Move over God of Thunder and rejoice, Bat-Fanatics, as you are in the presence of the almighty Maxie Zeus! You’ll laugh, you’ll . . . well, mostly laugh, as Joe and Kendall explore the complex history of one of the best themed Batman crime bosses. Witness Maxie’s descent from intelligent threat to joke villain--who is only in the story to justify a Greek/Roman element--in only a few issues. From a villain who Batman calls a genius to a guy who can’t even successfully avoid running into a tree as he tries to escape Arkham, weep with Joe and Kendall for what could have been and laugh at what is.
