I don’t really like the way Bruce is mourning, but in a way it makes sense. His son died in a world where death doesn’t always take. I imagine that so many other people feel this way in comic book worlds.
Because Hawkeye can come back to life, why can’t the person I love? Superman died and came back, why doesn’t anyone else?
And the big question.. will Damian return?
I think it’s likely, but not any time soon.
I love the two of them as a team. That year of Dick Grayson as Batman with Damian as Robin was great.
Dick Greyson as Batman & little Damian Wayne
“personally i like these two together as a team”
I was so disappointed when Dick got downgraded to Nightwing.

I always wanted to do a female version of the Damian Wayne Robin. His Robin costume is just awesome. I like it overall, I was going to leave her legs bare but I like the legging wear more, I think.
When those Gotham losers have to get real jobs
BrooseBruce is like okay guys I’m not bankrolling your shit anymore here’s the classifieds go nuts and then he z-snaps away and Alfred replaces the sports section with the actual classifieds because BruceBroose.
And okay Dick’s had some proper jobs for awhile but he’s out of practice and like he’s not allowed to be a cop anymore so he gets a job teaching kids gymnastics like that one time. And he’s so good at it you guys, it’s like the perfect job for him.
Jason’s like pfft whatever but then he realizes he’s never actually had a legal, 9-5 job before. But hold up, it can’t be that hard, right? So he goes and buys a suit and goes around for interviews but these ‘where do you see yourself in five years’ questions are giving him stomach cramps and wait a minute Mr. Todd it says here you’ve been legally dead for six years?
Cass is chill as all holy fuck she waltzes in and charms the pants off the interviewer. And so now she’s a janitor at Dick’s gym and Bruce’s like egads no I can get you a job as a secretary but Cass is like ew filing and okay Cass can work anywhere that doesn’t involve a lot of talking and oh gosh I don’t even know about her in the working world. Except fuck you Bruce she’s the CEO.
Steph doesn’t have to have this conversation because she’s normal and she’s got college and she doesn’t need Bruce’s money thank you very much.
Tim is a genius so he can get a job anywhere he wants but he kind of doesn’t want to stray far from his family or his friends because he wuvs them so he’s a math tutor at the school that’s across the Dick and Cass’ gym and on his breaks and walks over and thumb wrestles with Cass.
Damian is ten.
Damian has a paper route.
Where’s my head at.
Damian is a 10 year old day trader. He just makes fat stacks of cash and is aiming for a hostile takeover of Lexcorp.
To Fans of Damian who say he is cute/adorable and will turn out okay.
Did you forget Batman #666?
He became Batman at 14.
Sold his soul to the Devil for power.
Might be the anti-Christ.
#666 also has a page that is a nod to Dark Knight Returns with the light on Damian as he watches the news.
So far, nothing has happened yet to take the issue out of continuity, Pyg still lives, Flamingo showed up in #666.. and didn’t actually appear in regular stories until over 2 years later. Same with Pyg.
Batman and Dick can still die as Batmen and leave Damian to be forced to make a deal with the devil to save Gotham.
