But also a nice moment for the Dick-Damian fans out there.





“It’s all about the family and the family going to hell,” said Morrison, who threw in elements of his own parents’ divorce. “The two adults in the story are both culpable. The kid’s the good guy.”

The bit there seems a little too back-patting and congratulatory, more on Morrison's part than the characters, but I do like the little moment of the former Batman & Robin team interacting.

As for the news...the fact that they're talking about it now makes me think that even if he does die, there's a good chance that he'll come back by the end of the story. I mean, we're dealing with antagonists who have magic pools that can raise people from the dead.

All I can think of is, "Reboot to make characters younger. Have Batman have a son who grew up became Robin for two diffferent Batmans and then died in his backstory."

I'll take any Dick/Damian interactions I can get, but the dialogue is very....eh. I like that Damian is stating that Dick is his favorite partner, but the "no matter what anyone thinks" is a little too on the nose.

Yet despite my growing antipathy toward the DCnU, I would read the hell out of a Nightwing and Robin book. Just like I would pick up Flash EVEN IF Wally was only a side character. It really wouldn't be hard for DC to convince me to spend money on their product.

I think that the "No matter what anyone thinks" could just as easily apply to his own family, Tim doesn't like Damian, and whilst Bruce might think that he and Damian are the best, in his heart of hearts even he must realise that Damian worked better with Dick than with him.

And again, we've YET to see the scene where we find out why Damian became Bruce's Robin, instead of working with Dick:

Number of fatalities Damain has inflicted working with Bruce, at least two.

Number of fatalities Damian has inflicted working with Dick, none (AFAIK)

If DC had any sense, they would've not let Morrison kill Damien & rebranded Batman & Robin to make it a a book following Dick & Damien. Or just outright made a Robins book with all 4 Boy Wonders working as a team.

Alas, they don't.

I really dislike that Morrison seems to be aiming to shove Bruce back toward the 'Jason's death' state of mind, frankly. I thought we were meant to be kind of beyond that sort of characterisation for him. And I also dislike the idea that Morrison has set Bruce up to be in a position where he's to blame for something, yet again. Again, that just circles around back to something like Brother I and the OMACs, which were ostensibly his responsibility and frankly, Bruce should already be feeling crappy enough as is because of Cyril's death - this just feels like overegging the omelette.

How I wish I could like this art, but I just... can't. Even if I could manage it generally, the faces are just horribly distorted, with Damian being halfway towards Stewie Griffin, and Dick having such a massive lantern jaw.

Now we know why Snyder's been pushing Harper Row (and why Steph's never been addressed)! When she becomes Robin, they'll probably mention whether she's the first female or not.

Given how often they've stressed there were "only" four Robins in the five year period, not sure how she would be anything else.

I also confess to having no clue who Harper Row is.

So basically, Grant Morrison and DC Comics are all but admitting that Damien Wayne was really "Jason Todd 2.0." The only differences being that Damien proved to be far more of a lovable scamp, had a better character arc, is getting a more heroic death and was intended to be killed off all along instead of having his fate be decided by fans via a hotline number.

Oh, for those wondering if there's going to be another Robin, it's pretty apparent now, thanks to what Scott Snyder was doing, that it's going to be Harper Row.

I'm not even big on Morrison's dialogue at times, but so much agreement on the art. I know Burnham was likely hand-picked by Morrison himself, but.. Seriously. It does make the book look like the ugly duckling of the Batman books, especially compared to Gleason and Capullo, frankly.

I agree with poor Emp there. *sigh* is exactly what I did when I heard this news. Again, Morrison should, theoretically, already be piling on the blame for Bruce because of the death of Cyril - a crimefighter who has looked up to Batman since he was the Squire and his dad was the Knight. Shouldn't that be enough guilt, if you're going to have it in the first place? Again, it just reeks of overegging the omelette, frankly, and I say that not even liking Damian that much as a character.

My reaction..I'm at a point where I'm not even angry anymore. Yes this greatly displeases me but...I'm over it. That is sad when you don't even have it in you to rage anymore because you're not surprised. In a way I saw this coming. As much as I love Damian..something just told me. Personally I am tired of the comic companies spoiling these big things and leaking them to media, then hyping the shit out of them instead of allowing for surprise reactions. The fact that they hype it so much only tells me it's a trolling effort and either the opposite will end up happening or it will just be undone very soon. The only time I actually believed it is when Ultimate Spider-Man's death was announced because in the Ultimate, say what you want, love it, hate it, it can be pretty damn consistent and people stay dead.

This is the first time I see so many of my friends on Weibo shocked and raging over a plot. And half of them only started reading DC comics around the n52 reboot. I used to be the only one in the group unhappy about the reboot. And now there are others considering dropping DC at least for a while. I don't really think this is the same rage and sadness Chris Burnham says they are hoping for.
