> He noticed and you were dealing with a young Bruce Wayne thinking he was in a safe hospital not a mature Batman ready for anything.

And when Batman underwent the deprivation test he was even younger. On top of that when he was drugged in the present he was not consious so it would be kind of hard for him to notice he was being drugged. And even more factors come into play as to why he doesn't remember who he is once he wakes up.

> > Your statement would ahve worked a lot better if I hadn't, y'know, posted the actual panels for everyone to see.
> Your statement would have worked better if you actually showed something good Morrison has done.

And since it is perfectly obvious how much you hate Morrison it is perfectly clear that no matter what he showed you, you wounldn't be able to see anything good in it because you'd already be biased against it.

> > And in Morrison's story it's taken years-ago psychological conditioning and an entire organization of foreign supervillains. Oh, and the guy who kayoes Batman with a chair to the head in the example I posted? Not super-strong, sorry.
> Its a retcon that came out of nowhere that makes Batman out to be a crazy insane manipulative fool.
> You take trashing a character as continutiy?

But that's just it. He is not trashing the character. He has the character undergo a series of obstacles that he will have to overcome in order to come out on top at the end of the story. Standard storytelling procedure. If Batman never faced any problems in facing his foes then the stories would become even more simplistic then those Silver Age stories you keep berating.

> > Doesn't the superhero always win by the end of the arc when it's his own comic?
> Not according to Morrison.

Weird. I don't remember any story by Morrison that does not have the hero(es) come out victorious at the end. I guess your not reading his stories have made you a big expert on the man.
