Catwoman - #69
Synopsis: In Gotham City, a Bana terrorist holds a handheld radioactive device in her hand and threatens to destroy the city if nebody shoots her b/c it's rigged on a deadman's switch. :o Catwoman tells us that she's supposed to be part of the Bana and stole the dangerous part of the device for them. She tried to stop them but things didn't go according to plan. She jumps out at lashes her whip.
We back up a week, and Catwoman is watching the news with her child thinking about how she had to give up her life. The news talks about how without Batman, the hero forces are disorganized. >.>;;
Holly checks on Karon in the hospital and then flies away. XD
Catwoman goes to check on her kid when she sees Batman holding her. Batman recruits her to infiltrate the Bana and promises to keep Helena safe.
Catwoman breaks into a jewellry store and gets the Bana's attention and they approach her to join. She breaks into STAR labs and steals the device. She tries to take the radioactive part out and hide it but the Bana catch her and shoot her with a dart. >.>
She wakes up and they inform her that they want her to witness the destruction of Gotham City. >.> She beats them up and whips the Bana holding the bomb but she let's go of the switch and Gotham City is destroyed, everybody dead, including Batman!
Actually it's too be continued.
OMG IS GOTHAM CITY GONNA BE KILLED?
I dun even know the point of cliffhangers like this nemore. :\ Cliffhangers still DO work, but they at least need a "what's going to happen" type of question at the end, rather than a "will the city get destroyed or not?" question. >.>
To me, and I'm sure a lot of other readers unfamiliar with the Bana, it's like they just appeared and everybody's talking about them in a way that suggests that they know them well but yet vague enuf that the rest of us dunno what's going on. :\
It's like not being allowed in on a joke. >:|
And that's a feeling that you dun want your readers or your fans to have. :(
No matter how much I keep not wanting it to be this way, Amazons Attack keeps appearing to be an anti-feminist rant. :\ Or at the very least "extremist feminism is bad!"
I thought Catwoman was skilled. :O How did she get caught so easily? And why isn't Batman around to help her? :o
I love how the news says that once Batman left the JLA is totally discombobulated and confused! XD So much for Black Canary being the leader. :\ It's not like all of the heroes are n00bs or nething! They KNOW how to operate as a team without Batman!
And considering how Hippolyta's only orders seem to be "KILL PUSSYCAT KILL!!!", how exactly are the heroes being outmaneuvred? >.>
I love how the Bana realize that Catwoman's a traitor (in the issue that she joined them too!) and knock her out, but dun tie her up, or take any precautions around her even tho they've spent weeks watching her (apparently) and therefore should know how fast she can move, or how strong she is. :o
What WAS the point in having Catwoman infiltrate them if she's not there to learn nething? All it seems is that she needs to steal a weapon for them to use, that they would never have been able to obtain if she didn't do it for them.
Great plan Batman.
I have this annoying feeling that the bomb will be a dud and the Bana were "testing" her or something and by some bizarre fluke of writing, she passed. Or she swapped the radioactive thing with a fake radioactive thing. Considering the device is supposed to be able to spread radioactivity across a half mile and she took out the radiocative core, wouldn't it KILL HER!? My job is working with radiation (doing safety tests for medical labs) so to me this is such a stupid thing for her to do XD
I dun care. Amazons Attack is dead to me now.
I love how Holly jumps off the building after visiting Karon but there's nothing visibly nearby for her to land on. XD It looks like she just flew off :O
Neways, I can't wait until DC's summer o' crossovers is over. >:|
Oh! I love how at comicon when interviewed, Didio said that ALL of the Countdown Crossovers are INTEGRAL to the plot and therefore you HAVE to get ALL of them. >:|
Angelwings Rating: 2 stupid Catwomen out of 5 stupid Bana :(
Recommendation: This isn't a Catwoman issue, it's an Amazons Attack issue. :\ If you like Amazons Attack, you might want to get it to see more about the Bana, otherwise.. no >:|
