“Fall Of The Batmen” finale! With the team in disarray and facing their most powerful adversary yet, Batwoman must make a critical battlefield choice—one with the power to shatter everything Batman has built! You’ll be talking about this issue for years to come!


The team finds themselves at odds with Clayface as he wreaks havoc on Gotham, much like their very own Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, ala Ghostbusters.  The reader gets to see just how much of a genius Batwing is as he unleashes his version of Batwing drones. A key member of the Victim Syndicate has a sudden crisis of conscience giving the Bat Family a key advantage.

The ending of this story arc is one that will take your breath away. One could have predicted it if the character had not become so indelible, which makes the end so heartbreaking.


There are no negatives worth mentioning in this issue.



Buy, as this story feels like a blockbuster movie and melodrama all wrapped in one.
