The Review of Batman Nightwalker Except There Is No Batman

Ever since I was a child, Batman was part of my life. It didn’t matter if it was reruns of the Adam West incarnation or a cartoon, even Tim Burton’s. As I grew up, my love for Batman grew stronger and more prominent to the point that now I call myself a Batmanologist. This review is not going to be pretty. Brace for impact.

*** Note that I have nothing against Marie Lu, as I never read one of her novels. I am only critiquing her Batman Nightwalker novel alone.
Spoiler Alert. ***

The World’s Intelligence

For millennia humankind fought each other to prove who is the strongest and who should rule over others. The fear of becoming the conquered overgrew and now is part of humankind’s genes. Present in our DNA is the desire to protect our land. We learned it is better to divide and conquer. It is no surprise that we are, not explorers.

Armies were never enough. Our societies grew in age to believe they were superior. As a result, to keep their superiority, one must prove to be smarter than the other. To do so, secret services developed.

The Death of Lorca

When writing for The Geek Initiative, I was the “official” review of the new Star Trek series, Star Trek Discovery. I wrote a review for each episode, and when sources came out that Captain Lorca would meet his death, I was quite angry.

Follow my reasoning here: Star Trek was always on the “right sight of things,” and here, we could tangibly feel that DISCO was about showing the dark side of The Federation, Starfleet and everything it implies.

Well, I was a fan of the Alien franchise, Ripley being a role model to me. I wanted to watch Alien III because it was the one I didn’t watch, but the movie wasn’t there.

The guy behind the counter suggested Event Horizon. He said that the movie was science-fiction and horror mixed together. He said I’d like it. So, my mother rented it, and when coming home, we put pushed play on the VHS and the movie that changed my perception of time and space started.
