Not-Very-Deep Thoughts: The November 16 Edition (HERE BE SPOILERS!)

Batman #11:  The only real question here is why Bruce would've thought Catwoman would've stuck to the plan in the first place.  She's on death row for killing 237 people, so her decision to cut a deal with Bane in exchange for Bruce makes an abundant amount of sense.  After all, Bruce hadn't exactly made it clear how he was going to help Selena.  In all likelihood, the best he probably could've gotten her would be a commuted sentence, and I don't really think he should be surprised Selena didn't want to spend the rest of her life in prison.  The only remaining question is what role the Ventriloquist will play, since Bruce insists he is the only key component of his plan.  I guess we'll see. 

Captain America:  Sam Wilson #15:  This issue did my 13-year-old heart glad and not just because of D-Man being gay or the joke about Hostess Fruit Pies.  I love that Spencer is not only bringing back characters from Gruenwald's run, as he does with Battlestar here, but also making them relevant.  I wonder what Battlestar would think about John's crusade to wrest the shield from Sam, and I hope we get to see him discussing exactly that with John and/or Sam.  It goes to the point Spencer has Sam make here, about how it's nice to remember what it's like to be heroes.  Sam has allies, and it's probably time for him to lean on them more than he has.

Nightwing #9:  This issue works as a stand-alone issue as a nice exploration of Dick's relationship not just with Clark but also the rest of the DCnU.  But, it's mostly important because it re-introduces Blüdhaven.  Clark told Dick that he moved there in the DCU to be its protector, and Dick heads there at the end of this issue.  With the Parliament of Owls behind him, Dick is in search of a raison d'être, and it look like he might've just found one.  I regret never having read the original "Nightwing" series, and I'm stoken to get a chance to see Dick active in Blüdhaven.
