So, most of you may know that DC has signed a contract with 4 YA Authors to bring 4 superheroes to life! And The amazing Marie Lu was assigned Batman! It focuses on Bruce Wayne And how he came to be Batman! For once, I am going to avoid spoilers but a brief summary will be given below.
The book starts with a young Bruce Wayne attending a party and there you meet his friends! However it also shows the exuberance and the reason behind Batman’s nature, so I suppose the books give a type of background on the characters and show them from a different perspective. In some ways I wish we had actually met the Joker… because… well he’s the Joker… do I need a reason? 😂 (yes, I have a weakness for very well-played villains).
The book then develops from there and shows the transformation within the character and personality that portrays Bruce Wayne and slowly, but surely, transforms it more and more into who we know as Batman! I’m not going to say much more as I know that many of you may be wary over reading a book based on movies and a franchise that has been out in the world for years, but if you can differentiate between the two different stories told by the movies and this book, then you’ll be sure to love it!
