This tells us how the baddies survived the apocalypse. Deathstroke rings a bell with a sword and shrugs off the infection. Jason Todd saunters into the bat cave and finds Tim, Bruce and Dick’s dead bodies on the bat cave floor. He buries them and we see Bruce’s epithet. Did he bother with ones for Tim and Dick?
Wasn’t Tim an adult? Why is he drawn as a tween? Ace a bat dog suddenly shows up. We see in photo in Wayne Manor of Bruce’s large bat family. He loved playing the loner in contrary to all logic.
Rose Wilson and her dad bond. Man Bat is seen. Mirror Master and Vandal Savage prance. Nobody is insane with fear. What are Babel lenses? Various D grade baddies lurk. The Creeper looks like a sex offender. Cassandra Cain lurks. Bullock dies and Gordon lives.
Gordon learns his daughter is dead. Nobody buries her, Catwoman or Batwoman. Gordon knew who Batman was? Jason is angry he
didn’t get to kill the Joker. He ties the Joker’s corpse to the bat mobile with some cable ties he just had to hand. There are jokes amidst the utter misery, menace and threat.
Jason doesn’t like being called Robin. Who has the hero who helped the kids? This was good. Active criminals plot. Jason is loud and combative. Good won’t prevail over iniquity. Vandal Savage has ruthless logic. Jason remains deservedly unloved. This was not stunningly evocative as terrible things happen. Society disintegrates. Jason, Gordon and Cassandra Cain make a desperate attempt to survive.
“…He wasn’t the one they were running from.”
“He never did let me drive the car.”
“Bruce Wayne Father Mentor Bastard Batman.”
“Bring every weapon you can carry.”
“Or I could leave you on the roof surrounded by death and you could try to get your helicopter back in the air? Sure, it’s in pieces and on fire…”
“This is a really weird interaction.”
“With no predator to stand against them,”
“Grundy is tree lobster.”
“I’ve fully embraced your analogy.”
“She’s the only bat coming.”
“Batman is…was terrible at expressing anything with words. And he had absolutely no consideration for personal boundaries. But he violated your trust and secretly monitored you for a reason…”
“It’s an apocalypse……don’t judge me.”
“It’s Bludhaven, so an undead virus is almost an improvement.”
“You want to remove the corpse of the psychotic clown from the roof of the car?”
“Then she went away. She…never came back.”
“The heroes are going to fail. They’re not ruthless enough to survive. I am over fifty thousand years old. This is not the first extinction event I’ve faced. We’re going to inherit whatever’s left of the planet when this is gone.”
