"the ultimate showdown between DC’s fiercest rivals!"

This has literally never been the case. Not ever.

"Think about it, Batman. Who's your fiercest rival?"
"Green Arrow."
"No, it's not!"
"Okay, Superman."
"Superman's not your rival."
"Then I would say I don't have a greatest rival. I have a few people I spar with on a recurring basis."
"What?!"
"I like to fight around."

That is a wonderfully apt reference.

...What? Even if I personally would be happy to see Damien Wayne removed as Bruce's biological son, this feels like an odd way to do this.

Although considering this on Deathstroke's own title raises more questions on who will ultimately win.

Yeah, as much as I'd love to see Damian getting punched right in the bloodline ego, and it would fit with that 'good and evil is genetic' crap DC keeps pulling, and there's potential for a good storyline based around the fact that Bruces entire family is pretty much adopted by BatDad... I can't see anything good coming of them involving Deathstroke in it. Damn near everything he's touched since they made him the 'uber-badass' in the early 2000s has been an utter mess, and I'm not seeing this being any different.

If it’s actually going to turn out that Damien isn’t Bruce’s kid, shouldn’t this be happening in the main Batman title? At least do something like The Button where the parts alternate between titles.

That is weird and partially makes me think that this is a swerve, but then again why set it up like this? There would be so many other ways to bring Bruce and Slade in to conflict.

Hahahaha this is such a great concept to set off a conflict. I hope it ends like the Rey Mysterio / Eddie Guerrero feud and they just put Damian's custody papers in a suitcase and beat the hell out of each other for it.

Damian not Bruce's biological son? I could get behind that.
