Judging by how hard they are pushing Bat/Cat I don't think DC would do any further mind-wipes of Selina (or undoing a major feature of one of their premiere storylines - Loeb/Lee's Hush - in a low-profile title like Sirens) but the very fact that they are letting Zatanna consider this again is mind-boggling. I've said before I don't think any "hero" came out of Identity Crisis more damaged in credibility than Zatanna and despite having her own title DC is doing nothing to change that opinion.

And for those counting this is the Nth version of Talia that we've seen (once again trying to protect her "Beloved"), a character different than both Morrison's and Winick's or even Tomasi's (from Nightwing) or Rucka's (from Death and the Maidens). Is she purposely being written as bi-polar or something or is DC in such desperate need of a villainous Asiatic Dragon Lady stereotype (which they've tried with Nyssa and Cass) that they just slot in Talia even if makes no sense.

To be fair to Zatanna, we don't see her reaction to this. The comic ends with Talia saying they have to mind wipe Selina.

I have no doubts that the mindwipe won't push through for exactly the reason you state, but I hate how everyone is written here:

Selina is a pathetic mess (which we know she isn't in Morrison's Inc)
Ivy and Zatanna are just stupidly catty to each other
Talia is going to be the villain (yet again!) based on future solicits

I just don't see how this book is going to please the fans of any of these characters.

On the plus side though, Harley's still fairly in character. That's not much of a plus, I admit, but you take what you can get, right?

No. Either get a writer who can write all the ladies in character or drop the Catwoman from this book. A lot of Catwoman fans I know would rather see her gone from this one altogether.
