    According to EW.com, Diggle's stop at Gotham is part of the next of the set up for the thing in the spoilers.

    For a member who pretty much admits he's more of a fan of less serious/ lighter superhero content, you are far too sensitive about that and suggesting something never said. This board is overflowing with opposing views about TV, movies and everything else, but none of it impacts my enjoyment of the actual material amongst those in my real life. Debate is debate, arguments (heated or not) happen, but nothing stops me from enjoying whatever superhero content is of interest.


    Incorrect, but I've noticed you never comment on certain members who have invested years attacking films, the filmmakers and those who enjoy certain kinds of comic-based films/TV in innumerable threads, often claiming the nonsensical "ashamed" of superhero/comic films, or fans being "emo" for enjoying certain types of superhero adaptations, etc. Not a word. One could draw a certain conclusion from that, but I will table the subject.


    This is where you are truly off the rails: if the producers/writers of TV series or movie deliberately use real world issues as its plot, or in some cases, a season-driving narrative, its there to explore/address said real world issues, not mention something in passing, and its back to superhero-ing. Just as you believe certain productions are not for certain audiences, the same can be said of anyone watching shows/films with a conscious showrunner decision to deal with real world sociopolitical issues (whether the handling is great or terrible), yet complain when those issues are examined by viewers, as if the series or movie never intended to shape its characters, plots with that kind of content.

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    Are the ex crows all going to become ssupervillain henchpeople? Nope. Don't like that word. How about "Henches"?

    100 grand a year, to zip and a squirt of unemployment insurance... GOTHAM OWES THEM! They kept the peace for years, so they should have at least one free pass to pull off a bank job, each.

    I usually refer to them as either goons or minions.

    The question of who's to be the next police commissioner of Gotham is still up in the air, yes?

    Henching professionals.


    Apparently so. Were you thinking of Jacob for the job? Apparently a commissioner doesn't have to be a police officer, since it's an administrative/political position.

    "Goons."

    "Who?"

    "Hired goons."

    "Hired goons?"


    That wouldn't be a bad way to keep him in the show, I was wondering if they were setting up to write Jacob off at the end of the season, sweep away some of the many planets still orbiting the darkened star of Kate Kane, perhaps along with Alice, Sophie, and/or Kate herself. On the other hand, "I just shut down my private security contractor because my feckless leadership allowed it to become massively corrupt and outright criminal (in addition to only providing reliable public safety services to those who can afford to pay top-dollar, as intended), and now I'm ready to do the same thing to the real police!" isn't much of a campaign.

    Heck, if he ran as a Republican, he'd be a shoo-in with that platform.

    Wasn't there a story in one of the comics where somebody had started an app that the villains could use to hire goons?

    @JD: there was a story arc in Marvel's Ant-Man comics about hench-recruiting apps.

    I'm thinking that Jacob might be the last person who ought to be running for that office, let alone endorsing other candidates...say, Sophie's sister, Jordan?

    I believe Sophie was forecasting her own interest in that position by talking Wilder and Luke about the importance of keeping a black person represented in law enforcement. She would be the logical candidate for the job, and it would giver her something to do instead of being a third wheel to the Bat-team. The only issue is that in the real world, anyone who was a member of an organization known to be corrupt (thanks to Jacob's presser) would face not only a torrential flood of questions, but doubt among the public. She would need to earn that position in some significant way.

    I nominate Kate Kane. Sure she has no background in law enforcement but why the heck not?

    I'm hoping for Commissioner Barbara Gordon. I'm tempted to suggest Dina Meyer for the role, but she's 7 years older than Warren Christie, so that doesn't quite work out. But hey, if Walter Koenig and Tom Welling could both play characters 9 years their junior, why not her?

    Oh. I guess that would preclude Batwoman using her.

    Even if it's not Barbara Gordon, it could still be an opportunity to bring in another member of the Batfamily or even a villain, like post or pre-Two-Face Harvey Dent, or Penguin, who has occasionally gotten involved in politics in the comics and adaptations.
    That must have been what I was thinking of.

    I don't know how he'd balance it with his other duties but Luke would be an interesting choice for commissioner. He's been security with Wayne Enterprises and his recent run in might be persuasive if he's running on cleaning up the police.

    I doubt it would go to anyone that young.
