Jedi are not Batman.  Marty is definitely not Batman.

    Then again Johnny is weak willed enough that a hand wave and “you do not see me” might work.

  2. DaveBro says:

    Cue “Do You Love Me” from Dirty Dancing :p

  3. Docknock says:

    I am still wondering how this fits with the time when future Johnny visited himself.

    • Xaran Alamas says:

      That already happened a while back, unless there was another time I forgot?

      • WJS says:

        He’s met himself three times so far: Once early on, when himself from eight years in the future warned him not to eat the fish, once while they were time travelling when he warned himself eight years in the past not to eat the fish, and also that time when he was approached by the devil to sell his soul, a grey-haired Johnny talked him out of it. The first two have been closed now, but only half of that third one has happened yet.

    • Doc says:

      Perhaps medical cloning technology improves some time in the future…

  4. Mark says:

    I just can’t get used to Johnny having that skeptical smirk on his face…. skepticism implies, you know… thinking.

    He still acts like the same old Johnny, so it’s not even like there’s character growth happening as a result of the accident (not that I would particularly want Johnny to grow up too much as a character… his perpetually naive cluelessness has always been a delight to read since the character was first introduced).

    Y’know, I feel like I’m watching a tv show with an actor portraying a role that was actually written for someone else that had previously portrayed the character for years, and then the old actor either suddenly quit the show or got fired. In-story, the writers say that there was an accident, write it in so the person has to stay at a hospital for a few episodes where they aren’t seen at all, and has to have cosmetic surgery because of the injuries to explain the new appearance to the audience. The new actor can nail all the dialogue and do absolutely everything the part requires, but sometimes the cast change just doesn’t work. Suspension of disbelief can only go so far.

    My 2c.

    • Doc says:

      I tend to take it to be a subtle sort of thing. Even when he had the visor-y thing before, he was always smiling. Now, after fighting the KiY, and everything else he’s been through, Johnny just isn’t quite as cheerful as before.

    So… Batman is a Jedi? That explains so much, and yet so little.
