It looks like a piñata, but it's a severed head! Misty kicking ass! One of these days, I want to have many red dots from laser sights on my head and body! What is this strange relic? Mark does not play with any children in this comic! That can't end well Yeah, I don't know what Bane's arm is doing I'm still harping on the change in cover artists!
