One Million is the greatest comic book crossover event of all time, just bursting with crazy ideas and an underlying sense of optimism. Not only does she write for ScreenRant, The Gamer, Comic Book Resources, and GameRant but she runs her own personal blog, discussing many things pop culture-related. Praises be! The seven sliders add just a little more of personal touch, but you can’t do anything too extreme; I wont be finding totally disproportional monstrosities once I finally get in-game. If the Wicked Witch puts Batman in a tractor beam, you can free him by moving the figure on the platform sensor, but in a game like 2010’s Lego Harry Potter you could get the same effect by just switching to another character. At their hideout, they are just about to begin; they get there in time to stop them before they can inject any more people. Still, it’s a great time, and like the previous story, one of the more confident, solid entries I’ve read in this series so far. If you’re not familiar with Batman from DC One Million, then please go and read the entire event right now. Please read the description above to make sure you are ordering what you require.
Weirdly enough, it is both straightforward and abstract, with a pretty simple narrative throughline that still might make you scratch your head. See, as much as Batman is a skilled fighter and devotes his life to stopping crime, even in the far future, he still holds out hope that his opponents will reform. As with the previous crossover efforts, this event will see Evangelion characters appear in the game as party members with their own, unique sets of attacks and abilities. As for the coloring, it’s also fine, but it’s almost too muted, with characters blending into the backgrounds. There are brief sequences that have a greenish tint, and it’s then that the art pops the most, as the characters are finally allowed to stand out against the environments. Throw in a script from Tim Seeley, some art from Juan Ferreyra, and letters from Becca Carey? “Hunter… or Hunted” is really good, with two notable setbacks: the script and the coloring. The problem with the script is that it’s almost unnecessary. If it’s with Robin, the Toy Wonder in tow, then all the better. Accompanied by his trusty sidekick Robin, the Toy Wonder, the Dark Knight of the far future is as mysterious as he is terrifying, as his real identity has never been revealed.
A return to the world of DC One Million, with a focus on Robin, the Toy Wonder? This costume is beloved by fans because not only does it resemble the comics, but it looks like it could exist in the real world. Cass’ costume is black and yellow, and looks great, but the cityscape is awash in grays and browns and oranges and reds, so it all becomes a bit muddled. Baldemar Rivas and the always great Alejandro Sanchez pull out some pretty fun visuals with Batman, as he used his advanced suit to effectively “reskin” himself with different Batman looks. There’s even a “classic” Batman suit that looks close enough to the costume we’re used to seeing, with enough differences to actual lend it more credibility. As the parent of a very young child, you may choose their very first boys costume, but once your son is old enough to make some decisions about what they want, the two of you can have a great time looking online for some really “bad” outfits. It’s just broad enough to leave you asking questions, without being frustrating, and the fights are as brutal as they are brief.
But that’s not really the point of the story, even if it’s what makes it fun. No, the point of the story actually hits on some of the same themes that Jackon and Lanzing tried to incorporate in their script, but it’s done to much better effect here. This suit will be made in the same style as the recent Captain America suits – an ‘armored’ torso that fits over a stretch shirt with the sleeves and pants that combine ‘armor’ and stretch elements. Kenny Porter wrote a better Batman here than a lot of other writers in this same series, and I really hope he gets the chance to do it again. Women’s costumes also have a mix of the perennially popular along with a surprise here and there. Though these costumes are highly attractive, they have become so common that people generally do not pay attention to them anymore, especially if there are other more interesting costumes that are presently available.
