I've read every tie in so far and I have to agree with you. It isn't that great. Not even the main event in Dark Knights: Metal is making me feel as if this is something to get excited about. There's no suspense because I know the heroes are going to win in the end.
I also find it very hard to swallow that Batman has been targeted by some ancient being for centuries and the history that this comic seems to be telling with Bruce Wayne's past...it's simply ridiculous and beyond every plausibility.
But, looking on the net, I'd say we are in the vast minority. Everywhere I go, a lot of people are giving this storyline a lot of praise and the sales are at the top of the charts.
It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
