BATGIRL #8 (includes spoilers)

#1 Posted by pinkdaizygirl (114 posts) - - Show Bio

OK, so was anyone else shocked to learn that Danny was the one who called the cops to pick up Babs after the Joker shot her? I have to admit. I got a bit choked up.

Not only that, but what about the ending???

JAMES??? JAMES FRIKKIN JR???

That flashback Bab's mom had was bad enough. He's done so much to poor Barbara and her mom! Now he's back? I can't wait till that plotline is revealed.

And, one more thing...

I really hope Batgirl will beat the utter crap out of Joker.

Agreed on all counts. I'm glad that I wasn't the only one that got choked up as a result of the issue's emotional reveal... I know some people dismissed it, but for me that was quite a heavy impact. I'm absolutely terrified by the reveal at the end of the book... and 500% echo your sentiments on the Joker... of course, I have a feeling that his absence from the Batverse at the moment is going to lead to a major story arc for the character... one where I'd love to see Barb get her revenge.

@pinkdaizygirl: I liked the Danny story, too. Really put motivation and morality into perspective. Almost felt bad for him.

@Kal'smahboi: yeah! I felt the same way.

Nothing scares me more than insanity. Thats what I loved about Black Mirror. Hope they continue in the right direction with this James plot.

James Jr. irritates the living sh*t out of me.

I liked it, though I'm not sure how I feel about Danny.

I liked James Jr. I did not like that they brought him back so quickly.

I want James Jr to become one of Batgirl's greatest rogues.

That'd be interesting...fighting demons from her past in the cowl and out.

James Gordon Jr. is a nice villain but I think that he was brought up too quickly.

I just find him to be really annoying.

: Well, I know some people who like the fact the character exists, but who also think there's a limit of maniacs that a comic is able to create/handle. They find it annoying that Gotham's villains are basically maniacs and the fews who are not don't last much. I can see their point. Some of these freak characters are genius, but others are kind of unecessary.

I don't know if it's the same to you, but you just reminded of it.

And by the way... psychopaths don't tend to be the nicest people hehe.
