Fool. I warned you... don't call him a man-bat.
Tim Drake and I had our differences, but I'll admit he was a great man. Despite his best efforts, over the past few years the Teen Titans have been losers, criminals--a joke. They epitomized what's wrong with this younger generation of so-called heroes--They didn't deserve to be called a "super-team." But we could do better.
Am I really here kicking a teenaged female Doomsday in the face? Yes I am.
My father is... imperfect. Distant. Uncertain. You've gnawed on the doubts he left you. But don't mistake uncertainty for lack of faith. He wanted you to surpass him. Perhaps you'll stop giving up long enough to attempt it? If he left Mother to us...it's because he believes we can win.
Khadym is... that's where she's hiding. Talia al Ghul. The daughter of the demon. My mother.
I'm not the one in a ship filled with alien freaks, so how about shutting up and letting me work on keeping you safe, father!
It's a reminder that our father has shown us both sides of himself, Damian. Just as we have shown him ours. This batarang belonged to our father. Remember, we are a Wayne first, and an al Ghul second.
I'm sure you'll be angry with me for disobeying you again but I don't care, I will not let you fight Leviathan alone. You need me and I will always be at your side.
Because it will be hard for me to say these words face to face, I want you to know that Mother may have given me life, but you taught me how to live.
Love and respect
He once told me a story: on a very bad end to a very bad mission, his spy master, which I guess is his boss... who is, as we speak, a very well-known world leader, told him not to fret about him screwing up the mission. He said -- one of the dirty secrets of the spy business is that no one actually really needs to win. It just appears that way because there are so many secrets and so many lies. He said, "it's just about keeping busy." Busy was considered success.
Remember who you are, you weak-willed sot! Remember me! I am Damian Wayne! I am the Robin to your Batman! We were the greatest together, Grayson! We were. But it's different now. You're...you're gone. Finding a new life. Considering having a child to replace me. I don't know what I will be...alone. I need you here, Richard.
Let me tell you a story. Once, there was a boy. A warrior of the soul, seeking the cleansing hand of redemption. His journey brought him to Edo, known now as Tokyo. He'd heard whispers of a dark force tearing the city apart. He thought himself a hero. He thought he would make things right. But these forces were darker, stronger and more vicious even than the boy had been at the peak of his unworthiness. They took the boy. Chained him in a tower. Swore to drain him of every ounce of powerful blood to fuel their conquest. They thought the boy an orphan. They didn't know he had a brother.
I am Robin. Son of Batman. And that's all you need to know!
Mother taught me that our weaknesses always pave the road to defeat... I hate it when she's right!
You're the one holding all the cards. You've got the blackmail. You're going to kill me when we're done. And I'm a hypocrite because of what my mother did to me? Well she's dead, and I'm here. What's your excuse?
You understand I'm not done with the atonement, Alfred. So much of what I did in the Year of Blood must be corrected. I went far down the path my mother laid out. I do not want to become the man she envisioned.
Father... I am truly alone. But I cannot allow your legacy to languish in the hands of unworthy pretenders. You will come back to me... I know it... and when the true Batman returns to Gotham... he will find his city as he left it. Safe. Protected. Your son will not fail you.
Yeah. The missing dogs. Mission accomplished, apparently. So now you have to get them all home, Jon.
It's time for Robin and Superboy to take a stand!
Why does everyone always assume if someone's taller, they're older?
Tim Drake and I had our differences, but I'll admit he was a great man. Despite his best efforts, over the past few years the Teen Titans have been losers, criminals--a joke. They epitomized what's wrong with this younger generation of so-called heroes--They didn't deserve to be called a "super-team." But we could do better. There are five of us. And five fingers make a fist. Join me... I dare you.
Jackson...since you joined us in the Tower, you've been saying you're ready. Now's the time to prove it. So you've learned your father is a world-class psycho...join the club... But now you're going to keep fighting. Because that's what Titans do.
Teen Titans -- meet me on the roof! We've got a mission -- and we're going undercover.
Fine. No more secrets. I had a choice. Follow in the footsteps of the world's greatest crime lord or the world's greatest detective...and I chose the Batman! Now buckle up, Teen Titans! We just got a head start in the race for our lifes...but the Demon's Fist won't stop until the hunt is finished.
I'm sick of the revolving door that is Arkham Asylum... it's time someone locked them all up and threw away the key. Because in my prison, nobody gets out. Ever.
Your crimes, long and bloody, have bore bitter fruit, Ra's...Shall we feast?
Look out, evil! Here come the Super Sons!
Obviously I don't want your dad to die. And I'm sorry you're feeling messed up about it. But unlike him, you were literally born to do this. You will fill your dad's shoes someday. Nobody can stop it. Not even you.
It's time for Superman to stop fighting the symptoms. You're powerful enough to be the cure.
I'm going to put a stop to your tournament, Mother Soul... stop whatever you've created here, great grandmother. Then I'm coming for you.
I've been taking abuse my whole life. Why stop now? I failed someone who meant a lot to me. Because I wasn't good enough. This island is my punishment for that. With my first death here, I knew this was the place for me. Where I could find out if I'm really the monster people keep telling me I am... but I'll never stop until I know if the darkness I feel is real.
Because I don't want my father's help. I refused to be tracked. This is my fight...
Ra's al Ghul...?
I don't want you to be together. And I don't want you to be enemies. I just want you to get along. As my parents, the greatest gift you could give me is for you to respect each other... and to respect my choice to go with neither of you.
