Which doesn't actually happen in the main Infinite Crisis book, it happens here. In a way, you can see it coming. Ted does. But it is definitely a rough scene. Especially for his internal monologue in the previous scenes. But the story just gets moving with his death. It comes out that Batman has been conducting secret surveillance on Earth's heroes, because of the mind wiping revealed in Identity Crisis. It's a logical follow up. Batman is pretty damn paranoid, and you could say that he has trust issues. The long and short is that it's actually quite well-written, and the art is pretty good, too. Oddly, the Superman: Sacrifice trade has a hefty part of this storyline, which isn't included here. Probably just should have been one, larger trade, instead of two. And you need to read both to get it all, or even to fully understand what's going on here.
