In Batman/Superman#42 (no specific spoilers here) Bats actually did something with HF's staff, although he had no idea of what he was doing! Supes was grateful, to say the least. But it begs the question...what happened and why? Desaad only used the staff for energy projection. What up, people? And oh yah, bummer about Bekka. But you never know in the DCU. I thought the character of Bruce was spot on, but it was a little annoying how every relationship he had was made unimportant just to show how raptured he was with Bekka. Undestating a point to make a point, so to speak. Can't help but think that again, this ties into future Crisis.
