The honeymoon’s over for Bruce Wayne as Gotham City’s most prominent citizen gets selected for jury duty in a chilling court case involving Mr. Freeze! Freeze claims the charges should be dismissed because Batman used excessive force; cue the outrage and media circus. While doing his civic duty, Wayne’s forced to take a hard look at the Dark Knight’s methods. And hey…what is Dick Grayson doing running around the city dressed as Batman?

And for Catwoman

Gotham’s a toxic litter box for Selina Kyle of late, so she hits the road looking to clear the air, change her look and clear her name, too—there’s a copycat burglar swiping her M.O. who needs sorting out. In her hometown, Catwoman runs afoul of a crime boss who’s also hunting this impostor. Can the two declare a truce to hunt a mutual enemy, or will Selina end up just more roadkill?

So… honeymoon over already? Did it ever begin? She’s called the Bat-Bride but what generated such a toxic atmosphere in Gotham for Catwoman? With Bruce Wayne filling his time doing jury duty? Catwoman surrounded by cats, holding the Batwedding issue with her wedding dress in disrepair?

Trouble in Batparadise already?
