I still do not understand a lot of the new 52 Batman stuff... How the [frick] does Batman have a 12 year old son and 4 Robins if he's only been Batman since like 2005 or 2006?

Literally makes ZERO sense, even for a comic book.

I still don't know dick graysons relation to Bruce. He was never adopted by him I've heard which is why when it was revealed dick gtayson was nightwing it meant nothing to the public.

Cover almost looks like Batman is knocking the shit out of Robin.

@ArmoredAsgardian
Very little about the New 52 makes sense. 4 Robins in 5 years? There is basically no continuity at DC anymore. It's every writer for himself. That's how in a two year period, we ended up with 3 different Amazo origins, 3 different Penguin origins, 2 different Jason Todd origins, 2 Lobo origins, 2 Creeper origins, 2 LEGION origins, 3 different first meetings between Batman and Superman, a Morgan Edge who is sometimes black and sometimes white, a Damien that ages 4 years in supposedly one year, a Grey avatar in Earth2/Black avatar on Earth1, and characters who miraculously show up two places at once during the same storyline.
I think something broke over there, and they just realized that their newer, younger audience just doesn't care about continuity.

I'm thinking they are killing off Dick Grayson with Forever Evil and I'm not pleased about it!
jimdotbeep - 1/24/2014, 9:29 PM
The story looks interesting despite all the Forever Evil Bullshit. though I have to ask who the artist for this the art in this sucks, which isn't that surprising considering they're having Bruce Drawn to look like Asslick.
jimdotbeep - 1/24/2014, 9:32 PM
Also I should probably mention That they have already killed of Damian and Batwoman there are only so many members of the Bat-Family they can kill off before there are none left.

Wow that Robin costume Grayson is wearing is awesome!

So they removed the speedo and pixie boots from continuity with the reboot? Cool. Every time I saw that old outfit, I imagined Batman looking at him trying it on and saying "now arch your back. Yeeessssss, that's nice! Now pout!"

@ArmoredAsgadian, i was the same. I read red hood and the outlaws before reading any of the 52 batman stuff and there's a bit where kori remembers in a few flashback panels, dick Grayson being nightwing and not even any of the recent incarnations of nightwing , he was wearing that horrible 80s high collered blue and yellow outfit. I thought hold on bats has been operating for 5 years and in that time he's had 4 robins plus nihghtwing traveled back to the 80s?!?! Come on DC sort out your continuity!!!!
rabid - 1/25/2014, 8:52 AM
The worst thing about the DC reboot IMO was when they erased all the tiny clues dropped that Jason Todd was the long lost son of the Joker. What a waste!

Definitely want to pick this up.

Always up for some old school dynamic duo with Dick Grayson the original Robin.
