Robin Rises: Omega #1 Preview

Darkseid? Dr. Hurt? Time traveling Batman? B-b-but that was all before The New 52, thus doesn't exist... but it's here, and now my head hurts. ERROR. ERROR. ERROR.

  1. This makes me unbelievably happy. Happier than all of those coloring errors in Superman themed issues where you can clearly see the red undies.

  2. Nah, mang, he's Batman! All his continuity is good, even if it don't make no sense there's four Robins in five (six?) years!

    Anyway, happy that Tomasi is continuing the Damian story and retaining at least the most significant elements of Morrison's run as "continuity."

    (Pre-New 52 it was left somewhat ambiguous by Morrison as to whether Damian was (a) literally a love-child of Batman/Talia -- i.e. natural baby-making and birth and then (b) later was kinda, sorta ret-conned to Damian being grown in a test tube, but not totally being clear on how long that actually took for him to gestate and/or grow to full 10-year-old size/maturity. Point being is that the New 52 is presumably going with the idea that Damian was grown closer to 10-year-old maturity in a test tube, since he couldn't be 10 given the New 52 timeline. All that said, I remember that immediately prior to the New 52, Didio and/or Lee said in an interview that Batman had operated "underground" for like five years prior to Justice League #1. Obviously Zero Year changed that to just one year prior... Anyway, who cares, because comics!)

    1. I'm patting you on the back. Solid work here :D
