When Convergence Becomes The Killing Joke (SPOILERS)

In today's Convergence #3, the Thomas Wayne Batman of Flashpoint is under assault from Professor Pyg and friends… with Man-Bat taking care of Dick Grayson.

That's right folks, Batman's dad is a suicide bomber.

And an expert one too, somehow using the explosion to take out Man-Bat but keeping Dick Grayson alive. Or, as they say in snooker, a completely jammy shot.

What are you trying to say, Dick? "If only Batman was still around and hadn't blown himself up, maybe he could have helped me with the Joker?"

Yeah, just what I was thinking…
