“The ABC’s of #Robin ” - ‘B’ is for “#BorntoKill ”: When #BruceWayne returned to #theBatman mantle after his apparent death, he discovers how to be a father to #DamianWayne through forming a Dynamic Duo with his son, the 5th (canon) and new Boy Wonder. The early stages of this adjustment is seen in #TheNew52 ’s #BatmanandRobin arc ‘Born to Kill’, originally published in 2011’s #Batman and Robin (Vol 2) 1-8, written by #PeterTomasi and illustrated by #PatrickGleason and #MickGray (cover to 2012’s issue 6 presented). The new #DarkKnight and Robin go up against a new lethal foe of Gotham City named #Nobody whose mission is to rid #BatmanIncorporated . During this hunt for Nobody, Bruce is trying to calm Damian’s literal and natural killer instinct and skill; Bruce wants to do right by his son and doesn’t want to nurture the assassin taught by his mother #TaliaAlGhul . The arc illustrates not only this struggle between Bruce being a father to Damian and heroic mentor but also Damian’s temptation to kill, reinforced by Nobody who wants to bring him under his murderous wing. In the end, fed up with physical and mental torcher, Damian succumbs and kills Nobody, resulting in Bruce and Damian having a heart to heart (while #AlfredPennyworth heals their wounds) Bruce teaching him that murder continues the cycle of violence each day they swore to rid within their city. “Born to Kill” is an essential modern Robin arc showcasing Damian’s new role as Robin, his dynamic with his father and how, in comparison to others who have taken up the mantle such as Dick Grayson and Tim Drake, the Boy Wonder persona can be more morally complex than being the #CapedCrusader ’s sidekick. ✌🏼❤️💛💚🦇 #HistoryoftheBatman#DCComics#ComicBooks#Comics
so I put up a PF for a quick O7S clear. we fill up pretty quick and then head inside. THEN I LOSE CONNECTION TO THE SERVER. I had to restart my PS4 and restart ffxiv like 4 times before it loaded me back in to find that everyone had left already. the world doesn’t want me to clear 😭 I’m so salty.
sushi always makes me feel better though.
