Hmm, Bruce went on a bit of an adopting spree, didn't hee? First Dick, then Tim and Cassandra. Did he end up adopting Jason too? I can't remember.

Good lord. Barbara must be counting her lucky stars that her father is alive and well and she's never had to be ward or otherwise to Bruce. Geebus, Brucie. I know you had the money but did you really have to adopt all of them?

Oh and best description ever of Damien Wayne: murderous fruit of his (Bruce's) loins. HA.

Of course, after he's adopted/procreated, then he done goes and dies. Of course, he didn't really die but for most purposes, he's dead. Plus there's a corpse and so obviously he's Dead Dead (tm) even though he's not.

Damn comic books.

So Dick is now Batman though he never wanted to be Batman and Bruce pretty much told him not to be Batman. Then a bunch of stuff happened so basically Dick had to become Batman and chose his adopted-father's-real-murderous-loin-fruit as Robin while Tim-my-surname-is-now-Wayne AKA Red Robin goes hunting for proof that Bruce is alive SOMEWHERE.

All of which begs the question whether Dick goes by Dick Wayne or Dick Grayson. Because, frankly, I like Grayson; Dick Wayne just doesn't flow as well.

I'm honestly wondering how long this Batman Reborn arc will last.

I'm honestly not too disappointed with Dick-as-Batman so much as it always feels Dick-as-Batman rather than Dick-is-Batman. Dick and Tim have always been leaders of their respective teams and a lot of that is thanks to Bruce's influence on them as their mentor. Dick has proven, time and again, to be a great leader in his own right as well as in Bruce's absence and he commands just as much respect being himself than filling Bruce's shoes.

I think my biggest beef with Dick-as-Batman is that, well, now the Trinity is off. I mean, c'mon, Dick-as-Batman sitting up at the Big Table (tm) with Superman and Wonder Woman? Dick doesn't have the same chemistry with Superman and Wonder Woman though I know that in other books, they've both given him a great amount of respect.

Now for the million dollar questions: When is Bruce coming back (because we all know that it is a WHEN not an IF) and in what fucked up way will Jason come back? Because Jason can never stay dead, oh no.
