Hi! Could you please tell me when Damian and Dick first met?
Anonymous

The first time they formally met was during the Resurrection of “Ra’s Al Ghul” (Part 2 of 7 or Nightwing 138). He was summoned to Wayne Manor by Bruce who was stuck in Asia to protect Tim and Damian from ninjas in the batcave. Though he had heard of him before through probably both Tim and Bruce, his first thought after meeting Damian, who was wearing his "Batman and Son" Robin costume was “Notice Damian’s costume. Not to self: smack a clue into this kid.”

If only he knew he’d turn the kid into an actual Robin just a few short months later…

Do you know the film "Warm Bodies"? It's about a zombie who comes back to life because he falls in love with a girl and the girl loves him back. My point being: I'm not a girl, but I really love your tumblr and I would hate it if it turned into a living corpse. ;) Not that I want to be pushy or anything. :D Take care! P.S. Speaking of films: are you excited about the Batman and Son film DC has announced for 2014?

I have not seen the movie, though I’m definitely interested. I’m working on getting back to the deconstructing, but every time I say that I get more stuff to do at work.

In the meantime I going to continue to post anything Damian-related news I stumble across, like that miniseries and the keychain (and the movie that sadly I did not know about beforehand).

Finally! Our favorite brat will star on DC's new animated film in summer of 2014. For details, google: “Son of Batman” And “Batman: Assault on Arkham” Announced For 2014 DC Animated Universe Original Movie Slate. Can't wait! :D

I did not! And now that I know, 2014 can’t come soon enough!!

I’m also curious how this would fit in with this post Flashpoint Paradox DCAU where all the movies are in one big continuity.

Hey everyone! I’m still alive.

I just wanted to show you what I found at my local comic shop today. They’re apparently selling Damian Wayne key chain’s now!

A Google search also informs me they also come in figurine form (which I will have to check for next time I’m at my shop). I found the key chain on Amazon for $4.49 (but with a pricey $4,99 shipping) and the figurine on Amazon for $6.50 (but qualifies for the free Amazon shipping over $25).

That last picture is just to show off how much DC really likes Batman. 4 different key chains? Damn,

Heya! Checking for lifesigns. Have you read the two latest issue of Li'l Gotham? Did you like them? What do you think of the Li'l Gotham continuity Dustin Nguyen has created? Best wishes!

Hey there. Still alive. 

I actually just read them, and I love it. I’ve loved it since the beginning, but I stopped reading them for a bit when I realized they’d come out in print, and I didn’t want to pay for it twice. I did pay for these, and I’d pay for them multiple times if I could.

I think Nguyen has created a great world to give kids access to a Gotham that isn’t completely terrifying while being faithful to all of the characters. And though it may be aimed at kids, just like Tiny Titans it’s just as enjoyable for adults too. I also love how he has full access to the DCU pre-reboot, as I’m really starting to miss those versions of the characters.

Hello! I was wondering how were you doing, since you haven't been posting for a while. I miss your posts, but I understand you are busy.

Hi! I apologize if this has been sitting in my inbox, I’ve been checking my Tumblr on my phone and it was failing to tell me I had any messages, so I only saw this today when I checked the site proper. If you sent this today… well then nm.

I’ve been doing well! The whole thing with DeconstructingDamian hasn’t changed very much since my last admin post… work has shot my free time to hell. Also, having a steady income again has lead me to do things other than sit around at night like I had before. I’m also fighting apathy, not because I don’t love DeconstructingDamian anymore (I do!), but because I really don’t want to read “Resurrection of Ra’s Al Ghul” again. I was about to skip it when I saw this cryptic tweet from Chris Burnham (“Turns out that the Resurrection of R’as al Ghul is more important than you thought. (and not for the reason you’re thinking) :D”), and promptly committed myself to forcing through it again for the sake of Batman Inc v2.

This weekend is already booked, so I think I’m going to try to start doing pieces over my break again. Stay tuned.

Hi! First: Your blog is amazing! Thank you so much for that. Whenever I am unsure about anything Damian-related I always look it up here first XD Since I am working on my Damian Cosplay right now I came across one question I haven't seen answered anywhere: I know he has one Katana, but sometimes he is also seen with 2 swords. Are there any information about what weapons he has, exactly and if they have any specific backstory/meaning?

As for his swords—there is no specific backstory/meaning. To my knowledge he’s been seen with one sword several times (“Batman and Son” immediately comes to mind) and with two swords twice (Batgirl 17 and Batman and Robin 8). The fact that he can wield dual swords like that shows that he’s ambidextrous, though he probably has a hand he favors, my guess is the right as that’s the hand it’s primarily seen in. Batgirl is the only time he’s seen with his swords in the field (I believe, I’m doing this all off memory, so someone correct me if I’m wrong). My headcanon (although there is art that specifically disproves this) is that he keeps the swords under his cape.

Um, I just wanted to ask, because fandom has me a little confused... Is Damian a genetically engineered human? As in, he's not a clone, right? (Between the genetically engineered womb thing and the two different versions of how he was conceived I'm a bit lost >.>)
Anonymous

Nothing about Damian’s life makes sense, unfortunately. Comics never help things make sense, because they like to make life more confusing.

In both the Son of the Demon and Batman Inc, Talia and Bruce bump uglies. But while in Son of the Demon Talia has Damian the old fashioned way, in Morrison’s Batman arc (and Tomasi’s slightly altered backstory in Batman and Robin v2 0 goes with this), Talia took Bruce’s… genetic information from the deed and incubated him in an artificial womb.

As for the clone part, no, Damian is not a clone. However, Damian has a clone.

Batman and Robin 12

He plays a bigger part in Batman Inc v2, but as I’m trying to keep this above a cut that’s all I’ll say on the matter.

Redwing was also the big fan nickname for this Tim's unternet costume

(re: this ask)

I did not know this.

Man that costume was so much better than his real one.

No, I’m not going anywhere! I just wanted to get everyone’s attention. Do I have it? Good.

So since I started this blog in June of last year, I’ve been pretty much on top of things. I used to have the queue going for multiple posts a day, and I never really let it dry out until Sandy when I had no power to post. Since Sandy, I know the posts have gotten longer and longer with nothing in the middle, and I apologize for that.

Basically, the big catalyst here is that I’ve got a 9-5 job now, and I’m not doing so well balancing what little free time I have left. When I started the blog I was unemployed and thus had copious amounts of free time to post about Damian all day long. Now, I have a couple hours to comb through things, and a lot of the times posting here has been put on the back-burner. This is partially due to the content (I hate both Battle and Resurrection), but mostly due to life just getting the best of me.

I am not going anywhere. I still plan on continuing this blog until I catch up to the DCnU, and then some. However, things have got to change from how I currently run it for both my sake and yours.

So from now on posts may be a bit more sporadic. I’m going to try to update as frequently as I’m able, but I can no longer make promises on how frequent “frequent” is, but whenever I do fill the queue I will try to fill it with at least 2 weeks worth of content (that’s 14 posts).

I will try to answer asks as soon as I get them, my goal is to answer them within a week they’re asked. I cannot promise this, but that is my goal.

I apologize for any inconvenience, but that’s how I have to play this for my sanity.

Resurrection of Ra’s Al Ghul will commence as soon as I finish chapter 2 (reading a chapter about fighting dead Robins in a graveyard the day after Batman and Robin v2 18 came out was not a good idea, and has been the primary reason I haven’t picked it up since).

Hi I just noticed you accidentally referred to "Red Bird" as "Redwing" in both of your today's posts. (To be frank, I prefer your version a tad better.:P)

(re: here (spoilers in the link))

Whoops, yes I did! I think I subconsciously blocked it out since the Redbird is Robin’s car/bike and I always thought it was strange that he named himself after Tim’s mode of transportation.

Apparently, Redwing was a Teen Titan from the 90s, whose existence was wiped out during Zero Hour. It’s also the name of the Amalgam universe’s Robin/Angel hybrid. So… it might actually work.
