@nightfang3: If I want to read the rest of the DC universe I'd read the rest of the DC universe not Batman.

Not even sure what you guys are excited about, the books dealing with the main Rebirth story like Batman, Flash, Action and Titans are by far the weakest of their current line up. Moreover who cares? everyone and their grandma knows who the Watchmen are, there's no mystery for the fans. For the chracters in question there is no stake. If it were Wally and Dick then it was justified but Bruce has no business being in this story. This is a literal case of using Batman because he's Batman. Finally the Watchmen aint Star Wars they're not going to bring legions of fanboys rushing to the stores, the silliness has already played out.

@2cool4fun: Since when? The Snyder era crossovers were actually relevant to Batman, JL vs SS and this button are not. Even Monster Men was used for the benefit of Batwoman.They can start their mystery in JL and spare us Batman fans these worthless storylines. Batman has no stake in this Rebirth storyline and the book does not need a sales boost. This decision is not justified on any level. Batman has become this years Truth.

Batman vs Bane, the greatest fight in the history of Gotham, one will live while the other will die and then in 2 weeks return for the button.... Kings Batman just took fail to a whole new level. At the very least they could have held back for 2 issues but nope have a button folks. This is what the main Batman book has been reduced to, a worthless crossover machine. The only thing this book has accomplished is create 3 crossovers in less than a year.More importantly why not just tell this story in JL? Batman has no stake in this moronic button, this isn't like Superman or Flash at all. No wonder Kings book sucks, he's just killing time and pages, his own stories are worthless filler period.

I have a question, how long will the "I got kicked out of the military because I'm gay" origin last? it will become dated sooner or later.

Secondly another evil organization? like seriously, hats off to Tynion and lol at another mysterious and murky past catching up with the protagonist approach to story telling. I'll get the book for Epting's art but I honestly dont think this creative team is good for the long run.

Damn, Apollo really has been Neron's b!tch throughout this series. Mawzir vs Midnighter looks gold.

I'll freely admit that I've never been a big fan of Snyder's Batman. His writing style particularly his use of metaphors and horror style villains never appealed to me and I found his Batman too emotional and easily manipulated aka too dumb but All Star has been a really good book and I think it is his best work on the character. The next arc sounds even better.

This event is nothing special but come on there's no PIS here so far and the writer isn't going to write fights the way fans demand they be written. By that logic almost every Flash fight is PIS because 90% of his rogues are no match for him, same largely applies to Superman.

Most Flash fights I've seen at least in regards to the New52 in his title have some validity to them. It's either protecting people gets him harmed, facing Speedsters or people who've already prepped for him.

But it's still the same thing, unless the SS start kicking some ass we should hold those PIS horses. Also this Enchantress took on the JL by herself in the first issue of JLD and obviously this event isn't really about JL vs SS. The SS fight will merely fill some pages before Lord and his group make their movie, it's acceptable imo, really it could have been far worse. If King/Loeb was writing it you can bet Croc would have decked Arthur. The preview and the previous issue make it quite clear that the SS is no match for JL, look at Frosts dialogue, look at Simon Baz's dialogue from the previous issue and more importantly look at what Waller is saying. This isn't a fight, it's a cat and mouse chase.

I just hope we get a decent Batman vs Deadshot encounter, even from this preview here that particular fight is far more more exciting.
