Tom King likes his Batman susceptible. That is the biggest takeaway I have noticed so far from this series, and I like it. From the 1st issue where he is making an attempt to forestall a plane that goes to crash into Gotham City and face his own demise, to figuring out that having other heroes like Gotham and Gotham Girl around to assist isn’t such a bad idea. Even the lengths of physical pain he is willing to endure to avoid wasting a person show that the caped crusader is the true definition of a hero.
Batman has no super power. His super power is his heart. Sure the dark knight may act cold from time to time, but his intention now as an older and wiser hero is to maintain not just the citizens of his city safe however the participants of the bat family to boot. That family now comprises Gotham Girl. There is a very cool storytelling method used throughout the book where we are studying narration in what seems to be passages from a letter.
I won’t spoil anything else, but by the end it made me smile when I found out what was going on. It was clever, and I loved being surprised by the tip of the book. I cannot wait to see where “I Am Suicide” goes and why Batman picked the members he did for his team. We know he does every thing for a reason, and seems one step ahead of his enemy many of the time. So it is appealing that we get an argument where he goes in fists swinging first. Batman is up to anything here, and I cannot wait to see what it is.
