The aftermath of bringing back the body in the bat-suit outfit.IGN has the preview. One page behind the cut





The solicit.


    Part 3 of "Blackest Knight" guest-starring Batwoman, Knight and Squire!

    Only months into his new role as Batman, Dick Grayson faces perhaps the biggest threat of his life. In hopes of attaining his heart's desire, has Dick instead unleashed a terror the likes of which the world has never seen?

    Meanwhile, back in Gotham City, Alfred and a recuperating Robin are at the mercy of someone both fearsome and familiar…



his heart's desire? More running around in your underwear with Bruce?!

And unless who ever just got resurrected can fly like Superman, that must be Hush. But I may be wrong....

Who is the old school dark knight and his squire? I've never seen them before and now they're best buds of mainstream bad-clan?

They're Knight and Squire, from the 'Club of Heroes' or as it's more commonly known the "Batmen of all Nations".

The first Knight started as sidekick to Shining Knight, then spun off to become a Batman ripoff with his son, the Squire. The father was killed by their arch villain, so this Knight is the son, who has his own Squire.

Pretty much, they're Batman and Robin, but British. Last seen they helped out against Grodd/were in the Ultramarine Corps in JLA Classified. They don't show up much but that's because they're presumed to be fighting crime in England.

They were part of that Network thing in the Battle for the Cowl arc, weren't they? I vaguely recall Tim flirting with Squire.

Tim and Beryl bonded a bit in the Club of Heroes arc, when they... oh hell, trying to explain the bizarre set up would be way more difficult than just finding the scans...

The Father-Knight was more killed due to lack of confidence from the Black Glove ruining his career. Springheel Jack merely struck the killing blow.

They also appeared after the JLA Classified in Morrison's Batman run, including the story that reintroduced the Club of Heroes proper as well as during RIP.

I don't think it's ever clearly mentioned where they're based. I mean, Morrison's Scottish, so he knows the regionalism issues.

A couple of issues back on this he introduced two supervillains, Old King Coal and the Pearly King, who are locked into a North versus South crime family war. I may heart him forever if those guys actually manage to stick.

Oh, really? Old King Coal and the Pearly King sound like they have some real potential to me. I'm going to have to see about getting that issue. I definitely want them to stick if they are as awesome as they sound.

One of the many Bat-Clones created in Final Crisis by Mokkari, hence the lack of eyes when Superman picked it up in the penultimate issue. Once they'd clawed their own eyes out in horror at Batman's despair-filled existence, Darkseid decided to keep one because he could use it later.

I'm hoping that the 'Seid turns out to be the big bad behind even the Black Glove itself, it'd make a whole lotta sense.

That clever SOB. He's been carefully weaving this all this time.

Wait, then...again, that corpse gets around, because as we know it's been also mutilated in BLACKEST NIGHT. Are we using Brave & Bold continuity rules again then?

Presumably when the Black Racer got him, 'Seid gave up all his property to either death or anyone on Earth who could clean up after him. Or perhaps, as has also been theorised, he has control of the Black Glove AND Black Hand in tandem.

In fact, for that matter, why is there not a BL Darkseid? Because he's behind the entire business, or his lack of remains?

Um, wow. I mean, damn. I'm surprised this isn't getting more press, because for what seemed like such a character with great potential, to have her go out like that (and by those particular means)...crap.

Not getting a lot press because nobody believes it. DC just solicited the first two Batwoman arcs in a hardcover edition for May and Rucka/JHW III are getting a solo Batwoman title later this year. Which takes away any suspense about this so called "death" - especially since they're right next to a Lazarus Pit. But what can you do - it's Morrison, DC lets him do what he wants.

I am liking this particular arc less and less. So now Dick puts not one but TWO people into the Laz Pit? And it's A-OK to do so?

And just... Welp, Batwoman's dead, let's toss her in the Laz Pit, no big whoop!

...........WTF. Morrison, I try to defend you....

Well, for the record, that's not really all that uncommon. A fair number of reasonably well-known heroes, including Wonder Woman, have taken a dip in the Pit and have come out of it with no ill side-effects except a brief period of 'RAWRR I AM CAH-RAZY!' The objections people have to its use are moral, not practical - it really works quite well.

Dick'll be selling tickets to the Lazarus Pit next: You want to die and come back via that Laz Pit? Gutsy! I'm on board!

Here's the thing, though. Isn't the pit supposed to cure your injuries? Why does she have to die?

Wonder Woman has taken a dip in the Pit as a last-ditch cure for a fatal wound, and after a brief period of 'AAAH DON'T COME NEAR ME, I'M CRAZY AND HATE YOU ALL', she doesn't seem to have been harmed too much by it.

Possibly Wonder Woman is a special case, given she was made of clay and magicked into flesh by the gods. But then again, it's the DCU...

From: [personal profile] psychopathicus_rex
Possibly. I'm just saying that the Laz Pit is not ALWAYS a one-way trip to Bad Newsville - people have used it as a miracle cure more than once.

I read "Laz Pit" as "Lazy Pit", and given how it's being used as a plot device, that's just about right.

So when did they change it so that Lazarus Pits could be used more than once? That's always been a pretty big rule with them.

I figured Kate was just faking so the coal-types would think they'd won.

"So when did they change it so that Lazarus Pits could be used more than once?"

It's not the first time--Rucka did it first in Death in the Maidens, where Nyssa created such a pit and that's how she manipulated Talia to be her slave. As for this, I believe it's been said somewhere that this Pit is something slightly different that Morrison established in the Shining Knight mini of his Seven Soldiers series.

I just don't like this.

I don't believe they're about to kill or permanently injure Batwoman. That, combined with Lazarus Pit contradictions and Dick's judgment calls leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

May I just say that I dislike the fact that the Knight now has a cloak. I mean, I know he's always been a Batman knockoff, but until now he didn't really LOOK like one - now, with those weird ear-like protrusions on his helmet and the bloody cloak flapping around, he does. What happened - did Didio say 'this Knight guy, he's too original-looking. Make him more of a knockoff'?

And here I was hoping that Batwoman's plan somehow involved stopping Batcorpse or the Lazarus Pit or, you know. Actually, anything else going on in the rest of the story. Silly me.

In hopes of attaining his heart's desire,

But on the plus side, even the solicits now ship Bruce/Dick. Woot!
