Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

Damian's characterization seemed kinda off to me in WF. I can't quite put my finger on where exactly, though.

I'm not overly familiar with him but it struck me as a bit "odd" too, maybe his over-eagerness to kill or otherwise greatly harm Huntress, something I would have thought he'd know better than to do in his time with Bruce.

His overeagerness to kill has been something that has and continues to be explored in "Batman and Robin"...having not read the issue though I can't really comment as to why he was off. Perhaps it was just the writer not really writing him "right" which has happened on occasion when Damian has appeared in other books.

The revelation about the Shining Knight doesn't surprise me, except that it is pleasant to see a little more diversity in the DCU. What also should not surprise me is the angry internet fan-troll response to the Newsarama article. "Blubber blubber why doesn't everyone look like Barry Allen in 1956 blubber blubber whine?"

Yes, it might well be a publicity stunt. But it is surprising how often publicity stunts actually helped effect necessary historical change.

Batman #14: Oh boy. Things pick up as Joker ups the anty against Batman and his allies and starts to reveal his overall plan. I really dig this Joker, and Greg Capullo's artwork is brilliant.

How do people feel about the Joker's new maintenance man costume replacing his old purple coat? I thought it just was a one time thing but apparently it's the permanent uniform. Not sure how I feel about that.

I read Batgirl #14, haven't been reading the book, is this the same evil Gordon son from the Snyder issues of Detective pre-relaunch? Did they change anything about him?

Also, is Gordon married in the current continuity? Did the Joker still kill Sarah Essen? Did No Man's Land still happen? I hate this relaunch

I have no problem with his appearance, his attire has to do with his new mentality and focus right now. Harley basically states to Batman that he's not "her Mistah Jay" any more...and she's right. It would appear that Joker has changed right down to the type of clothing he wears, and yes James Jr is the same character from Snyder's run in Detective Comics. Gordon is not married currently, but we've seen Babs mother I believe in "Batgirl" at least she appeared I believe in the second arc. Not sure if Essen and Jim were married or the No Man's Land massacre occurred. We were told prior to the relaunch that everything Batman oriented still happened...but as usual that could have changed.

Didn't they say that Tim was never a Robin now? And do Stephanie or Cassandra even exist anymore?

He was Red Robin from the start. So still a Robin in my opinion.

Catching up now in a few titles over the past two weeks (not that I'm done marking; I just don't are any more). Wonder Woman remains interesting: I respect the attempt to create a consistent look even when artists change, and the Olympus plot is gathering steam even after the first arc.

I wouldn't worry about the Joker's new look. Nothing is permanent with the Clown Prince of Crime.

Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

Liked both of my books this week (Batgirl and Batman), Batman was very good and I like where the "Death of the Family" story is going. Batgirl was pretty darn good too, but the "shocker ending" was a bit silly. For some reason it made me think of when Beetlejuice wanted to marry Lydia in, well, "Beetlejuice" Basically just our psycho antagonist character wanting to marry the young hottie because he's unbalanced with deeper motivations.

I found some of the art in "Batgirl" to be odd and not very... "flattering" towards Barbra? Too many lines on a character's face and body makes them look old and flabby.

I'm not much feeling the Joker's "new look" either and really the medical and biological mechanics of it all baffle me.

Still good couple of books look forward to where DotF goes from here.

I never got the impression that the Joker wanted to marry Batgirl. He was trying to torment her with her mother's severed ring finger. He was using the marriage bit as a joke, you know, because he's the Joker.
