Belated, I guess! Anyway, Robin Rises Part 2: Batman picks his ka-tet.

One Line Summary:

The Justice League forcefully forbid Batman from going to Apokolips, so he calls for new backup...

The Story:

Batman tries to get Version 2 of that sweet armor he used in Night of the Owls. The League (who helped him build it) locks the armor down, restrains him, and for the first time in a long time, Batman gives up.



Later that night, while Kalibak comes into possession of Robin's coffin, Bruce is comforted by Superman, and says some words of apology.



And then he goes right ahead and does this.



"Glad you're all here...Let's get to it."
____________________

On one hand, I like how Batman calmly accepts the Justice League's refusal. On the other hand, HIS FAMILY IS GOING TO DIE.

Still, I'm a fan of these core Bat-family reunions! I'd really want to see them take on Apokolips and win. And they'd be all "let's Boom Tube back to Alfred, all battle-damaged and unmasked and whatnot, carrying Robin's coffin."

And then Alfred will say, "Would you care for some dinner?" and then they'd say "Yes, please, Alfred." And then they'd eat some dinner and I've said too much.

But yeah, BAT-FAMILY!

Okay, why can't he just have the armour again? To ther extent that the entire JLA determines to stop him? (I never saw him in it in Night of the Owls... does it have nasty side effects or something?)

And seriously? Someone who has known Bruce for longer than five minutes fell for that "I understand the error of my ways and won't undertake that foolishly, suicidally risky action."

Superman is NOT that naive.

They've been on the JLA for the past five years, that should have given him SOME clue/ "Gosh, Batman gave up and went home" should move the JLA warning system to DefCon 1 automatically.

And in effect, all that their actions achieved was that, instead of Batman going to Apokalips with the armour, he's going to Apokalips without the armour.

I think it's less the armor, more the "Goddamit, Bruce, you're not gearing up and going to Apokolips alone."


Is there some reason why it's bad for everyone else if Batman goes to Apokolips? Like, Darkseid will retaliate against Earth or something?

Because if they're just trying to stop him because it's suicidally dangerous for him...well, he's Batman. And they're superheroes. It seems awfully silly to try to physically prevent him from doing this particular suicidally dangerous thing, as opposed to the suicidally dangerous things they all do every Tuesday.

Isn't sticking to the shadows and I-Am-The-Night-ing sort of their thing, though?

I have to keep avoiding posting that same thing with every time we see Batman with his team.

Oh, for the love of...

Edit: Wait, are you telling me that I just jacked up the bandwidth to Scans Daily by not enunciating?
