Even with Batmans ingenuity I can't ever see him coming out of this looking great. I'd guess it will be in line with their fight in 'Hush' where Superman is controlled by Poision Ivy, that was just about credible as it showed Batman surviving by basically running away and using the city's environment to his advantage.
It's strange, I've enjoyed James Robinsons League run a great deal but this super hyped September launch doesn't excite me much at all. It all seems very artificial, very 90s in fact. 20 years after his heyday I don't think Jim Lee's art has the attraction and genius that made him a success, his art is so synonymous with a particular era and phase in comics (1991 Marvel/Image) it just hasn't got the charm any more. There are a large raft of artists who have followed him and aped his style, I look at newcomers like Miguel Sepulveda and even Brett Booth and think they're great, the level of detail and care put into their work is stunning whereas Jim Lee (still a good artist I must say) looks quite dated.... like his contempories his style has never evolved or adapted.

is good art dated? I mean if we look back to comic art done int he 60's yeah it shows, but from the 80's on has it really changed much, i think coloring tech and printing improvements are the biggest changes in the last 20+ years and can't see looking at this art in 20 years and seeing it dated like looking back to the 60's does,,,
