The Phantom Stranger Shows A Very Shaky Grasp Of Legal Matters (Spoilers)


From today's rather splendid Trinity Of Sin: The Phantom Stranger. Our mysterious supernatural fellow takes Batman, Katana and Deadman to Heaven. And we get, for the first time, the new rules of DC heaven. And they seem to be along the lines of the Savage Dragon.

And along the way, they meet the late, nice, non-rapist Dr Light. And The Phantom Stranger has a plan.


Yes, because, for some reason, in the New 52, as long as you put it back you never broke the law. And even if bringing someone back from the dead after murdering them means there was no murder… there was still attempted murder.

Naturally of course, Judas Iscariot's plots never did go exactly to plan…
