'The John Ostrander/Kim Yale “Suicide Squad” run is my favorite ongoing superhero comic of all time. I basically wanted to pay tribute to that.' - Tom King

I STILL think something is up... Selena is a LOT of things... a murderer, let alone MASS murderer is NOT one of those things...

also it looks like Bane traded one addiction for another....

My guess is, somebody else she cares about killed those people (probably by accident. How do you kill 237 people by accident? Dunno, this is Gotham, weirdest things have happened). And she took the blame to protect them.

it could be the woman/lover who has been playing Catwoman while she's been Kingpin

I'm still shocked Gotham even has the death penalty I thought it was a thing of fiction in that city given Joker's body count.

Well, the only thing saving the Joker is that he has (usually) never been found fit (sane enough) to stand trial. The ONE time he WAS found fit to stand trial, he was found guilty and the State (whichever state it is) was about to execute him before Batman proved it wasn't the Joker who did it. (DAMMIT BATS)

Well if he was put on trial twice with insanity I can understand but given how writers are quick to bring out the super massucure Joker it becomes clear the court needs to put him down like a dog. Or some new hero similar to Magog disintegrate Joker point blank.

Seriously, dogs don't even get the kind of stay that Joker's had over the years.

"We can't execute the Joker. That would be barbaric!"

Nope, it' real. Turns out that her background now is...








... that Selina grew up in a Wayne Enterprise's orphanage, and the orphanage was targeted by terrorists, who set off a bomb and killed 163 children and 8 adults. So Selina tracked down the ones involved -- those who set the bombs, who built the bombs, who planned it, anyone remotely connected to the attack -- and killed them. They were all scum, and most were planning to do more bombings and worse stuff, but... yeah, she's murdered 237 people.

Why King decided to add this to her, rather than just have her be a cat burglar and jewel thief, is beyond me. (Was her "just" being a thief not enough for the "No, Selina, you are from the Wrong Side of the Tracks, and we can never be together!" relationship with Bruce?) Also, why make her an orphan? Wasn't her father, Rex Calabrese, a big-time mob boss, and her relationship with him a somewhat big part of Batman Eternal?

What the freaking Hell?

[inarticulate string of gibberish]
Nope, nope. Nooooope.

-"Wasn't her father, Rex Calabrese, a big-time mob boss, and her relationship with him a somewhat big part of Batman Eternal?"-
Shapeshifters! A robot! Temporal swirly things rewrote history! A highly convoluted gambit to ingrain [INSERT BAT-FAMILY MEMBER NAME HERE] to [INSERT CRIMINAL ORGANISATION NAME HERE]!

It was only two years ago. Seems a bit odd to get rid of it that quickly.
(Guess DC decided to get rid of everything the New 52 established, huh?)

Not necessarily a retcon. Just because you're in an orphanage doesn't mean you're a literal orphan. It could just mean your parentage is unknown. Wasn't it previously established that she grew up not knowing who her parents were?

Typos nobody caught, or spelling changes that don't really add or subtract anything? You decide!

*Laughs* You thought Felicia Hardy was messed up Selina Kyle just raised the body count.

So what's the difference between a formalist comic writer and a structuralist one? I've been thinking of King as the former, but Kieron Gillen recently talked about how what King actually is is a big-time structuralist.

It's so good to see that old cheesy outfit of Psycho Pirate again.
