

This book is improving with every issue, and it really has become one of the sleeper hits of the New 52 for me. This issue continued it’s exploration of Batwing’s origins, showing his start in the Tinasha police force and his struggles with it’s corruption. We also see his first attempt at crime-fighting, and his first meeting with Batman. But it wasn’t all flashbacks, we also got a pretty extensive fight between Batwing and Massacre which included some pretty big hints as the the villain’s identity. Batwing seems convinced it’s General Keita, but I still reckon it’s his brother Isaac. It was announced this week that Marcus To would be taking over the artistic reigns of this book, and while I’m sure he’ll do a good job, I’ll certainly miss Ben Oliver, his depiction of Batwing’s armour is particularly good. It is pretty convenient that the remaining members of The Kingdom are in Gotham City, but hey.

Another good issue, but still a head scratcher - Batwing had to wear a weaponless outfit so he could make the 6 hour flight to where Massacre was. He engages Massacre all by himself and shortly after, Massacre escapes. But Batwing was with Batman 6 hours earlier at the Citadel. Batman - the guy with a plane and access to teleporters (if they're being used in the Nu52). Hell, Bat's could have called Supes or Flash or anyone to zip them both to Giza - why send an injured Batwing off alone on a 6 hour flight while Batman stays behind for at least the 12 hours it took Batwing to get to Giza and back? I know Judd wanted to make this about Batwing, but at the cost of making Batman look utterly useless?

And I do have to say I was shocked when Wing first thought Massacre was his old general. It's been pretty obvious it's his brother I thought.

Still, for a book I really thought was going to be dropped after the first issue, this has been a really good series.
