King just introduced the Hypnos in Omega Men. An alien gave it to a man in exchange for a shoe, earth things are very rare in that place.I think is very cool

@bat_girl_cc:

Not really. I didn't expect Dick win against Cassandra, she is unbeatable, that's her thing, she win fights. That was also what makes the fight so very stupid. No, what I hated was Dick saying crap like "I'm one of the best trained fighter..." That is bad writing and out of character. That got me mad. And 50 K for the for a book with "batman" and "Snyder" in the cover in it's 2 month is not that great and it doesn't make the story any less mediocre.

And what Cassandra learned in all those fights is that if she adds Dick, Jason and Tim she may end with a whole person. Awesome, good thing she gotta humiliated Dick for that, totally worth it. Not useless at all, just like her USB that didn't help anything.

When I say that what this books does is beat Dick down and ridicule him, is exactly I what mean. Dick is incompetent in this, they keep hammering that he feels unworthy, that he is insecure. Why would you think is just about Cassandra stomping him when you made a thread gleefully announcing how screwed he is?

I wish it was "Batman introducing Cassandra Cain" and leave Dick out of it completely, because is the most crowded book I have even seen. And it keeps pulling Dick down with not other purpose that EVERYBODY else looks good.

@nathaniel_christopher: I'm pretty sure Tim punched him the past issue, Jason punched him in Grayson, Bruce did it in Batman... Dick met Stephanie and Harper 5 min ago, not really familly, neither is Barbara unless Dick, and Jason (and Bruce and Tim) are into incest.

In B&R eternal Dick is utterly incompetent because everybody else has to look good, the mother is going to clean the floor with him. Not sure how anyone that like Dick's character can enjoy this take on him, but if you like that he screwed constantly is the book for you.

@bat_girl_cc: I'm saying Batman and Robin Eternal is a mediocre story that can only way it can build up characters pulling others down.

The mother has to beat up Dick to be established as a threat just like Cassandra had to beat him down to be established as a competent fighter. Nevermind the whole thing was unnecessary from the beginning.

So of course the mother is going to beat him down and ridicule him, is what this books does.

I wish they would had called it something like "Batman introducing Cassandra Cain" and leave Dick out of it completely. The book is bad for him and I'm done with the bat family beating him down

Dick has been in big trouble since they decide use him in this serie. He is screwed, only used to build up other characters, first Cass then Jason and Tim and now the mother.

Nothing interesting about it. Or you think it will make any difference if the mother beats him badly instead of Cassandra this time?

It was pretty awful. Dick was out of character and ridiculous. More than anything highlighted how Dick can't be translated to Barbara's world anymore.

That relationship is dead, their interactions are always painfully awkward and miserable. I wish people would just let it go.

Non-existent. Maybe former colleagues.

There isn't in book information on what Dick's opinion of Jason is because he never thinks about him. Jason has some mínimum issues.

They have people on comun... so some kind of third cousins, twice removed

Some of my favorite Dick as Robin stories are not from the 40's 50's 60's 70's.

Dark Victory is great, Robin year one is wonderful.....Dick as Robin in TAS, in Joung Justice, in the original Teen Titans go!

Even the new 52 has some good portatials of Dick s Robin, like Batman and Robin Annual #2.

Nevermind that Batman, superman and Wonerd woman a product from a same era, the difference being Dick has been allowed to grow.

Because Johns needed shock value for his crossover, and he isn't a good editor.

@youknowwhattodo: Maybe they are all moles. That would be pretty funny, and doesn't mean they are all in the same side if they all had different agendas.
