Arrow's Deathstroke was awesome solely because of Manu,his performance is the highlight of the series, in terms of writing Deathstroke was pretty bad from the mid point of season 2 and onwards.

@black_arrow: I'd say he'll be pretty on par with Arkham Batman if they keep this up. But then again Batman did knock him out with his hands in the New 52 a couple of times, so I doubt they will keep it consistent with this instance.
Well Killer Croc already beat Bane with Venom. So he being that powerful in New 52 has already been saw. Also Batman can beat Bane Hand to Hand even if Bane is pumped up with Venom.
Bane has beaten Croc twice in the New-52 and was ordering him around even in this annual,the Batman Eternal fight was just BS,the writer has a huge crush on Croc and deliberately jobbed Bane to make Croc look good.
and Batman is Batman,he's more powerful than ever,he dominated Deathstroke and even hung with Lincoln March in spite of all his injuries and fatigue.
Tim Drake just exists for the sake of existing now, if the best thing to be done with him is to give him the mythology of another character altogether then he's better off being benched or killed.
Get Tim back to his roots, make him the layman Robin,the guy who is a normal kid in extraordinary circumstances. This constant desire to make him more like Batman and Damian had made the character dull and bland.
Damian wins,his skill,speed,strength and pain threshold are all far greater, he's also much more ferocious. All those people saying Dick has a tactical advantage should realize that Dick doesn't have team mates who are gonna get their asses handed to them while he's coming up with a plan,nor is he going up against a villain who's gonna monologue and give openings. There wont be any time for plans against someone like Damian.
Damian curbs. Beat Nightwing, held his own against Batman and beat Talon.
You know how some people complain that Damian is a Marty-Stu?
If this and Son of Batman were their only exposures to the character, they'd actually have a point.
That being said, I'm getting used to the actor voicing Batman. I actually kind of like his slightly softer intonation.
Although my ideal version is Roger Craig Smith or that guy from Beware The Batman.
Eh Bruce even said Damian was NOT a 10 year old,he just looks like one. SOB Damian was definitely a Marty Stu,this one was nowhere close to being one. If he was then he'd have punked Talon and the Court by himself and told Batman he was jjust messing with him to get inside the Court.
I finished seeing it at Wondercon just now. I loved it just like I did the first one. It was so awesome. Damian was damn powerful in this movie
Well I hated Son of Batman,JL War and Throne of Atlantis and I was the first to informally review SOB,I think I gave it 3/10. But this movie was so much superior than all 3 put together that it's not even funny.
A badass villain,Talon was awesome,he was a good character, had a good story, he was deadly and all around done exceptionally well. He was the true highlight of this movie,and I actually dont care for any Talon from the comics at all.
Like UTRH this movie actually improved the source material,the idiotic twist with Lincoln was avoided, the motivations of the Court,their actions,back story,inclusion in to Batman's world etc was done far more organically than in the original story line, they meshed Court of Owls incredibly well with Born to Kill and even managed to introduce some of Morrison's beats,it could have been a disaster but they succeeded.
Fantastic fight sequences, the combat was choreographed incredibly well, the fights were believable, pleasing to watch and had you on the edge of your seat.
The story and characterization were pretty good overall. It focused exclusively on Batman and Robin's father/son dynamic,Damian's need for acceptance, his struggle against his own nature etc. In short it did what SOB should've done.
Voice acting was much better,still not quite there yet but seemed organic this time around.
They should've shown Bruce's escape from the Courts clutches.
@entropy_aegis: so basically she can never lose, cause you don't want her to? Pathetic....
So basically you want her to lose because it makes your boy look good? pathetic... and it wouldn't even be true as lxlgiftedlxl pointed out there's nothing special about beating a character who's been on a losing streak for a while.
@entropy_aegis: I have read some Shiva stuff too. And she really isn't that God you want her to be. She stalemated Batman in the eightys, and he wasn't even using gear. Big whoop. She's later beaten by Batman decisively, beaten by Cain decisively, and even has a crappy showing versus Huntress. New 52 Shiva doesn't have these lowshowings, so when Jason, who is way better then you like to admit, cause you're a biased hater, beat her, it makes him impressive, not her less.
And you're an ignorant fool, who Shiva has lost to or not is not my concern, my concern is her character and what she represents. You dont know a thing about her character,you saw some scans on these forums. I'll break it down for for you,Shiva and her fighting skills are one and the same,fighting is her CHARACTER,her skills are not merely tools to use when required.
The only ones who can beat are those who are precisely like her, that's where Cassandra Cain comes in,she and Shiva had many fights which went back and forth,Shiva even killed Cass in one of those fights, Cass only won decisively because Shiva kept giving her more and more chances.
She lost to Saar,an immortal martial artists with psionic powers on the same level as Martian Manhunter, Huntress accomplished nothing,she got her ass beat,you'd know if you'd actually read the comic.
She lost to Batman in a Jeph Loeb comic,that alone invalidates everything.
Shiva's sole purpose in life is to FIND someone capable of beating her,only New-52 Nightwing has gotten her right till now. If Jason beats Shiva then Shiva no longer has even reason to exist.
How come the Justice league managed to send darkseid away and heroes of earth 2 can't do the same and they have Sloan and mr miracle on their side + Darkseid is supposed to be weaker now because the whole reason for the invasion is to feed apokalips.
I just hope someone just kills him off he doesnt even have the power set to pretend to be some universal villain
Darkseid is a team buster and key point,they just sent him back.He's moving on to the universal power level,but he doesn't have to pointlessly blow up a galaxy for no reason. After World End concludes next week we've got Darkseid War. Expect more uberness from DS throughout the year.
The OP cant even spell Damian's name and has the nerve to call him a mary sue. As usual the term ends up getting misused because character A is better than character B
@entropy_aegis: Rose beat Shiva? Well I guess that makes Jason even better considering he beat Rose.
And idk wtf your talking about, I like Tynions run.
Beating a character who loses to every one makes Jason special now? here's a little fact for you Shiva is supposed to be the best of the best,SHE CANNOT BE BEATEN, her entire purpose as a character goes down the drain the moment someone bests her in a fight. You dont even know a thing about the character,the only thing that concerns you is her rep which you are using to push your boy Todd.
Characther that most writer wrote as being too perfect and they can do almost everything with their mean and they often lack some personality.
Mary Sue or Gary Stu (Male Version which is the case of Damien) is poorly developed character, too perfect and lacking in realism to be interesting.
Go read an actual comic with Damian in it.
Batman's perfection stems from his obsession which in turn forces him to ignore his own limitations and that has often led to his downfall. Even the last issue of Batman Eternal made it a point to show this,you dont know what a gary stu is, most people dont. You just saw a character who's really good or wins most fights so you went "mary sue".
