Mix-Mash

Okay. So apparently reading Final Crisis #6 right before going to bed leads to a crazy mix-mash of dreams/nightmares. Considering Final Crisis #6 reads like a crazy mix-mash of dreams/nightmares, this shouldn't be shocking.

(Seriously. When one of the moments used to slow the pace of a book involves the three Flashes, something's gone weird.)

This brings to mind a comment made by one of the guys who works the counter at my comic store a few weeks back, when he realized that Morrison was behind both Batman RIP and Final Crisis: "What, did DiDio just hand the keys to the DC Universe over to a crazy Scottsman and say, 'Here, have fun, and don't worry about scuffing it up'?" My answer (after a Google session confirmed that Morrison is, indeed, from Scottland and not England) was, "That's about what it looks like."

In other news. That Batman: Battle for the Cowl ad at the end. Well, you guys know what portion of it has this little fangirl excited. The thing is, in those style ads, supposedly just about everything is a clue, from where the characters are standing to what each character is looking at to everything else, and the fact that his raised hand covers the good part of his face is a bad omen. I can not even guess what most of the other stuff means, although I'm pretty sure the Batman-with-guns is Deadshot, especially when you consider that he once tried to set himself up as a Batman-replacement.



Edit: Poking around the interwebs, it looks like just about everyone but me seems to htink Batman-with-guns is Jason Todd (except for the ones who think he was the Demon Bat). The two more generic looking Batmen are probably Tim Drake and Dick Grayson.

So why does Tim Drake have a cloth tied to Dick's leg?*

...also, what's up with the hand that is sticking out from a Wayne Enterprises crate?

I'm amused that Two-Face Batman has Superman colours on the 'good' side. And is Alfred suddenly a french secret agent or something?

*I am going to at least ask nicely that anyone who answers this without entering into slash-extrapolation mode. I'm not interested.

That's not Tim Drake. Tim Drake is (probably) the Batman with the Staff.

That's not Dick. Dick is (probably) the middle Batman, nearest Alfred.

The cloth is thought to represent Hush's bandages. Hush recently underwent plastic surgery to make himself look like Bruce Wayne. Therefore, that guy is probably Hush. The kid is probably Damian. Why Damian is holding onto Hush's symbolic cloth, I don't know - some have suggested that Damian will end up manipulating him before the storyline is over.

Look very close in the background behind Hush and Damian: a wheel from Oracle's chair.

I don't know what's up with the arm, and no one else seems to know, either.

I hadn't made the 'Superman colors' conclusion, but that is kind of neat!

Also, did you notice that the giant penny is now scarred! That's kinda cool!

ALSO Also: It's a shame they went for "I am Batman" and not "I'm Batman." Just sayin'.
