"I know I can write a book where someone stares out of a window and thinks deep thoughts. I know how to do that. But with Batman, I’m trying to do a big genre thing that will appeal to me when I was 12 and me now, where I just want to go outside and punch the sky. It’s hard, and against my own nature." - Tom King

Well, I guess that makes all those Catwoman murders canon, now? Weird direction to take with her.

Hold on. Did his back just miraculously heal in the same issue?

I think, but I could be very wrong, that they are implying that Batman worked out a way to sort of dislocate his back in some sort of bat-contortionist way that made Bane think he had broken his back. It is stupid, but a different brand of stupid that is plausible in comic book terms.

I read it that Bane just dislocated Batman's back, like what happened in TDKR. Bane says here that he's not strong enough anymore to actually break Batman's back.

Right, and then Batman re-set his own spine using those handholds he punched into the wall. That's how I read it.

Oh, dear. Did Selina just utter, "purrrfectly" in a nonchalant and non-ironic manner? I don't feel that the author has a good grasp on her character. Not to mention her taking the lives of so many people.

Even at 12 I would've realized how contrived this all is. Although at 12 I was reading the Brubaker and Rucka Batman, so my standards might be different.

Can we get Eschergirls to weigh in on this? They know how comic book spines work.

This is where we find out that Batman trained with the Hawkeye Initiative.

I reject this new canon for Selina and will wait for the retcon. Never have to wait too long these days in comics for that! :)

This is more of a nitpick, but why exactly is Bane naked?
