Reader's Diary #2250 - Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point

Not a Batman fan and haven't ever played Fortnite, I do have a soft spot for crossovers, and so I gave Batman/Fortnite: Zeropoint a shot anyway. All things considered, I enjoyed it. It was definitely entertaining.

Not surprisingly, the crossover happens with a alternate universe sort of scenario. Batman, Cat Woman, Deathstroke, Harley Quinn are sucked into a bizarre violent world where their memories are wiped. All they know is that they have to survive endless battles with strange characters. No one can speak. Worst of all? (But actually, best of all from an entertainment point of view) their memories are wiped again after 22 minutes. This adds a really fun video game element.

I also enjoyed Batman for a change. He actually does some detective work, which I've often mocked him for not doing considering he's supposedly the "world's greatest detective". And he finds ways to retain information from one reset to the next which eventually helps him and the others escape. 

Also, at one Snake Eyes (from G.I. Joe) also appears, so a 3rd surprise crossover was an added bonus. 

Finally the art is pretty good and considering that the creative teams were mixed it from one story to the next, it feels surprisingly consistent.
