The Next Batman Shows How Gotham Corrupted Lucius Fox’s Family

The Next Batman: Second Son #7 just showed how corrupt Gotham’s most important family can really be when it comes to saving their own kin.

WARNING: The following contains spoilers for The Next Batman: Second Son #7, by John Ridley, Travel Foreman, Norm Rapmund, Deron Bennett and Rex Lokus, on sale now.

The Next Batman: Second Son has painted the Fox family in a somewhat unfavorable light. Lucius seems to be having a mental breakdown after Punchline poisoned him during Joker War, and his wife, Tanya, is pushing legislation that will outlaw masks, as seen in Future State.

The family hopes to make Gotham a safe zone, and they believe that outlawing vigilantes will place the public at lesser risk, a position that the newly elected Mayor Nakano has made his platform . However, the latest issue of Second Son gives a glimpse of possible corruption infiltrating Gotham’s most powerful family.

When Lucius had it out with Tim/Jace after he got back from Vietnam as a mercenary, the patriarch of the Fox family used resources to cover up a mysterious crime Jace committed. With a trial approaching, it seems Tanya Fox is following in her husband’s footsteps to keep certain things under wraps.

She approaches the new commissioner, Renee Montoya, and tells the former vigilante to play ball by sealing some evidence in Jace’s case regarding Enrique Acevedo. Montoya gets snarky as she mentions how powerful and influential the Fox family has become with the Wayne fortune, obviously incensed by the fact that Tanya is being hypocritical. It’s a tense showdown but Tanya makes it clear that if the court order is violated, Montoya’s job will be in serious jeopardy.

Tanya’s actions might be a little more understandable considering that she has had to deal with the stress of her daughter being in the hospital and the racially motivated attacks against her family online. However, the stresses of her life do not make her actions any less reprehensible.

Jace certainly will not be proud once he discovers what his mother has done. He takes the stand, but as much as he wants to tell the truth, having his mom by his side on the case could be detrimental. She’s one of the best lawyers around but her shady actions foreshadow her partnership with the Magistrate and Nakano, as was seen in Gotham’s future.

The future Batman is noble in his own way, and would not approve of his mother’s actions. He’s already told his parents that he doesn’t want their help or to taint the family name, but it seems like he’s going to be in for a rude awakening sooner rather later, especially once the full truth is exposed.
