How Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Should Have Ended

The final issue, an epilogue if you will, to Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s 4-plus year run on Batman comes to a close with what is very much a microcosm of Batman‘s self-titled comic during the New 52. Filled with some striking art, some questionable choices (why is Batman driving a penismobile?), humor, and a somewhat tantalizing mystery that ultimately leads nowhere all that interesting, Batman #51 is a fitting end to a period of the Dark Knight’s history I’d rather forget.

I don’t remember the last time I picked up a Batman comic. That’s insane to me given how much of the Dark Knight Detective’s adventures I’ve read over the years but, like much of the New 52, I soured on this version of the character. Not surprisingly, I found myself a bit lost in a series where Batman has been largely absent for a year and Jim Gordon has stepped into a Batsuit to help keep the city safe.

What did I just watch? Returning to the scene of the crime while building on the shaky foundation of 2013’s Man of Steel, a film which turned DC Comic’s moral center into a cold-blooded killer, director Zack Snyder and writer David S. Goyer expand DC’s bleak, joyless universe with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Batman: Bad Blood

batman-bad-blood-blu-rayBatman: Bad Blood is the third straight-to-DVD movie in the series that began with 2014’s Son of Batman. Following the events of Batman vs. Robin, the third movie continues to adapt previous comic storylines (this time both Dick Grayson‘s temporary stint as Batman and the events of “Leviathan“) while growing Batman’s supporting cast. Written by J.M. DeMatteis, Bad Blood begins with Batman‘s (Jason O’Mara) disappearance from Gotham while saving new vigilante Batwoman (Yvonne Strahovski) from an attack by the League of Assassins led by the Heretic (Travis Willingham).

Realizing Gotham needs a Batman, Nighwing (Sean Maher) takes on the mantle of the Bat while working along with Batwoman and Damian (Stuart Allan) to keep Gotham safe while investigating Batman’s whereabouts. Like most of Grant Morrison’s later work, “Leviathan” is messy, over-complicated, and flawed. DeMatteis takes the best aspects of the story, boiling it down, and merges it with Dick and Damian’s entertaining time as the Dynamic Duo.
