Batman and Robin #7

The best issue of the run so far which isn't to hard for me to claim given my general reaction to the run so far. It seems to have generally gotten fair reviews online so gonna cut&paste the key points that echoed my feelings. Though AFAIK ..err.. nobody mentioned how unclearly NoBody got sooo many those sharpee thingees in Bruce's back in the otherwise entertaining mano a mano. Also, adding a banner submission, here, from the chilling splash page. Does anyone have anything to add that hasn't already been said online?

    Now this is more like it. Now that all the backstory is out of the way, Peter Tomasi and artist Patrick Gleason really get a chance to cut loose with Batman and Robin #7, providing an action-heavy, explosive conclusion to their first arc with one hell of an ending twist.

    While this is an amazing issue, it is not without faults. The first being Batman crashing into the boat Nobody and Damian were on and somehow containing that crash perfectly on their deck without killing either of the two or even badly hurting them

For what it's worth, this issue shows the problem with Damien. Damien kills yet again. The killing he did in the awesome Batgirl Batman Inc. doesn't count. The old guy Damien killed is Ra's Al Ghul. That hasn't been revealed but rearrange the letters and the fact the guy was around Hilter, it's Ra's.

Back to my point. Damien kills. It's bad to kill. It's very bad for 10 year old boys to kill. It warps the mind, and a mind warped that early in life is very difficult if impossible to unwarp. By Bruce Wayne paying more attention to fighting his war on crime instead of actually being a good father to a disturbed 10 year old boy, Bruce is a huge dick. Again, as I've said elsewhere (see my recent Captain America post) what you could get away with decades ago with silver and gold age comics, you can't get away with now. Bruce is a bad father who is doing incredible damage to his produced by rape grown in a test tube "son". That makes Bruce and Batman hugely awful as a character. Batman should never be portrayed as awful. He's cool, not a child abuser.

How many people does Damien have to kill before it dawns on Bruce taking a 10 year old boy out to fight psychotic murderers is a really bad idea.

Or I could be wrong.
