Round #2. IGN has the preview. Things escalate and I will let the comic speak it's volumes. Two behind the cut.

So this is where Dr. Hurt has been up to, and that eliminates one person from under the ruby lenses. Have to admit the build up is nice as the players start coming together.

I don't care what the naysayers have to whine about; this has been one badass run on Batman.

I would agree, but I really loathe how Morrison has butchered Talia al Ghul.

I was never fond of Talia and she did kind of annoyed me but I have to admit she did have some bad ass moments when she wasn't taking shit from her dad or Bruce.

Morrison just made her into this Bruce obsessed nutjob that I really hate.

True. It's hard to believe that for a long time most fans considered Talia on part with Selina as Bruce's "true love", considering that Morrison has made her Bat-sh!t crazy, raping Bruce to have his child (which did not happen in Son of the Demon) and with Bruce actively hating her now it seems. New readers to the Bat-books might not realize she wasn't ALWAYS like that.

It's got some characterization flaws here and there, but overall I enjoyed it too. :)

From: [personal profile] icon_uk
You know, I'm honestly not sure, but I'm pretty sure he must have been at some point in the Golden Age.... the odds are certainly in favour of it happening at some point, but then the odds are in favour of Robin having been put into almost ANY predicament in the Golden Age,

Just in case though, I may have found a new commission subject! :)

I recall False-Face gluing Batman and Robin to railway lines in the 60's TV series.

I just can't get excited about this. Partly because Hurt was a shell of a character who was treated as dangerous because he kept saying he was, rather than anything interesting inherent in him, and partly since it depends on idiotic things like a mansion which collapsed under an Earthquake, having a functional railway line that no one (including Alfred and Dick who have lived there for years) ever noticed.

Honestly, this? This is what is supposed to be THE ULTIMATE BATMAN VILLAIN? This guy's so corny and over-the-top, he needs a top hat and a mustache to twirl.

I just don't understand sometimes.

From: [personal profile] sistermagpie
And yet for the universe of this run, he's actually pretty ordinary. So yeah, doesn't at all seem like the ultimate Batman villain.

Particularly--and I was going to say this before I realized who I was talking to--compared to the Two Face scans posted earlier. He's just more connected to what the universe is about imo. Which is not to say everyone needs to be like that, but these guys all seem to come from the same mind.

Maybe it's cuz I'm catholic, but I can't help but feel I've seen this kind of scene many times before. Sinful/dangerous man whips himself in repentence, threatens clergy for forgiveness, in the end said clergy dies anyways and sinful/dangerous man walks away to do more sin. *yawns*

So very bored of that scenario.

You think that's predictable? Just wait till they hit you with the 'guy dresses up like a bat and fights crime with a little kid' scenario. Been pulling that one for years.

I'm sorry, Mr Priest, but if you walk outside into the middle of what looks like an epic gun battle, you've really only got yourself to blame when you get SHOT TO DEATH. Doofus.

I don't give a shit about Dr. Hurt or whatever and I have d"varying degrees of want" type of feelings about the story.

But I have to say Oberon Sexton is awesome.

Not sure I can agree there, he's just... like much of the characterisation in Morrison's Bat-run, a favourite who seems to be trying to hard to be memorable. The mask, the name, it's all distracting rather than intruiging.

Plus of course, he's a complete stranger who appears and then appears to instantly out-detective Dick's Batman, and given how few moments of actually impressive awesomeness Morrison has given Dick, he doesn't need competition in another field associated with the role in Batman.
