  • This issue gave me some moments that I’ve wanted from Tom King’s run.
    This run has reminded me a lot of Despicable Me 2 of all things. What bothered me the most about that movie is Gru marries his love interest, Lucy, at the end of the film. I realized she never got a single scene with Gru’s daughters who for some reason automatically loved her based on nothing.
    And that’s what I’ve been missing from this run. Selina and Damien needs more scenes together. Do they go knife shopping together? Do they jump and swing from buildings to get to a hamburger joint? Do they sit and have heart to hearts? Damien is a huge part of Bruce’s life and Selina’s coming into that. They need more time together.
    Which is what made me really love this issue. I think Selina and Damien would actually get along really well. She doesn’t have to be “Mom” to him (We all know Dick Grayson is BatMom to everyone (kidding! (not really))), but she does need to build a relationship so there’s respect between her and her future son-in-law.

    • Yeah, just wish there was more of the two of them and completely agree there’s not enough exploration of that relationship.
