Gail Simone Defends the “Martha” Scene from Batman v Superman


Comic book writer Gail Simone, who is best known for her Wonder Woman and the New 52 Batgirl run, went on to Twitter defend the “Martha” scene in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, she states that while the scene may be a bit weird, she will defend it.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is one of the most polarizing comic book films to come out in the last few years and in the genre period. It was a financial success, but critically bashed, with fan opinion being mostly split.

One of the more talked about scenes both positively and negatively was the infamous “Martha” scene where Superman thinking he may die uses his final words to ask Batman to “Save Martha. ” Knowing Batman is a good guy who has lost his way due to his fear, it’s not until Lois tells Batman that its his mother’s name does he snap out of his rage.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me
