Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

Batman and Robin #8: The Born to Kill arc concludes with a pretty good issue. I finally get the conversation between Bruce and Damian that I've waited the entire arc for and it was worth it. Bruce hits it on the nail that they're problems are based on their misunderstanding of each other, not a dislike or hatred. Perhaps Damian felt that way when he was first introduced to his father, but not any more. He has evolved an incredible amount since "Batman and Son" even with the violent mood swings and inability to keep that part of him in check. Bruce reveals as we all already know, that he possesses those same urges as his son and it is a personal battle for him to push them away. It is the moral conflict that Bruce has faced since the first time he put on the cowl. Next we enter the Night of Owls event arc which should be interesting.
