Batwoman Plans The Great Escape in Detective Comics #937


DC Comics is on a roll with their Rebirth of Detective Comics. Issue #937 is once again crafted by Writer James Tynion IV and the steady hand of Artist Alvaro Martinez. "The Rise of the Batmen" is on the horizon and it's up to the Caped Crusader's new motley crew of crime fighters to save the day.


In Detective Comics #937, Batman’s found his way into the heart of the Colony, the mysterious new organization cutting its way through Gotham City! Unfortunately, now that he’s in he may find there’s no way out!


A moment of clarity came upon me while reading issue #937. Kate Kane's father is Bruce Wayne's uncle! I must be dense as I've never put it together that Batwoman and Batman are related. That adds a whole other level of complexity and tragedy to the tale Tynion IV is telling.

Detective Comics #937 is rated T for Teen. It contains violence and gore and frightening and intense scenes. We're in PG-13 territory if compared to a movie.


Writer James Tynion IV takes the concept of Batman to the next logical step with Detective Comics #937. If the Gotham P.D. can find a way to officially weaponize the Dark Knight, just think what the U.S. military could do with his technology. They could build an army of armed and deadly Batmen ready to go to war at the drop of a hat. That's the chilling revelation we're left with as the issue comes to its exciting close.

Detective Comics #937 is available now in print and digital editions.
