Synopsis for "Batman & Son, Part 2: Man-Bats of London"Edit

  • Synopsis not yet written.

Son of the Demon

  • This issue is reprinted in the Batman and Son collected edition.
  • This issue is part of the Morrison's Batman saga.
  • Bruce has a flashback to spending Thanksgiving with Dick Grayson and "Aunt Agatha." This is a reference to an obscure Golden Age story about Bruce's seldom-referenced aunt.[2]
  • Talia mentions that Ra's al Ghul is dead. This happened during Death and the Maidens.[3] He is eventually resurrected during the aptly named The Resurrection of Ra's al Ghul.[4] She also mentions her father choosing Bruce to produce his heir, which happened in one of their earliest adventures during Tales of the Demon.[5]
  • This issue heavily Retcons the conception of Ibn al Xu'ffasch, son of Bruce and Talia. Morrison establishes that Talia drugged Bruce to conceive a child as part of a eugenics experiment. In the original story, they were married and had a child through consensual intercourse.[6] Morrison responded to this in Wizard magazine, admitting that he simply got some of the details wrong.[7] This change is explained in continuity as one of the many after-effects of Superboy-Prime punching reality.[8] It's the same event that resurrected Jason Todd.[9]

For a long time, [DC] said [Son of the Demon] was out of continuity. Now it's just kind of out of continuity. I didn't actually read it before I started writing this. I messed up a lot of details, like Batman wasn't drugged when he was having sex with Talia and it didn't take place in the desert. I was relying on shaky memories. But now we have this new "Superboy punch" continuity. People still don't realize how important that single punch was to cover everyone's ass.
