And reading this review, it may be just the beginning of the problems:
Bruce reveals that he's aware of some bizarre assassinations taking place in Paris, and he wants to help. Still dubious, the cop shows Bruce a letter giving clues to the next murder, and Bruce deducts that a Muslim diplomat was the target of the assassin.Really? Not a cartoonist like Kurt Westergaard or Lars Vilks?
Also, it's funny how someone who recruited an indigenous Japanese combatant for his operation can't do the same in France. Surely Saint-Flour in Brittany might have a couple of brave folks who could step up to plate? Now that this has happened, one can only wonder if Bruce Wayne will go next to the Gaza Strip and recruit a Muslim who thinks him/herself oppressed not by the Hamas, but by the Israelis, and even to Sweden, where he'll recruit a Muslim living in Malmö, which has long had troubles of its own with suburban jihadists.
When this was brought up on the Dixonverse forum, someone asked:
Does he bring justice to the Parisian streets by lighting dozens of evil automobiles on fire every night?Here's an even more intriguing question: Does he condone or blandly tolerate some of the most horrifying verses in the Koran/Hadith like Sura 8:12? Or, more precisely, does the writer?
Thank goodness the JLA/99 special was a fiasco. We can only hope the same will be for this pretentious story. It certainly puts the lie to the whole notion that DC is "conservative". And it tells that they are really going downhill. I'm guessing that the writer, David Hine, is taking out his leftist anger on France for finally taking steps to fight back against creeping shariah and Islamic supremacism, by banning the niqab for starters.
Update: Bosch Fawstin had a special response to this kowtowing on News Real Blog a few months earlier.
