DC Comics presents us with one of the most fascinating superheroes of all time: Batman. Arguably his super power is his immense wealth and equally immense intelligence, but he does not, in fact, have any super-human powers in his own universe. In this way, Batman is thought of to be one of us, a human who stands amongst Gods. However, is Batman really one of us, aided only by a strong mind and a family fortune?

So, I’ll admit that last week’s preview had me bracing for a bad episode. Maybe not ‘jump the shark’ bad, but still a downturn that would be hard to recover from.

The good news is, it wasn’t as bad as I was expecting. The bad news is, it’s still a definite step down from the last few weeks.
