YMMV: Dark Victory
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: Two-Face escapes from court in broad daylight under Batman's nose with a delicious setup that came out of nowhere.
    Two-Face (interrupting questioning): "What time do you have?"
    Batman (thinking): "Something's wrong. Two-Face is wearing a watch."
    Porter, The New District Attorney: "Two o' Clock"
    Courtroom explodes as Mr. Freeze, Poison Ivy, and Solomon Grundy come bursting through the floor.
    Two-Face: I move for a recess.
  • Even Better Sequel: What a minority sees this Batman story to Long Halloween.
  • Tear Jerker: The conclusion of Mario's role in the story. He really wanted to legitimize the Falcone family, but was thwarted by his sister, and by all the destruction wreaked by the Rogues Gallery. His last appearance in the story is of him burning down the family mansion, and sitting on the front steps with a gut-wrenching expression of defeat. Batman's narration clinches it - "I once believed that the end of the Falcone Organization would come with a broken woman in a wheelchair. I was wrong. It ended with a broken man."
