So, why on earth in the midst of all this important stuff are we pausing to hear from, of all people, Joe Coyne, the Penny Plunder?
Is Joe Coyne, who is the greatest one-shot Batman villain of all time, making a meta-commentary on the End of the DCU as we know it? "Ha! I'm safe, having been electrocuted 60 years ago, yet memorialized forever by the Giant Penny in the Batcave! Now the rest of you mokes are going to be rubbed out by red skies again, while my Giant Penny remains!"
Whatever he means, it's pretty important since he takes the trouble to say it ... in haiku.
- So long! Here's two cents--
- That's all your lives will be worth
- in a little while!
What haiku can you compose to explain Joe's taunts, comfort us during the End Times, or link Joe to the events of Infinite Crisis in a crossover?
Give us your two cents!
