Grant Morrison Cover Band

Ah, the holidays.  A wonderful time to remember the important things.  Like spending time with family, enjoying old traditions, and catching up on egregious amounts of comic book reading.

I had the opportunity to catch up on Grant Morrison's recent run on Batman and Robin.  I loved it.  It was a lot of fun, and also a sort of coda to the pre-New 52 continuity of Batman.

But I also enjoyed reading Grant Morrison's run on New X-Men in the early 00's, and I couldn't help but notice a few... similarities.  Perhaps he thought there wouldn't be enough Marvel/DC readership crossover to notice?

Like I said, I enjoyed the run.  But I also enjoyed these plot points the first time around in New X-Men.  Below is an infographic of a few of the plot similarities:
