Yeah I agree with you he shouldn't, it's just different for the sake of being different and although I wished they'd gone with the father/ son angle I still would have hated it had they done that but at least it would have fit better with what they were going with (Just to iterate: Still garbage). We've got "Death of the Family" coming up in a couple months so maybe something happens that makes him revert back but I doubt it.
Speaking of DotF what do you think of that? I'm really liking what I've seen from the covers and it's left me intrigued. If you look Joker has got his face strapped on kind of like something from SAW so I'm kind of interested to see how far they go with that, wonder if they'll give him a similar setup to “The Killing Joke” where he's got that funhouse with all the traps.
However it turns out I hope it has lasting consequence this time unlike Dr Arkham who can’t decide if he’s Black Mask or just plain old Dr Arkham in the new continuity.
