DC Comics Universe and Batman Secret Files #2 Spoilers and Review.

City Of Bane Villains Get Spotlight Including Joker and Riddler! Where Is The Flashpoint Batman?

There are a few stories in this one-shot starting with…

…the Joker.

The second story involves…

…the Psycho Pirate.

The third story focussed on…

…the Riddler.

The fourth story spotlights…

…Huge Strange.

The fifth and final story zeroes in on…


What, no Flashpoint Batman? No Thomas Wayne? A character that has been simmering for a while and then came on front burner recently. This seems to reinforce the view that the character may only be in Bruce Wayne’s head? He’s only been on panel when Bruce Wayne has been around as a I recall.

I wonder if the person who crawled out the pit was Bruce Wayne who will be wearing a Flashpoint Batman costume for upcoming issues? Time will tell.

The Pulse:

While I enjoyed the character spotlights, particularly the Psycho Pirate one, I found the art styles from story to story so divergent that it was jarring. I also don’t understand how this one-shot adds to the City of Bane arc in the main Batman book. This just seemed like fifth week filler. 5 out of 10, but would have been lower without the Psycho Pirate story.
