Battle for the Cowl #3 SPOILERS
« on: May 21, 2009, 03:18:34 PM »




Jason Todd has stabbed Tim Drake with a Batarang as we left issue #2. Picking up from up from last issue Jason drags Tim through his creepy dungeon which looks like Gomez, and Festers basement dungeon in the Adams Family movie. Tim is wearing the classic 80s Batman Powder Blue, and grey Bat costume. Jason takes the cowl from Tims head and drags him in a room while Tim lays there unconscious and bleeding. (Jason is wearing the evil Batman costume with the mouth guard from Batman RIP)

Nightwing figures out that the new Azrael (the Evil Batman whom Jason Todd is wearing his costume now) is not the Murdering Batman the police are after. He realizes that its Jason, and knows Tim has gone after him. Oracle tracks Tim's signal, and Nightwing arrives at the cave to find Tim's Cowl hung on a crucifix. Jason taunts Nightwing on the Microphone that Tim is dead, and that hes next. Nightwing grabs the cowl and is shocked by a booby trap Jason set up. Meanwhile Jason comes out and shows Nightwing a holographic message that Bruce sent to Jason upon his death.

Bruce says that there was a hidden trauma in Jasons past that Bruce thought he could overcome by using Robin as an outlet and that he now knows that that was wrong, and that he should have got Jason the help he needed as a young man. He asks that Jason have Alfred take him to psychiatrist as his dying wish. The mention of this unknown trauma sets off Jason, and is the catalyst for his murderous behavior. Jason an Nightwing throw down in a furious battle each as Nightwing is careful not beat Jason to death, even feeling he goes overboard when he breaks Jasons nose.

Jason taunts Dick that he is too much of a coward to take on the mantle of the bat. Dick thinks to himself that that the real truth is that Bruces dying wish was for him to not become the Bat that Nightwing, and Robin are enough to carry on the legacy. A wish Dick now thinks might have been hasty of Bruce. Meanwhile Damian is recovering from his gunshot wound at the cave, and insists he go out to help track down Jason. Alfred tells him that he is in no condition and has a very weak lung. Damian insists, and Alfred says very well but its time you dress the part, and Damian puts on the Robin vest. Damian is put in the care of Squire who is the female sidekick of Batmans British counterpart Knight Following Oracles tracer they take the Robin Cycle to Jasons cave

Jason and Nightwing continue to fight, meanwhile we see Tim wake up in his room where he is being held captive. He realized that the Jason outdated Batarang shattered when it stabbed the Kevlar lined costume of Bruces. Tim pulls out the shards and realizes that he passed out due to Bruces training that when a fatal blow is struck to fall unconscious to a near death state to slow the bloodloss. Tim comments that he never thought that it would actually work, and says thanks Bruce. Jason manages to get to a detonator in the fight and realizes he isnt going to beat Nightwing, and sets the cave to explode and flees. Dick knows he cant get away, and chases Jason to a speeding train where they continue to battle.

The cave explodes, and Tim feels the floor collapsing below him. Tim is falling to his death when Damian grabs his arm as Squire hoists them both up, and flee the cave. Back at the train Jason takes the tattered cowl and tosses it to blind Nightwing. Dick knows that Jason is coming for the kill and knows he must feel his decent perfect or hes dead. Nightwing delivers a brutal kick to the gut of Jason sending over the edge of the train hanging hundreds of feet above the water. Dick reaches his hand out to Jason to help him, and Jason refuses, and says he will see him soon as Jason falls to the water like a sack bricks, and sinks in the river to his apparent death (although people rarely die that way in the comic) Nightwing says it didnt have to end this way, and Jason,s Demons got the best of him.

The last page is Alfred and Damian dressed as Robin. And Dick Grayson says to himself that he wasnt ever avoiding this moment and that he could never deny that he simply is the Batman We then see that Grant Morrisons return to Batman next month will be called Batman and Robin, and will be featuring Dick Grayson as Batman, and Damian Wayne as Robin.

I cant wait!!!

I'm looking forward to Nightwing as the new Batman. I actually like the James as the new Cap, and that series is going to go strng as long as Brubaker writes it.

The thing with this version of Batman and Robin is that you have a differant relationship with the two. Damian is a little smartazz brat, but tough as nails, and brutal too. Damian lacks a concious, or any sympathy being the grandson of Ras Al Ghu.

With Dick Grayson he doesnt have as much baggage as Bruce does. Despite his parents death Alfred, and Bruce, and being Robin helped fill that void in his life. So while he is still very serious he works much better with others than Batman. Dick is overly cautious but not paranoid like Batman.

On top of it Dick has been trained his whole life by Bruce, he's had a childhood of training for most of his life. Talia, and Ra's even thought his skill had surpassed his mentor, and Dick is a flashy fighter, where as Bruce is more a brutal UFC type of combatant.

Damian may not be as skilled of a Robin as Tim Drake has been but he's going to be the kind of Robin that criminals will have a reason to actually fear Robin. It's a big contrast of the characters. Lighter Batman, darker Robin. The adopted son mentoring the heir of Batman.

Its going to be interesting to see what happens when Bruce comes back.....I would prefer Damien to stay as Robin when that happens. Although I dont know what they would do with Dick? These issues with this duo will be mucho entertaining to say the least  :)

Well theyve shown that Tim seems to still be Robin in Flash Rebirth because Tim is with Bart in the Titans, and Bart was not around when Tim left to help in Gotham during battle for the cowl. So I assume Tim will be the Robin of the Titans, in probably the best Titans line up ever.

Robin
Kid Flash
Superboy
WonderGirl
Miss Martian
Blue Beatle
Ravager
ect

Damian will obviously be Robin for Batman for a while. I just see Nightwing going back to Nightwing, the Sr Titans seem to be just killing time till his return. No doubt Red Arrow will try to lead, and when Dick comes back they will get into a man drama as always

 ;D lol at man drama.....I dont read any titans series so I didnt know that stuff....Its good to know that Damien will stay as Robin. Cant wait till Bruce comes back and we get to see how that plays out story wise.
