Criminal And Crimefighter
Conversations 253 – The Good
Knight, Freedom Female, Red Witch,
& Spiderous-Man On Working With
One thing this comic gets into is that not too long ago “Batman” met the alternate reality version of his dad. He was from the “Flashpoint” world (which shouldn’t exist because it’s an alternate timeline that was erased not another universe but…comics). In the “Flashpoint” world “Bruce Wayne’s” dad becomes “Batman” after “Bruce” is killed by criminals. His mom also becomes “The Joker”. People generally seem to like this idea, but I find it completely ridiculous.
I think it’s even worse that “Batman” and “Dad Batman” actually met. The whole point of “Batman” is that he represent a child’s reaction to losing his parents. It’s a kid saying “no one will ever die again” and meaning it. This is also why it’s so important that “Batman” doesn’t kill.
An adult wouldn’t have the same reaction, and even his they did they wouldn’t EXACTLY the same thing. “Batman” used his childhood fear of bats as weapon. Why would his dad do the same thing? What I’m getting at is he would at least have a different gimmick. Maybe rabid squirrels or something?
Tomorrow Spiderous-Man and Freedom Female return and are joined by “Perfect” Spiderous-Man and Admiral Fire. They discuss aborting a plan. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
