About this deal

This also leads to Catwoman being asked to find Cobblepot's offspring and give them their respective inheritances. The seemingly unstoppable robot assassin was designed by Wayne as a contingency plan to reign in any member of the Justice League who goes rogue, including Batman himself.

Chip Zdarsky has begun his Batman run in a way that’s pulled me in similarly to how Snyder did with his Court of Owls. Batman's current run under the stewardship of Chip Zdarsky has taken the Dark Knight to a very different place. The thing I don't like about this book is, recently, I have just read too many books of Batman bring on the back foot or getting to put it another way, getting his butt kicked.Unfortunately, he decides to do this by framing Batman for his murder, resulting in the erroneous activation of Failsafe. Eric Lee hails from the Bay Area and has been one of the biggest fans of Batman since he was 2 years old when his dad showed him Tim Burton's 'Batman' on a fuzzy VHS.

It’s a story of youthful hubris and what happens when decisions from our past come back to haunt us. As an extension of Batman's mind, he would know that The Dark Knight did not kill Penguin and therefore did not deserve Failsafe's wrath. During the update, Zur challenged Failsafe to a fight in which Failsafe's termination protocols activated. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.My engagement with this brooding narrative has led me to offer a 4/5 review, one that reflects the depth of its storytelling and the prowess of its creators. Batman's need to be ready for everything really gets himself into trouble and just how he deals with the that threat is part of the fun. Batman's recent battle with Failsafe, and his adventures in an alternate universe, all seem to confirm this. With a 4/5 rating, this volume stands as a testament to the enduring allure of Batman’s world and the ability of talented creators to delve into its depths. Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: While Zur-En-Arrh is ultimately a Well-Intentioned Extremist rather than outright evil, Batman notes that he has an advantage over his other self even after Zur-En-Arrh transferred into Failsafe as he is a human being who is prepared to take precautions and avoid mistakes, whereas Zur-En-Arrh puts himself in danger because he overestimates what he can take in a fight.

The scene itself also just isn’t very interesting to me because of the sugarcoated dialogue and unrealistic interactions between the characters. Bruce Wayne and Anton explain they want to find Avery Oblonsky to understand the art of espionage and disguise. The Catwoman back-up story was a bit silly, but the Zur En Arrh one was solid, with appropriately modified artwork as Batman flips between the two identities (three, if you count Bruce Wayne! Being now framed for murder, this unstoppable freight train in the form of an indestructible AI machine, he must outthink himself to put an end to this chaos generated by Failsafe, a devastating force that does not hesitate to put his loved ones at risk, no matter the costs.And in the backup, there’s chaos in Gotham as the underworld fights over one of its crown jewels… and Selina Kyle is caught in the middle.

When Batman falls from a skyscraper through the roof of another building, he simply gets up and carries on.Bruce is suspicious of Ra's al Ghul as, even though he is saying he is saving the world, he is also training assassins. Authored by Chip Zdarsky and brought to life through the illustrations of Jorge Jiménez, this hardcover volume immerses readers into a world where the streets are meaner, the dangers are deadlier, and the enigmatic Caped Crusader is conspicuously absent. Jorge’s work is absolutely gorgeous and is quickly becoming an artist who will go down as one of the best Batman artists of all time. In fact, even the two short stories drawn respectively by artists Belén Ortega and Leonardo Romero have excellent artwork that brilliantly fits with the stories being told there.
