I LOVE the Azrael character but I'm not looking forward to this at all.
Cool. Hope they make him interesting. I haven't enjoyed the character since the No Man's Land crossover.
He disappeared after no man's land. The new costume looks stupid.
Oh geeze, it's like he ripped off Moon Knight and Assassin's Creed.
I miss the red and gold costume.
They won't use it because Joe Quseda designed it and they'd have to give him royalties. And Didio doesn't like him.
I've been out of the loop in comics for quite some time, is Joe Quseda that guy everyone pretty much blames for turning the Marvel universe (including Spider-Man) into a clusterfuck of ret-cons and changes so bad that they utterly have destroyed the true meaning of our beloved heroes?
what happened to Batman?
I think he went missing and is thus "presumed dead."
Don't worry kids, he'll be back.
It's written by Nicieza, that's usually a good sign. I'll pass, of course, but only because I'm not really into the Bat-books.
I'll probably get this since it ties into current bat story in some way.
So DC has a staple when Batman can't be Batman, call in Azrael.
Anyway, as for those who don't know, and yes, spoilers.
The awful, and I stress, AWFUL Batman R.I.P. story had Batman go insane. The organization that breaks down Batman mentally and physically was the Black Glove. He became the Batman of Zur-En-Arrh donning a yellow, red, and purple costume, yes purple.
Anyway, Batman eventually confronts the organization and the Joker, who is crazier than usual, split tongue and all. In the end, the League of Heroes fro ma previous Batman arc shows up to assist. Batman attacks the helicopter carrying Dr Hurt, the leader of this little story and it crashes. Batman is presumed dead but nothing is seen and it's not even a full splash page death. Apparently Batman's fate will be shown in Final Crisis.
I am very excited for this!!! I loved the Azrael series. It was so cool. Azrael is one of my favorite DC heroes. I prefer his old costume but this new one is okay. Hopefully it's Jean Paul Valley under that mask! Can't wait!
Interesting. It would be nice to see Azrael again, and his new costume is kinda neat. I'd like to see what it looks like when he's not doubled over and is standing up straight.
I'll be getting this since it's part of the Batman story for 2009.
Uh, why is he wearing sneakers with his new costume? The rest of it looks good, but the sneakers kinda throw it off.
I think his costume is kind of cool actually
I'm pretty sure there supposed to be short combat boots
i am glad to see this.
azrael has potential, much like Bats.
Please, treat this right. I miss the old costume as well. just gotta wait a while before we get to enjoy this.
