>>95785315>Joker actually being funny for once in his goddamn life
His Joker was entertaining enough, sure, but I don't know why you need to act like King is the first person to ever write Joker well. Try not to be such a retard.>Riddler being competent and not a joke villain like he is 90% of the time (even in Zero year he was terrible)
A competent Riddler? No, he was something else entirely. More akin to an extremely charismatic bare-knuckle-brawling ganglord...he's such a farcry from "Riddler" it's almost unbelievable.>Fun use of villains King hasn't been utilizing in his run so far
Did we read the same story? Having villains like Two-Face, Freeze, Poison Ivy, etc. mindlessly towing in line like literal lackeys for Riddler and Joker isn't exactly what I'd call a good use of the characters. Not to mention most of them didn't even get so much as a panel to themselves and their presence amounted to nothing.>Kite Man's story was awesome and fuck anyone who didn't like it
It was overwrought heartstring manipulation that shot down any idea that King tried to put forth about Bruce being a hero of any kind. It wasted two issues on a one-off meme character meanwhile the entire big event of the "War" was relegated to background noise.>Joker stopping Batman from murdering Riddler and laughing at the absurdity of the entire situation is a 10/10 Joker moment
It's pretty good Joker stuff. It makes sense and I won't deride King for it.
But nothing you listed makes up for all the garbage that's so omnipresent throughout this entire waste of a Poser-traced arc.
