Welcome to today’s edition of the Eye for Detail. Today the Eye looks to Fighting 118th member Fritzkrieg and his Batman Knightfall Azbat custom figure.
To be honest I had known very little about the Azbat so I decided to use google.
Azrael (Azbat) from Wikipedia. – The character first appeared in the series Batman: Sword of Azrael, as Jean-Paul Valley, in 1992. He then became a supporting character in the monthly Batman titles, eventually taking over the role of Batman through the “Knightfall”, “Knightquest”, and “KnightsEnd” story arcs. Writer/co-creator Denny O’Neil admitted to difficulty with Azrael’s transition from villain to hero: “If I’d known he was to become a monthly character, I might have set him up differently … The problem is that I had to turn a bad guy into a real hero, not just an anti-hero or lead. It’s possible to do that, but it’s difficult to retain the original characterization. You almost have to change his personality.”
