Annoying. This just isn’t what I wanted “The Button” to be at all. I thought we were finally getting the Watchmen blended with the DC Universe proper. Apparently that’ll happen later. In some other comics. But here? I mean beyond the little smiley face button?
This story just feels like Batman x Flashpoint.
There was one cool moment – spoilers incoming – where Bruce gets to meet his dad who is a Batman in his own alternate timeline. What was cool was that as they parted ways, Doctor Wayne tells his son not to be Batman anymore. It’s at least interesting to see if anything comes from that in later issues of the main series.
But yeah, ultimately this short mini-series has turned into a huge disappointment for me.
