As the title suggests, what are your thoughts on him as a character?
Personally, I don’t get his popularity. I do get why the idea of a Batman with the Joker’s philosophy and sense of humour is appealing as it’s an idea I think everyone has had at some point. Trouble is I almost feel like such an idea could never live up to expectations.
Putting aside the fact he looks like a knock off Judge Death, I think my main issue with it is he is almost the living embodiment of the phrase ‘Because he is Batman...’ He can do anything, beat anyone and outsmart just about anyone. Having such plot armour just makes him very uninteresting in my eyes. I’ll admit one could argue the same for Batman as a character and I’ll concede that sometimes that can be rather frustrating but I don’t know... I feel Batman has more going for him.
I have no clue for instance if he’ll have any lasting impact in the future after this (what is this the fifth Multiversal crisis?) event concludes or if he’ll just be forgotten.
Sorry if this came across as a rant or something but I’m just curious to know if anyone feels the same or if I’m in the minority.
