The week six Gotham Future specify stories all have two things in common. Firstly, they’re all truly damn good. as well as secondly, they’re all extremely intense. however there’s even a lot more great news than that! Answers! Indeed, we get a great deal of pieces to the huge Future specify puzzle. Here, we’ll look at Dark Detective #2, Robin Eternal #2, and, since it would be method as well much for the DC Future specify coverage, teen Titans #2.
Dark Detective #3 Is The Centerpiece of Gotham Future specify Week Six

Up up until this week, if somebody asked me if The next Batman or Dark Detective was the much better book, I would have stated The next Batman without a doubt. however with Gotham Future specify Week Six, I’d have to hesitate. This was one of the very best anthology problems yet (even if it only covers two stories), from the composing all the method to the lettering. Also, we see just exactly how crazy this editorial team is. Whoever organized the release calendar for Future specify is a mad genius. So, let’s take a look:

Back in The next Batman #2, Poison Ivy as well as Catwoman raided a CEO’s penthouse to get useful info about the tech the Magistrate uses. Their mark was Dax Dilton, the Steve tasks of robotics manufacturing. They discover out that not only is he supplying the cybers’ tech, he likewise wishes to go public, which would provide the Magistrate a possibility to take total manage over it. However, in Dark Detective #3, we see a extremely similar circumstance that might modification Dilton’s. since CEO Carl Bennington, who wished to offer parts of his company, got a great bit offer from the Magistrate: a bullet to the head.
Though business espionage isn’t normally the most interesting plotline for a comic, these actions bring us better to comprehending who the Magistrate is as well as why Peacekeeper-01 killed Bruce Wayne. It’s still a lot more than likely that they understood Wayne as well as Batman were the exact same person, however now, as Bruce is starting to realize, the Magistrate may have targeted him for Wayne Enterprises, not for his change ego. In doing so, they moved in on Wayne Enterprises as well as now have gain access to to tech Wayne wished to keep buried. For instance, micro surveillance drones.
But would Lucius Fox, the CEO of Wayne Enterprises, enable them access? That’s a challenging question, however we’ll get a few a lot more hints about the Fox Family’s function during one more Gotham story in Future specify Week Six.
In Week six of Future State, We lastly get the Gotham moment We’ve Been Waiting for: Batman V Batman!
Either fight or kiss, however stop teasing us. Okay, tease us a bit more. (Image: Future State: Dark Detective #3, DC Comics)
While the Dark Detective goes “fly fishing” for the micro-drones, he runs into a bit of Magistrate trouble. However, like lots of other citizens in Gotham, the new Batman saves him. What occurs next is the very best back as well as forth between two gruff-Batmen: threats, snide comebacks, as well as great deals of testosterone-driven posturing. The entire exchange is only two pages long, however between Tamaki’s composing as well as Mora/Bellaire’s art, we get the most legendary non-fight we might have really hoped for. however they didn’t requirement to fight. They just needed to gaze each other down. However, I hope we see them satisfy up once again in Dark Detective #4 or anywhere.
This reminds me—wasn’t Bruce Wayne on that prisoner train in Catwoman #1? So, it appears like Bruce isn’t winning this one. Additionally, from Justice league #1, we understand that it’s Tim who saves Gotham. however now that we’re in week six of the Gotham Future specify stories, the entire photo is starting to find together.
The Gotham Future specify Week six Story, Grifters part 2, consists of One extremely crucial Fact
holy legendary helicopter motorcycle chase, Batman! (Image: Future State: Dark Detective #3, DC Comics)
Writer: Matthew Rosenberg
Artist: Carmine Di Giandomenico
Colorist: Antonio Fabela
The second part of Grifter’s story was a great deal of fun, mainly since Di Giandomenico/Fabela’s art is incredible. There’s a chase scene that feels a lot more cinematic than some actual movies’ chase scenes. as well as the final battle? Epic. It’s worth reading for the extraordinary art alone. however the primary function of art is always to serve the story. as well as while Rosenberg’s story is a great deal of fun, there’s one expose that modifications whatever for the Gotham Future specify stories before, after, as well as during week six of this huge event.
Before we go on, you may be asking why this essential detail is in a backup story of a C-list hero’s story? Well, it’s satisfying for everybody reading every detail. In effect, this is like Volstagg exposing the Infinity Stones’ existence in the mid-credit scene of Thor: The Dark World. So what do we learn?
Luke Fox is the other grifter in the title Grifters. as well as who is he working for, or on behalf of? The Magistrate. He didn’t want Cole Cash’s assist at all. Luke just desired Cole to bring him to Huntress, his actual target. So, he made a offer with the Magistrate that he would assist them get her if they let him walk free. So, he’s truly not on the heroes’ side ideal now. as well as in next Batman we see him training. What does this mean? might it be possible that Luke Fox is Peacekeeper-01? That would be a crazy twist, however pure comic book lore—Brother vs sibling for the fate of Gotham.
Guess we’ll discover out in the next couple of weeks.
Future State: Robin Eternal #2 provides us one more fantastic final thought in the Week six Gotham Stories
Well, that’s what you get when you criticize a man’s decision to wear eco-friendly goo. (Image: Future State: Robin Eternal, DC Comics)
Writer: Meghan Fitzmartin
Penciler: Eddy Barrows
Inker: Eber Ferriera
Colorist: Adriano Lucas
If you didn’t already like Tim Drake, you will now. This final thought was nearly as crazy as Grifters. Granted, we don’t discover anything momentous, other than that this takes location before The next Batman #2’s Batgirls. However, the story still feels extremely crucial to Gotham Future State’s landscape as well as is one of the very best problems of week six regardless. Drake is covered with a poisonous resin that keeps him alive, driving him mad as well as slowly killing him.
But even though we discover that ingesting the resin is a “death sentence,” we don’t understand what type of death. It appears like it will ultimately make him emotionless, even if he is invincible as well as has incredibly strength. He doesn’t understand that, though, as well as figures that he’ll most likely die, so he takes the convoy bring the resin down with him into the Gotham harbor, where the organic materials in the water will ruin the substance.
But, of course, that doesn’t kill him. Interestingly, we now understand that this is earlier in the Gotham Future specify narrative, in spite of concluding in week six. will we when once again see this new Eternal Robin when whatever hits the fan? Hopefully, we do—because his story feels like it is just getting started.
Future State: teen Titans #2 is One huge Puzzle piece for the Gotham as well as DC Week six Stories
This comic features, like, nine team hero shots. (Image: Future State: teen Titans #2, DC Comics)
Writer: Tim Sheridan
Penciler: Rafa Sandoval
Inker: Júlio Ferriera
Colorist: Alejandro Sanchez
Oh, man, where to begin with this one. We discover a great deal in this issue, linking The Flash, Shazam, as well as Black Adam together. The only response we don’t get is why Dick Grayson puts on the Deathstroke mask. He states it’s “for protection,” however that makes no sense at all. however let’s look at what we do know, now that we have a ton of answers from this (not quite) Gotham Future specify week six story.
Who is accountable for Unleashing the four motorcyclists of the Apocalypse?
I don’t believe it’s listening, Raven. (Image: Future State: teen Titans #2, DC Comics)
First, we discover out that Red X called down the four riders—but not for evil reasons, which is odd, because, you know, they’re the four @#$%^&* motorcyclists of the APOCALYPSE. Apparently, the teen Titans were screwing up so terribly that Red X felt the motorcyclists were a much better option. We don’t get much a lot more than that, however it’s enough. since of his actions, half the world is dead. quite poor for an oops action, huh? The motorcyclists then selected avatars, as well as we understand that Famine selected Wally West. war appears to be Ares, as well as death is some odd creature. however Pestilence? They got Roundhouse. That’s just cruel.
This is the final battle (maybe) of the motorcyclists as well as the Titans. as well as it’s quite big, particularly when Red X utilizes a customized H-dial to phone call 8-4-8-2-6-7, “Titans.” This brings forth all the dead Titans’ spirits, including one that makes DC Future State: The Flash even a lot more unpleasant than the horrible writing.
Wall West was never to life during The Flash series. So, whenever Barry tried to reach Wally, it was all a trick. We understood that Famine was utilizing his like for Wally to bait him, however there was never a possibility that Barry might have succeeded. As a result, the entire Flash household is dead, as well as most likely Iris too. As well, the editorial team selected the release calendar for these two titles perfectly. It’s a genuine gut punch coming in the (again, not quite) Gotham Future specify week six stories.
What is Billy Batson Guarding in the rock of Eternity?
Hey, keep in mind that game “Where’s Neron?” bet you can’t discover him! (Image: Future State: teen Titans #2, DC Comics)
Future State: teen Titans #2 comes before Shazam #1, where we got one of the most horrifying moments of this entire event. Billy Batson as well as Shazam were split into two beings, as well as Billy, having the stronger soul, was delegated make guard the rock of Eternity. however we never asked what he was guarding. The evident response would be the character who is normally inside the Rock: Black Adam.
It isn’t. It’s the Riders, all contained within Raven’s form. This is what Billy chained himself to the rock for—to make sure that the motorcyclists of the Apocalypse might never get out again, as well as with them, Raven is likewise trapped too, as one more prison. however exactly how long will this last? Sadly, in Gotham Future specify week six, we get that response too.
The Titans’ actions will emerge almost 1000s of Years Later.
Hopefully, they dial up the Titans once again in the 853rd Century. (Image: Future State: teen Titans #2, DC Comics)
In Future State: suicide Squad #1’s back up Black Adam story, we satisfy the “Unkindness.” This is a group of foul entities, including the seven deadly sins, a corrupted Dove, Vandal Savage, as well as others. Those others? You guessed it—the four motorcyclists of the Apocalypse. When Raven imprisons the motorcyclists into her own form, she tells Shazam that she felt “an Unkindness.” as well as that’s going to turn into something massive.
When we satisfy the Unkindness in Black Adam, they’re all named except for one person. This fine, um, lady?
That’s some wardrobe change, Rachel. (Image Future State: suicide Squad #1, DC Comics)
Well, now we understand who as well as what she is. This is Raven, twisted by numerous years of keeping the four motorcyclists within her as well as obviously merging herself into one entity. A Lord of Chaos. So, 832 centuries later, as well as the Titans are still screwing up the universe—and they don’t even exist anymore.
Before as well as After Gotham Future specify Week Six
We’re getting so close to the end (yes, I’m absolutely conscious it has ended. Our protection will catch up!), as well as the event is getting a lot more exciting—especially from the Gotham stories in Future specify Week Six. Now, on to the checklist!
