I didn't know exactly what to expect, but wow you wrote this in such a fantastic and gripping way. I love to read this type of writing over and over.

I liked the story.
Something tells me, that even if Batman isn't happy about Narrator's actions, the ghost of Rorschach approves.

Not that familiar with the Batman mythos outside of a few television shows and videogames, I'd guess your take on a slightly less psychotic version of Hugo Strange? Maybe Azreal?

Quite good, not at all what I expected and it's almost amusing to see 'The World's Greatest Detective' picked apart psychologically so quickly. I hope you continue writing but looking at your profile it seems like only the crank case file is getting looked at regularly. Regardless, thank you for the diversion and the smile it brough.

Oh, that last Omake was just hilarious!
So which villain did the mystery guy kill?
| clexfan chapter 1 . 12/8/2012
LOL, that last Omake was frickin' awesome!

...with the possible exception of the lousy shot bit my guess is Lazlo Soot from Smokin Aces.
He borrows people's faces, has lots of money, I don't think we ever see him using precision weapons, he doesn't look to young to be about fifty...
Still seems like a long shot but that's my guess.

Very well written and presented!

A strange way of writing. Especially the part of how Batman is never directly mentioned as Batman.
As for the identity of the narrator, the chances of actually guessing his identity is only a 50/50 chance because even if the given guess is accurately fit on whoever the guy is, in the end there is still a probability that he isn't that guy and only coincidentally fit his profile.
So, I would greatly appreciate if you tell me. Of course, you still have the choice not to but... yeah I would greatly appreciate it if you do.

...Interesting. I hope the villain is/was who I think it is/was. heh. Nice POV world play.
| Lord Sia chapter 1 . 5/30/2012
And, of course, this line would have to be included somewhere along the line:
"Is it any surprise that 'batman' bats for the other team?"

Reading thru the story a few times i want to say the character is Hush with an altered history of some sort. I look forward to seeing if i'm right or not this is a truly enjoyable tale.

Ya know, with all the speculation of who the main character is I'd like to mention that my instinct on first read was that of a bitter, disillusioned Harry Potter. Mostly because I came to this fic after reading Old Soldiers Never Die and Make a Wish. It feels right to me.

hm.. no idea who this is.. / I think leaving it to the reader to figure it out in this case makes it much worse / for one, I'm not even sure if I would know the character.. or if its an OC.. though the comment at the end there seems to discourage that option. Tentatively like it though. the logic and arguments employed are very interesting, but without a better psychological map of the main character I'm not sure how to react to them /

Batman villain mask odd biology cop-killer target
Riddler? (tiny mask, but mask nonetheless)
Joker and we ignore the mask? (that fits the crazed minion)
Fifty-ish master of disguise not a physical powerhouse not a great shot formerly had access to massive resources Mr. Black
Anyway, there are pacing issues. The tension builds, then is sustained, then evaporates.
Otherwise good. But otherwise shouldn't be enough for someone who's already put as much ink down as have you.
