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.
