Wouldn´t it have made more sense to have Superman tower over Batman?

@entropy_aegis: I´d be okay with that if the writer can explain how he got this items and as long as it results in a good story.
Wouldn´t even be the first time Joker used Mad Hatters tech to mind control People. It already happened in Batman Tas.
@entropy_aegis: who says it joker toxin that did that? Its obviously something new. Joker is totally necessary. Snyder is finishing up what he started in zero year and dotf. So yes he is necessary to finish Snyder's story with him. That's why its called endgame. Mad hatter is a crappy villain compared to joker. Jokers been gone for two years and he's Batman's best villain, and its his 75th anniversary. Now is the perfect time for his return.
Joker could have also just stolen Mad Hatter tech or got a sample of the spores etc that Poison Ivy uses to mind control people (which already worked on Superman in Hush).
@johnqestion: then don't read it
She obviously didn't hit him that hard if he's not dead...
Which helps make the whole thing stupid when I believe it was Batman who said she wasn't holding back, no hesitation, wasn't pulling her hits and really was trying to kill him.
If that was true that he would be a puddle of mush.
Give me a sec I'll find the quote.
"She means to kill you Bruce. There is no conflict in her about it. No pupil dilation, no hesitation in her movements. Whatever is doing this to her, she's a bit slower than normal but the fact remains.......She's not pulling her punches. So you can't either."
I noticed this too when I read it. Bothered me a bit. In the end, it kind of leads me to believe that maybe this is all a dream/nightmare/whatever that they were mentioning at the beginning of the issue. I HOPE it isn't, because that's so cliche. Loved the issue though, and the reveal at the end was perfect. Can't wait for more.
Even when she wants to kill him she might not choose the quickest way to do it. I guess "no hesitation in her movements" means that Wonder Woman simply does not give Bruce a chance to dodge her attacks like she would in a training fight or if she was aware that she is being mind controlled.
I am glad the Regime members currently imprisoned where not entirely forgotton. While I am aware of how evil Superman is supposed to be in this Universe I am still sort of rooting for his side of the conflict. So many of my favourite characters are among his followers, Shazam, Wonder Woman, Robin...
@micah: - Everyone who's died so far went out with a bang and was extremely well written and emotional.
Have people already forgotten how a certain beloved character broke his neck on a pebble in season one?
@senglord: Perhaps he didn't have the right gadget at the moment or considered using this technque but couldn't bring himself to "kill" Dick .
Most likely , though Geoff Johns just wanted to give Bruce a reason to trust Luthor since they are going to be a team ,soon :l
Not entirely happy with the way Bruce was portrayed here , but I guess his irrational behaviour can be explained by his fear of seeing Dick die . At least he got to beat the crap out of Luthor . Hope people won't forget how many lives that bastard has ruined .
