Welll there you go! That actually wasn't a bad answer considering how often DC rectons stuff, his answer actually does make sense. Especially if you throw in a "WHy do you think I changed my costume so drastically when i got back in the game?" line as he didn't want people to think he was Robin as he never really was, he was Red Robin (but people just called him Robin)
A prequel to this would work, elaborating on the story that Widow told about how he brought her into S.H.I.E.L.D. or maybe a flashback to it in a S.H.I.E.L.D. film with them as the field agents, Fury as the field commander, and Maria Hill on the hellacarrier as communications, ops and tactical.
I have to agree with you on all points. Esepcially about Bruce getting to be happy. I gave props for even trying that! And it was pulled off well, as in most cases fanboys would've lost their minds. That being said this is A definitive take on this character and it's world, but not THE definitive take. I'd still like to see something a bit closer to the comics. Take a long hard look at the Arkham games WB/DC cause that tpne is what you need.
