    I don't think that is true....see Black Mirror. Joker knew that Dick wasn't "his" Batman and obviously longed for Bruce to be back beneath the cowl.

    I'm in this boat too, for the most part. I don't need to read a classic issue every month for it to be worth my money. Just something good, entertaining, and most importantly, something that gives me something to look forward to over the following month. While I hated this issue, the first two were a lot of fun, and I'll give it a shot next issue.

    Hahahahahaha. My co-workers were wondering why I was staring at my mobile, and laughing hysterical.

    I don't get how Joker "loving" Batman is all of sudden something new. This is something that's been alluded to since DKR.

    The scene with Batman crashing the dinner was awesome. Sorry, but if Batman thinks you're a scumbag, he's not going to care if his children are in the room. He didn't know this guy was kosher, until he interrogated him. And if he was supposed to know all this before he crashed the party, I guess Batman doesn't ever need to interrogate anyone again. Because he' obviously psychic.

    That's once.

    In an Elseworlds.

    Not this Batman anyway. Hell, he doesn't even care if you really are a scumbag, or if you're just an innocent victim being manipulated by a psychopath.

    And what happens when he realises you're not? Does he apologise to the family for the misunderstanding? Does he make amends? Does he stalk out and leave the victim to pick up the pieces; to explain to his family what happened, why Batman thought what he did and why he did it?

    There are immediate repercussions to that family unit...

    He's Batman, he just gets up and leaves. Batman DGAF. But, your third answer seemed best. Let the guy explain why Batman was after him. I'm sure they'd understand.

    Well, there's Detective Comics, Batman: The Dark Knight and Batman Inc, all of which are entertaining and offer something different from this title.

    Uh, no? He had to use detective work to track down that guy in the first place by tracking a phone signal and then hacking camera footage to see his face and then find out his identity from that. But how was he supposed to know his motive from just his identity? He's a detective, not a mind-reader.

    Seriously, this issue had its share of faults and bad moments, but you're just inventing problems that aren't there.

    Well considering most people take this story as cannon (except when they are trying to make a point) I see how it works. Plus, I'm sure if I go through my books I can find plenty more examples (too bad I'm at work and don't really care anyway, since I liked it.)

    Way to negate the second half of that post so your point made sense. Like I said Batman didn't know this guy was on the up and up until he interrogated him. Ya know, like how he finds out a lot of his info? To think he knew this guys motives before hand, would mean he was psychic. It's obvious people want Batgod who does no wrong, but some of us like the fact that he's human, and might make mistakes now and then.

    Hey, if you like it, that's great.

    But the premise of this story requires that Batman quit being Batman for 10 years after Jason's death, so it's sorta not cannon, period.

    Good story? Yes.

    Cannon? No.

    What you fail to understand is that I made a comment on the actual writing, not on the fictional character, which is something to which you do frequently on other related threads. So point? Fail.

    Like you do with Gail Simone's writing on a regular basis?
    Pull list:
    Batgirl, Inhuman, Justice League Beyond 2.0, Letter 44, She-Hulk, SM/WW, Swamp Thing, Ultimate FF (lol, 5 of my 8 titles all written by SOULE)

    Tec and TDK both suck right now too and garner similar criticisms.

    At least I've still got Inc. (For now.)

    I didn't invent anything. Batman jumped through a window and harassed an innocent man in front of his family. That doesn't fit for me.

    Except that it's not a non issue. Heellllooooo. Bats is obsessed with figuring out what makes Joker tick. This is the same dude who purposely stuck himself in an isolation chamber for weeks in the hopes of gaining incite into how Joker's mind works. So yeah, the fact that Joker is doing these things not out of hate, but love would be a significant revelation to him, not to mention disturbing, and probably another layer of guilt to add on.

    And in Broken City

    And in Joker's Apprentice

    And that LODK story with him and Jim Gordon

    And that Teen Titans story where Lex makes fun of Joker's batman love

    And that weird a$$ Showcase issue where he dreams of tearing his face off (deja vu)

    And the most recent issue of Catwoman.

    Thanks man. Now I don't have to go through my collection when I get home. Plus, I'm sure there's countless more examples.


    Oh, and I have to say it every time I see it. Broken City was terrible. Azz has no handle on Batman, at all.

    Look, I'm not saying it's never been alluded to.

    This was just really unsubtle, heavy handed and poorly written imo.
