Enjoying this arc so far. Hard to get a flow reading this issue with nagging questions though. Not the best at Bat trivia. Maybe some MB'ers know the quick answers w/o me surfing around blindly for answers...

Is Nanda Parbat a real world legend like Xanadu?

Know Merlyn and passing familiar with Sensei. Who are the other assassins?

Here's a rhetorical one, that we'll get answered next ish. Who has the stronger poker face? Robin & Damian have been let go or Batman wouldn't show Ra's? Robin & Damian are being held still 'til Ra's gets what he wants?

Was the term THOGAL used in 52?

Artistic license has Bat-binoculars looking at the bridge at a wrong angle? And is showing a lighted torch that should also be seen with the naked(readers) eye? The assassins want to stop the monk because they'll be trapped in? Batman's swinging catch of the monk seems ridiculously far fetched distance wise & pendulum arc wise?

His shoulder chainmail is first seen this issue?

Someone else fell Merlyn?

Who is Rama Kushna and the Old Grey Ghost again?

Was Ra's father revealed a big shocker to longtime readers?

DaughterS? Plural? Talia and...?

Assume Sensei's (bloodiless) staff stabbed him at unseen speed?

" a thorn in OUR side." How many times has Sensei met Batman?

That was a wickedly cool attle! And that "lasting longer than a minute" was a wickedly cool topper line, eh?

Ra's did a mind switch thingee awfully easily didnt he? Probably will return when everyone leaves. Save to assume, it was probably a humor moment to walk away when he actually came for the pool.

Batman dodged as Sensei fell in the pool, Batman seemingly fell to the side, Batman grips the bank as he rose but surprisingly is seen IN the pool too? Is that the sequence to be interpretted?

Thanks in advance.

I can't answer everything - but this might help -

The assassins are all newly created except for Merlyn and Hook. Fabian Nicieza is writing a story for I forget which title and will show more about these assassins.

The binoculars angle is correct. We're looking through the lens, seeing what Batman's seeing. It would only be reversed if we were looking at the reflection from in front of him, but we're not, we're 'him'.

And the swoop - yes - over the top. But this is Batman. He can do it no problemo.

Batman dies. It was supposed to be interpreted that the monks placed him in the fountain to save him. Sensei fell in and died because he wasn't pure. Ra's took over a monk's body before dying himself.

I haven't seen these boards in ages. Figured I'd drop in and say hi to you guys.
