Batman #21 is out tomorrow and is a hell of a read. Spoilers follow. They are obscured, however the accompanying text is not. Please only read ahead if you do not mind spoilers. I can say that The Button starts out with a bang!

There is a major hockey game going on Gotham between Gotham and Metropolis.
We see Saturn Girl remembers it.
The hockey game is in the back ground of much of the story and kind of frames what is to come. Also, notice the not too hidden poster in the background. Could this be why Saturn Girl is here?
Meanwhile, in the Batcave….
Batman twiddles the Button while the game is on in the back ground.
Again, hockey, we see what Saturn Girl knew about. I am sure this will play out more later. They focused a lt on the game so it must be connected in some way.
Batman drops the button and it has a reaction to Psycho-Pirates mask.
A big reaction
The results are Batman sees…..
Batman calls Flash for help but he is a little busy….
A few seconds later Batman hears the Flash….
Well, a Flash…..
The fight ensues
Reverse Flash gives more than he gets.
You will notice the time stamps, half the issue takes place over the one minute while Batman is waiting for the Flash to arrive.
Reverse Flash finds a letter….
And being a jerk….
Triumphant, Reverse Flash moves on to the mystery of the Button.
Not sure if it was the Button doing it, or the fact that it had a reaction to the Psycho-Pirates mask, but we get this. Wonder who the “blue, electrical” God Reverse Flash could be referring to….
But seeing it doesn’t seem to work out for him. Oh, and Flash shows up.
Thoughts? Cannot wait for Flash #21 now for part 2.
