WASDuk Review: Son of Batman

WASDuk's Chris Patton goes all psychological and describes why Damian Wayne cannot be wedged comfortably into the other generations of Bat-family members:

"One ought to go Freudian here and label the three generations as the id, ego, and super-ego, but the fact remains that DC Entertainment cannot wedge Damian in with the other generations who have history on their side. At one point, Deathstroke stabs and crucifixes Damian to a wall with his swords. Suddenly, Damian tears his arm through one of the swords, picks up another sword on the ground, and proceeds to beat Deathstroke to a pulp. It’s far, far more of a head-scratcher than the introduction of Blight and Inque were back in the Bat-day."

The story is too old to be commented.

Am I the only Batman Beyond fan out there?!

Not sure why you brought up Batman Beyond and went on about it for a whole paragraph. But yeah, I love Batman Beyond. I know a lot of others do too. That's why the comics still come out and the new DC Animated Short is about him.

Just establishing what happens when we have history. Now, we are comfortable and accepting of Beyond. When it first came out a large majority hated it.

2/5? Damn. I imagine this being amazing. Since I'm a HUGE Batman fan, I'm sure I'll love it anyways.

I'm a huge fan as well, but we must have standards. regardless, Killer Croc and Nightwing are fantastic!

I remember the backlash over Beyond, and I personally think it was all too much too soon for some people. I guess this movie focuses on Damian rather than Batman?

I don't remember anyone hating Batman Beyond. I remember being very curious how a future Batman would work, but it was being made by the same guys that did BTAS, STAS and Justice League. I was willing to give them the benefit of the doubt.

And after 2 episodes, I was hooked. Terry McGuiness was so much more interesting than any of the previous Robins and the new suit was just iconic as all hell. The movie "Return of the Joker" was fantastic as well.

I simply can't imagine anyone hating the show and if there were, they were (and still are) idiots of the highest order. IMO, we need a Batman Beyond movie ASAP!

Oh, i'm not saying it was bad in any way. It was awesome, and the new villains were really well thought-out. But there was the typical knee-jerk reaction to anything that's different.
