Man-Bat redeem himself in this issue.
Man-Bat first appear in Detective Comics #900 celebration, and it was horrible. I didn’t have much hope for this issue, and turns out I was wrong. This issue is a restart for what a mess the character has been, and it’s a tragic story.
The issue continues Man-Bat’s hunt for his wife, and it’s really a sad story. At first he is still a hero trying to protect Gotham City in Batman’s place, but that’s not the case few days later. He slowly succumbs to the the formula, and at the end, he becomes a monster just like his wife. It’s a sad story especially when Man-Bat thought he’s doing the right thing at first.
The issue doesn’t have some down moments. I’m not really a big fan of the first few pages where Man-Bat is fighting his wife, but the story picks up once it focuses on only the Man-Bat himself. Overall, this issue gives Man-Bat the respect he deserved.
