    But is the speeded up ageing out? If you really go by the original Comics, Batman and Thalia met the first time in the Bronze Age, at this point Dick was already 18 and in collage.
    If "Son of the Demon" is roughly set around the same time as the ongoing Batman comics at the time, Damian was born around the time when Jason was Robin.

    I find it still questionable how effective it is to start with Training at such a young age.
    On the other hand, if you consider all the absurd stuff Damian learned at that age, than two years of training by Batman are probably also much more than just "very very low level basics", it doesn't really make much sense to apply "realism" to the training of one Batkid and ignore it with the other.

    The accelerated ageing is out and the last Time line we were given has Damian being born the year Tim became Robin which lines up with your logic.

    Damian isn't normal. he was genetically enhanced so what's possible for him isn't the same for bruce and the other Robins.

    Even if he wasn't are you trying to compare the intensity or level of training that the Robins received to what Cass and Damian endured [because that is the only correct word]

    Dude come on. Ive never read about the Robins having to master being alert whilst sleeping because bodyguards were offered incentives to kill you .

    I'm not applying realism you are forgetting that it's canon that Talia tampered with Damian in vitro in her quest to create a perfect human.

    This is before we take into account the upgrades he had later in life like that unbreakable spine

    batman's training never pushed the Robins to the limits that Cain and the loa did.

    Batman is abusive and does questionable things [especially recently] but he never went that far

    I think Dick most likely has the same level of training as Bats just based on how long he has been active and a bat.
    Didn't it take Batman years to master the techniques he has no way the untrained Robins-to-be had that time to master the same skills.
    Tim also might be close being with batman so long.

    I'm not sure how his Suicide Squad book is doing sales wise but if he keeps making money for Dc then they might reward him with a title of his choice.

    Surprised it's not Harley.

    I wouldn't mind a Damian and harley team up.
    If WB and AT&T are calling the shots then it might matter how well comics sell since they are not the most lucrative

    Meh. I've been basically stuck since January 7th because of ankle surgery. The rest of the world is now just joining me.

    I just want him a teenager. For ever and ever.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I don't know why, but I found it hilarious! xD #FansConfuson... SO relatable!

    With the rythm the whole plot goes, I hope we will live to that day...! Hopefully in this decade! xD (I am waiting for Damian's and Djinn's kiss for a year.... xD ).......

    Quote Originally Posted by dietrich View Post

    While it is a bit dissapointing, because it won't be as much fun as it is with the rest of the batboys and their romances, it is better... Imagine to have another "Barbara vs Starfire" war....
    Also... Do you think (apart from Raven, Emiko and Djinn) that Damian will be attracted only to criminals or women similar to Selina?

    Katana and Djinn are fans reading into things
    You mean Djinn isn't an actual crush or that it is a ship that is given to the fans ready?
    The national exams for entering the uni are now just a breath away. So, I am going offline for approximately 2 months! If you mention my name or answer to any of my posts and I don't answer, please do not feel insulted! 🙂 With love, 🕉️

    Don't think so. Unlike Bruce Damian doesn't have any sympathy for criminals, even kid or woman criminals.

    Me too. Even though adult Damian Al-Ghul is not bad Green suits him so much. I hope when or if Damian graduates from Robin and pick his own hero (or maybe antihero) identity, his costume will have green themed.

    Well, Dick is blue, Jason is red, Tim is...brown? So Green works for Damian quite well.

    Yep. My guy been pimping since becoming KF. Tanya was another, and is sometimes flirty with, Avery.

    Glad Emi's crush on Nightwing is still remembered and every time she stands next to Damian, it just looks awkward because of the height difference. A 13 year old boy under 5 feet. Grow!

    Not barely, they argue quite a bit. Going by memory all the relevant interactions with Emi n KF. First 3 issues as the new team all they did was argue.

    #20 Emi shoots an arrow through his phone, calls him an idiot, and a distraction.
    #21 Argues over how to deal with Gizmo
    #22 Emi scolds KF the whole issue, and blames him for Roundhouse's "death"
    #24 Emi smiles at him while pulling a rod out of his leg, KF then saves her as they're fallen through the collapsing building. KF teasing her for not getting a thank you.
    #29 Argue over the prison, later tells KF the "team" needs him.
    #30 More arguing over the prison. Emi holds her bow and arrow to his face. KF asks is she gonna kill him too? Emi eventually tells him if he's so self righteous why didn't he use his speed to stop her from shooting, Deathstroke? Reading between the lines almost seemed like she hoped he would. Could possibly tie to the fear.
    #33 Emi felt KF was the least likely to be the traitor. In fact last on her list.
    #36 While KF is bummed about RH's betrayal and powers were out of wack, Emi shows some concern and suggests maybe meditation. KF brushes it off, while Roundhouse asks does she still think about Deathstroke's "death" while suggesting KF probably does. Emi denies carrying about what KF thinks. Could also maybe tie into the fear later on.
    #37 They're about to drown, admit they care about each other. Accepting their fate, hold hands as they sink into the water.
    #40 Well.. what we saw.

    All of that can be interpreted differently by readers. All I know is if this is what Glass wanted then he should've spent even more time on it as he did with the other three.
