Check out the All-New ANTiFanboy Podcast
Back in 2006, a group of angry young comic book nerds started a podcast with the focus of highlighting which comics that released that week were the must-read books but as the show grew in popular, it expanded into a show about video games, movies, television, comics, and everything else in between. Just remember one thing: We don't talk. We argue!

Stupid Parts

  • The federal government’s flaky logic behind taking over Wayne eEnterprises

Paraphrase of The Week

Feds: We’re taking control of Wayne Enterprises because you’re not doing a good job of stopping Batman’s Wayne Enterprise caches from blowing up.
Wayne Ent. : What’s stopping anybody from doing anything? The location of the caches are in the newspaper. Go stop it right now if that’s what you want to accomplish.

This is from last issue. This isn't a difficult concept to grasp people. If you're a normal person and you hear these places are blowing up, stay away from them.  If you feel that it is in your job description to save people, make sure no one goes there to blow it up!

Important Parts

  • Batman and Hush have a probably-final fight, Batman wins
  • Wayne Enterprises and all of Bruce’s stuff has been taken over by the federal government because of don’t think about it too much
  • Batman finds out that Hush was one of the people invited to Gotham to ruin his life, and he’s totally shocked he’s not the super duper mastermind.  WHO IS IT?
Brother-like dude taking off his trenchcoat to have a final hand to hand battle with you and also having explosives set just in case?  This is Metal Gear solid all over again except there's no damsel in distress.
