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

There is something that bothers me about Batman and Robin: Damian should never have been fooled by the fake Batman for a single second. He would have known right away that it was not his father, because Damian has demonstrated plenty of times that he is his father's son.

Yep. Which is one of the reasons why I dropped the book due to Tomasai's inconsistent writing and apparent lack of understanding of Damian.

Another vote for the return of the face. Him not having it does nothing for the character.
Yeah, it's pretty much the only thing from the New 52 Batman stuff I don't like. It also doesn't help that its from the part where the start of Detective went meh with that doll maker stuff.
Joker's face being cut off was at least partially Snyder's request. When the early issues of New 52 were being planned, the Bat-editors wanted to keep some of the big villain names out of the picture for a while to give the writers time to develop some new villains of their own. Tony Daniel offered a few suggestions on how to remove Joker, one of which was Joker's face getting cut off. Snyder then requested that idea, because he thought it would tie in well with the story he was planning for post-"Court of the Owls."

I'm not saying that that makes the idea better, just clarifying that it wasn't only Tony Daniel involved in the decision.

To be fair, Damien was drugged as well, so he wasn't in his full capacity.

To be fair his mother should have had him on drugs a lot already building up his immunity to sedatives and poisons... That is if his morning regiment isn't to take a bunch of anti toxins after he brushes his teeth.

Like all kids in Gotham City he's likely on a healthy regiment of Ritalin and Venom.

So Vibe is going to be the Earths Multi-verse border guard. I may have to pick this up now just to see who will be dropping into our Earth from the multiverse. At least the premise is better than Vibe street level crime guy.

Yeah, I am sad that Vibe just started to look interesting to me. I'm a sucker for multiverse stuff. At the same time, since Karen Starr has spent five years looking for a way back to Earth-2, and her operation looks very sophisticated, we ought to get an explanation for how she never stumbled across the weakened threshold at Detroit.

It's because she never researched the Power of Breakdance.

Ha! Way back in Nightwing's first arc, I commented that someone should have noticed that Nightwing had a connection to Haley's Circus, when he cropped up in every city it visited. Turns out I was right. The Joker noticed! I feel smart.

Also, has it always been a thing that Nightwing has to get stabbed in every issue, and bounce back like nothing happened? It seems like it's been a trend for him since New52.

All three Green Lantern titles came out today, and I finally felt like the "Third Army" is going somewhere now, apparently because it's ending in the next issue! What a weird story. It was just random stories of random attacks and now all of a sudden it's almost over? I think that was probably my favorite issue of New Guardians because it actually felt relevant to the larger franchise.

It was great to see something finally freaking happening in the Green Lantern titles.

Maybe the stabbings some kind of nod that Didio wanted to kill off Nightwing in Infinite Crisis

Yeah, I suppose that's true.

Getting Wonder Woman and Batwoman this week, probably Sword of Sorcery.

Anyone else read Threshold? I thought the first story started well, very Giffenesque, but petered out a bit towards its cliffhanger. The Larfleeze I could take or leave: I think his one Christmas special was about as good as a Larfleeze solo story can be.
