What She Means: Jason Todd was the “Robin Who Died" and when he came back as Red Hood (Under The Red Hood 2004-2006) he was after Bruce for not killing the Joker and revenging his death. Bruce, after Jason’s death just metaphorically shrugged and walked away as he moved on to Tim Drake (No hate towards Tim, love that boy). But when Damian Wayne (Also love that boy), as Robin, died (Issue #8 of Batman, Inc. 2013) Bruce went mental and did nothing but search for a way to bring him back and revenge. Bruce was unwilling to accept the death. The only thing that stopped him from killing Heretic (Damian Wayne’s killer) was his resemblance to Damian. LIKE WHAT THE FUCK. Jason begged his father to revenge him, just once, but Bruce is willing to lose his sanity and entire code of conduct for Damian. Jason, being apart of the batfamily probably watched in absolute horror, as his own father choose his biological son over his adopted son. By now he probably has realized the wrongs in his past concerning trying to force Bruce to kill. Not to deemphasize Jason’s violent story, as he was acting as a sort of villain in the Under The Red Hood arc and forcefully tried to get his father to kill, but in Damian’s case, he would have done it without a second thought. Not only is this a major blow to Jason, but it is a poor representation of families with both biological children and adopted children, or even families with just adopted children, I’m sure. In short, the writers say that Bruce loves his biological son more than his adopted which is UNACCEPTABLE. Despite all of this, the writers did not exhibit how Jason was feeling during said arc which just isn’t fair to the readers OR the actual characters and their dynamic.
I like to think of
Dean, Sam, Castiel, and Crowley in an AU where they’re the Four Horsemen.
Dean is Death. You’d expect Death to be scary looking, or solemn and cold. But Dean is golden and beautiful and yes he can be solemn, but he can also be bright as sunlight. Because people fear Death, but he’s not cruel and a warm smile and a gentle touch soothes the souls most terrified of him when he comes for them.
Sam is Famine. He’s always hungry. Starving. For blood, for souls. It’s an addiction that burns and claws and itches and bites under his skin. But he tries so very hard to keep himself in check. Dean helps him when it’s really tough, reminding him why he shouldn’t go find a city and devour every soul until he’s bursting at the seams. And when Dean reaps a particularly bad soul, the kind that doesn’t even deserve the “comforts” of Hell, he’ll give it to Sam to snack on.
Castiel is War. On the surface he looks calm and placid, but he’s like a lake in the caldera of a slumbering volcano. And when he looses his temper, he destroys everything in his path. Dean walks beside him, ending the suffering of the injured and the starving and the diseased. He doesn’t judge or try to stop Castiel, but is there to comfort him when his anger finally dies and he realizes all the destruction he’s wrought.
Crowley is Pestilence. Lord of everything from colds to the plague. But also less tangible infections. When darkness seeps into the minds and hearts of people, that is his touch. Hate and jealousy are spread from soul to soul like the flu is spread from body to body. The darkness kills through violence rather than illness, but it’s just as effective. Crowley’s very proud of his creativeness with that. Dean just shakes his head at Crowley and tries to keep him away from Castiel.
