As Dick finds out what happened to Raymond/Saiko years before

Odd that Dick doesn't seem to be using his escrima sticks, they'd be useful when fighting someone with hand blades, no?

But anyway....

The raw rat diet is looking pretty good by comparison.

The Court of Owls are indeed bastards of the first water! (I may have my little quirks, but that's too extreme for me thanks)

over all I'm tired of villains blaming heroes for what other villains did to them

DC is doubling down on some tired old tropes and it's bugging me.

I could not agree more. This trope must wither and die. It's like blaming the weather man for the time you were mugged buying an umbrella.

It's stupid and contrived. Dick didn't do anything! If this guy hates what these people did to him he should be going after them and see Dick as mere obstacle.

you know, I don't think anyone even does the obvious swerve, which is villain pretends to do his boss' bidding then reveals the conspiracy to the hero to make the real villain pay.

I can see Atomic Robo doing that to a recurring villain. Not Doctor Dinosaur, of course, but it would be wonderful to see a villain blaming the hero for his own incompetence/obsessions/whatever and the hero casually calling him on it.

Least we still have that idiot woman from Superman: Grounded as lower bound barometer for stupid blaming in comics.

I think that they're trying to play off the notion of survivor's guilt--Dick having escaped from an abusive situation, but not rescued Raymond from it--but I don't know that it really translates well to this situation.

Yeah. How is this Dick's fault, that this happened to him?
