Gotham City is under attack, but this time by one of its own knight! Red Robin is gone, what’s taken over his body is Brother Eye. Assimilation has commenced and Brother Eye and his OMAC’s seek to create a new future, one that will be “protected” by Brother Eye himself. Batman and the Bat-family try to fight and save what’s left of Gotham, but when more of the Bat-family fall to Brother Eye; all hopes look to be lost.
What you need to know:
Ulysses Armstrong has pushed Red Robin to the edge and now Brother Eye controls his body. As the OMAC’s rush across the City of Gotham the dark future Tim Drake was afraid of has come true and it is at full effect. What’s worse is that Batwing and Azrael have fallen to the same fate Tim Drake has. With Spoiler and Orphan leading the way to break into The Belfry 2.0, they seek to end the madness and save their fellow Bat-family members… if there is still time? Will Batwoman survive the night as Brother Tim attacks her and shows her visions of the future Tim Drake has been afraid of?
What you’ll find out:
I know this won’t catch on, but I’m going to call him this name anyway… Brother Tim. Brother Eye and Tim Drake… you get it. As Brother Tim pushes his OMAC army over the skies of Gotham City, he looks to show the citizens of Gotham the way to a safe and new future. He will set the City on track and will not let it fall like it has done before. Undenounced to him, Spoiler and Orphan break into The Belfry to shut Brother Eye system down. As they reach the heart of the Tower, they are stopped by Brother Eye; there he shows them on a timeline where they were part of the Bat-family and not outsiders how they are now. With visions of a time that will come or never come, Spoiler and Orphan question their entire mission.
What just happened?
“You were accepted. You were part of their world. A part of their lives.” Brother Eye really hitting the girl’s right in the heart.
