The preview of Earth 2 Annual #2 shows the first Earth 2 Batman investigating the Falcone family. I thought this was an interesting choice to add the mob family created in the 1980s to Golden Age inspired Earth 2. When I downloaded the book this morning from Comixology the family’s name was Francavilla.
Considering that part of the story takes place in the 1970s I figured Tom Taylor had to come up with another name crime name and gave a not to Francesco Francavilla’s awesome "Batman 1972" blog post.
I thought that was interesting enough to put up on New Earth 2 but when I went to take screenshot the name had been updated from Falcone back to Francavilla. I’m guessing it was Tom Taylor’s original idea to have the family name Francavilla and it was an editorial change. Interesting.
If anyone has a screenshot let me know!
UPDATE: Bleeding Cool has posted a picture.
I’ll say the book was a great read. I’m going to go into more thoughts after the jump but be forewarned there are New Earth 2 Batman SPOILERS!!!!!
