Who is Damians father figue?

#1 Posted by magicman620 (125 posts) - - Show Bio

Hey guys,
Do you think Dick is more of father figure to Damian then Bruce was?  I know Damin is not the easiest to get along with but i feel that Dick Grayson has really stepped up since Bruce's brief departure. I know Bruce is an awesome guy and i am really glad that he is back  Anyway let me know what your opinion is. Bye!

Dick has helped him a lot, but Damian still doesn't respect Dick like he does Bruce.

Dick Grayson. Alfred Pennyworth. Both good friends and mentors to Damian

Dick is more of an older brother type. I like Damian, but sometimes he is too bratty.

Idk, Dick to me seems more like a foster dad to Damien then a brother.

I think Dick is trying to give Damian someone to look up to because he sounds like a more friendly Bruce wayne when he is teaching him things and thinks he is a good example because he has to go through a lot of things Dick did. I think he is more of a responsible big brother.

Yep!

@batflasharrow96: Definitely. I think the 'older brother' approach Dick is taking is probably what has caused Damian to improve so much in Bruce's absence. Damian would try to rebel from his father, but most kids imitate their big brothers. He doesn't get along with Tim, the 'middle child' (we'll leave Jason, the 'black sheep' out of this analogy) but both Tim and Damian follow Dick's example, often more than they follow Bruce's.

I agree Dick is more of an older brother, but he hasn't had a father figure until now, now that Bruce has returned. Seeing them interact will be interesting. We didn't see much exchange between them before Bats was killed.

I think there were hints of that. And, perhaps, if Bruce had been dead and gone then Dick would have become more of that for Damian. Now that Bruce is back I think that the relationship will become more firmly defined as an older brother. I'm really interested in seeing Bruce finally step into the role of father for Damian. He's never really spent much time with his son. It's going to be complicated and messy for the two of them to forge a more meaningful bond and that may be complicated by Dick being the one who Damian currently feels close to and respectful of. It's definitely a really interesting story and one that I'm looking forward to seeing more of as Bruce's return is explored in further detail.

@ScarlettLynn:
Bruce tried working with Damien after Bruces return and he couldnt do it. Dick pleaded with Bruce to allow Damien to continue as Robin under Dicks guidance. With Bruce being gone so much, things havent seemed to change between Dick and Damien. It reminds me of a friend i had in school. She grew up knowing she was adopted but never knew her real parents. She looked like she was related to her foster mother and in her teen years, she found out her foster mothers sister was her real mom. So now she knows her mom is her aunt and her aunt is her mom but she still see's it as her foster mother (her aunt) is her real mom. 
 
Damien might know who is dad really is but he is being raised (father - son) by Dick w/ the help of Alfred

atm dick is a father figure to damien but maybe in the fiture we will get more interaction between damien and bruce, maybe one day he will be able to join batman inc but i think thats still a far way away

Dick is definitely more of an older brother, even if was to have stayed "dead". Damian idolises Bruce.
