"Yes, Father. I shall become a dad." Check it!



Apparently the Flashpoint timeline survived beyond the final war. Batman, Flash and Thomas Wayne fend off an attack sent by the Atlantis-Amazon alliance. 







 



In the Treadmill, Flash and Batman consider the fact that sending them to the Flashpoint timeline was a warning/show of force by their unknown enemy.

Suddenly:



"And they've never faced someone like me!"
 
...said Reverse-Flash, before dying all over the Batcave. 

Takeaways:

- "I have a son."  *I have a family. In technicals that's accurate, but come on, Bruce. You're dicking over Dick Grayson here. 

- "Dad, what happened to Mom?" "...Fine! Fine. She's fine."

- I seriously wish they'd actually succeeded into bringing Old Man Wayne back to Earth-Prime. So much story potential.

Any time the text refer to Damian as "the son" it grates on my teeth, BRUCE HAS MORE THAN ONE CHILD!

Especially since as important as family is to Thomas he would be head over heels ecstatic to know Bruce has a whole gang of kids.

Did he adopt Dick, Tim, Jason, and Cass in the New 52/Rebirth ?

DIck (dunno), Tim (was yes, then a no), Jason (yes), and Cassandra (no, but Stephanie was basically calling Bruce and Kate out on it during Victim's Syndicate arc).

You see, that's the thing about post Flashpoint that bothers me the most, the Bat family isn't really the Batman family.

I'm starting to think that if Doctor Manhattan is behind all of this (and I'm not fully convinced yet) then he isn't doing it to hurt the DC heroes, as they keep saying, but more to observe them, trying to see something that reminds him of the realization he had on Mars with Laurie. I mean, Manhattan has to be beyond petty cruelty.

Or maybe I'm just really hungover and spouting gibberish

That's a really interesting take on where this may be going, and I like it.

No, I think you have a really good point.

Doctor Manhattan definitely seems beyond petty cruelty, but that is because he is not altogether human anymore and there is the rub. He might not have any human emotion anymore - like empathy or compassion.

I'm really interested to see how Batman's going to move forward knowing that Thomas wants him to quit.

Pure 2am speculation from me: there's a version of Batman who fights the fight not for his dead parents but to ensure no one else has to suffer as he did. Perhaps that's where it'll go? "I've followed your last wish, father. I don't do this for you... I don't do this for mother... I do this for all those out there who could have suffered, as you did, if I didn't act. For all the children who could have been orphaned, as I was, if I didn't act." I see that working in well with King's take on the character's motivation.

King's run is such a mix of good ideas and horrendously fanboy execution that's hard for me to even gauge how well of an assessment this is of his work :P

Given that's how I feel about all of King's superhero work so far, I couldn't agree more! :)

I think Superheavy, Scott Snyder's last arc before Tom King took over, dealt with Batman coming up with ways to turn himself back into Batman should he ever lose his memory or just decide not to be Batman anymore.

I am legitimately uncomfortable with the attitude the Batbooks have had about adopted children versus blood bonds ever since Damian was introduced. It constantly feels that DC writers are telling that the Bruce/Damian connection is more sacrosant because of that blood connection which is just insanely insensitive.

What makes things so bizarre is that one of the great things about the Bat-mythology before that was the concept of adopted families and how strong they can truly be.

Prior to The LEGO Batman Movie, I don't really remember anyone ever actually calling Dick Grayson as Batman's 'son'; he was always his ward or something similar (even though he was Bruce's adopted child in everything but name).

I really wish Thomas had come with them. Would've been so cool!

Well, what can be said? It was lovely to see Bruce legitimately meet up with Thomas (since apparently Convergence has been more or less wiped out) and the fact that Thomas wants Bruce to live a normal life was both sensible and heartbreaking.

And in regards to Thomas... While I would love to see Thomas continue on past the Flashpoint, placing him on the Prime Earth would be problematic, to say the very least. However, there are plenty of other universes that the good Doctor could toss him if he felt appropriate... Say, Earth-2.

Ever since BATMAN: DEATH AND THE MAIDENS, Thomas Wayne telling Bruce that Batman is a bad idea is surprisingly common.

What issue of Gotham Knights? Issue #16? Sounds like quite a conversation.
