Batman incorporated

Eternal Crisis of the Pantsless Superheroes. Like them or hate, crises are a big part of the DCU. You can discuss them alongside books like Secret Six and other events like Green Lantern: Blackest Night.

I'm glad we're finally getting the 'why' behind Batman Inc. Bruce didn't just wake up from 'death' and say, "Hot damn I should go global!".. he apparently saw something while in the Omega Sanction. Curious to know what that is..

Batman Inc #7
Loved it. A great story about a dynamic duo who are also father and son who do things on a budget and do it for the betterment of their people. It's a really cool story and I would recommend it. I also like how the first page with each panel you get you also get some credits. It feels like the opening of a movie and it's a very cool feel to the book. I like the Batman Inc characters in this issue and overall, a very good issue.

Batman Inc #7
Really keeping up the standards with this issue. I loved the relationship between Man of Bats and his son. The setting felt 'realistic' without going down the cliche Frank Miller 'gritty' route and had an almost Silver Age Neil Adams era GL/GA social awareness vibe goin on. You know...

'Gee Batman take a look around you, this is how it really is on the barrio/mean streets/suicide alley/recession hit heartland/reservation'.

Extending the analogy, in a weird way, Bruce is playing the role of both Ollie and Hal here - the naive super hero and avenging philanthropist, wealthy socialist rather than socialite Bruce Wayne!.

It's good that Wayne's foreign policy - globalisation tactic isn't ignoring homeland security. How fitting that Batman, like Superman, a depression spawned hero, is in this contemporary recession hit era confronting the real evils of the world - poverty and class war . Once again the class difference lines between Bats and Supes is drawn. Don't forget, Wayne has a butler who looks after his toys, Kent has a boss who yells at him when he's late. (Makes me even more interested to see Morrison's upcoming post A.S.S take on the Man of Steel. My guess is he'll play more on Clark's working class roots).

Meanwhile someone is feeding dangerous drugs into Man of Bats 'hood and the reasons can only be political. I'm suddenly scared of whoever this 'Leviathan' turns out to be.

I am very curious as to who 'Leviathan' is as well. Should be an interesting reveal.

I've just had a crazy thought about who could be behind Leviathan. What if it's the Wayne Corporation? What if while Bruce was 'dead' his company had got out of control? What if, without his input it had become an evil multi-national corporation, exploiting minorities and dealing in drugs and munitions? Batman's rogues are always twisted reflections of himself. What if Batman Incorporated's twisted reflection turned out to be Wayne Enterprises?

I mean, let's be honest here. That is such a Morrison-thing to do. It would be amazing and chances are, maybe you could go back to the beginning of Morrison's run and figure out how that theory fits in to the overall story that he was telling.

Volume 2 Issue #1

I gave it a chance because I liked the way the solicitation made the book sound. I finished re-reading the first volume in the Deluxe Edition and I wasn't incredibly impressed. Morrison always has these moments of greatness for me, but tends to let me down on the whole. I really wanted to like Issue #1 of Volume 2, but I feel like Morrison had undone everything that Tomasi has done on Batman & Robin. I realize he "created" Damian, but the character has come pretty far in my eyes, and Morrison characterization of him felt wrong to me.

Yeah, a coherent fairly linear story from Morrison.. can't ask for much more :lol:

I don't really know where this fits it, I think they're still wrapping up the Leviathan story from before the relaunch.. either way, I liked the issue and the implication that Ra's is behind Leviathan. I'm sure Robin taking a bullet is a swerve, but overall it was a solid issue.

I have to say... I LOVE this series. I missed the first half since I wasn't really that into comics at the time. Then once the New 52 happened, I never picked up Leviathan Strikes. I skipped the first issue after that and went right into the Talia origin story. WHICH I ADORED. Conceived at a music festival? Yes, please.

The story has kept me interested even if I don't really know the Inc. characters so well. I'm really intrigued by the rumors of Damian dying. Nonetheless, a buddy of mine told me that knowing Morrison, he has some incredible plans for Damian and when he comes back he will probably not be the same little Damian we all know and love. In case he's right, I'm not going to tell anyone his ridiculously awesome theory.

So #8 happened.... Holy crap, I definitely teared up. Mainly the scene between Damian and Dick. The scene that followed was brutal and hard to read knowing what was going to happen. Talia is so screwed, but so is a particular someone else.

I have to say though... It was all so incredibly well written and not even slightly Morrison-y, which I figured it would be. Truly heartbreaking, BUT we are still talking about a Morrison penned story and we still have issues to go. I don't think this will be the last we see of Damian... The state, age, and personality of Damian, when and if he returns, is a totally different question.

it was a very well written issue, the Dick and Damien stuff was amazing. Was a good way for him to go, but I do think that it was lessened by the whole DOTF crossover. I know that the Morrison book is in the new 52 but technically just finishing off his story from pre flashpoint, so I am sure he had the whole thing planned out way before all of this.

I think this book would have had more impact without DOTF and if DC didn't spoil the whole thing before hand. You want to make news about Robin dying? Post it Wednesday afternoon.

I really dug #8. I loved Damien and Dick together and almost hope that someone decides to tell a few "lost" stories about the two of them as Batman and Robin. I have really grow to dig this book.

They spoiled it for the hype and I think it worked. Midtown Comics in Manhattan completely sold out of it by the time I got to the store.

I got the last copy at my LCS and there was guy behind me in line that was clearly angry about that.
