Betrayal from someone close. Someone relied upon. Someone you thought you knew — and now, in an instant, no longer do.
Today sees three comic books reach their 50th issues of their current volume. And in a bizarre coincidence, they all have the same twist. Batman #50, Green Lanterns #50, and Star Wars #50.
The first has been most widely revealed — and no, not that Catwoman betrayed Batman, quite the opposite, from her perspective. But Holly Robinson betrayed both Catwoman and Batman by being part of Bane’s plan to break the Batman by raising his hopes of marriage and then dashing them at the last second. Gotham Girl, Skeets, and Thomas Wayne will have something to explain as well.
While over in Green Lanterns #50, John Stewart is betrayed by his own ring, disobeying his commands, when fighting a new and unexpected foe. And it seems that this betrayal may be spreading among the rings, if the final page reveal is anything to go by.
While Star Wars #50, dubbed the end of Hope, and the final issue before the series heads into The Empire Strikes Back sees the ally built up over recent years ruthlessly betray the entire Rebel fleet to the Empire.
However, for those who feel jaded by the same twist three times in the same day, Star Wars #50 gives you an additional process that shows all the reasons that led up to that moment and defy the reader to have done anything differently in their place.
Star Wars #50, Batman #50, and Green Lanterns #50 are available today.
