Ra's should wear a suit more often, that's my biggest take away from this issue.
Surprise, hero goes to place in their past and everyone wants them dead! Whoops.
Batman heads to the past, then gets Metal, meanwhile Nightwing fights everyone.

Dark Days are coming to the DC Universe
Here I was thinking I was going to open this by referencing the Perturbator album in some form, only to remember that's called "Dangerous Days," so there goes that pull.
Metal this is not, but it seems we've got a prelude to Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's now-not-so-summer event, which I've been suppressing my excitement for going on 7 months now? Yeah. Didn't know this was coming, but nevertheless, Scott Snyder, James Tynion, Jim Lee, Andy Kubert and John Romita JR have "The Forge" and "The Cast" one shots coming in June and July that set the stage for events to come... boy you sure do forge and cast metal, don't you?
You can read more about it at DC's site, hell, you've probably already read enough about it while I was at work, but nevertheless, this all sounds cool... and if what half the shit I've heard about the probably-still-called Metal remains true (given the time that's past), this could be one awesome event, unlike those we've seen before.
On top of that, James Tynion has confirmed that this is what the final scene of Detective Comics #950 was about, and on top of that, Tim Seeley of Nightwing and Steve Orlando of Justice League of America have chimed in too.
