I am starting to think it is Terry Sloan. It is because they fought before and the fact that Sloan was suppose to be the ultimate alpha male yet he shared a world with Bruce Wayne and lost a fight it must have gotten under his skin. Continuing the comic book tradition of villains dressing as heroes he becomes Batman.

The fight in the rain was really incredible. Agreed that it does stick to a familiar formula but it is a very good read.

At this point the book really feels like a traditional DC super hero comic compared to how it started. Another great issue.

Amazing trailer really builds up towards the end.

If there has to be a new Robin I'd rather it be Carrie Kelly now I think it is just a tease and they will not go there.

After this issue now it feels like the readers are deprived of a potentially great run on this book.

It was good to have Grant Morrison's Action Comics and at least I can check out Superman/Batman but the Superman books are now so terrible. It just seems like DC has no idea how bad they look now.

Does not matter if it is The New 52 origin it is not necessary to spend a year telling a story that is already being retold somewhere else. It seems Snyder never liked progressing the character now he doesn't have to.

Wasn't it Death and The Maidens by Greg Rucka that made Talia fully evil in the first place? I just assumed Grant Morrison figured that she was already a villain and just ran with it. He did say in Kevin Smith's podcast that we just witnessed love turn to hate. It is an interesting point that Talia witnessed Ra's in the pit more than once in her life it probably affected the way she views death in general letting her not see the full value of life.

Nyssa's torture of Talia doesn't seem to be mentioned much in the stories but I think it was big moment in Talia's history and does provide some explanation to as why her character went bad. To me it does not feel all that out of character that she is now evil.

I just see her relationship with The Heretic her own way of having Damian to love and raise he is a Damian that is fully his mother's son with no Batman or Dick Grayson to influence him.

If Batman breaks his one rule it is on her.
