It’s not that the people of Gotham don’t believe he exists… it’s that they no longer believe in HIM.  What happens when the urban legend of the City having a protector becomes moot… since, what has he done for us lately?  Well, it leads to a crisis of confidence for our Caped Crusader… and it lends a whole lotta weight to our “new normal”.  If you’ve always known Batman as being the “coolest” guy in any room he enters… this is an issue you’ll need to read to believe.

We’ve also got a Letters Page to discuss! 

Plus: A wildly confusing (for me) NMaiLbag!

    I think that Batman has come up against a problem that is outside of his ability to solve. Bruce has a deep seated need to help and save everyone. But he is not rich enough, not powerful enough, not smart enough to save his city, his people from this disaster. He is mentally in the same position he was in physically before Bane broke him. He is pushed beyond his limits and is feeling that he can’t do enough. This earthquake may be the first unbeatable enemy Batman has ever faced.
