Aqua Man? ****ing Aqua Man?

He should open a sushi restaurant and call it a day because he's ****ing worthless unless he's related to Blackbeard and can help hunt pirate treasure.
I just browsed a list of DC characters (http://www.dccomics.com/characters) and...yeah...lots of suck. Batman is my favorite superhero though, when allowed to be properly "dark." Something I stumbled on while looking at that crappy list was this:


Damian Wayne



Born from a union between the Dark Knight and the daughter of one of his greatest enemies, Talia al Ghul, Damian Wayne is the ultimate poster boy of nature versus nurture—raised to become one of the world’s most dangerous and deadliest assassins and an unwilling chess piece in an ever-escalating battle between his parents.

Created and raised for years without Batman’s knowledge, Damian was taught by his mother and the League of Assassins to become a lethal fighting machine—at 10-years-old, he already far surpasses the skill and ability of many of the DC Universe’s greatest fighters. Upon discovering Damian’s existence, Batman took his son under his wing as the new Robin in order to train him and break him from Talia’s programming, terrified of what the boy could become otherwise.

Although many find Damian incredibly arrogant, his skills, abilities and intelligence do support his superior attitude. However, despite this, under his father’s tutelage, Damian is learning how to better relate to others while constantly struggling with the murderous tendencies instilled in him from a young age.

Although his behavior at times suggests otherwise, Damian desperately wants to become a hero like his father and fights every second to stay on the path of heroism lest his mother’s nature turn him to villainy.



That would make a more interesting "reboot" to me than Batman vs. . Sort of a Batman vs. Robin thing that follows a conflict between father and son, where they ultimately become Batman and Robin by the end of the movie.
