It was... okay. Although, NOT near as good as the lead up issues.
Very much so. (Even warrants a banner submission.:))
Parallel lives has been done before with Bats; this felt way too... "Oedipal Overkill". As you said, "obvious and lacking a subtle touch", too. (Not to mention it ignores all the engaging entertaining/emotional development Simone's Secret Six had given Bane.
This done as the surprise element was not good payoff compared to seeing the rescue on-panel - which is arguably the more challenging part of the plan compared to a prepped 'bob and weave' part.
Well... a No-Prize possibility is that Bats played a little bit of underdog authenticity in it to add to the distraction. Bane -the proven threat- successfully planned to kidnap Pirate, break into the Batcave, etc. and now this fight seemed a (feeble?) attempt for just a vicarious visual to imply to readers that Bats is ultimately a better planner.
Good review, either way.
While links last...
