This was an awesome issue, hella confused about Biz at the end, like, is that the pit?? Or???
Waylon being a better father figure to Jason than Bruce is my new aesthetic.
It's felt like fucking forever since the last issue.
Origin story #4 : Killer Crochet.
Born as Waylon Jones, diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder that causes his skin to appear scaled and his body to grow claws, razor-sharp teeth and other features similar to a crocodile’s, the challenged young man went through life bullied by other kids and raised by an abusive and uncaring aunt.
As he grew older, Waylon became bitter, developing into a violent and malevolent criminal and adopting a fearful name that matched his frightening appearance—Killer Croc. Waylon managed to engineer a career path that took him from sideshow wrestler to a formidable criminal figure in the Gotham City underworld, often finding himself at violent odds with Batman. And yet, perhaps because of his childhood, Waylon has a soft spot for abandoned and neglected children. He shelters many within his territory in the sewers of Gotham, something that has not gone unnoticed by the Dark Knight, who has demonstrated a bit more leniency with Croc over the years than with most of Gotham’s rogues.
"You know, they used to call Killer Croc the meanest dude in the wrestling federation. Now, they'll call him the guy who iced the Batman." Today's BTAS episode is from season 1 titled "Vendetta" and is the 23rd produced and 21st to air. Criminals are starting to be kidnapped and missing, and no ones got a clue who's doing it. Batman starts to investigate the areas where people are missing and starts to get a lot of clues pointing to Harvey Bullock. Then "Bullock" breaks into secret files he wouldn't have access to and the next day he is arrested. Batman isn't content however, and feels it was someone else. He does DNA testing on a scale he found that has both human and crocodile properties. He learns about a wrestler named "Killer Croc" who hasn't been heard from in a while and eventually finds his underwater cavern with the kidnapped criminals. Batman is able to get the men to safety and away from Croc. Batman uses Bullock as bait to draw Croc out and they have an epic battle in Gotham's sewers. I love this episode and especially the original design of Croc.
This series needs to be bimonthly I s2g ^^^artist tagged^^^
Ooo Im kinda digging the crossover between The Suicide Squad and The Outlaws , and just generally enjoy Jay and Artemis's chat between each other, idk how to feel about Biz rn but oh well c:
I loved this issue and had some dislikes but besides that it was great
Gerry Conway and Gene Colan plagued readers with the terrifying character KILLER CROC! Perfected by the Arkhamverse, Waylon Jones has a very odd record when it comes to adaptations. He's designed to scare, but appears in movies/shows/games directed for people of all ages. Meaning that the writers have to steer clear of the horror aspects so little children will not be scarred. I love the character because like Mr. Freeze he is tragic. Croc cannot help looking the way he does or having a dangerous craving for meat. In 2016, fans finally got to see Killer Croc swim to the big screen in Suicide Squad played by Adewae Akinnuoye-Agbaje. Talk about waste of potential! Not only does he have less lines than El Diablo (a very obscure character) but he is also given an ugly design. CGI was definitely necessary to match up to the designs shown in the Arkhamverse, however, the film didn't feel this beloved character was worth any effort. Thus ruining the character for the D.C.E.U.! The future for Waylon Jones/Killer Croc is set thanks to the character's rising popularity. But whether it's better than Suicide Squad is unclear right now.
