2 Works in Jokester & Bruce Wayne
25 Feb 2019
Elsewhere in the multiverse, things go differently.
Batman lets a man fall, or doesn’t; the man breaks, or reassembles the pieces into something resembling beauty; the glittering shards reflect fire, or a kind touch, or distort the grim line of a mouth into an endlessly laughing face.
A stone dropped into a river causes ripples.
Sometimes the water rises, retreats, leaves behind fertile ground and the promise of life. Sometimes it scours everything in its path and leaves only broken rock and crumbling bone.
Sometimes, only silence remains.

The Jokester has gotten used to his face not being the most reassuring sight in the world, what with the scars, but everyone he meets all of a sudden acting like they think he's some kind of puppy-kicking monster, that's...new.
It's almost a relief when Owlman shows up. The black outfit is also new, but at least here's someone who's supposed to hate him.
