Batman Infinite T. 2: State of Terror, Part 1 – James (…)

Deprived of his destiny, deprived of freedom in his movement, Bruce Wayne is now, like many others, an ordinary citizen. Joining the crowd, he tries to balance his daily life, but things get complicated because the people of Gotham lose interest in the need for caution, which leads to expulsion.

From now on, the role of a militia “peacekeepers” in the salary of the new mayor Christopher Nakano, interfering in the defense of the city …

This is the second composition Batman Infinite Beginning with the origins and causes that transformed Mary Kowalski from the status of an aspiring engineer at “Helios Robotics” to “Miracle Molly”, a bloodthirsty villain who was incited to violence. Although previously conceived in her work, Beauty finds no comfort there, being caught in a macho boss who slanders her and an egocentric lover who despises her. To make matters worse, both her own mother and Matsudar’s parents are pressuring her to quit her job and become a full-time housewife.

In the face of suspicion, he very carefully follows the videos posted by Master Wise who publicly condemns society and the mold that every good citizen must fit. Awareness, a free-spirited and, above all, a decisive choice that pushes Mary to activate the mental process that joins Mr. Wise’s “Ansanity” group and dispels all memories of his previous existence …

At this point, moreover, James Tynion IV Doesn’t go through the back of the spoon, clearly demonstrates but with great frustration by a good number of citizens familiar with and experienced social terror. “The Rat Race”, as Americans call it, is a system close to “Ride or Die”, a ubiquitous and almost contagious competition, where everyone pulls a blanket beside them.

Using Mary Kowalski as a laboratory guinea pig, the author allows her to move from the shackles of an unsatisfied, depressed, and neglected woman to her chained, self-assured, and realistic woman. Not without difficulty, as his humanistic side disappears to awaken the devil in him …

Gotham, on the other hand, is repeatedly attacked by Insanity Collective, whose main executioner is none other than Squarecro, to whom we owe a debt of gas to Arkham (see Joker War) Miracle Molly and Master Wise have their way …

For BatmanAlmost no one thinks of him anymore: almost all citizens now turn their attention to the new hero “Peacekeeper-01”, very close to getting Scarcro and his minions’ hands.

But very quickly, Pecakeeper-01 will feel the horror of defeat, especially following the dose of toxin injected by Scarecrow. From then on, he will seek answers about his activities and his role as a son with his father and, like Mary Kowalski, will realize Scarcro’s ability to harm!

For the graphic part, several artists follow each other in rather unequal registers. The miracle is drawn by the first chapter about Molly Daniel Old and unorganized style. A thunderous but much more overloaded breakdown, enough to give a headache, even for the most seasoned readers. Next, Ricardo FederikiTo whom we owe excellently Sariya Next to John Dufox. Exemplary work, playing on the smallest detail, which can only be attributed to the over-indulgence of the heroes, who are very lacking in movement.

Finally, it is George Jimenez Which again puts us in full view with a nervous, precise and strong line. His board is a highly artistic flight, commanding honor. Signature color palette Tomeu More This eclectic work cannot be finished, from beginning to end.

A second installment Batman Infinite Consistent with its predecessor, namely good quality. Materials that keep you guessing, fall warnings, a reformed Gotham and a growing lonely Dark Knight.

But nothing is played! The pair of James Tyneon IV and George Jimenez work together and finally serve a recitation of great beauty!
