After all the build up the Dark Knights got, this page is the last we see of them. What a let down

We don't need to see more about them, we know about their origins and we know what they wanted.

And what they wanted would only have been possible if the bad guys won, so of course we are not going to see the ''end of their story'' since the end of their story means the end for the good guys.

They got a lot of ''screentime'' already.

no, they didn't. I wanted to see some sort of conclusion to their stories, something what would change their mind and help them find a peace. Or at least see them dying in interesting way.

But instead we got nothing and DC used them to sell this shitty event in the first place.

all roads lead to nothing

They were working for a being that desired to annihilate the entirety of the Multiverse and then some, user. I don't know what you were expecting really.

what you were expecting really

Well, i expected it to be shit, with overpowered villains losing one final battle, despite winning in every other instance, just because.

What i was hoping for is that they will do something interesting with those evil bats, cause why would you create 7 special books with backstories for characters, only to forget about them later? But ok, you can't write anything interesting about them, why can't you at least kill them off in some "metal" way? I don't think Ares Batman even was in that last book.

And those characters were only reason why somebody, anybody would care about this event at all, cause what else? Barbatos? Hawkman? Nobody cares about them.

WTF did Babatos even do in the comic? He's a completely superfuous, void of characterization high concept given a generic physical form that did jackshit and then was defeated with a handwave. And all Hawkman did was be revealed to have been turned into a giant monster who stood around with a hammer, then spent his screen time doing nothing until he remember who he really was and then, again, did nothing, and the epilogue just tells us he decided to write some stories while sleeping a lot on his bed.

with a handwave
Power or love and friendship
And all Hawkman did was be revealed to have been turned into a giant monster who stood around with a hammer, then spent his screen time doing nothing until he remember who he really was and then, again, did nothing
Again, you aspie fuck, Hawkman was turned into a ethereal destroyer of worlds, turned into a forger lifegiver and battled Barbatos to a standstill
and the epilogue just tells us he decided to write some stories while sleeping a lot on his bed.
He got glimpses of the changes the JL made in the universe while they were connected to the cosmic matter making all of creation and in a moment of madness and prophecy wrote it all down

Congratulations, you're too illiterate for a Scott Snyder comic book.

What.
What happened with the giant gun pointed at Earth?
They used it, bringing Earth down to the dark multiverse.
What happened with the Ancient Atlantean targeting machine under Atlantis?
There was no targeting machine in Atlantic, just some hidden Nth Metal and evidence that Atlantis founders collaborated with the Tribe of Bat or whatever you call it, years back. Aquaman and Deathstroke got ambushed and captured getting that Metal.

Maybe you just skipped #5, or forgot because of the delay between 5 and 6.

So did they even address the huge role Barbatos was shown having in Batman's origins in the finale or is that just going to be swept under the rug like it was just a bad dream and never happened
He was upstaged hard by The Batman who Lmaos and he was defeated so easily they even acknowledged it in universe and at the end we got absolutely no actual answer as to whether he was telling the truth, or how Bruce feels about this life-changing revelation, or anything, really. They didn't even give any indication that it was supposed to be up to interpretation.
I knew Metal was going to end in a big dumb unsatisfying climax but with how this story kept teasing and teasing Barbatos and using a lot of old Batman fan theories as well as the groundwork laid in Dark Knight Dark City and Morrison's run you'd think we'd get something, anything at all. It's like they just forgot what they were writing.

Jacob Sanders

This is where I realized this was basically DC's equivalent of Fear Itself with Batman meets Forever Evil, only ten times more dumber because FI was a Cap/Thor crossover turned into a mega-event and Forever Evil had at least a simple and well structured story, where as this was from the start a giant mega-event and 90% of it consists of "bad guys succeed because that's the only way the plot can move forward. Plus here's some barely connected random shit happening in the background, like Gotham turning into a fantasy reality because swords and sorcery is METAL!!" and then everything is resolved in the end by a plot device, and nothing ever had any stakes.

Kayden Lopez

no, i didn't.

Batman lost itself was pointless, cause in the end Batman was saved by evil supes, who stupidly wearing kryptonite glow and not by his own actions in that nightmare.

the nice closed loop of Batman Lost
What closed loop are you talking about?
That story ended with Barbatos showing Bruce a lot of "truths" about his role behind his origin and Bruce giving in and not wanting to see any further, the same hopeless climax we got in every issue of Metal and the same fake-out we get in a lot of these "EVERYTHING YOU KNEW IS WRONG HERE IS THE REAL STORY BEHIND THINGS" stories Snyder loves to write.
And that's it?
Are they seriously not going to address this absolutely huge introduction to Batman's story and instead just leave it at that?
Are we just supposed to pretend this never happened and that years worth of speculation and mystery amount to a half-baked "Yes" that is never addressed again and might as well have never even happened?

you just don't get it bruh it was too deep you missed the point
If you are gonna try and argue something like "you are supposed to ignore Barbatos because Batman's history isn't defined by him and he's been defeated" or "it's a mystery so it's not supposed to make sense" please don't waste both of our times with such a meaningless answer.
I'm just trying to figure out what the fuck is the deal with Barbatos in the end since they kept changing his background all the time and in the end they didn't seem to care enough to finishing writing it.

There will always be more Batmen. More Elseworld Batmen, Batman of the Future, more Batman of Legend, Batmen of Alternate timelines, Legacy Batmen, Bat-Sons and Bat-Daughters, Bat-Pets and Bat-Mites. Twisted Nega-Batmen and Bizarro-Batmen.

If WB and DC know one thing, it's that Batman equals monies. There's no point in whining about these Batmen.

Barbatos was infecting Batman's psyche with defeatist self-defeating Dark Multiverse fantasies, the long speech in the mirror by the end was just a repeat of the Hole In All Things from Morrison, which is true and essential to the Batman fantasy. What more do you want?

With "address the huge role Barbatos was shown having in Batman's origins ", do you mean you want the Hole In All Things nice little theme murdered and dissected in exposition, or would you rather have Batman time travel back to his Year One origin to a one man monologue against a dead bat, The Happening style?

What do you want explained, sweetie? I need legible questions if you want legible answers.

the long speech in the mirror by the end was just a repeat of the Hole In All Things from Morrison, which is true and essential to the Batman fantasy
The Hole In All Things, like most things Grant Morrison does, is a simplistic concept masked in repetition of wordy lingo and fakedeep nonsense. It was a term Morrison used repeteadly to define literal and abstract personifications of evil (Darkseid and Hurt) that could always displace and affect the natural order of things, a.k.a evil in opposition of good. It's not even really a particularly abstract or open to interpretation concept, it's made pretty crystal clear and drilled into your head repeteadly.
And while I have no doubt Snyder clearly was trying as hard as possible to recreate Morrison's themes and etc in Metal, Barbatos as a concept is older than Metal and even Morrison's run. Barbatos stands in for something else entirely and even Morrison defined this clearly by setting up Hurt and Barbatos as different beings.

But you don't seem to be interested in discussing anything so let's not waste our time any longer.

METAL was hot garbage that should’ve happened in the early 90s and died there. It’s a giant toy commercial written by a mentally handicapped subhuman Morrison wannabe.
