Batman and The Monster Men - Continuity


This story and its sequel, Batman and the Mad Monk take place in between Batman: Year One and Batman: The Man Who Laughs. Jim Gordon has recently been promoted to Captain and Peter Grogan has just replaced the corrupt, Mob-affiliated Gillian "Gil" Loeb as Police Commissioner.

One of Batman's early encounters with a villain known as "The Red Hood" occurs some time shortly before this story begins, indicated by the fact that a newspaper headline depicted on the opening page reads: "Red Hood Gone? Eyewitnesses claim mystery thief falls to doom after Ace Chemical heist attempt foiled by run-in with vigilante Bat-Man". The incident at Ace Chemical, depicted as flashbacks in Batman: The Killing Joke, transformed the Red Hood into The Joker, who makes his first appearance in The Man Who Laughs.

Instead of being an actress as in her Golden Age incarnation, Julie is a freshly graduated law student.

Jim Gordon is shown to still be married to his first wife, Barbara Kean-Gordon, who leaves him shortly after the events of Batman: The Long Halloween and returns to him in Batman: Dark Victory.

Famous quotes containing the word continuity:

    Only the family, society’s smallest unit, can change and yet maintain enough continuity to rear children who will not be “strangers in a strange land,” who will be rooted firmly enough to grow and adapt.
    Salvador Minuchin (20th century)

    There is never a beginning, there is never an end, to the inexplicable continuity of this web of God, but always circular power returning into itself.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Continuous eloquence wearies.... Grandeur must be abandoned to be appreciated. Continuity in everything is unpleasant. Cold is agreeable, that we may get warm.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)
