Today sees the publication of Batman/Superman #3 and Joshua Williamson and David Marquez, and we finally get to see Batman go up against an Infected Commissioner Jim Gordon, turned into a Dark Dimension version of himself. And this version of Jim Gordon has a few home truths, like Alfred over in The Batman’s Grave, to tell Batman. First regarding Batman’s overall contribution to Gotham.
That’s a strong F grade there, Bruce. But Gordon also shows his working out.
How many Robins have to die? Cuts to the quick there. Mind you, over in Action Comics #1016, Natman himself seems to be a little more jokey about it all.
He is almost completely out of Robins. How callous, Batman. Still, maybe some of those lessons will rub off on the Robins that survive (or came back)…
Well, he clearly learns from the best. But Gordon has more matters to raise with Batman
I mean, I know that’s annoying, but worth revenge? So, can we check, which Batman is Josh Williamson writing here? Tom King Batman? Scott Snyder Batman? Brian Bendis Batman?
Scott Snyder Batman. Definitely.
