Cannot say my opinion of Damien, particularly his successes at age 10, are much different from yours as presented pre and post FP. Although his pre-pubescent Guy Gardner personality has been a fun read - at times (like, eg. interacting with Steph and Kara). Must say that his scene in this issue did have dramatic impact though, considering it only as part of this story arc. The vagueness of his new nu52 history however further offsets any appreciation how he has lasted this long as top 10 assassin and distractingly puts too much wonder in Boy Wonder. More backstory details may help but if Robin justs alienates any fanbase as you allude then is there a point to keeping him around? Curious what other BMBers think.
Do not think you are that wrong with your Cap post either. Although, specifically Cap and Namor have satisfactory established reasons to still be around. Even Torch, ignoring the severity of his multiple 'shut downs'. However the JSA and the other Timely Heroes still kicking around is a pain.
Interesting Ra's catch - will have to go reread that...
