And we finally have an ending to this whole Flashpoint Batman crap. Shame though, he really started out as someone awesome and badass. I still don’t get why he broke bad and suddenly started torturing his son in order for him to stop being Batman. I mean, was that the only way to convince your son? Heck, given Thomas Wayne’s insane power levels here, he did beat up the entire Bat family on his own, he could have just helped his son war against crime. That would been productive at the very least, and kept his son a bit safer than the usual.
How did he get beaten by Batman? Catwoman pretended to be under the Psycho Pirate’s control, and kicks him from behind, almost too similar to how Batman and Catwoman defeated Bane before. Then, when Flashpoint Batman managed to recover and hold his son at gunpoint, he lets Batman go free after hearing a lame sob story about his vow against crime. Pathetic.

One thought on “Batman Defeats Flashpoint Batman”
This whole arc was so many kinds of Bullshit. Especially with Thomas being able to beat the whole Batfamily himself. I mean, who wrote this shit? Batman has already admitted multiple times Cassandra Cain is a better fighter than him. Batwoman is certainly better than Catwoman. Plus they had Damian, Tim, Barbara, Helena, and Duck there, plus they had caught him unprepared. And old, alcoholic man near 70 who only started learning to fight around 20 years ago – and not nearly at the same level and discipline as Bruce did. So how the fuck did Bruce and Catwoman beat him when just Cassandra by herself should have beaten him easily?
Like I said… BULLSHIT!!!
