The mastermind plotting against Batman is revealed, but his plans go deeper than his foe could imagine.
Harley gets knocked the FUCK out, but also meets a new friend, so it's all good!
Batman doesn't know who Batman is and Superman doesn't know who Superman is... annnd go!
With the inclusion of The Phantasm, you knew someone had to die.
Everyone always knew DC comics would bring about the end of all existence.

Futures End month... Ugh. Not really looking forward to it as a whole... The Grayson and Harley Quinn issues could be cool, but everything else? Eeeeeh. That said, because I'm less than enthused towards DC's next New 52 anniversary event, and given how borderline pointless the last couple were, I won't be doing full write ups of each FE issue. Instead of full write ups, I'll be doing something like my Stack Rundown posts, and just have one post with some quick thoughts/spoilers of each FE issue I bother with from week to week. Batman Eternal will continue to get full write-ups.
- Batman Eternal #22: The Architect! Remember him? He's from Gates of Gotham, which Kyle Higgins wrote, and look at that! Kyle Higgins joins Eternal.
- Grayson: Futures End #1: Grayson goes to Mother Russia... for some reason.
- Detective Comics: Futures End #1: Batman and Riddler team up... for some reason.

I've been saying this is who this is for a good while now, just kicking myself for not getting around to the "let's look at the evidence" post. Whatever, this is why you should follow me on Twitter, or read every dumb post I make on message boards arguing against people who aren't using logic or clues... No wait, don't do that, those are terrible.
Spoilers after the jump.
This book has got a long climb up "Give a Shit Mountain" for me. At first, this arc sounded cool and interesting, but then the long and plentiful delays started happening (anyone who thinks we're getting two issues in October, both illustrated by Jae Lee is a fool), and then when issue #12 came out, this arc was revealed to be a amnesia arc, which is another "ugh," in my book. A bigger problem for me? This book hardly feels like it matters or is in continuity, which is exactly why I never cared about the pre-New 52 Superman/Batman, because it was just that, not in continuity after a certain point.
So yeah... this issue is going to have to do something special for me to keep reading.
A tip for the preview, the gallery is super small, because... for some reason some websites think that's acceptable to display a preview like that with no obvious way of enlarging the images. Just right click and open the image in a new tab, you should get a readable image out of that.
