The drawings are as good as ever, but the choices are weird. Alright, this clearly wasn't modeled after the seven deadly sins. I like the red, white, and blue. I'm pretty sure it was intended to look like that. I guess obsession does fit Batman pretty well. Is that Robin as vengeance?

I don't see how Commissioner Gordon is cowardice. He's more helpful than most supporting characters in superhero comics! That would be someone more like J. Jonah Jameson. These are still nice to look at. That's what art is all about.

I KNEW Batman was one of them. The picture is still pretty good, too.

3rd and possibly best.

Vengeance: This fits Dick Grayson well, since he is even more focused on vengeance than batman, if you watch the episode of batman the animated series "Robin's Reckoning" you will see that Dick really wants the people responsible for his parents murder dead, more than Batman. And that's why he became nightwing in the first place, for vengeance.

Obsession: Batman has already overcome vengeance a long time ago, now he is more obsessed with his parents than really avenging them, so that is probably why Hans put Batman up as Obsession.

Cowardice: This, I think is sticking more closely to the animated series more than Year One. Han's response to RexHondo's review pretty much sums Jim up from the animated series. A Coward.

AlmightyHans responds:

mind you, that doesn't mean Commissioner Gordon IS a coward, it's just his biggest weakness. Thats what I mean by 'sins'. If he would ever have an arch it'd be about him overcoming his weakness. What makes the batman villains villains, is that they don't overcome their weaknesses, they savor them.

Third time, third love, keep it up man, I find the sin they represent debatable, but adore the style none the less.

Not sure why Red Robin would be vengeance, I feel vengeance was Batman's whole spiel, as for James Gordan being cowardice? He fights police corruption by himself, and shown in Year One he lost his old job by taking a cop to prison.

But of course this is your interpreted and you're free to it, Batman fans like myself could pick holes in anything until time itself stopped, all that matters is you interpreted it well and created a fantastic piece!

AlmightyHans responds:

The reason why I wouldn't make Jim be a fighter in my story, is because I'd like to keep Batman being the one doing the heroics. I thought Batman failed too much on top of having so many flaws in the new ones. I would like Jim to be like the audience's perspective. None of us can do what he does because reality weighs down on us, but we'll always root for Batman to do our biding.

I love the way the characters are portrayed, but don't you think that both Robin and Batman could be Vengeance and Obsession?

AlmightyHans responds:

if two characters share the exact same traits in a story, it's pointless to have them both.
