The Absolute And Utter Grossness Of Batman Inc #12 (BIG SPOILERS)

Big spoilers for today’s climactic Batman Inc #12, so be warned. You thought #8 was bad? This is worse.

This comic is rated T by DC Comics’ content code. Which reads;

T TEEN Appropriate for readers age 12 and older. May contain mild violence, language and/or suggestive themes.

Just for comparison’s sake,

T+ TEEN PLUS Appropriate for readers age 16 and older. May contain moderate violence, mild profanity, graphic imagery and/or suggestive themes.

We’ve noted just what “mild violence” has meant for DC titles in the past… but this issue of Batman Inc goes a little further. Into massive spoiler territory too, so be warned…

First we see behind the helmet of the Heretic.

He was grown too soon, too young, a baby in an adult’s body, still retaining those toddler looks. Then we see the after-effects of a certain incident…

Okay, did anyone just throw up a little? It might not have been so bad if it hadn’t been so detailed and the features quite so cute-in-concept from Chris Burnham‘s pen.

But seriously, is there a difference between this DC comic and Bleeding-Cool-owners-Avatar’s Uber right now?

Okay.,, maybe a little bit. But at least that’s a Nazi, not a fully grown baby-man…
