I do believe that Bruce will kill Talia, and i'll never forgive Morrison for writing this idiotic drivel if Talia dies in any way as he's already been ruining her character with his fatuous and asinine writing.
I like the origin where she was a whore. Why does everyone hate that one so much? You know, there are plenty of whores in real life either by choice or circumstance. It was an interesting take on the character IMO, and for me personally, did not make me think any less of her.
Also, people seem to be saying they prefer the DKRises origin over Millers....Was I the only one who got the vibe that Selena was a bit of a whore in that movie?
I thought she was a whore too or at least in charge of an "escort" service.
I don't particularly like the prostitute origin story but i think it works. It lets her represent the darkest corners of Gotham. It makes her part of a world that is considered trash and full of undesirables. She knows what its like to do what is necessary to survive when no one wants to help. Through this experience she fights to protect and aid those that Batman and the police don't "have time" to deal with.
I think Batman will want to kill Heretic and Talia but he won't. Not directly. Heretic might die in some way other than by the hands of Batman or maybe Talia will kill him herself since she obviously doesn't care about him. I think Talia will live and Bruce will hate her for the rest of forever.
I assumed that the majority of people on this website actually read comic books so The Batman Extremist and The Nolan Extremist wouldn't really have any business here since they don't really read the material (I'm not insulting anyone, I promise). I just assumed. But, hey, the more Batman fans, the better.
