My previously mentioned Batman binge was partly motivated by Arkham Knight, and partly because on the spur of the moment, I added Batman #24 to my comixology basket one Wednesday morning. Because CBR is essentially unusable (and here are 15 reasons why CBR is completely unusable) I've managed to move well out of the loop on comics news, and it's pretty great, so I missed the big final page reveal being spoiled by the comics press and was able to actually be surprised at the end.

Anyway, from #24 (Every epilogue is a prelude) I went back and consumed Tom King's run on Batman, split into I am Gotham, Night of the Monster Men, I am Suicide, Rooftops, I am Bane and then the Flashpoint and Swamp Thing short stories.

And as a thread running through all of them was one character who ran a line through the whole story.

In Batman #6 Claire is dealing with the death of her brother and her torment at the face of the Psycho Pirate. She's on patrol, fighting baddies and narrating to her dead brother. Then she tangles with...

The answer is of course, "Because he's good at it"
Batman #9
Batman journeys to Arkham to put together a Suicide Squad who will help him take Psycho Pirate from Bane in Santa Prisca and bring him back to Gotham so he can undo his damage on Gotham Girl. On their trip through the hospital, they pass...

Batman #14
Catwoman and Batman go on a spree, beating up all of Batman's D-listers, including...

Batman #23
Investigating the murder of Swamp Thing's father, all evidence points to one man...

Batman #26

Kite Man is not part of either team during the War of Jokes and Riddles.

Catman: You said that when we went at it like rabbits!

I'm disappointed Gail made such a big deal about his sexuality but literally did nothing aside from one small panel
