    I like Tobey Maguire more than Andrew Garfield in the role of Spider-Man

    Finally got to read this one. I thought it was pretty good. It was interesting to see a criminal version of Batman. Wrath was pretty violent here by beating up Alfred, considering his childhood and the fact his parents were criminals and were killed. Tying Commissioner Gordon in this plot was also interesting, and it was a nice twist that he ended up killing Wrath's parents.

    The only complaints were the unnecessary sub-plot involving the mob boss's daughter falling in love with Wrath, and his costume's coloring being a little off. Other than that, it was pretty good.

    Still, Wrath has nothing on the first and original anti-Batman: Killer Moth!
