The Arkham Knight is like a dark reflection of Batman. He seems to know everything about him: tactics, gadgets and weaknesses. He has used this knowledge to create an identity that mocks the Dark Knight and creates a striking image on the battlefield that inspires his army and terrifies the enemies.
“You know, I was proud when you took the name Nightwing. And now, a little part of me is kind of sad you gave it up. The great rebuilder, the catalyst of change, eternally reborn to start anew. But then, I think there’s a more appropriate name for that title now. Grayson.”
Two incidents is hardly a pattern make – however, it is trending close to it. Hopefully, the incidence of one-eyed Robins is waning. In retrospect, I like the idea of one-eyed Robins, there’s a poetic dichotomy of having an acrobat (Dick Grayson) and a sharpshooter (Jason Todd) with no depth perception. In spite of the fact that I’m partial to it, I don’t want it to spread.
