DC Comics Universe and Batman #77 Spoilers and Review follows.
Flashpoint Batman Vs. Damian Wayne Robin!
Bane Replaces Alfred Pennyworth As Hostage?!
Building on what broke earlier, Robin is in Gotham City and confronted by the super-powerful Gotham Girl…
…who he subdues with Wand of Klarion utilizing magic!
That leads to a confrontation between Damian Wayne Robin and his grandfather Thomas Wayne Flashpoint Batman.
Robin draws first blood, but he can’t overpower the Flashpoint Batman despite easily handling his super-powered sidekick.
Damian Wayne is woken up by Thomas Wayne presumably in Wayne Manor where…
…he witnesses Bane breaking Alfred Pennyworth’s neck!
Robin is now their hostage as Pennyworth is dead?!
The book also included scenes with Catwoman and Batman with the latter having recuperated and ready to return to Gotham City, but…
…he’s not coming alone.
At least two interior apencillers in the book, but the whole thing – this whole arc actually – may well be some kind of fever dream or something else. Despite the action, drama and pathos of the issue, many key scenes ring untrue or hollow. That has more to do with the context had by a comics reader of many decades though. Solely looking at what’s in this book from first page to last page, the art is breathtaking and story is compelling and pulls you in. 9 out of 10.
