At the end of Hush, Tommy Elliot reveals that he hates Bruce because Thomas Wayne saved Tommy's mother, which meant that Tommy couldn't inherit until his mother died. He tells Bruce/Batman that he tampered with the breaks in his parents car so that they would have an accident and die. I think it would be better if this had never happened. If Hush hated Bruce because he blamed him for the death of his father, Bruce would be able to relate to him more. Bruce would understand the intense emotions that occur after the loss of a parent and he would be able to feel an obssession not unlike his own crusade on crime redirected back at him. At the end of it all Bruce can truly "think like his enemy" and thats what makes it even more tragic. His oldest and best friend hates him and Bruce can understand why. I loved Hush both for the story and the artwork but for me the ending was a letdown and I've heard the same thing said y others. I know this happened years ago but with the advent of the DCnU, this seems like the right opportunity to retcon it. Thoughts?
