> He seems to have exhausted that option. He's said since his first appearance that the Pit's effects were weakening for him, and he's been using them a LOT (Of course this was back in the day when there were only one or two Pits' and they didn't lose their potency after one dip).
Didn't Ra's also try for Todd's body in the Annual? The Damian DNA is probably just a preference and not prerequisite for guaranteed success, right?
When did Tang irradiate himself? Haven't the Pit's been established to fix(if temporarily) any bio problems in the past? Also, doesn't the recent Black Adam series establish (new?) precedent of how and how long a disembodied spirit is able (or not able) to be reborn?
It was a nice enough issue and a refreshing change from the previous trilogy that went at least one issue too long. Nice how they worked in a poser cover with story relevance, revealing the story locale in the background. It was good to see some female ready to bust into the Rogues Gallery with their spotlight - and equally perfect how Bats handled them easily. Tiger Moth was truly bad-ass. "I'm a red-blooded, murder-luvvin' American country girl!" Move over (Countdown wimpified)Harley Quinn! "Talia looked good (not morally) *love* too. Is that Sensei that trained Vic Sage? What was his previous appearance?
'INTO THE COLD HELL OF THE BARDO OF DEATH' Bardo? Never heard that expression before. Is it an popular phrase?
Great stuff that Damian still wears the Robin colours and look forward to that crossover for sure!
