A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 237
Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
Today we look at a neat Batman moment from a one-off storyline by John Wagner and Cam Kennedy…
Batman #477 and 478 show Batman, a woman whose (deceased) father was a villain called the Gargoyle and an old family friend of the woman are trapped in a vault during a robbery attempt. Trapped in the airtight vault for a few days, they only have enough air for two people. So they come up with a game where they will each tell a story and based on the story they will decide who should die.
After the woman tells a story about her father, the old man goes next and reveals that HE was actually the Gargoyle and now he’s going to kill them both!
Very cute twist there by Wagner, addressing the seemingly out of character idea of Batman resorting to an idea like “Hey, one of us should commit suicide so the other two can live!”
