What Triggered Batman's Failsafe? (Batman #127 Spoilers)
Back in June when we first got a look at Failsafe, previously a teased title of the then-upcoming Batman ongoing comic book by Chip Zdarsky and Jorge Jimenez, Bleeding Cool made some very speculatory guesses as to what Failsafe might be.
But there can't be much. Failsafe, a seeming robotic entity is triggered in Batman #125. By what? Well, it has "a dark connection to Batman's past", there are a few options.
- We have the almost death of a Robin.
- We have the death of the Penguin,
- We have a Batman framed for his murder.
Could he be something Batman installed to take him down if he ever becomes a murderer? Something created by Fox Tech as part of the Magistrate Future State? Is he an Amazo? Or something else entirely? What is he a Failsafe for? Who built him? And why is he a threat to Batman?
In this week's Batman #127, we get more than just Failsafe as a backup for Batman, as another Batman personality comes into play. Who has a different take on potential deaths of Robins.
And a Failsafe that reveals his is indeed triggered when it is believed that Batman has taken a life, in this case the Penguins…
….even if it is indeed a set-up job to make it appear that Batman killed The Penguin, in The Joker's own Dark Knight style. But help is at hand…
…but how far do Failsafe's protocols go?
