They came with the same matter-of-fact effectiveness as the one he'd made at the end of #16.

They were well-aimed blows at Batman, struck with the precision befitting their striker.

They were elegant ones to see- the ease of their effect was the only thing a bit jarring about them.

One of them was a particularly neat illustration of that.



A woman, looking at the past, was joined by a man.



He attacked her.



(On the one hand, it's a bit simplistic a takedown- just a flinch and one shot?

On the other hand, it is a definitely competent one, combining falconry and a steady gun hand.

Plus, the pacing and the layout are just nice.

If you're wondering where Zombie and Trogg are, they show up shortly after this with Bird here, taking on Gordon and Duke.)

So Bane wants to keep the Psycho Pirate, not as a weapon as Amanda "The Wall" Waller used him, but as a method of psychological treatment for his own significant and acknowledged issues?

Given that Psychopirate seems to be perfect for helping people deal with childhood trauma, why couldn't Batman have brought Gotham Girl to Santa Prisca and said, "Bane, you don't need the pirate 24/7, give him a couple hours with GG for 5 days and I'll owe you big time."

Why? Did they explain this?

As far as I understand it Batman plans on destroying Psycho Pirates mask after he fixes GG, so he probably didn't trust Bane to have the Pirate and decided to take him away.

And at this point I don't even think it's about The Pirate for Bane, I think he's just super pissed at Bats now

As much as I hate to see a highly skilled fighter such as Selena get taken down so easily, I'd have to agree that the sudden appearance of a giant bird of prey would be enough to throw anyone off their game

Unless they were someone used to the likes of the Penguin and his trained birds. It should take a hell of a lot more than that to surprise an A-list Gotham villain.

This is true, but then again, we've seen A-listers get taken down by much less. I don't entirely like it, but at the same time, I don't think it diminishes her character

This still isn't as egregious as Dick being taken down by Bane. (especially if he had Jason & Damien with him, not clear on that).

DC writers seem to love under selling his skills lately.

Yeah, now that I admit is ridiculous

I'm assuming this is just a fakeout and he's just going to use Catwoman as a pawn to get at Batman, in which case it seems kind of a dumb move to shoot her right between the shoulder blades, that tends to kill people.

I don't know, maybe he was using non-lethal rounds.

Well, the scans poster for the Dick, Jason, Tim hanging said that Batman had to break into the Fortress of Solitude and place them in advanced Kryptionian healing pods to save their lives, but that they'd be out of the fight for a week.

So, if the Falcon's intent was the same as the previous attack, he was actually trying to get Selina as close as possible to death, so that Batman would have to move heaven and earth to just keep her alive.

This is pretty much Bane's previous strategy with a twist.
The last time he broke everyone out of Arkham and Blackgate. Batman spent over a month recapturing them and once he caught the last of them, Bane steamrolled the exhausted Batman.

This time he's putting the Bat Family and Catwoman in critical condition so Batman will exhaust himself keeping them from dying. There has to be a good reason for Batman not calling the Justice League, because after the near-death of 4 of his closest allies, he's obviously lost control of the situation.

But I'm thinking those mentions of "This is how the Batman died," we saw back in early 2016 are about to happen. And Bane's going to do more than break his back this time around (and then we'll probably get a DCU reboot less than a year later). Gotham Girl does narrate that this story is how she killed Batman, perhaps she meant 'how he died saving my life?'

1) I hope that Catwoman gets this guy back, but good.

2) So what's Bane's beef with Batman? I thought they had a respect/appreciation of sorts for one-another, like brothers or something?

Yeah....perhaps she can get her hands on a cougar or some other large jungle cat, so he can watch his bird get eaten, and then she can shoot him in the ass...the circle will be complete.

Bane wants Psycho Pirate to deal with his Venom addiction. Bruce doesn't want him to have him (due to potential to weaponize him, one assumes). Bane is having none of that.
