arbre_rieur: (Hey Kids! Comics!)
[personal profile] arbre_rieur posting in [community profile] scans_daily


A little over three pages from the latest issue...

This issue's largely set-up, as Bruce Wayne builds up the ranks of the franchise.





I doubt the "low maintenance" line was a dig at DiDio, but who wants to bet the internet smart alecs are going to interpret it is as such?





Some people think Wingman might be the original Wingman, back from the dead, but I don't think that's at all likely. Firstly, if it was him, there would be no need for the mystery game. Why obscure the character's face at all if he's exactly who he appears to be? Secondly, Morrison wrote the guy as petty, evil, and an all-around punk. He wasn't the sort suited for a redemption arc.

Also, David, the African Batman's look seems to be based on this guy...



...from the story "The Batman Nobody Knows," in BATMAN 250. [personal profile] icon_uk did a post on the issue here, from which I took the above pic.


I love this series.

From: [personal profile] drakyndra
Well, of course Batman's in Melbourne. The city was founded by a guy named Batman.

...The fact the local Batman Inc. representative appears to be an aboriginal guy has some weird connotations in that light.

When he found the current site of central Melbourne he noted in his diary, "This will be the place for a village."[1][2] and declared the land "Batmania".[3][4]

Oh my god the alternate history that could have been.

I have never really understood the concept of the Outsiders, because like, that group right there could not look any less like a stealth team.

Also the tattooing seems a little much!

You'd think so, but consider their powers; A telepath/telekinetic vampire, a samurai warrior with stealth training, a metamorph with a gaseous form, energy manipulator with an invisibility option and... a big red burning guy to... I dunno, create distractions?

David, the Batman of Africa, does seem somewhat inspired by the "Batwings" character Ronnie saw Batman as in Batman 250, especially when you look at the original issue. The red and yellow version here is from the reprint, in the original the dark red was black and the yellow was blue, making him ever more closely resemble David's look.

Additionally, David's exoskeleton is the same as the flight suit that debuted in Batman: The Return that Bruce and Damian wore when they met Traktir and Spidra. Details like those are part of what has been enjoyable about Morrison's Batman run.

That's my guess too, but I don't know how I'd feel about that if it turns out to be true.

I love Jason as a mix of punk and woobie, and "Morrison wrote the guy as petty, evil, and an all-around punk" doesn't exactly inspire much confidence >_>

I would NOT be surprised if Bruce was actually saving Alfred as his ultimate weapon against Dr. Dedalus & Leviathan. Alfred did quite well while giving the marching orders for the Outsiders....

All of this is an elaborate show to have Dr. Dadelus looking at HIM, while Alfred does the real work from behind.

There is a reason why Alfred Pennyworth IS Batman's Batman.

Three things. One, is it just me, or does Burnham in this issue actually make Bruce seem...kind of sinister?

Two, when did Black Lightning become a ginormous giant? I mean, look at him. His fist is the size of the heads nearby. What the hell's that?

Third, adding in number two, what about this group of people spells "stealth" to you? Two of them give off bright flashy light. One is an ex-supermodel. And then there's Rex. Eh?

Black Lightning's nowhere in these pages as far as I can see. Do you mean the large reddish fellow with the Outsiders? His name is Freight Train and he's a large fellow and can increase his size, though slowly.

I don't think it's a specific reference, just a suggestion that the Outsiders don't need someone very talented or capable to handle them, just throw Didio on the book and it'll be fine.

maybe Wingman is Booster Gold. Gotham is where Booster's from, he'd call Bats Bruce and he needs to keep his apparent competance level hidden, and he can allow Batman Inc. to have wacky time travel adventures.
