The Jason Todd podcast on the front page got me thinking that Damian really shouldn't be Robin anymore. He is working with everyone other than Batman at this point and Batman in Detective Comics has an entire team going without even mentioning Damian and Duke from We Are Robin is his main side kick in at least All Star Batman. Meanwhile Damian is in the main character in Teen Titans, co lead in Super Sons with Jonathan Kent, and it seems like Nightwing for the foreseeable future is going to be a Dick and Damian team up book . I get for Super Sons they want it be Superboy and Robin, but it just seems super odd that Batman and Robin almost never interact.
My mind was blown on how long Damian has been around. When Dan said that I was like no way and went to wikipedia and sure enough Batman and Son was in 2006.
Speaking of Damian you mentioned that Jason was hated because he was a dick. Damian has always been a dick by design and he's a very popular character. Other than Death in the Family I've never read any Jason as Robin stories.do you think it was less the character's fault and more the writer's that he was so hated? For instance I've noticed that while Grant Morrison and Peter Tomasi have been really good at writing Damian there are a few writers over there that make him incredibly unlikable. I'm thinking the current incarnation of the Teen Titans for instance. Can't stand Damian there, but I am loving Super Sons so far.
Breath of the Wild is the best game I have ever played. Not perfect. Rained too damn much. Ganon is like the easiest enemy in this game to beat. Those fucking Lynels were about a thousand times harder to kill unless you used an ancient arrow. But still the best game I have ever played.
Downloaded Fast RMX. It's a fun F-Zero clone. For 19.99 it's worth it. Gonna pick up Blaster Master Zero too.
There are supposed to be a bunch of deleted scenes unreleased that explain the political situation. That's probably true because the novelization does explain it. Basically the New Republic and the Empire ended their war with a peace treaty about a year after Return of the Jedi. The First Order basically sounds like if the Nazis who fled to South America rebuilt and came back. Leia saw this as an issue. She is supposed to be like a Winston Churchill figure while the New Republic government wants to avoid armed conflict. So she leaves to start a private militia which is the Resistance.
