Can Damian and Jon just become friends already, please?
Look, I get it: Damian is bad with emotions, bad with friends, and is just bad at being a normal kid. That’s his character, his shtick, I understand that. But also, he CHANGES. He knows when what he’s been doing is wrong and he actively changes himself for the better, however hard it is for him. That’s the whole POINT of his solo series Robin: Son of Batman. He’s done it even in the recent Teen Titans run (issues 1-5, I haven’t read the ones that came after that, yet).
That said, I also understand why he’s been hostile to Jon these first times they’ve been together. He’s made it a point to emphasize the fact that they’re NOT friends. Okay, man, fine. That works cuz you guys just met, and you’re the son of batman, the most paranoid guy in the multiverse. But here’s the thing, Damian being an ass to Jon all the time is not gonna be enjoyable for long.
The next and only logical step here story wise is that Damian will change his attitude with Jon and just be actually friendly with him. What I want, and what a lot of fans would like, I reckon, is that Damian will have, over a story arc or something, come to realize that Jon isn’t just his unwilling ally or a tool to be used and manipulated - Jon is also his valued friend.
Damian: “Jon, why are you still here? You’ve no idea how dangerous this is! Are you trying to get yourself killed?”
Jon: “Idiot. I’m doing this because we’re friends!”
