| > > knowing this wont make the mess that is batman RIP any better. somebody get morrison out of the batman comic please. taking obscure references and obscure characters out of DC's past WITHOUT explaning or introducing any of it properly with some sense and doing it just for the "coolness" factor takes the fun out of reading the comicbook. |
> Except the old stories aren't necessary, they're what's going through Batman's head as the story progresses. Are they hallucinations, real memories, warped versions of real memories? That's what we're going to find out.
That's my problem with it though. I'm more confused over the stories than enjoying them. Morrison is doing this simply for the "coolness" factor of it. Characters like the Zrun-whoever and ones like Libra over in Final Crisis. Heck even James Robinson over in Superman bringing back Atlas. I wouldn't of known any of these characters existed before if I didn't visit these boards. I would just think they're lame new characters the writers came up with and ones that don't interest me a lot.

> There aren't many other writers I'd trust to try and make this work. Morrison is one of them. Even just taken without the psychedelic rambligns of Batman, Dr Hurt's range and scale of his plan is comprehensive and impressive (such as taking Nightwing out of the equation as completely as possible without doing any permanent damage to him)
I'm still trying to figure out what's the purpose in all of it. The motivation behind doing it and really I must of missed an issue because I can't figure out what caused Batman to go nuts in the first place.
