In DC Comics’ Batman #93, the Joker stole all of Batman’s money

It’s just been a couple of weeks because we found out that the Joker’s ultimate plan to do away with Batman permanently is to take all of his money, and the Clown Prince of Crime has already done the deed. By the end of week’s Batman #93, with some help from his new Second, Punchline, the Joker is the world’s most recent billionaire.

How does the Joker even know that Batman has money? Well, aside from the apparent, this summer season’s Joker War crossover rests on the concept that the Joker understands that Batman is privately the billionaire Bruce Wayne, that Nightwing is former circus acrobat Penis Grayson, that Batgirl is truly Commissioner Gordon’s daughter, and so on and so on. It’s already a difficult time for the Bat-Family, and now the Joker has all the resources and technology of Wayne Enterprises at his fingertips.

What else is occurring in the pages of our favorite comics? We’ll tell you. Invite to Polygon’s weekly list of the books that our comics editor enjoyed this past week. It’s part society pages of superhero lives, part reading suggestions, part “look at this cool art.” There may be some spoilers. There may not suffice context. Read this if you missed out on the last one.

Batman #93

The Joker laughs and laughs as a man tells him that he is now worth over one hundred billion dollars, in Batman #93, DC Comics (2020).

The tag here, “Joker’s Billions” is a recommendation to The Joker’s Millions, a silver age comic story so good they made a whole episode of Batman the Animated Series about it. I do not have anything to add, I just value a good comics history pun.

Avengers Empyre # 0

The celestial messiah Sequoia speaks to the Avengers on the Blue Area of the moon, and Iron Man finds it oddly soothing, in Avengers Empyre #0, Marvel Comics (2020).

Marvel’s postponed summer season event is lastly making its way to stands, with Avengers: Empyre # 0. Al Ewing condenses a lot of strange Marvel tradition in this one and Pepe Larraz makes it all look stunning, however the result is: The Kree and the Skrulls are teaming up, something strange is occurring in the Blue Area of the moon, and Iron Guy is feeling strangely protective about all of it. Maybe … unnaturally so.

Die #11

Struggling with the strain of leadership and his decisions, Ash (in the red dress) seeks comfort from the undead Sol, in Die #11, Image Comics (2020).

Speaking of comics back from the infection hiatus, Die is back, and everybody’s emotion is just becoming worse. We’re best on track for a Kieron Gillen comic, truly.

Green Lantern 80 th Anniversary 100- Page Super Incredible

Green Lantern Jessica Cruz leaps to action in her kitchen, tossing a knife into the sink. Meanwhile, her anxiety tells her that the mission failed because that kitchen knife was the last thing she touched before she left, in Green Lantern 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular, DC Comics (2020).

There were a lot of good stories in the Green Lantern 80 th Anniversary special, consisting of the late Denny O’Neil’s final story for DC, however I believe my favorite was Mariko Tamaki and Mirka Andolfo’s piece on Jessica Cruz. Cruz is amongst the newer Green Lanterns of Earth, and the entire hook of her character is how she can still be a Green Lantern– beings renowned for their decision and absence of fear– when she has a hard time with serious stress and anxiety.

Suicide Squad # 6

Deadshots former Suicide Squad coworkers have stolen the Batmobile. “You... uh...” he says to Batman, “You want me to call you an Uber?” in Sucide Squad #6, DC Comics (2020).

I had a hard time to pick one part of today’s Suicide Squad tofeature The part where they embrace a young puppy? The part where Deadshot stops a Batman punch by putting the pup in front of his face? The part where Deadshot gives up the squad? I settled for this one, despite the fact that right after this Batman retorts “You want me to call you an ambulance?”

John Constantine: Hellblazer # 7

“D’you think it hurts?” John Constantine asks a London fishmonger about his filleted wares. “I read they... they don’t feel nothin’,” the man responds. “It’s the ice. They sort of — go all slow. All numb.” in John Constantine: Hellblazer #7, DC Comics (2020).

Simon Spurrier and Aaron Campbell tell a grisly little horror story in the first part of this story, however it was the pledge of revenge at the end that kept me on the hook, pun quite meant.
