    How does a check get retconned into an envelope of cash one issue later?

    She cashed the check and then only kept what she was owed.

    And I don't know how I feel about Bruce covering up Damian's death.

    Denial. If he can resurrect his son he won't have to hack a death certificate out.

    Why all the discussion of minutiae when the issue as a whole was just great. I've decided that B&R has definitely overtaken Batman now.

    B&R was always better than Batman.

    I thought Clayface looked cool, but just having him frame Bruce Wayne for a crime was a really obvious use for him. I figure this is just something Snyder wanted to crank out before getting to his next big story.

  • AmiguAmigu regular Registered User regular
    I enjoyed the last Batman but for some reason I wasn't very compelled to pick up the current one. Maybe the slightly higher price (compared to B&R) put me off. I'm not sure.

    I heard a rumor that Damian Wayne is going to become Terry McGinnis. He's brought back with no memory, and Bruce places him with another family so he can live a happy, normal life.

    Jiro's had quite a few costume changes now.

    So does this mean Inc is going on sans Morrison?

    Edit: Wait, I thought Jiro and Aquazon were supposed to be a thing?

    I hate bat cow.

    I want to be hip and open minded but that's not me.

    It's just this forced goofy callback to a joke that was kinda funny for a single panel.

  • AmiguAmigu regular Registered User regular
    Batcow is more meant to be cute than funny I think. See your problem isn't a bad sense f humor.

    You're just heartless

    Granted that is a factor, but my own intolerance of human warmth aside, its a fucking cow in the bat cave. *folds arms, looks forward to dying alone, surrounded by comics.*

    I think there's the potential for some really interesting ways to develop the Batcow. Kind of like what they did Ace in Batman Beyond and later in Epilogue.

    They should develop batcow into a batburger

    And then eat the burger

    Finding out that Harper Row was created because Snyder wanted to use Cass Cain and was specifically forbidden by Editorial to use her gives a very sad feeling. :(

    I wonder what Snyder's original plan for Cass was since Harper is a completely different character.

    Baseless speculation: maybe Death of the Family was supposed to end with more people incapacitated/out of the superhero scene and Bruce became closer to/worked more with Cassandra as a result?

    I do too.

    But rather than create an expy Synder created a different type of character.

    They are different characters but what they have in common is thu both speak to a similar part of the fan base.

    How long will it be 'til we see Harper Row again anyway, since Snyder is going to be writing the flashback story Year Zero?

    No it's not the attractiveness. There's a certain type of fan the following description probably doesn't apply perfectly to everyone but here we go. They post on tumblr, they're very into the "family" element of batman, it's important to them that different groups and minorities are represented in the comic, they might self identify as part of "fandom" and are often obsessed with a bunch of shows (supernatural and Sherlock come to mind), anime style fan art is popular with them and they love Steph Brown and Cas Cain. Harper is Pretty much made for that fan base. Which I'm fine with I think it's cool that there's more and different people into comics.

    It's my understanding that a noticeable amount of Cass/Steph fans hate Harper Row.

    I know she's also been regarded as being a blatant manipulation attempt by the author.

    I'm a Cass/Steph fan and I don't hate Harper.
    I just see her as a caricature of checked-boxes.

    Yeah, I can see Harper appealing to dudes like Snyder who liked The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, but I don't think Cass's fans have gotten behind her.
