    I guess Victor and the recently resurrected Nora made up for lost time.

    I find it best to Freeze in Schwarzenegger's voice here.

    He's angry he has to be in such a shitty, worthless comic.

    So why Freeze's kids are mutated like him? I don't think his condition is genetic. Did he experiment upon his own kids? Is this for real or just Bruce's dream? Why I've no desire to ever get anywhere close to reading the Joker War or Death Metal? Why is water wet?

    It's part of Batman's Dream/Nightmare; this occurs while he's unconscious.

    I'll still take it over their other recent event attempts. It at least leans into the fact that it's a comic book and revels in absurdity with things like the Batmobeast and Wonder Woman's invisible chainsaw. Compared to the agonizing pretension and glacial pace of a Doomsday Clock or the attempted veneer of meaningfulness of a Heroes in Crisis it's refreshing.

    If this was unconnected to Injustice I'd maybe check it out but have no interest in seeing more of that universe or Taylor writing Superman or Wonder Woman. Joker stated to be the central villain of it is also a turnoff.

    It’s over-the-top and meta nature are part of why I like it. Sets it apart from its contemporary events.

    It's refreshing in the same way early Image was refreshing, in that the art is pretty much the only focus, serving a vapid and meaningless story with nothing characters that attempts or accomplishes nothing.

    Honestly. the more I look at this Death Metal stuff the more it comes off as just giving McFarlane more ideas for Batman toys to make giving how much his DC line is already dominated by the Batmen from the first Metal.

    It's fuelled by Capullo, McFarlane-esque should be expected

    Batman: Artist Jason Fabok Reveals the Names of DC's Three Jokers

    "The biggest one that we did was with the Golden Age Joker, we called him 'the Criminal Joker.' And he's the one that doesn't really smile. And that kind of goes back to Batman #1 in 1940, where there are these creepy panels where he's not smiling and then there are creepy panels with big grins and whatnot," Fabok explained in an interview with Games Radar. "We chose to really lock in on the not smiling part, and it's so much creepier. It's a cold calculating version of the Joker and he's a criminal mastermind. It's just a very different feeling to the Joker."

    "Then we have 'the Clownish Joker' as we call him. He's like the classic Joker from the '40s and '50s, and so everything with him is brighter, louder, and a lot cornier -- like the big gags that would happen in the '50s comic books, those kinds of things that were a lot of fun," Fabok continued. "Then you have your modern age Joker, who we call 'the Comedian Joker.' He's The Killing Joke Joker. He's very psychotic and just evil. He's always smiling and cackling. I played up a lot on that with the way that Brian Bolland drew him in those classic books."

    "Each one is its own thing. Yet, each one also feels like they're part of the other versions of the Joker," Fabok teased. "That's what makes the mystery a little bit more fun."

    Yeah, that's the real Joker. Not the bullshit we've had since.
