| > > Remind me about the Crime Bible? What's it's story - so to speak? And why/what is Batwoman fighting over it?|
> Batwoman is fighting over the Bible because she understands the power of the Crime Bible and knows that whenever there are cultists of the Crime Bible, there are people trying to kill her. Her death would bring about the "Apokolips on Earth", where Gotham becomes the first of many firepits on Earth.
Just to add a bit of info. We saw how the Cultists were out to kill her due to the writings in the Crime Bible both in 52 and Question: The Four Books of Blood.
| > > Mercy is an interesting balance for Spectre - is this her intro? And was Sister Clarice from GCPD? And previously alive for readers?|
> That is new too.
Clarice's introduction was in issue one where she died in the hospital with two nuns hoping for God's mercy on her.
| > > So, Libra had nothing to do with surviving Spectre, it was God who forbid him? (Libra can NOT have friends in On High places!)|
> > Why are they calling Vandal by the name of Batgirl's father, Cain?
> Cain might also refer to the person who inspired the Crime Bible. Many of the characters in the Bible are actual DC characters (like Lilith or Darksied) by go by different names. The cultists may believe that Vandal Savage is the Crime Bible Cain.
I don't think there is any doubt that this is the case.
| > > When was Vandal marked by Spectre? Does this appearance of his follow Planet Salvation? (Hope that Event wont be forgotten by writers so quickly too.) |
> Stabbing Vandal Savage through the chest might've made him the Biblical Cain, which is why he mentions being marked by the "wrath of god."
The good old "Mark of Cain"
| > > Why bothering getting issue 3? (That's a rhetorical one.)|
> Revelations is a good book, but you have to be following Question and Spectre to fully appreciate.
Agreed. But if you have read those books Revelation is a GREAT book IMO.
