SPOILERS: Batwoman #4

This book, in terms of story, it just... it is what it is, not much to say past that.

The Spoilers: 

Kate stops Knife from blowing up the island. Knife doesn't like Kate because once she came to that island, it ruined everything she had with Safiyah. Knife gets away with the Many Arms of Death... hands? Whatever. They've got a person they're working for, probably Safiyah, I don't know. Julia decides not to rat out Kate to Batman about her working with murderers and criminals.

The Opinion: 

Vanilla. That's all I can say about this first story. Nothing is wrong with it, it's fine, but it's not noteworthy in anyway. No element from it really stands out. There's no fantastical element, no weird shit that goes down to pull me back in. Kate has some secret history, this lady doesn't like Kate, eh, that's about it. This arc has the same problem that the issues of the Rebirth Justice League book (that I read) had, you could substitute anyone into the story and it'd read the same way. There's no reason for this to be a Kate Kane Batwoman story. It'd make sense with Batman. It'd be just as generic with Batman, and that's the problem. 

Hopefully it improves, because if the next arc is as boring as this one is, then I probably won't stick around much longer.

  1. What are your thoughts on Knife as a "worthy" villain in the Batwoman rogues gallery?
