Since 2006, DC Batman The series was the place for the company’s biggest writers to make their biggest swing — to write Batman storyIt’s not just about Batman. From Grant Morrison to Scott Snyder, Tom King and James Tinion IV, Cowl was handed over to writer and artist Chips Darsky. Chips Darsky has opened up a new era in collaboration with artist Jorge Jimenez.
Co-author Sex offender And like a cartoon writer daredevil, Howard the DuckWhen JugheadZudaski has his first six problems BatmanArk titled “Fail Safe” It’s just the beginning.. And in May of this year, Polygon emailed Zdarsky about everything that came with the beginning: the abandoned seat of Batman’s power, a mysterious new villain coming from Batcave itself.
[Ed. note: This article contains spoilers for Batman #125.]
Failsafe will not appear in this first issue until the classic final page is revealed. However, the opening scene set at some point in the past gives some hints about their origin. In this scene, quiet Alfred notices a strange beep and red light behind Batcave. The last page returns to the present and the dusty and shuttered Batcave. There, the dung beep sound is recurring.
Black and red obelisks rise from the ground and open, revealing the shape of a robot’s humanoid with a menacing reflective faceplate, as a computerized voice ominously declares “fail-safe online.” increase.
In the first announcement of his run, Zudaski describes Failsafe as “the end of Batman” and refers to an alien monster editorial designed to kill Superman. Death of Superman.. It’s … pretty vague and valid for the announcement. But now that I’ve seen failsafe for the first time, it raises the question: what does “the end of Batman” mean?
“I’m taking off my hat on Batman’s original” Doomsday “Bain, which I love,” Zudaski replied. Death of SupermanModern series, Nightfall.. “But Jorge and I are fail-safe aiming for a cold, unstoppable villain. Something fast, intense and extraordinary. They have something to do with Batman’s past and they kill Batman. I am very dedicated to my mission. ”
The writer wrote his previous contribution to the norms of Batman’s villains, Chia-a villain who killed and incapacitated victims with drugs that put them in an addictive euphoric state- “feels like the classic style of Batman’s villains.” “. Failsafe is not. ”
As for why failsafes are appearing in the empty defenseless Batcave, it has its roots in Zudaski’s pre-employment events.During James Tinion IV Joker war Ark, Joker stole all of Bruce Wayne’s money — and Catwoman stole it, but for good reason, couldn’t return it. Since then, Batman is still rich, Mega rich.. He had to fasten his bat belt, move from Wayne Manor to Gotham Brownstone, and replace the Batcave with a series of mini caves in his own Gotham utility tunnel.
And fail-safe Batman # 125 villain coin, money is on the other side. The dying penguin is angry that his large amount of Rukuru was not accepted by Gotham’s upper crust, and unless he immediately gives money to a charity, he will inherit all Gothams over $ 5 million. I promised to kill you. And to secure his enemies to the wall, the penguins built his own death in a way that would imply Batman as his murderer.
According to Zudaski, it’s no coincidence that Batman’s cash flow is at the heart of the problem.
“I don’t want to give it too much, but it’s definitely one of the themes. [of the arc]!! It’s part of a bigger idea of how Batman can be the best Batman and what it looks like. Is it rebuilding his wealth? Would you like to build his army? Are you focusing on Gotham? […] I like Batman’s books over the past few years that have reduced the character a bit with his Batbacks, and also kept it older. When you are a millionaire, you can fool aging more than you or I can. So how important is money to Batman? ”
But what is the relationship between penguins and failsafes? Must see.But Batman is the man who assembled the famous “failsafe” For all members of the Justice League In case they become fraudulent. It’s not easy to imagine that he would do it himself — or it would be set to be triggered after extensive media coverage that Batman committed the murder.
