Context is for the weak!

Context, of a sort, under the cut

Whilst infiltrating a base of some sort, which has nice lawns and wildlife, Batman has a net dropped on him and is confronted by Batwoman, Nightwing and Red Hood, who try to reason with him and to calm down and listen to them... that goes about as well as expected. He takes down Batwoman first and then...

The Freudian implications of Bruce bondaging "Jason" with the batcape to one side, does it get any better than Batman hitting "Nightwing" upside the head with a robot flamingo? I think not.

Written by Scott Snyder, art by Giuseppe Camuncoli.

You know you've hit the apotheosis of Batman villainy when you see Batman hit Nightwing with a flamingo and think "Okay, is the Penguin or the Mad Hatter behind this?".

"...my family knows how to #$%^ fight."

This is a horrid piece of dialog for Batman. Are we sure this isn't All-Star Batman and Robin?

Seriously, why not, "I trained them better than that" or "They wouldn't be that sloppy, even after all those years away."

Ah, Snyder...

What's wrong with Batman swearing?

Clearly the word was "fist", but with a different connotation.

It's not that bad. All it does is emphasize a point.

A flamingo as a weapon against Nightwing? Somehow it fits quite elegantly. :)

I'm pretty sure that for most people, capes went out of style over a century ago.

What's going on with the cape in that third panel, anyway? Did Batman borrow the Cloak of Levitation from MCU Doctor Strange?

I think that's Cocoon Mode - Snyder!Batman's had that in his arsenal since Future's End. It's probably less Dr. Strange's cloak and more Cap's magnet-mounted shield - additional functionality through engineering.

He got it from Superman's cellophane S-shield snare seen in the theatrial cut of Superman II
