Batman does indeed have the letter from his father that Barry gave to him back in Flashpoint #5. Btw does anybody else hear "Paint It, Black" in the back of their mind while looking at Bruce flashback?

The League's unauthorised biographer David Graves faced with his mortality goes on the deep end and targets villains who may know weaknesses the Justice League have. When he can’t find out enough information from villains he targets Colonel Steve Trevor.

Okay, repeated pages from the other posts, but..


"I don't HAVE a favourite colour." Jesus Christ, how emo is that?


If that's their attempt to explain why there's zero colour in Batman's new costume.. Ultimate fail. I mean, I can't even bring myself to give a shit that Batman potentially knows this world is completely fucked up.

And yet he let his sidekick pick out the brightest, most cheerful, colours in the spectrum for HIS costume! :)

He's eight and his parents were shot to death in front of him. I think he gets a pass for being a little emo.

If he's STILL doing that as an adult, then yeah he's definitely still got issues. But he's a guy who dresses up in a batsuit to punch criminals at night -- of course he's got issues.

He's eight and his parents were shot dead. Fine, sure. I've felt the same when relatives of mine have died.

But I never felt the need to paint a room a blank colour and declared "I HAVE NO FAVOURITE COLOUR." It's just stupid and comical, and it shows that Johns has zero understanding of Bruce's character. This is a kid who determined that from then on, he'd do his level best to make sure what happened to him didn't happen to anyone else. That doesn't mean Batman doesn't have time for his favourite colour. It's just comical and dumb.

And Batman beign emo is a proof Johns gets him LOL, I mean yeah batman is emo, and the "paint It black" reference is pure win, hell stupid randomness and funny things is the best Johns has to offer, he almost has enough pages to fill half issue, hahaha, I would totally buy that (cause Im not buying this but those pages plus a little bit of Wonder Woman´s ice cream coments and Hal beign dumb are cool)

Batman is only emo, when written by writers taking lazy shortcuts with the character. Could an emo guy have taken in Dick Grayson? Would it even have occurred to him to?

From: [personal profile] jlbarnett
there should be about 15 to 20 years of character growth between this and taking in Dick.

Fact is his parents loss is traumatizing to him. So seeing something associated with his mom at this point is not going to be his favorite anything. And he's also not going to be thinking about a new favorite either. It's perfectly logical

Batman beign emo is fun, I dont get the double standard, I dont like this comic beign serious and sruff.

Batman is still crying for his mommy and daddy in every universe, He taked Dick grayson because he is obsesed with family

To clarify, there are times for good writing and times for this. Batman beign emo and Superman beign the nerd, yada yada, It just feels "Aww!"

i find that a tad offensive.... i don't think you should be telling people how they should feel or react to having someone they care about die.... in front of them... violently.... you have your own reaction, that's fine, more power to you for being able to deal with it different. but i can tell you right now. As a 29 year old man, if someone i loved died in front of me violently... or someone i loved died... it would tear me up inside, and yes, i would want to paint my room black, or draw dark images... or feel like a piece of my heart died.... so yes. react how you want, but don't tell me, or anyone else how they should react....

"Tell me or your family dies in a relatively pleasant and painless way, smothered by custard and chocolate cake."

I'd LOVE to see a villain operating in that manner.

The Joker if it was, like the silver age, sure. Nowadays no-one's nearly imaginative enough with the character. I keep on saying - if they're insisting on pushing him as a murderer, at least change the MO up a little, every now and then. Even Morrison kept him dull and using razors.

What with all the villains running around, methinks there's probably one that specializes in making honey-caked threats.

King Bee, Detective Comics 247, memorable for sealing Batman into a small small hexagonal cell with heavy layers of wax to suffocate, and trapping Robin stuck in a jar filling up with of super-sticky honey to drown.

(Okay, only kidding, no such characters AFAIK)

Seriously, according to wiki, in the United States a capital murder is any murder that makes the perpetrator eligible for the death penalty.

Not all States have a death penalty.
