A Legal Analysis of Bruce Wayne as a Potential Juror. Also, Batman Fights a Giant Squid.

Let's take a looksee at Batman #11, where we learn that Bruce Wayne is (to no one's surprise), one of the last people you'd ever want on your jury if you were a criminal defendant:

"I'm going to be on the convicting end of the law!"

That's a downright scary thing for someone to think about jury duty.  The man knows nothing about what the allegations are (jurors don't know what case they'll be sitting on beforehand), but he's already got a conviction in his mind.  And it's not that I don't understand where that's coming from, considering his history what with seeing his parents murdered, but... no.  The defense would like to thank Mr. Wayne for his time and ask that he be stricken for cause.

Enough legal blah-blah.  Let's see him fight a giant squid!:

That's so awesome that I'm willing to overlook the fact that Batman was able to speak underwater!

See you tomorrow, if the Fates allow!

Not to mention the squid looks more like an octopus...until the "parrot-like beak" panel. That one has "What? Me research?" written all over it.
