The lights are on
Confused about continuity? Want to start your own Marvel vs. DC superhero war? Head on in to pick apart storylines, books, artists, authors, and much more. The superhero registration line starts here.
Court of Owls- introduced batman's possible brother, Thomas Wayne jr.
It revealed that, even though Batman thought he knew everything about Gotham, the entire time it was being controlled by a seceret society that pushed him to his limits, deduced his seceret idenity, invaded his home and drove him crazy (literally).
Death of the Family-
Just because there was not actual death, does not mean nothing happened. The figurative "Death of the Family", as in their trust and family-aspect of Batman being shattered by the Joker.
Explained the story of the Joker Card in the Batcave.
Explained that Joker really doesn't even care who Batman is, as long as he gets to keep playing his game.
neither really added much to the characters though, also Thoms Wayne Jr. first appeared in Worlds Finest way back when Worlds Finest was a thing, Grant Morrison revived the character (he does love his obscure DC references) for Earth 2 in an alternate reality in which Bruce and Martha Died and Thomas Jr. went insane and became Owl man, a costumed supervillain

I'm just going to call him Owl Man in the regular universe too, because Snyder never gave him a name.
That's basically who he is anyways, also I can't think of Owl-Man without thinking of the awesome direct to DVD animated film "Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths" which was partially based on Morrison's Earth 2 and featured this scene:
Yeah! I have that movie!
@Chaos @Cameron: I'm going to have to get it now. XD
My pull list
Vocatus atque non vocatus deus aderit.
So apparently Wonder-Con is a thing...
And so is "Superior Spider-Week"
We have more info on Infinity now. marvel.com/.../welcome_to_marvels_infinity
I wonder if the events in New Avengers regarding the Infinity Gems are going to get referenced (considering that it involves Thanos and Black Bolt, and is written by Hickman, probably).
Peaceful Days died, Let's Survive
Yeah, and Thanos Rising #1 comes out this week, so that is probably something you'd wanna pick up if you're actually invested in the event.
There's a both lengthy and interesting interview with Paul Jenkins about his decision to exclusively work for BOOM! studios and the editorial crap over at DC here.
Well, that was a depressing read. No wonder he ditched the big two.
I dunno about depressing, its simply a dose of reality, marvel and DC are part of corporations, and corporations often run on a bottom line mentality, its a good thing that Jenkins got all that off his chest and did it in a professional manner, change can only come about if people are informed
@Gaming Warthog @Chaos: It is indeed sad but I'm glad he's found a place he feels comfortable enough with that he can really create stuff he cares about. He's far more likely to put out good stuff with a great work environment. Sadly, it also reminds us that the Big Two are indeed businesses that care about the bottom line. That's how big businesses roll. :/ Sadly, it also reminds us that a company, no matter how small, is exempt from this kind of behavior. On a selfish, personal note this further justifies my not liking the New 52. XD
Yeah, DC really needs to get their editorial crap straight, it's annoying. At least don't mess with creative choices, it's why half their writers quit.
