Otherwise we're just left with one more instance of Bruce acting like a brat.
You have to realize (and I mean no offense), that this is fiction, and the man Batman needed to get to didn't have to be at the dinner table.
He could've been home, lounging alone on the couch. Out on his back porch. He could've left the dining room to go upstairs and found Batman up there waiting for him, away from his family.
Snyder had the man sitting at the dinner table because he wanted Batman to break in like that in front of his family. Snyder wanted to see kids run screaming from Batman.
And it got the intended reaction, I suppose, because everyone thought it was awesome. But it certainly isn't heroic, and don't be surprised when Batman's own allies call him out on it. This does seem like a setup for conflict because Bruce is taking it all too far.
I'm just not personally interested in another story like this.
I fucking LOVED this issue. The best of the DotF arc so far. Not sure how anyone could really dislike it, tbh. People are so picky about comic books. This issue was great. The art was fucking brilliant from that first page to the last, which connected to the first and made it all come full circle. For the first time during this arc I actually can't wait to read the next issue. It's driving me crazy!
Batman and Robin 15 was also outstanding with brilliant twisted artwork.
I don't remember the moment in that specifically, but a humorous allusion is far different from "looking into his eyes and seeing love" or whatever.
That's kind of the key to the whole middle part of the issue where Batman's allies were mad at him. I don't blame you if you skipped that section though, it was wordy and boring.
So what's your point?
But I can understand why you would not be interested in this. This type of story can get old, throughout all forms of media. Bad guy hurting them on the inside, amongst each other instead of directly. Guess this is a perk of being "Junior" and not "Senior!" All plot concepts are still new to me!
You don't like that Snyder set up a scene where the dude helping the Joker is eating with his family and Bats just busts in and freaks everyone out. That Snyder should have had the dude alone. Are we back in the days of the comics code authority? Oh the children, think of the children! What were they in danger of, wetting their pull ups? They are already in danger by the fact that their father works at Arkham and Joker is threatening to kill them. And the batfamily was in danger the minute they agreed to be a member of the batfamily. Duh, it's a dangerous job. Other Bad guys have figured out Bruce's identity, Ras, Bane, and what did the batfamily do about it? Nothing! So why don't they kiss Bruce's big bat a$$.
Yeah, their dad clearly has made some poor life choices.They are already in danger by the fact that their father works at Arkham and Joker is threatening to kill them.
Indeed.And the batfamily was in danger the minute they agreed to be a member of the batfamily. Duh, it's a dangerous job.
Uh-huh.Other Bad guys have figured out Bruce's identity, Ras, Bane,
Oh, i'm sure they did a bit more than "nothing". Putting that aside, you seem to be taking the reactions of fictional characters a bit personally there.and what did the batfamily do about it? Nothing! So why don't they kiss Bruce's big bat a$$.
Not surprising, since you tend to take every discussion personally.
