Never saw Catwoman. And I can't believe Batman & Robin has so many fans.

People have forgotten the damage it inflicted on Batman thanks to the success Batman has been enjoying,and the recent upsurge in popularity of the Adam West era has created some people who are apologetic for Batman & Robin.

Batman and Robin was crap,plain and simple.

Nah,we already have Ra's and this guy can be reserved for some other character like Andrew Bennet. Btw Nocturna is a vampire now as well.

@entropy_aegis: Yes. Lois and Bruce, Clark and Selina. He said Kaiyo is setting things up.

I'm aware of the team ups,that's not getting it on.

@sanohibiki: I think it is pre-Wonder Woman. It is First Contact, which means Kaiyo might be messing with time again. I asked Greg, but who knows if he'll respond. =D

He did say that Batman and Lois get it on though.

He did?

@jayc1324: It's not just Bane imo, Rocksteady doesn't really get any character,AO for all it flaws DID get those characters,little things like Bane trying to overcome his addiction,Deadshot's death wish etc go a long way to prove that WB Montreal did have people who had considerable knowledge. Rocksteady's depictions felt to me they were the handiwork of individuals with limited exposure to these characters. Hugo Strange's characterization just amounted to "HAHA I know you identity" this is something anyone can find in a wiki,same goes for Freeze(MUH WIFE), or sex object Catwoman(she kissed people as part of her move set,that's completely OOC)

Rocksteady was barely scratching the surface of these characters potential,I didn't mind much at first after all it's a video game and things like accuracy and characterization never factored much in to my judgement but AO showed me it's possible to incorporate those elements.

what's OOC?

Out of character,Selina is a woman of class,she wouldn't just kiss a random,dirty thug.

It really depends on what portrayal of the character you choose. In Batman Year one a story that is considered one of the best batman stories, Selina was a prostitute and in some of her appearances she acts too slutty. Also in AO, Black Mask was a punk who has easily beaten and all of his mob was overtaken by the Joker. They also modified some of the things in the Ridler Origin. Death stroke was beaten easily by Batman and Lady Shiva too. Copperhead wasn´t like in the comics. And there are more characters that seem too different. So I think that It is unfair what you are saying, the thing that AO did best was Bane in terms of character.

Year:One has almost elusively been ignored by different Catwoman writes over the years,it's a bit telling really and Frank Miller cant go long without writing his women as hookers, there's much more to Catwoman than T&A, few writers recognize this and IMO Rocksteady didn't. Yes she is slutty after all she's supposed to get under Batman's skin but that doesn't mean she would go around kissing random people,that's Ivy's job.

Black Mask has always been a talent less bully and punk,he was perfectly in character,he got beat because Joker>>>>>>Black Mask.

I dont get the Deathstroke complaint,as a boss he's only as tough as the player wants him to be, story wise the writers didnt want him to have a larger role,that's their decision,he too was perfectly in character,that little chat he had with Batman in Blackgate is proof.

Shiva was there to test him,the financial reward was secondary in her eyes,the fight again only as tough as the players skill levels ,perfectly in character,as Saren asked why are characterization and combat being mixed over?

This Copperhead is a brand new character,who has yet to make her debut

@entropy_aegis: Arkham bane was not right in the head. If batman killed he could clean Gotham too. That same bane got wrecked by batman later on. Not so great.

That was WB Montreal's explanation to cover up Rocksteeady's lousy decisions. Bane didn't kill anyone in AW,ok Cobb killed a few D-listers but that's it.

Bane got wrecked because status quo is God. and we're talking about characterization,Arkham Bane is crap,there's no way around it.

@entropy_aegis: You act like I don't hate when Deathstroke is wanked. I hated the Identity Crisis fight. And Luthor is JL is still a villain that the JL will have to deal with. He's not DC's answer to Iron Man now.

Again, comparing what Kord has done to what Batman has done is not fair since Batman has been published more than anyone elose in comics. All you have to go by for Ted being smarter than Bruce is that everyone who has ever met both always says..."Ted is smarter than Bruce," i think even Batman has admitted to it.

As far as Hiro is concerned, when did anyone ever say Luthor had a superior. Even if Luthor did, he would've killed him so Lex can be best.

Don't go too far, buddy. Geoff just introduced Ted Kord into the DCnU; we're about to see his genius at work. It will probably be him who gets the upper hand on Lex and I'll laugh as you guys cry over it.

Ted is smart because Ted is smart,that's his shtick but it does not make him smarter than Batman,and I honestly dont care about statements,it's just a lazy way of pusing the character without any creativity,remember Sentry fighting Galactus?

Yeah and Batman will get 30 other showings by a dozen different writers,if anything it's Johns who'll look like a retard.
