berani00: The movie version of Spawn (Spawn)

Well... This is interesting

So we have the Court of Owls (Or is it Parliament?) back, more talk about this weird metal that binds a lot of DC's artifacts together now called Batmanium or something if it's not the only kind, this anti-Justice League with knight Batman, Flash Batman, Cyborg Batman, Doomsday Batman, that massive thing looming over all of them and a leather demon Batman WITH THREE VAMPIRE ROBINS!? I-I can't even! This Dark Multiverse must be some screwed up place to be in!

Oh, those are vampire Robins? I thought they were Joker-ized, a la "JJ" from Batman Beyond.

...baby Darkseid...?

During Geoff Johns' last story on Justice League, Darkseid was killed and then thanks to his daughter Grail, he was reborn in the baby of Superwoman of Earth-3.

well, yeah, but why are they calling Bruce that?

[personal profile] scorntx 2017-09-13 05:25 pm (UTC)(link)
They're not. The Owl is talking to the baby Darkseid he's holding, which he took from Batman.

It's hard for me to believe that Snyder and Capullo have been planning this from day one, but that just makes it more impressive that they found a way to tie together most of their entire run, not to mention the bits and pieces from other stories.

Bra-fucking-vo

I was thinking exactly the same thing. I actually appreciate that Snyder is trying to tidy the Court of Owls thing up as it was getting a bit out of hand.

This f**king bonkers.... I LOVE it!

It really is compelling in a bugnuts crazy yet coherent sort of way. And (le gasp) it's not about heroes fighting other heroes.

I am so on board with this that it is ridicilous.

[personal profile] locuatico 2017-09-13 02:22 pm (UTC)(link)
Okay. The Court of Owls being the goddamn Illuminaties is too much for me.
I found them more interesting as a bunch of rich families trying to keep control over Gotham and that (through comicbok science) had an army of zombies to do so. I could even accept that they FOUND this metal and used it but did not know WHAT it was.
This is a generic "oh, everything is going EXACTLY as plan. EVERYTHING was as planned". that's not endearing. it doesn't make them feel more powerful.

Well, if it's any comfort, I hardly suspect that they got the reward they hoped for when they let Barbatos through.

"Hear me, Bendy! Arise from the darkness! Arise and claim my offering! [...] No! My lord! Stay back! I am your prophet! I am your- AAAHHH!!"

Leather Daddy Batman and his Robins are... a sight, to be sure.

So the Court of Owls starts out as a Gotham based elitist super-nasty Hellfire Club which is more or less taken out.

Then the Talon spinoff series has them as a worldwide thing, which is more or less taken down.

Then the recent Nightwing series has them as the Parliament of Owls, back in full charge of a global organisation (and wearing black masks instead of white)

Now they're back in Gotham... and I STILL don't care!

Persistent little buggers if nothing else.

Oh, and the original Robin costume (albeit with black instead of yellow capes) are back in continuity? Kinda?

I still can't tell if "what if the entire Justice League was both evil and Batman" is a fund dumb idea or just a dumb one

[personal profile] jmacq1 2017-09-13 03:57 pm (UTC)(link)
Fun. Definitely fun. But the devil will be in the details (how the story goes from here forward).

Series still leans more towards more dumb than fun for me

I'm in the same boat. The last scene with all the so-edgy-I-just-cut-myself Batmen didn't impress me, just made my eyes roll. I'm sure it's to some people's taste, but it's really not to mine.

According to this, Mouth of Sauron/Leather Batman with three chained Robins is The Batman Who Laughs, and is a blend of Batman and Joker.

(Which makes a nice reference to Victor Hugo’s The Man Who Laughs, an 1869 novel adapted into a popular film in 1928 starring Conrad Veidt, whose performance as Gwynplaine is cited by students of comic book history as a key influence on the character design of The Joker.)

Evil!Flash-Batman is The Red Death.

Evil!Cyborg-Batman is The Murder Machine.

Don't know who the rest are.
