I figured out M. Night Snyder's twist ending.
It is really Owl Man wearing Joker's face. That is why everyone keeps literally saying "He's [Joker] changed this time". And that is why Joker felt the need to rant about their relationship on the bridge. The crazy Owl wants to be as important to Batman as Joker is
Snyder's Batman Annual was really good, it was great right up until the last panel.
But this arc is average at best, and average for DC is pretty bad lately. Both of the back-ups have been top notch though.
Yeah Snyder's writing couldn't have possibly gotten worse. People just hate him because he's popular!
You sound like one of those people who would defend Justin Bieber with "Oh you're just jealous."

Things I'm reading that I usually enjoy, Action, Aquaman, Nightwing, last 2 issues of 'Tec, Earth 2
Things I'm also reading but know some issues will disappoint, DK, B&R, Swamp Thing, Inc.
Things I'm still reading but might drop any second Batman, JL, Superman
Things I already dropped WF, WW, 'Tec (came back for #0 and Layman), TT, RHatO
Average at DC is pretty bad right now.
Who exactly has become "very muted" when the topic of Snyder's writing has come up?
The heparin variant he came up with to use on Gordon is highly unlikely to be able to be triggered externally - but this is comics, so... - I prefer to think he laced Gordon's cigarettes, allowing for the chemical to build up in his system (time release). I'm also, however, of the view that there was something laced into the pictures, too, just not the heparin variant.
And I still say Joker is really Owl Man.
This is batman stories at his best ....
In brightest day, in blackest night,
No evil shall escape my sight
Let those who worship evil's might,
Beware my power... Green Lantern's light
However, if Joker did get into the cave and have a wander, as he has claimed, then, as with the clothing of the Gotham PD, he may have made some...chemical enhancements to the various suits...
Shoulders are too thin, and there's far too much weight lossAnd I still say Joker is really Owl Man.
It's Alfred, and there's going to be a Face/Off moment
Hey, you know who else used to write acclaimed Batman stories? Jeph Loeb. You all remember Long Halloween? And his Hush story got great reviews.
I bet he's still a great writer, and it's just fanboys trying to tear down his reputation. Surely someone of his caliber never wrote a bad story.
Yet another case of someone finding it easier to condemn the people he disagrees with rather than defend the text or his own views.
