First Blood

Batwing #2 (2011-12)

As expected, Zavimbe is not dead. The blade missed his heart by a bare millimeter, he was rescued, and he's been unconscious two weeks, recovering. Massacre made a needlessly cryptic remark (bad writing, seriously: "so close to home, where small minds expand"), and Zavimbe determines that he's going to strike at a school. Coincidentally, that attack is happening this very minute! The schoolteacher, it turns out, was also a former superhero, and Massacre appears to be seeking revenge. What did those heroes do? Hard to say. Massacre may well be justified--relatively speaking--in his actions.

In the end, the badly wounded Batwing shows up, and a fight between Massacre and Batwing shall commence... next issue!

Well, it's not too bad. Worth continuing, but I'm not in love with this one.
