It was Nyssa al Ghul, not Talia.

Why are DC's animated movies still using the pre-new 52 outfits? is it because they were already getting made before the New 52, or are they just worried that if they put them in their new costumes people won't want to watch them?

Yeah, they're trying to stay faithful to the stories that they're adapting. After Flashpoint, I'm sure they'll be using nothing but DCnU suits regardless of the story.

I'd feel much better about this if Harper Row was Stephanie Brown and her dad was Cluemaster. DC sidelining characters, popular characters, just to make more characters that essentially fill the same role as those they sidelined makes no sense whatsoever.

I'm sure it's great and all, but why not use Blue Marvel instead of Hyperion? I just don't get it. I mean sure, their powersets are close, but I'm just typically not a fan of alternate reality characters, especially when unused 616 characters who fill the same function are lying around.

Hyperion was used because his origin ties into the current arc of New Avengers. The plots of New Avengers and Avengers are going to be constantly overlapping. What was being described in New Avengers so far happens on panel in Avengers even though Avengers isn't covering the story, and it happens to Hyperion. That's why Hyperion is in the book. Why Hickman didn't just use the good Hyperions that have either visited or currently reside in the main 616 universe is the question worth asking, and it's probably because he wanted a Hyperion without the baggage.

There were parts that I really didn't get about this book. It had plenty of redeeming qualities, but I just don't understand where Hickman is trying to go from here. Plus, what the hell was with that one AIM guy's dialogue where he was stuttering?

I also find it hard to believe that the Avengers would have missed something as important as another impact site. which AIM just happened to find without them knowing. And did Hickman really feel it was necessary to rehash exactly how Hyperion is a Superman clone?

The AIM guy stuttered because he had a stutter. There's nothing more to it. Some people stutter, even mad scientists. Also, considering that the Avengers wouldn't have found the sixth impact site without Hyperion--him being there was a chance happening in and of itself--it's not hard to imagine that while they struggled to find the sixth, they missed one.

And yes he did, because not everyone reading Avengers is familiar with Hyperion.

They need to hurry up and restore Ganthet.

And the fact that this is a crossover that's leading into another crossover is somewhat annoying, but I'll tolerate it since the last few issues of all of the Lantern tie-ins have been rock solid.

I'm hardly a lawyer or anything, but doesn't pleading guilty to murder usually take the death penalty off the table?

Nope. You may get a lesser sentence like life in prison if you plead guilty, but that doesn't mean that pleading guilty will save you from lethal injection. Especially with the body-count of Punisher Jr.

This is the creative team the book should've started out with. After the creative team shakeups, all of the Batman books are worth reading now, which is pretty damn good.

A horrible ending to a horrible story. Good job, Marvel. You blatantly ignored continuity as a means to deliver some epic conclusion to a saga that's been brewing for years, and in the end, it was lackluster.

The only plus I see is the fact that they didn't forget about the whole White Phoenix thing. But even that was done wrong.

Everything was fine until the Joker backup.

I've heard there is a continuity error that Damien is ten but bats started his career roughly 7 years ago is this true, is there an explanation?

Batman started six years ago according to Detective and Batman #0. This issue syncs up perfectly with pre-reboot Batman, especially with the ending of this issue pretty much mirroring Damian's actual debut in Batman & Son.

But the Batman line as a whole is plagued with a broken timeline because no matter what DC is trying to say, Batman only works when operating on a 10 year timeline at the very least. So, DC would either have to age Batman or have him travel around the world at a younger age.
