Six Failsafe Spoilers For Tomorrow's Batman #128

As we just pointed out, tomorrow's Batman #128 goes out of its way to make sure we know everything in it happened before Justice League #75 and the Dark Crisis event. It's just a wonder, in that case, that none of them mentioned it as the League go up against the Failsafe robot that an alternative personality of Batman created in case Batman ever became a murderer, triggered by the Penguin's fake death at the hands of Bruce Wayne. And with protocols, like Alan Moore and Alan Davis's The Fury, to take down all and sundry.
