    I thought this was waaay better than the first volume, mainly because the whole ridiculousdid Bruce actually get Mother to create a new sidekick for himthing wasn t being pushed as a plausible explanation, at least as much in this Because puh lease Nobody s falling for that And, yeah, this was probably a tad too long though not as long as Batman Eternal , but this wasfun in that you got to see all of the Batkids interacting with each other Even if I had some problems with I thought this was waaay better than the first volume, mainly because the whole ridiculousdid Bruce actually get Mother to create a new sidekick for himthing wasn t being pushed as a plausible explanation, at least as much in this Because puh lease Nobody s falling for that And, yeah, this was probably a tad too long though not as long as Batman Eternal , but this wasfun in that you got to see all of the Batkids interacting with each other Even if I had some problems with the plot, I still enjoyed seeing everyone together As for the main villain Looks like Mother might be one of those Ra s al Ghul ish characters that you can never quite kill, so I m betting she shows up again in the future I also liked the inclusion of Midnighter Azrael in the storyline I think they added a little extra oomph to the overall plot Oh, and Jason s flashback with Mother s toxin Yeah, I really thought that was kinda brilliant In the end, when I compared it to my feelings on the Batman Eternal stuff, I thought this was a superior closing volume Then again, that could just be Bat burnout talking

    Better than volume 1 All of the Bat sidekicks are trying to stop the one person that Batman couldn t defeat, Mother She s a master at brainwashing children and has this plot to brainwash all the children in the world to make them stronger Well written with a rotating group of great artists.

    3.5 stars.I just get the feeling that either Snyder and Tynion hate Cassandra or they just don t know what to do with her because I ve hated her characterization since the first volume of this series Cassandra Cain is one of my top 5 favorite comic book characters I say that to preface that I m probablyinclined to be pissed about this book s butchering ret con of her origin than the average reader Cassandra Cain is the child of David Cain and Shiva She was raised in silence, learned to 3.5 stars.I just get the feeling that either Snyder and Tynion hate Cassandra or they just don t know

probablyinclined to be pissed about this book s butchering ret con of her origin than the average reader Cassandra Cain is the child of David Cain and Shiva She was raised in silence, learned to understand others through body language alone and was made to kill at a very young age The very first time her father made her assassinate someone, she realized what she was made to do, was horrified and she ran away She then ran into Oracle during the No Man s Land business and subsequently took over being Batgirl under Bruce Wayne s tutelage She was given a gift to understand others and think the same way you or I do and it threw off her fighting style for a while but eventually, she adjusted and even defeated Shiva, then thought to be the best fighter in the DC universe She learned to communicate verbally and she learned to read She developed all of this in her own solo series Now, let s talk about Orphan.Orphan is the child of David Cain and I m not sure if Shiva is her mother David Cain was traumatized and turned into a servant for Mother David gave Cassandra to Mother to be turned into a weapon Cassandra doesn t speak much Cassandra grew up in assassin school Cassandra was never adopted by Bruce Wayne Cassandra was never taken under Barbara Gordon s wing and never learned to stick up for herself Cassandra didn t get an apartment in Bludhaven and take over protecting a city Cassandra never defied Bruce Wayne s orders and befriended Stephanie Brown anyway Cassandra never learned to grieve Orphan s story is all about her relationship to David Cain and what the Mother made her do For some reason, Tynion and Snyder thought it would beinteresting to essentially turn my daughter Cass into The Winter Soldier 2.0 complete with a storyline straight out of the recent Captain America Civil War film I m pretty sure this book came out first but my point is Cassandra Cain is not Bucky Cassandra Cain was not the result of her father joining a cult Cain turned her into a weapon because of his own selfishness There is a muchcomplicated, nuanced relationship in the pre 52 and Snyder and Tynion ignored that for this story I don t understand why In addition to that, she s barely gotten any development in Detective Comics either She just fights with tiny, minuscule character moments thrown in I miss my daughter I miss her relationship with Bruce and Stephanie Tynion basically stole her family and now she s about as close to Bruce and Stephanie as Clayface is and that s a travesty.Anyway, on to the rest of this book I read the first volume a little while ago so I have no clue why I had so much trouble following what was going on in this one The stuff with Tim, Jason and Azrael threw me off so much and eventually my eyes just glazed over I don t love any of the art in this book So, I didn t enjoy looking at it and when I was confused about the events, I didn t care enough to examine them closer It s a shame because I quite enjoy Tim and Jason s chemistry.The bits with Bruce s past were pretty interesting The parts with Dick and Helena were confusing to me because I m pretty sure they pertain to the last dregs of Grayson and I haven t finished that series yet Oddly enough, I m not a huge fan of that version of Helena because, while she is very pretty, she s basically just completely untrustworthy Her interactions with Dick basically consist of Dick Why did you lie to me Helena I have my reasonsDick That s very, very not cool.Helena We have a job to do I ll explain later.Dick grumpy face Well, okay then.That s their entire relationship here and in Grayson Yawns The parts with Harper were very, very good While I am mad that they pulled a Winter Soldier and the big crux of this was view spoiler Cass being made to kill Harper s mother hide spoiler I quite like Harper as a character I love her relationship with Cass and would gladly read a solo book about Harper I would gladly read a book about her and Cass with my daughter s characterization and origin story restored Damian showed up which was neat He gave a rousing, inspirational speech which was unexpected The whole purpose being to rally the troops because Bruce let them be their own windkeepers It was fine, if cliche I expected Dick to be the one to do that I really loved Midnighter Like really, really loved Midnighter More than anything, I just wanted to readabout that character I like his banter with Dick Ultimately, the reason this gets 3.5 stars is because I really ended up liking the plot of this book The Mother is an interesting villain and her origin story was really well done I feel like I understand why she did everything that she did There s something so terrifying to me about a world full of murderous children I liked that the Batfam came together without Bruce to save the day I enjoy the concept of this book I just hate that Cass character was regressed in this storyline and that her screwed up, ret conned origin story is carrying over into Rebirth I want my daughter back If you enjoyed the first volume, you ll probably enjoy this one

    This directly picks up from volume 1 so you can t just dive into this without reading that otherwise you re gonna be hella lost The batfam are still dealing with Mother who is brainwashing kids into killing their parents so they can be the best damn killers there is Mother is such a messed up character even scarecrow is scared of her so she s a really good villain to pit against the batfam as Mother adopts and trains orphans so does Batman so the robins are kind of having a bit of an identity This directly picks up from volume 1 so you can t just dive into this without reading that otherwise you re gonna be hella lost The batfam are still dealing with Mother who is brainwashing kids into killing their parents so they can be the best damn killers there is Mother is such a messed up character even scarecrow is scared of her so she s a really good villain to pit against the batfam as Mother adopts and trains orphans so does Batman so the robins are kind of having a bit of an identity crisis at the same time This is such an amazing read i really loved it, i love the Batfam and how they all work together especially Todd and Drake it s just sweet Midnighter is pretty awesome in this, he s actually written better than Midnighter s own series, and it s probably the only time where Jean Paul didn t annoy the shit out of me, so that s an achievement all on its own Definitely worth picking up, such an interesting story, of how Mother and Batman aren t a million miles away from each other and how things could have turned out differently, but it s a beaut of a read, especially for Batfam fans

    3.5 MUCH better than Vol 1 Still way too long, but thankfully a lotenjoyable than Batman Robin Eternal, Volume 1 I LOVE Cass, and this was a lot about her.

    2.5 stars sighs The artwork is amazing, the action scenes are asskicking, I m glad female characters both good and bad get a lot of attention in this volume, but the plot itself is just.I can t get into this story line at all AT ALL.Now I think I can handle Batman stories only when they were penned by the few of my favorite comic authors sighs

    75th book read in 2018.Number 152 out of 735 on my all time book list.Very satisfying complex story here.

    While the action in this amps up considerably from the first volume and they get rid of the dumb nonsense about Batman potentially being bad , this still doesn t ever quite become a necessary event It s still extremely slow moving This entire story could ve been 12 issues long, but instead it s 26 The central idea of the various Robins coming together to stop a threat that Batman couldn t handle alone is a solid starting point, but it just never explores that idea well enough It s another i While the action in this amps up considerably from the first volume and they get rid of the dumb nonsense about Batman potentially being bad , this still doesn t ever quite become a necessary event It s still extremely slow moving This entire story could ve been 12 issues long, but instead it s 26 The central idea of the various Robins coming together to stop a threat that Batman couldn t handle alone is a solid starting point, but it just never explores that idea well enough It s another instance of having too many writers working on a single story.Another problem is how much this story relies on Harper Row, potentially my least favorite new character in all of the New 52 Not only is it extremely unbelievable that an annoying teenage tech wizard would somehow be an incredible fighter despite never having thrown a punch in her life, but this book retcons her into being directly connected to Batman When she was introduced, she was just a random kid who used her tech ability to follow Batman around Gotham It s just too much of a coincidence that she s also hugely important to him.Also, SPOILER ALERT for the rest of this, but I just gotta complain about something that requires specifics.Something that is truly insane in this story, and that I see a lot in comics, is how quickly superheroes forgive murderers who are now on their side It s revealed in this book that Cassandra Cain, while still working on behalf of the villain Mother, murdered Harper Row s mom She wasn t under hypnosis or mind control or anything She was brainwashed in a way, I guess, but still perfectly aware of her actions She fully murdered Harper s beloved mother And yet, Harper forgives her for it, like, pronto Because they re on the same team now, and Harper s like I know you re not that person any WHAT SHE KILLED YOUR MOM YOU VE KNOWN HER FOR A WEEK Even if I found out my best friend killed my mom years ago, I m pretty sure I d at least be like Sorry, man, I don t think I can hang out with you for a few years Gotta, y know, PROCESS THE FACT THAT YOU KILLED MY MOM Everyone in this story is a psychopath.So there, that s it This is yet another skippable late stage New 52 entry from Scott Snyder and company Oh well

    Okay So this is the second volume of this series, and continues the whole Mother Story arc I quite liked the first volume, but this one was okay The ending I think was quite satisfying is it the end it send end on the last page , my main gripe however is that this could have been cut down in issues and it would have beencohesive We also get to learnabout Mother, her intentions and back story it made her interesting, but in the end if they had a classic batman villain, it would Okay So this is the second volume of this series, and continues the whole Mother Story arc I quite liked the first volume, but this one was okay The ending I think was quite satisfying is it the end it send end on the last page , my main gripe however is that this could have been cut down in issues and it would have beencohesive We also get to learnabout Mother, her intentions and back story it made her interesting, but in the end if they had a classic batman villain, it would have beenexciting In the end, it had a satisfying finish, but the overall story could have been better
