Supergirl/Wonder Girl conclusion: Actually calling him "Dickbat" is unbelievably awkward.

The topic of who in the DC Universe knows that Bruce Wayne is Batman has been up for debate for years now, and now that debate can expand into who knows Dick Grayson is Batman. Probably everyone who knew the former, and then some. (For a start, check out Lorendiac's List of same from Comics Should Be Good.)

Part of the debate is, that during the early, good, Wolfman/Perez Teen Titans days, the full roster of Titans seemed to be privy to Batman's identity. Which eventually led to Terra, and Deathstroke, getting the secret. Which probably led to the Batman editors having a cow that Teen Titans was letting the cat out of the bag. Plus, if you are OK with the idea of Danny Chase maybe knowing Bruce Wayne is Batman; you need to sit down and seriously re-evaluate where you are in life.

While I figure Blackest Night is going to be the big crossover while it's ongoing; I'm kind of surprised DC hasn't tried to expand Damian/Robin into some event thing. I know he's appeared in Booster Gold, and is going to be in Batgirl later, but Robin versus the Teen Titans is the obvious one. It sure couldn't hurt that book any...but it may be interesting to see that little brat interact with say, Wonder Woman. Or the returned Superboy, since the Damian/Connor relationship would be a far cry from Connor and Tim's. Or the Secret Six. That kid would be their leader in fifteen minutes.

Of course, I say this, but since Wednesday's Comics and Final Crisis: Escape both ended, the only DC book on my pull list? Warlord.

That's it for this particular series of strips: it was fun, but the girls didn't have enough articulation for a lot of body language. Plus the combination of my crummy lighting and their glossy skintones wasn't great. Previous episodes: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven and eight.
