Did you get the second issue of Batman and Robin?  Did you like it as much as the first?  What's up with this strange circus and what happened to Mr. Toad?  Do you think Dick can keep Damian in line?  What do you think of this new Dynamic Duo?

Yes

No, but only by a small margin

I think they are playing the circus theme to much and i think it is to played out. I like new villains but for them to bring in a circus villain right when Dick takes over is just to planned out even for comics.

Yea but im interested in seeing how dick will get damiens respect. also curious as to who damien plans on having train him.

I think it is a good start to a great possible story arch. cant wait for the next one

no one likes Damien that much. And dude I thought Damien was like 12 or 13, but 10?!


The fight scenes were good though Dick and Damien are kicking butt.

How can this get a lower rating than Captain America Rebirth. At least this makes sense. This issue was really cool and Damian kicks ass. Commissioner Gordon doesn't seem to like Dick much. Like when Bruce first died and Nightwing showed up for the Batsignal, he seems to complain about everything Dick does including taking the stairs to get to the Batmobile.

Not a fan of Damian. He may be Ras Al Ghul's grandson and Bruce's son but he's far too arrogant. To the points it's annoying but I guess the writer's do that to show he's has a lot to learn.

I surprisingly don't really mind Damian. You have to consider how he was raised.  He's probably had the League of Assassins as his nannies or babysitters.  Look at what he does to that big dude (?).  He was able to immobilize him, knowing perfectly well the exact locations to throw the batarangs.  As far as his cockiness, perhaps after the beating he gets here, he'll start changing his tune.

People act like he has no reason for him to be arrogant or cocky. He is going to grow up to  be the Batman version of Prince Vegeta.

You know, I think I'm crazy, because I actually sorta like Richard better as Batman than Bruce.

We're not supposed to like Damien. That's the clever thing about him, it's like real life, we don't get on with or like everyone we meet. That's good writing from Morrison. I like there are people in the book we don't like.

Damian is no more the asshole than Bruce was and he is no more a whiney Robin than Dick was Robin, Damian does some to have respect for him and Alfred in Batman #666 where he kills two of the villians in this issue in that one.

I think making Damien 10 years old is a little too young ....
He seems quite intelligent for a 10 year old, even if he is a jerk.

Atleast 14 or 13 would be a better age.. -_-

I'm glad it wasn't just me that was unaware of his age.  I thought he was like 13.  I wasn't sure if I just forgot his age being mentioned.  But since Grant is the one that brought him back into continuity, I guess he can determine the age.  A ten year old with ninja/assassin training...that is scary though.

I've said it before, I absolutely LOVE the relationship between Dick and Damien. I couldnt even see Bruce taming Damien, so how the hell is Dick going to?

I hate Guietly,  and if you can't control a 10 year old how can you control being Batman.  Maybe he just needs a time out.  He's to young and it makes it too stupid.

How old was Tim when he became Robin? 12 , like Dick?
I loved this issue. The fight in the GPD was awesome, and the conversation between Dick and Alfred was also really nice. just didn't like the Jeep thing. You know, if you have a f###ing flying batmobile, why  use a jeep?

You kidding me? Bruce is an extraordinary man to the degree that his meticulous attention to detail has led people to say things like "Batman thinks of everything" and you think that his spawn and inheritor of his genes who was also trained and born into the family of Ras Al Ghul could be anything less than a child prodigy? Because that's just what he is.

I really enjoyed this issue, I especially like the part where Dick was talking about the cape, I thought it was really interesting.
