New 52 Batman Timeline
In case you were also wondering how the fuck things fit together in the New 52.
Ahh yes, so Jason will forevermore be known in the New 52 as the Robin who was “quickly benched” because he did a terrible job as Batman’s sidekick and then ridiculously fell for one of Joker’s “traps”, rather than a lively, skilled, compassionate Robin who, by pure coincidence, encountered the Joker during a search for his birth mother and sacrificed his life in an attempt to save what he thought was an innocent woman. Just wonderful.
Is it just me, or does none of this make any fucking sense?
Also: Chip in her brain. You can’t cure someone’s fucking spinal cord being damaged by fucking with their brain. That’s like trying to fix a broken starter cord by upgrading the engine. Not the fucking problem, genius.
New 52: So New Reader Friendly you need a guide for the Batman timeline. Flashpoint was only two years ago.
And this is just the Batman one.
I agree with many of these comments. Some less so, and largely think the main Batman book is the only one of the DC titles that’s mostly untouched by editorial and is a great read.
But yeah, some of these things don’t make sense, and the accelerated timeline doesn’t entirely work.
