What do you think of these two new additions to Batman's mythos?

They are just Superman and Supergirl pranking Batman.

They are bland and they are not going to last, I think that they only serve to drive a point.

Yes but before that Batman should bang Gotham Girl. Seriously King make hit happen, I'm sure we all have a Batman x Supergirl shipper in us, this is the only way.

I think they look cool but their jobbing so Batman looks superior by comparison is annoying.

How did Batman stealth past their superhuman senses? How does he keep doing that with ninja skills on aliens that can see through walls and read minds?

The issue provided the answer, HE'S BATMAN.

King should've gave them better names but apart from that they are actually interesting characters, more or less. We still have to see more of them and how they'll develop and who they actually are but I trust King.

@entropy_aegis: The only way.

I am completely serious. Let us see a new ship blossom.

THE ONLY WAY.

I don't know man I never really considered it before. I thought Kara didn't like Bruce all that much, beside she's like 15 years younger than him. Also, what happened to that OP Kryptonian device that Kara sold to Bruce, that can supposedly re-write human DNA ? You'd think something like that would've come in handy since then.

They have a weird choice of names and probably won't survive long.

Doubt either character sticks around for the long haul, but it's nice to see Batman meeting new heroes who show him the respect he deserves, even though he's got no powers and they do. Interested to see how the story unfolds.

Dumbest part of the issue by far.

They are bland and forgettable (Like the first two issues of King's Batman)

I think they're really well designed, but not much is known about them yet. Give it time.

Not keen on the names. Hopefully they have a greater meaning in the long run. There had better be a good reason for calling the dude Gotham because...well... Gotham is a city.

This made me laugh.

I think they are going to die or be around for Kings entire run.

I will confess I only read issue #1 before jumping ship on this crap, but they seemed like a stupid and unnecessary move. Batman doesn't need to have super-powered people running around his city. There are enough other books from DC featuring heroes with amazing powers beyond any possible imagination.

Batman should be a place to go for stories about a non-powered hero fighting menaces to his city.

(But, that's just me.)

Like others have said, bland and uninteresting characters. Wouldn't be surprised if we never saw them again after this whole Gotham Girl saga is over.

But insanity / mind and emotion control can cause many people to do things they couldn't / shouldn't normally be doing. Without the Psycho Pirate's influence, would the fight with the JL have turned out the same?

@commissar: well they wouldn't off fought in the first place but from how there powers worked if it was the other way around an the league was controlled an about to destroy the world I believe he could do the same to them by sacrificing all his life force

I thought they were dumb. So you mean to tell me that just from an experiment that you could have beings more powerful than superman?!?! Give me a break. Dumbest concept in DC in a long time

Lame.

You're going to tell me that Gotham can solo the JL. Looooooooooool.

And what kinda name is that, I can't even...

"Gotham" and "Gotham girl"

I can't believe Batman main title is terrible, since it's written by a boss writer Tom King (Vision, Grayson, etc)

Guess Batman just doesn't suit him.

They stink, realistically, the way their powers work, they should be dead really soon. Not sure if I'll finish this story.
