Not nearly as good as the Realworlds Batman one. (Then again, that set the bar rather high.)

Among other things, I wonder how, if this is supposed to be a "real world" scenario, Eddie survived getting what looked to be multiple shots straight in the chest. Yes, he built himself up good in jail but muscle bulk doesn't make you bulletproof.

Also, the "refraining from violence after looking into a widdle innocent child's eyes" bit was fresh when Rorschach did it in Watchmen, but by now it's a cliché.

But mainly, Eddie just doesn't strike me as particularly relatable or sympathetic even with his spur-of-the-moment heroic deed. Yes, he was harshly bullied, and got fired as a result but that didn't force him to burglarize the dude's apartment. Nor to become a crime boss himself after getting out of the tank.

Thanks for the scans. I had the Batman comic, but not this one.

After all the sludge of this story, something uplifting by the end. That's a Superman story.

At a glance I actually prefer this to the Batman one. It's a bit louder and not quite as grounded, but it still feels less cheesy than the other one.
