Moore and Clarke conclude their two-part story about the attack on Wayne Tower in Detective 830 (Late May 2007).
Robin has to use a blowtorch to remove the explosive goo from his uniform. Those costumes must be extremely sturdy, if a blowtorch will not damage them.
Bruce has no luck keeping the peace delegates from fighting amongst themselves, and with Tim in trouble and Vox on the loose, drops a smoke bomb and uses it to get away and change to Batman.
Both halves of this story use exterior shots of the Tower really well, helping to build the suspense in the situation.
Batman finally confronts Vox. The two men fight, but it’s not strength that defeats the bomber.
Rather, it’s Batman arguments about making innocents suffer while trying to right wrongs, and Vox realizing that he has become just as bad as those he wants to destroy. He frees himself from Batman, and falls to his death.
Probably because it never really delves into the politics, this remains a good, solid suspense story.
