Batman & Robin Eternal #23 by James Tynion IVMothers scheme begins to play out across the globe as the Somnus virus begins bring kids under 20 under her control. Forcing them to attack their parents and any other adult cause rioting in the effected cities. Now the Bat-Family must expand it number and spread out to stem the chaos and leverage their way Mothers Headquarters.
The intensity really starts to amp up this issue with a slew of guest appearances - most notably Spoiler and Midnighter. These characters get a generous dose of page time as well as some great dialogue! Ive started to warm up to Midnighter in his own book, but I really liked him here - maybe because hes just left of the spotlight and serves as a great supporting character. Not sure I like him center stage. Spoiler is growing on me as well. Never really read many of her stories previously, but I like the direction shes moving in as a character. Her scene with Scarecrow in this issue is just fantastic!
Another winner of an issue here! Looks like this is shaping up for an Epic Finale!

Batman and Robin Eternal #23 review
Its the catastrophic conclusion of the acclaimed weekly series that brings together all of Batmans one-time partners! Mothers trap has been sprung, and the whole world is feeling her wrath! Can Dick Grayson pull together his allies to fight an entire army of foes? Is one among them still under Mothers control? And what will become of Cassandra Cain? You wont believe how huge this battle can become! Eliot likely would never have considered working for DC Entertainment.
Spoiler and Midnighter join the battle against Mother.
Talking, talking, talking, and more talking. This entire issue is essentially the set-up for the finale. It does a perfectly adequate job of informing us of who the players are, what is at stake, and what has to be done. As I said, this does a good job of putting all the pieces in place for the main event, I just wish it had been a little more intriguing in and of itself. The opening to this tale is super solid. We are presented with a series of phone messages from Harper Row to Cullen, her brother.
