He's moved up a lot,but I dont think he'll ever reach Snyder's level,he could however be Johns without mental deficiencies.

@captainmarvel4ever: you need to read Batman and Robin #34. It is very good moments between Lex Luthor and Batman besides I think you need to give him a chance. Every great comics writer makes some bad comics for example Grant Morrison Final Crisis and Geoff Johns Justice League Vol 1 origins (the way he write Wonder Woman etc)

You need to read Batman and Robin #33, it's very very bad. The good moments between Lex and Bruce are ok, but they could be so much more, and the rest of that issue is so boring. Also this guy does not write Wonder Woman well either, did you read his issue of Batman and Wonder Woman? I know he's not a good enough writer to compete with Azzarello, but that was still some pretty lame writing. Also even when Morrison or Johns aren't at their best, their still pretty good.

No it's not,just because your boy Cyborg got stepped on like he deserves doesn't make it a bad comic,it was an ok issue like 6.5/10 or 3/5. Bad comics=Johns first year as JL writer. Batman & Robin #33 didn't have a single element of a bad comic,stop exaggerating.

That's not the only reason.

For starters Batman was acting like a child, which I can kind of understand because he's lost his son and has been losing a bit of his sanity, but it still felt like poor writing to me. What really felt like poor writing was the way the writer tried to make Batman seem like he's better then all the other members of the League, with the biggest strike being Batman hurting Cyborg with a switch on his belt. He's Cyborg, the ultimate machine from STAR Labs, a little button on Batman's belt should be nothing to him. If Batman was rebelling almost any member should be able to single handedly hold him back. Another thing is that stupid suit, it looks alright and makes sense, but the way it was built sounds like it was made up by a sixth grader. Also the writer made every other member seem like an immature nobody, but what was most disappointing was the talk with Superman, which I thought would save the issue. It was so brief, shallow, and pointless that it felt like it didn't even happen. The cherry on top of all this being that the art for this issue wasn't great. The one thing I did like was seeing Kalibak's first appearance in the New 52, and part of me is hoping that the writer will surprise us by making this event connect with the new Green Lantern event in which the Lanterns face the New Gods (I know it's a slime chance but it would be a cool surprise).

There's not a single legit point in this entire post.

Batman has every reason in the world to act like this,just because you dont "feel it" doesn't make it bad.

Batman is much more calculated and tactical than all other JL members,I'm sorry but you should not read comics with Batman in them,or only Johns Batman comics. You have a problem with the character and what he is capable of,this is who he is PERIOD, I have noticed that this is a recurring issue for many Johns fans,start accepting who Batman is. This isn't a Tomasi problem or Snyder problem or even Morrison problem,this is a Batman problem. So not a viable complaint at all.

Cyborg can come back when he does something impressive,he can be the most impressive machine made by God himself for all I care,and Batman merely disrupted his teleporter and that too for several seconds at best. Nowhere near as bad as being Deathstrokes whipping boy for decades. Again not a viable complaint.

The suit is stupid why? I'll answer because Batman,if Cyborg made this suit you'd be calling him the next coming of Tony Stark. There's nothing wrong with it,infact it's unlikely to even survive this arc.

The JL was immature? isnt that consistent with how Johns writes them?

His talk with Superman was fine,last time I checked this isn't a Superman comic.

I think Gleasons art is fantastic.

I find it amusing that you think Soule is God's gift(hahaha),ok that's your opinion and I respect that but even you can see the double standards here,Tomasi is bad cause YOU dont like Batman & Robin while Soule is good cause good reviews for Doomed(mind you Pak's issues got the best reception). For Soule you use reviews for Tomasi you use your own opinion.

Why am I not getting any notifications? Geez...

@squalleon: The less said about that the better...

@deathpoolthet1000: Honestly, I don't care about her race or whether DC is trying to be diverse or whatever, I just don't understand why this character needs to exist.

@jayc1324: Yes, but those characters usually symbolize something, that's why they have analogues and expies in other realities. On the other hand, I'm pretty sure a universe can survive without a Power Girl.

That's how I feel about Harper Row.

This puts Forever Rubbish to shame,we got more in one issue than Johns could give in 3.

@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

Catwoman kisses the thugs to get them distracted in order to be able to do the counterattack. You could say that she uses it to get under the skin of the criminals.

Well in Batman: Endgame, Black Mask got himself in control of all Gotham and he was very thought during that part of Wargames.

Deathstroke would have escaped the prison, staying in the prison equals no money and that isn't good for business (but he conveniently waited for Amanda Waller to appear). Also he didn't seem like the enhanced mercenary that he is supposed to be.

Actually Lady shiva wasn't testing Batman to see if his skill matched hers, She was testing him to see if he was worthy of helping Ra´s Al Ghul in his mission to purge Gotham of evil, but Batman failed because he would never take a life. In the game, Shiva wanted to purge the evil of Gotham, something that in the comics she wouldn't even bother by that. She was like a random League of assassins ninja and her combat ability only proved that. Sometimes the combat ability of a character is very important to make the character believable, If you make a character the best and most skilled assassin in the world and then she gets beat up like any other thug, I would doubt that the character is an assassin, I would only consider that character as a Joke. This thing happends to both Slade and Lady Shiva.

With that excuse I could say that the Bane in Arkham asylum is a new character because he doesn't resemble anything of the original character. They could have used the original Copperhead but they were lazy and they didn´t wanted to search on him.

She can distract them in other ways,point is they saw her as a sexy cat lady,to them that's ALL she was.

One terrible story,that writers spent years trying to undo.Even then BM didn't display much intelligence or capability,it was just dumb luck.

We never saw him accepting Waller's offer,we dont know what happened,and he was there for just one night. He was enhanced,his bio made it clear and he had a healing factor as a playable character.

Again the boss fights depend on your skill,Slade could be the toughest S.O.B in the world but he cant beat you if you're too good. She didn't want to purge the evil of Gotham,she was indifferent to it's destruction at Ra's al Ghul hands.

How is it laziness,it's not like the original Copperhead was worth a damn in the first place,eh she's a Johns character now that I remember,blame it on the fanboy.

She lacked the skill and the intelligence to find other ways to beat them.

How convenient that every story that conflicts with what you are saying, is garbage or an extremely bad portrayal of the character . Maybe you should send Rocksteady a list of stories you like about Batman.

You ignored what I was saying. Why didn't he escaped while the joker was rioting, that was the perfect time to escape? Why would Slade want to expend more time in prison? The awnser is because the guys who created AO wanted to make a Suicide Squad teaser. You know that the bio of Bane in Arkham city says that he is a brilliant strategist, right? Does that make him a brilliant strategist? In the game Batman also regenerated his health and armor.

This what Shiva said: "What do you know of justice? Behind bars or beyond them, these people never change. As long as they live, Gotham is stained." She seemed pretty concerned about justice. In comics, Shiva never seemed concern about Justice, She only tells Batman that in order to be a worthy opponent of her, he should kill.

Because you don´t like another character, It doesn't mean that there are no other people who like the character.

No she doesn't, now I'm getting the impression you dont get her either. How much skill and intelligence does it take to own random thugs?

Yes it was garbage,garbage because they killed off BM a year after it was written so much for big villain,garbage because it destroyed Batman's relationship with Leslie,garbage because it tried to destroy Stephanie and both were undone fairly quickly,garbage because it tried to create conflict between Batman and the GCPD but this plot line was put to the back burner and dropped without notice. No one mentions War Games and good story in the same breath,like I said writers spent every story trying to undo it immediately after it was published.

That's plot buddy,plot required that Slade not escape,and again he was there for just one night,he didn't escape during the riots because JOKER MADE SURE HE COULDN'T ESCAPE,that's actually complimenting the character. I dont hate AC Bane because he lost,or because he wasn't a big part of the story,that's what you're doing for Deathstroke. Slade's healing wasn't like Batman's healing,c'mon.

Lets say I'm willing to concede on Shiva,so what? she still displayed much more personality than Two-Face for instance and he's supposed to be a top Batman rogue unlike her,even AO Bane wasn't 100% accurate to the source material. I'll make my point clear,Rocksteady displays only surface level knowledge of their characters,they have shown that they are either incapable or unable to show more.

Tell me who cares about Copperhead? name one solo story in the last twenty years and you conveniently ignored my point about the new character having yet to be formally introduced in the comics,she actually exists in the and has been mentioned and now that Copperhead is dead she'll show up. This no different from D-list characters having their mantles passed along,it's been happening for years.

@entropy_aegis: So he's cocky and arrogant. So what. His version was quite a good version anyway. TDKSA was a joke on purpose and so was all star. No one should take those seriously, or as a testament to his skill

And year one.

No reason to get so upset at him over one little thing he said.

No TDKSA was not a joke and neither was All-Star,where are you getting this from? TDKSA was marketed as the sequel to TDKR,do you consider TDKR to be a joke? and he's been writing like this for years,yes that's exactly his skill these days.

He's saying stupid crap.

@entropy_aegis: I don't see how stories like TDKR and year one would have destroyed batman. I said Frank Miller "created" and inspired everything about BA batman, not that he wrote him. But what was written probably would have been different without miller. I really don't find anything he said to be wrong.

How about TDKSA and All-Star? he's wrong because he's giving the impression that IF YOU MAKE A BATMAN MOVIE,YOU BETTER ADHERE TO HIS VISION.

How could Miller create BA Batman?

@entropy_aegis: 1. He could be joking

2. So? He did kind of "create" the bronze age batman. Year one. The dark knight returns. Set the tone for that entire era. The batman we had before new 52 started came from his stories and ideas.

1. Not really.

2. Um O'Neal wrote BA Batman,Frank created Post-Crisis Batman and lets be honest his work was experimental,it was the others who perfected it. Had he been allowed,Frank would have destroyed Batman just as fast.

No Lois is a much more interesting character than WW imo,if Superman fans are that tired of her then why not hand her over to the Batman mythos? she'll be a great addition.

What did Batman ever do to you?

Besides, he's already got Vicky Vale, who is far more superior. And less annoying.

Vicky is just a poor Lois ripoff,it's not even clever or subtle.
