Batman and Robin #10 Review
Batman and Robin #10 is written by Peter Tomasi with art by Patrick Gleason. This issue is the first part of the "War of the Robins" storyline.
The story opens with a new villain, Terminus, assembling a group of four who have been captured and otherwise humiliated by Batman. Promising the opportunity for revenge, Terminus offers the other four villains each their own soldiers to wage their war against the Dark Knight. Meanwhile at Wayne Manor, Bruce, Alfred, Dick, Tim, and Damian all pose for a Wayne family portrait. Bruce's hope to spend some quality family time together is quickly ruin as the boys begin to bicker over who upheld the Robin legacy best. Later, Damian assembles all the former Robins together, including Robin #2 Jason Todd, to inform them that he plans to beat them all individually at something they feel unbeatable at.
This is shaping up to be a really fun sibling rivalry story. With the inevitable "can they stop fighting long enough to stop Terminus" issue out there, it will be fun to see how it plays out. Damian has often annoyed me since he was introduced as Bruce and Talia's son early on in Grant Morrison's run, but Tomasi has been finding ways to turn his arrogance into humor.
Enjoy Damian as Robin? Rooting for one Robin in particular through this story? Leave your comments below.
