The story itself was kinda "meh," and it took a second to figure out what exactly was being implied here, but still--FEELS. ;_;

What is being implied here? Where did Damian retrieve the pearl from?

A few issues back (I think it was the Night of the Owls crossover), we saw Damian searching the sewers for something when Alfred called up the family, and I think we see it another time too. The idea is that Damian's been looking for the missing pearls that fell off Martha's necklace the night Bruce's parents were murdered.

"Never again" would work better as an argument if he hadn't taken on two Robin's since then.

I think that the idea is that he took on all of the Robins at the same time, more or less. With the exceptions of Damian, who came up more recently, and Steph, who doesn't exist anymore.

Umm, no, I've seen nothing to suggest he had more than one Robin at any one time. He only had them for a year at a time in the New 52, but Dick left, Hason came on board, Jason died, Tim came into Bruce's life (as Red Robin from the outset), then Damian came along.

Might you be confusing it with the much more enjoyable take on that concept

After the teen titans retcon and the removal of Spoiler Damian is the first post Jason Robin isn't he?

Only if one accepts the farcical claptrap that Tim was not a Robin because he used the near identical name "RED Robin"... because that's SO different from "Robin"... and it's not like Red Robin would conjure up images of a blood covered Robin which after Jason would be an even WORSE name to use.

Tim served as Batman's sidekick/partner wearing a predominantly red/black and yellow costume and used the name Robin (With a prefix), saying that he wasn't Robin is an absurd piece of sophistry from DC which makes not one bloody lick of sense.

"You're ten years old, damn it... wow, I never realized how stupid that was until I said it out loud. I'm sending a ten year old out to fight killers, many of whom have superpowers. And this isn't the first time, either. What the hell was I thinking?"

Eh, in the YJverse Batman started Dick crimefighting when he was NINE, though in that case it was more to ensure he got quick closure for his parents death and didn't end up turning into Bruce later in life.

I've always liked the versions of canon with much younger Robins best. Bruce adopting a Dick who is nearly an adult already just does not explain the relationship the two of them have. I give both Jason and Tim a little leeway to be older (14 or 15) but to me the original Batman and Robin bond is the most interesting when Dick is 12 or younger starting out.

Because of the bugfuck crazy but sort of endearing things about Bruce is that he thinks of Robin as his partner, not his sidekick, and what kind of grown-ass man thinks of a 10-14 year old boy as his equal?

Well Bruce is kind of a manchild in a lot of ways...

10-14 year-olds trained by a master of assassins from birth, and with who knows what knowledge stuffed into them by various technological means while still in the artificial womb - that counts as 'not a child'.

I don't think Batman thinks of his Robins as 'partners' (with the possible exception of previous-universe Tim, in his last year as Red Robin), but as apprentices. They are there to learn from him, to take over for him on the day that some thug gets lucky and empties a shotgun in Bruce's mouth.

As Paul Pope pointed out in his Solo story



I love the line "If you had to have one kid on your side in a fight this would be the one you'd want"... which begs the question of WHY you'd want a kid on your side in a fight.

I really dislike mid-story art changes, but this looks like a pretty decent story.

It's been really jarring in this issue especially. You seriously go from Damian looking about 14 and chiseled in one panel to him being round-faced and grinning the next. It's like a flashback.

Dini did a good job. Though he does a good job with the majority of the Bat Clan and their foes.

Maybe because it's early in the morning here, but I have no complaints. But sad Bruce and Damian faces will get me every time.
