Batman vs. Predator III part 2






Sorry it took awhile, I got busy. Eight images given this was a thirty two page comic. Honestly re-reading this now, I have to admit it's a lot better than I remember it. It is more superior than the sequel which art I wasn't much a fan of. This though it so captured the characters well and had the Predators going after more than just Batman.

I could only imagine one going after Cassandra Cain would be like. Anyway when we last left this series, Batman in a attack helicopter cornered one Predator, but didn't know there was a second ready to pounce on him. Well try as Bats does, he loses the copter.




So round one goes to the Preds, though Bruce escapes. Tim meanwhile tracks Mr. Freeze.





With Freeze bagged, Bats interrogates him on how Victor was spared the slaughter of his lackeys in #1, Freeze after some "convincing" tells him it was his body tempt. Tim is then begrudgingly given the rest of the night off, even though he wants to continue to work the case. Annoyed at being left in the cold, Tim leaves though not before we see the two Predators watching the pair. Uh oh...

Meanwhile, some time passes and we watch how prep-time is had:



Bruce dons a new coolant suit and lays a trap for the Predators. His trap lures one:




The fight goes good save for one thing. Where the heck is the other Predator?




Uh oh...

#4 continues with Bruce fighting the one Predator:





Bruce uses this time to get on the horn with Alfred to warn Tim:




Tim puts the pedal to the metal and returns to the Batcave. However that's just what the alien wanted:



Tim and Alfred continue their back and forth dance with the Predator. Though try as they might, the thing just keeps on a coming.




Bruce then hands the younger Predator a trophy necklace the elder Pred wore signaling the defeat of it by Batman's hand. Oh and how did Batman beat it? He used Mr. Freeze's freeze gun on it. Wish I could have posted that, but the Tim/Alfred stuff was better.






Batman had one more final encounter with the Predators in Superman and Batman vs. Aliens vs. Predators though I never bought that. So I can't tell you whether it was good or not. However, this honestly with time has aged well and is pretty good.

I wonder and kinda hope now that given the latest Predator offering that maybe down the road yet another crossover between these two can happen. There's still some fun to be had to see how Two-Face, Joker, Cass, Damian, Dick, or Stephanie could handle a Pred. Besides this crossover happened in I think 1997.

I can't remember who the artist is here, but he draws a terribly pretty Tim/Robin, and as I've said before I love the idea of the Predator taking his kid on a hunting trip, and targetting Robin as the kids first kill.

I agree! Tim is quite the hottie in this.

I'm extremely partial to his Bruce as well. *g* And I like this art in general, it's very clear, anatomically correct, with a good sense of movement and expressive faces. What more could one ask for?

Yes, he and Bruce are handsome as they should be!
