Ok wait... Batman's dad is a baddie? And Bane breaks Alfred's neck? Classic short term thinking. If you burn down the theater for shock value what do you do for the encore show DC?

Good questions.

I honestly don't know WTF is going on with DC right now. When I look through DC's solicitations it feels like DC has 3 or 4 contradictory events going on at the same time, so I wouldn't be surprised if DC completely ignores this entire story.

The fact that Batman's father is around at all is beyond terrible. The entire reason Batman exists is that he's an orphan. The same with them bringing back Superman's Kryptonian father. It's so fucking stupid.

Those are the kinds of things you expect when people have completely run out of new ideas.

It's beyond running out of ideas. It's so antithetical to the character that it's like, "What if we wrote a story where the spider survived and returns to take the powers away from Peter? And Uncle Ben is able to be revived because the 'thief' Peter let escape was actually trying to hide an experimental medicaton (which could save humanity) that his scientist brother had created and given to him to protect-- and the 'thief' hid it by injecting it in Uncle Ben, who's been hibernating all this time. And when they revive Ben, they treat his cancer, which he didn't know he had, but would have gone untreated if Peter had tried to stop the 'thief' earlier in the day. In fact, by having the 'thief' arrested, Peter was responsible for Ben hibernating in a coffin for decades unnecessarily."
