This is SilvaNoir from deviantart (and other sites), from Massachusetts in real life.

This is a blog full of my thoughts and feelings on COMIC BOOKS, anime, movies, TV, fandom, nostalgia, ART, my (fan)art, shipping, etc.

TYPOS: I type terribly. I only notice them after a post has been reblogged a few times. And then I fix it. After it's too late.

BATMAN # 18 (spoilers)

I WISH I HAD NEVER BOUGHT AND READ THIS ISSUE.  I AM INCREDIBLE HULK LEVELS OF ANGRY

Harper Row has been following Batman for a few months.   Noticing he’s taking increasing risks due to grief!  It’s time for A LONELY PLACE OF DYING  “Requiem”

"Give you a CAR and a cape and let you fight by my side?"  A car called the redbird maybe?  oh wait, no, that’s now one of Damian’s alternate costumes. 

Oh, but there’s more!  Her dad’s a scummy low-level criminal in Blackgate and she’s a poor girl.  She sasses Batman to his face while he criticizes her lack of training.  Hmmmm.  That sounds familiar.  I think there was another girl like that…

AND she doesn’t care who is wearing the Batman cape, but does care about THE SYMBOL.  The symbol she is loyal to and inspired by.  That ALSO sounds like a different girl, one who also wore all black.

YOU REALLY THINK MAKING DAMIAN’S DEATH INTO BASICALLY JASON TODD 2.0 AND THEN GIVING LITTLE BITS OF STEPH, CASS, AND TIM’S STORIES TO THIS GIRL WILL MAKE UP FOR THOSE CHARACTERS’ LOSS/CHANGES? 

Harper could have been a cool character.  She could have been Batman’s tech girl, inventing new gadgets for him and help keep the city running/improve security.  He could have offered her a job with Waynetech R&D and worked with Lucius Fox.  Instead, they had to have a death and retread bits and pieces of previous continuity, but now with dyed hair, a gay brother who needs her protection, and mentions of Supernatural (What were they thinking?  That girls on tumblr love Supernaturual, that will make them happy right???)

GOODBYE MAIN DCnU BATMAN TITLE, I AM DONE WITH YOU
