In Batman #55, KGB Beast, presumably under orders from Bane, tried to kill Nightwing. Or at least tried to try to kill Nightwing. Leading to a snowy smackdown in Alaska. And the Batman making a certain decision in Batman #57.
Not pulling the trigger. But as good as.
The Batman certainly crossing the line.
And sentencing the KGBeast to death. Is that where it would be left? The Batman basically killing Bane as much as Red Hood tried to kill The Penguin?
Well, no, just as in previous Batman comics from decades past, the KGBeast had a lucky escape.
As well as the overuse of the word ‘turd’ – he has been rescued, broken neck and all… the KGBeast lives to shoot another Nightwing another day.
Not that Nightwing seems to care much today…
