Summary
As I’m writing this my love for Batwoman is no more. She took a man who was fighting his demons and trying to become a better person and taken his life. Yes he was destroying Gotham City, but if you wear the Bat symbol on your chest there is always another way; and that’s where it all comes down to. As a Batman fan Batman has always lived the code of no killing, even in the darkest of times that code has always been the core of everything Batman does. Now Batwoman has taken that code and through it out the window, my problem is that it wasn’t just any villain, but an ally who fought back to back with her. Can you imagine what she would do to anyone else if things were different? Now the team is split in two and the dark times are right in their shadows watching their every move. Finally, that cover by Guillem March and Jason Wright is a remembrance of Jason Todd’s death, and Clayface deserves to remembered as one of Batman’s fallen friends.
