  1. I was just a kid at the time, about 8 years old, and it blew my mind. Then when Jean-Paul took over, and his suit kept evolving into more and more of an Azrael suit than a Batman suit, it was incredible. It was a really cool time to be a kid reading comics. I know a lot of adults at the time or even looking back now are kind of jaded by a lot of the happenings in early/mid 90s comics, but it was great to be a kid back then. So much going on.

  2. I remember it being devastating. I was young but it had the feeling of something monumental. I’d read a lot of comics and no one ever seemed to really get hurt.

    This changed everything, I never thought oh he’ll be back in a year or a few years, this felt permanent. Like a family member getting crippled.

    These days characters die and come back to life but back then this was shocking.

    The same with Robins death, I was shook.

    Also when I read Banes origin, he wasn’t a “bad guy” he was born in a shitty situation and built himself up from nothing in the worst circumstances. I kind of admired that. So he wasn’t a classic evil supervillan type. For me it felt like everything changed.

    Azeral also had a great origin and seeing how he altered the suit, upgrading it to be more efficient. His batrang launcher was like a goddamn machine gun by the end!. It was great even though he was unstable

  3. Strange. I don’t remember feeling anything. Same when Jason was blown up. None of this stuff is permanent, and why get worked up over fictional characters? That being said, Tom King’s character assassination of Selina Kyle pisses me off.

  4. I was more impressed by how cunning and smart Bane was … He didn’t want to face Batman Head on when he is healthy

    So instead he let Batman fight most his enemies while he was sick till he was on the verge of passing out and confront him in his home while he is so weakened and tired and broke his back

    He was very impressive and scary smart …it was the first time i have seen Bane
