It's very apparent that this garbage was written with very little love or respect for the original characters that it adapts. I imagine that the people who would enjoy reading this are people who aren't actually fans of Batman or his world, as Maria De La Cruz goes out of her way to ensure that Gotham High bares almost no resemblance to it's superior source material.
