The Joker and the Stag (the ritual murderer of exemplars introduced in last year's Batman Annual) knocked him out.

He woke up restrained.

" Exciting! " smiled the Joker.

" I wasn't sure you'd wake up this time. "

Batman took in his surroundings. )

"My version of Tarzan would skip the racism and be about him being a strange dude that suckled from an ape breast & eats raw." - Steve Orlando

"For a lot of our social contracts to function on a day-to-day basis, and on a global basis—they’re ripe with opportunities for abuse—and we need to cut to the core of can we be good? That’s the only way this whole thing works. And the Justice League is trying to cut to the core of this. I hope they’re right." - Steve Orlando

"I have a reputation around the offices for an intense and very detailed love of DC Comics characters. Pitching characters that editors haven’t heard of in years and years that haven’t appeared in decades and decades. That sort of rich love of the DC Universe is why they thought of me for JLA. It’s a book that pulls together a diverse array of characters and interests and settings and explores the wonder and awe of the DCU. That’s the way I feel about the characters and the company." - Steve Orlando

"For readers and for people within the DC Universe, he’s a pillar. But we do bring a team with such different backgrounds and experiences that cast a different light on characters you might have thought opinion was unified on.

"It’s not a perfect example, but large portions of the community tend to deify Mother Teresa. But if you’re a queer person you probably don’t do that, because she had strong opinions about you. The reason I bring this up is because you have characters, when they look at Batman, they do see a lot of good things, but they also see a lot of privilege and they also see a lot of things that could be better and things that could be questioned." - Steve Orlando

"I am always hesitant to lean into Superman too soon – in my mind, and I say it all the time, if Kal-El never landed on Earth, Kara would STILL become Supergirl. She would still learn from her experience coming to Earth and want to pay that forward on her own grand scale. So I want that to be more clear than ever." - Steve Orlando

"We all wish that we could do that and we need to be inspired to do that when it comes to being strong. Not of course to punch our fist through people’s faces, but that’s the most exciting thing about being able to tell these stories. Finally, a gay couple gets to be the heroes and get to tell stories, where, for a relative rarity, we don’t die at the end. We’re the heroes now and finally we get to be in that space." -- Steve Orlando

"Midnighter and Apollo is the book we need right now. Comics’ most iconic queer couple face down a new enemy and show us that we can never give in to fear, hatred, and evil—and they do it with their own brand of action-movie wit and punching." -- Steve Orlando

He'd discovered that one was alive when he'd gone to lay both his fathers to rest.

He'd learnt how they'd come together and gone apart, and why he'd grown up in foster care.

Now, with the help of one of the most dangerous men on the world of Ektae, he was riding to confront a man who was even more so- his father, C. Jdorn Bakolier.

The confrontation began with the footsoldiers, two armies blasting away at each other.

Then Jordan called Bakolier out.

Bakolier answered him.

They looked each other in the eye- and leapt.

Jordan shattered Bakolier's armor with the first blow. )

In doing so, he learned that his father from Ektae- the realm that, every seven years for one week, linked up with Earth- was still alive.

Standing on the shores of Tarn Smithseat on Ektae, he knew that he wanted answers.

So he went to his surrogate mother, who told him the story of how his dads'd met about thirty-five years ago.

It happened when they were both on Earth. )
