the only thing that I thought would have been cool to see would have been since Spider-Man had been acting a little colder in recent stories if Ock had been him a little while longer and without our knowledge, since he somehow seemed to carry his attitude and slight humor last issue, we had been reading him be Spider-Man for a bit.

but that was a big selling point for this book i thought. to have the team of fraction and aja? i hate that stuff.

@Sleepbutnodream15: is that what happened? because it was a little unclear to me i thought his face was just getting smashed.

not to be lame, or pull a spoiler or anything, but http://www.comicvine.com/forums/off-topic/5/superior-spider-man-theory/704656/ that's kind of cool.

see, this issue was a masterpiece. my only complaint has zero to do with the issue but the overall muddied clarity of the new 52 concept. when joker's face was cut off in Detective Comics #1, that was supposed to be his first appearance. Batman didn't have a clue who he was. Just that he was this criminal doing these heinous acts. Then the villain the dollmaker came out of nowhere and took off his face.

I think DC thought they had some new, great creepy villain in the Dollmaker in so much that he was the one that could do that to the Joker (marvel makes this mistake ALL the time with their new villains, like dragonball z) and of course he ended up being a dud. I know I'm getting away from the point but the thing is, this issue was so phenomenal. my favorite of snyder's entire run so far. and they keep bringing up all of the stuff that happened in the past, another fact that i love. but when you recall at what period he supposedly got his face taken and that was when Batman was sort of new and hadn't even met dick yet and that now they're saying it's only been a year and damian is all excited (awesome timeframe, makes me question damian beating him with a crowbar and the sexton thing though) it just sort of makes it seem like the reason for the new 52, all the continuity, they've already kind of screwed up.

i can't read this series i really just...can't, but you mean to tell me they actually just went the whole burton route? that's just... where dc sucked before the new 52 has gotten better (except superman, ha) and where it was remarkable they've just kind of said screw it to some of the characters histories who we all know and love so much (the books are good, and i can't comment on GL but i know most people say it's great) it just feels like they're sort of demolishing years upon years of batman lore just for this. sorry the book sucked to read so much

this was terrific honestly stunning. i remember when someone at marvel said the out of ideas quip. my only question is; no more mysterio? because he just can't come back. also, if he knew peter died in the ultimate universe a little while back now, then why didn't he try to act in the 616 universe, or at least try to play to his advantage?

this is an issue where i did like it but i get that whole alternate universe feeling. it's cool, but i always was able to go back to the regular one and be happy with what was given there and the familiarity. i always saw dick as becoming a better detective when he became batman, beforehand not so much. that was bruce and tim's thing. also the whole "months later" labeling, when i think months later i think at least 4-5. so this time frame thing i think dc is really starting to realize they messed up bad.

the other thing i'm not so much a fan of is him not living at wayne manor and giving him a job a la terry mcginnis. the only reason i could see is the area where people in the real world found it funny that a man took a boy into his home like batman did. and making humorous jabs at the characters like in the venture brothers. almost as if DC just got wind of it and decided "we'll be having none of that, they'll just work at his manor now! that's more modern day friendly!" when they should realize it worked because it was an orphan taking in another orphan, like kindred spirits. i don't know, this has just been getting me mad sort of.

i didn't mind this "origin" compared to some others. what really screws EVERYTHING up is this whole the joker made jason todd thing. i don't know if this was some weird story telling device, and if so..um..okay(?) but that's a crazy idea. you're telling me the joker knew HE was robin. so how hard would it be to link that batman is bruce wayne?
