@outside_85: the thing is though that Tim has beaten Damian while the only time that Damian has gotten any kind of upperhand over Tim is when he suckerpunched him.....Tim is clearly a better fighter than Damian

How about this,Pre-Robin Tim vs Pre-Robin Damian,who do you think wins that bout?

I'd go with Damian there...Tim had little to no training before he became Robin....but by the time that Damian came around Tim had already gotten to his Pre52 prime...having trained with Batman for years and having gone through his training with Lady Shiva even having defeated Lady Shiva after his training

they've managed to talk up Damian's training throughout the years but he really hasn't done anything special since his introduction

Tim hasn't exactly done anything special either when you think about it.

taking down King Snake, beating Shiva twice (one was through prep) and all but bringing down the League of Assassins and getting some of the top praise available from Ra's in the process isn't special?

King Snake was all over the place,he's lost to Batman badly,barely survived Silver Monkey(who one shotted Tim),got stalemated by KG Beast and was tossed aside casually by venom less Bane(who has also owned Drake).IIRC the circumstances in which Tim beat him are suspect anyway,his fighting style was thrown off completely due to his new found visibility.

The other time was a spar.

Fodder LOA,and praise from Ra' actually meant something back in the 90's,now everyone is getting praise cause it's cheap and easy. Tim didn't earn his praise in the slightest.

Sinestro,even Power Ring managed to get a hit on Mirror Master.

@entropy_aegis: Right, Geoff doesnt control the animation division or WBAD wouldn't have the policy of "only Batman and Justice League movies from now on".

WBAD knows how to make money,if they stop making those flicks they lose money. Geoff cant reimburse them now can he?

@entropy_aegis: You're missing my point. It was said that he'd consumed all the power he could.

What exactly is he consuming? Landmarks are still there, so we know it's not the universe itself that's being consumed.

We have no idea what destructive capability said power would have if it was released.

Ok,your last 2 points make sense and obviously cannot be answered until get further information.However as to your first point,he consumed all the power he could from a universe,again the choice of words is important. Whatever he did consume was universal.

Cassandra isn't running circles around Bane,she will get hit and one hit is all he needs,Batman recently took a very bad hit and only survived because of his New-52 suit. Bane himself is methodical,calculating,agile and apparently superhumanly fast also has move reading of his own. Combine that with his strength and durability and Cass is in for the fight of her life,he aint some random brute who clobbers stupidly.

@entropy_aegis He didn't consume the power of the universe, he consumed all the power he could from a universe. That doesn't automatically make the power he consumed capable of destroying a universe.

But they specifically use the word universe,they could have gone with galaxy or added something like say "almost",the intention of the writer is clear. Now I'm not saying that this means Darkseid would flatten Thanos in 2 seconds,we obviously need feats to establish that but the story is making it abundantly clear that Anti-Monitor here is a universal power. Nitpicking over the choice of words isn't going to change anything,and frankly it's not even ambiguous.
