Comics Alliance has put up what I think is a pretty accurate (and funny) 60 second overview of Blackest Night. My favorite is Wonder Woman.

And for legality, Wonder Woman and her "crush" in the Hiketeia

char: wonder woman/diana of themyscira, char: batman/bruce wayne, title: blackest night

I was just listing girlfriends, if we list boyfriends then we're up to at least eight people :)

The killings were completely righteous and justified, Greek tragedy however completely compelled Batman to be even more of a ginourmous douche than usual.

Which is a great understanding of *your* mindset, but for someone who was so deeply traumatised by the loss of two people, you have to sit back and understand that for him, one life -- any life -- is one too many. There's no chance of redemption when you're dead.

And that is an awfully slippery slope for someone who could be the most prolific serial killer in the world if he really, really put his mind to it.

Who says a foreign mind needs to use her senses, or that it would be affected by a device attached to her brain rather than its own? We have no idea how Starro control works, and something like Max's control, which already relies on making you see whatever he wants you to see, or Deadman's, where he just does his own thing with your body, automatically succeeds.

Plus, as [personal profile] valtyr notes, the entire thing depends on her not holding the lasso at the time she gets hit with it, which is actually less reliable than putting your whole plan on Two-Face's coin coming up heads.

Uh-uh. If you list everyone for Dick, starting with Kory *and* Babs *and* Roy...

I also think Dick totally should have been a Star Sapphire, LOL. ;p

Ok, *of the girls*, Dick has two real contenders.

And yea, he'd be a good Sapphire :)

And yet, he still has no problems working with murderers such as Jason Todd or Damien, right?

Damien hasn't killed anybody as Robin (nor is the current Batman Bruce Wayne). And since when has Batman worked with a killing Jason Todd?

Then when Batman comes back, I'm sure that he'll see to it that the current Robin pays for his previous crimes, right?

And wasn't it heavily implied that Jason Todd pushed a rapist off a building during his stint as Robin?

for no real reason

Uh, no? The Oracle predicts that all who fight the dragon will die.

And, indeed, all who fight the dragon die.

Diana ensured that all the others did not fight the dragon and did not die.

The discussion between Diana and Bruce centres around their conflicting beliefs - Diana believes the Oracle at Delphae is never wrong in its predictions, Bruce believes it's so much mumbo-jumbo. Similar to the talk in Hiketeia, where Bruce doesn't really believe that Diana's beliefs and traditions are relevant.

Exactly. Diana's the same as Superman in that sense. Batman has a plan, sure, but absolutely EVERYTHING has to go right if he's going to win. One mistake, and Clark/Diana takes him out.

That's something that doesn't get enough attention from Batfans.

Imo, something goes wrong, he finds another way to win, because he's BATMAN.

And thank you for proving my point so perfectly, dear Batfan. :)

Just try to keep in mind, one of the fundamental aspects of Batman is 'the victory is in the preparation.' And when he's dealing with beings that could reduce him into a thin red smear without any appreciable effort, he needs a fuckton of preparation... Which he's taken care of, because he's Batman.

But when he's outclassed by this much power, most of Batman's fight is wearing the other side down enough that he can handle them himself- and the margin for error is pretty well nonexistent. It's a testament to the awesomeness of Batman how rarely that happens, but even he can be surprised (hence the Joker's continued threat)- and mechanical failures are a fact of life.

Any part of the plan goes wrong, and instead of dealing with a battered messed-up hero that's ready for the knockout, he's dealing with a pissed-off hero with plenty of fight left... who happens to be almost infinitely faster than he is and could blow his heart out through his spine with a well-placed breath.

But again, that practically never happens... because he's BATMAN.
