Story by Bob Haney, Art by Neal Adams

A kid named Lance shows up, and is rude to Alfred.

I can't even believe Bruce falls for this, especially the 'Fuzz', but love the sitcom Dad look.

Alfred makes his feelings known.

I really like the way the Titans work here.

Lance sees Robin's sacrifice and learns the true meaning of family and respect. He apparently strips Robin, puts on his costume and takes a bullet for Batman. So Batman gets to watch Robin 'die' twice in one night!

And Lance gets a statue out somewhere on the grounds of Wayne Manor.

IGN is doing a poll re: Which Flash do you like best?

It's hardly scientific, but is kind of interesting.

I'd love to see the results if they do one for Batgirl.

OMG, so much greatness in this story.

First, that they neatly take care of Lance by killing him off with all his knowledge because nobody really wants Dick to have a brother, right? Especially one who's a rat? (If you've read BftC #2...Lance has got a ways to go to beat Jason there.) Don't ask me how that flimsy looking cape is actually protective.

Then there's the lingo--swinging, zing, and best of all dig. Dick digs Bruce.

Then there's Bruce's great testaments of love for everybody. Lance's dad is the best he ever knew. Except his dad who was the bestest best! And Dick means more to him than anything in life! And Bruce is just the greatest guy ever--just ask Dick! Awwww!

Also Dick getting in trouble for Lance's antics. Honestly, not since Opie Taylor has a kid's father been more willing to believe the worst of a kid with better character.

Also, Bruce's costume still seems to be in its plastic bag from the dry cleaners.

And that Bruce is like, "Get yourself together, young man! We risk both our lives every night! I can't have a crimefighting partner who plays crinkle fender with my new car!

Well, in fairness, it's not like Bruce doesn't have an example to draw on...

I forgot--I also love the way Bruce seems to have a portrait of his dad with a disapproving look on his face, I guess so he can look down on Bruce when Bruce feels he's been naughty.

Oh god, yes. I just outed myself as a totally non-hep cat with that typo!!! The Teen Titans would be so ashamed of me.
