And now for some scans of Batman getting beat up by a girl
« on: June 09, 2017, 07:42:50 AM »
All from the recent "League of Shadows" storyline in Detective Comics. Also in this thread: Batman gets his mind raped repeatedly again (guy must be asking for it at this point, right?), Cassandra Cain goes to Orthanc, and Ra's al Ghul reveals he can now talk backwards a little bit, although he had to get a teacher first.

But mostly it's about the latest Gotham MA power rankings, really. As most things are.


Detective 950:

The world is full of fragile, fragile people. People like Batman, basically:
       

Detective 951:

Subtlety really is wasted on bimonthlies:
       

-"You ever think about what would happen if you had to fight her, for real? Not sparring. The real deal."

-"Of course I have. I'd lose."


Detective 952:

Probably one of the more interesting scenes in this thing, really. It's Ra's al Ghul having a brief sit-down with Shiva in the midst of ongoing hostilities. It's alright:
       

Shiva vs. Cassandra Cain, round one:
               

Poor form all around, really. Maybe Batman will do better:
       
(But no, he gets Camel Clutched)

Finally, some confirmation Shiva may be hurting people:
   


Detective 953:

Teenagers are the worst:
       

Some more Shiva vs. Orphan:
           

Detective 954:

Shiva isn't the only one who's been secretly pulling her punches. Ra's al Ghul has had Bruce Wayne hooked on phonics on the down-low for years:
                   

He also makes, or has access to, the most wonderful drugs:
       


Elsewhere, Kathy Kane's father is getting ready to mansplain some basic facts of life to his scrubs:
   

-"There are probably around two hundred of them in that complex right now -- the most dangerous fighters ever to live on this planet.

Fanatics from every corner of the world, ready to die to serve their master. You could fight one of them and win, maybe even a handful at a time... but fighting all of them... all at once...

Batman couldn't do it. My daughter couldn't do it. You couldn't do it.

Who the hell do you think could?"


Which naturally means coming up next, it's House of Super Dead Ninjas:

Detective 955:

Picking up where we've left off:
               

   

               

As you might have gathered if you've actually clicked through all that, this is all two hours after ostensibly being left to die by Shiva for the second time that night. Which doesn't necessarily mean all that much here, really. Cassandra Cain might well have still been one of the least brutalized members of the Bat-Fam at this particular point in time.

This may also be the place to mention Orphan's basically the Phantom of the Opera now.


Meanwhile, Batman gets some slightly baffling lip-service in-between two highly unflattering outings. Bruce Wayne really can match anything Nightwing brings to the table:


And now it really is time for one final confrontation:
       


Detective 956:

But before her daughter can finally drop some mental blocks, there's still time for Shiva vs. the entire Bat-clan for a minute:
           

Some confirmation this really was just about the entire League of Shadows, if you needed it:


           

There could only ever be one true MVP to this arc, though:
   

So once again the day is saved, thanks to Gotham City's darkest Dark Defender.
But Batman isn't happy with this latest shift to status quo. He wants to get proactive now:

[Reserved for some various other odds and ends from this arc that I already have uploaded. Mostly some general League of Shadow stuff, which in turn is mostly pretty dull.

It'll probably have to wait until after this weekend now, though.]

Cassie >>> Bruce
Cassie >>> Dick

Seems legit.
