Previously: On an adventure in a parallel dimension, Robin and Superboy saved a whole planet. In the process, Superboy was finally able to stop jumping and start flying!

 

What Happened:

Now that he can fly, it’s time for Superboy to show off a little bit. Damina and Jon take their fathers out to a field and show them what Jon is capable of. Using his powers, Jon hears that an armed robbery is in progress in Gotham, and flies off to stop it with permission from Bruce and Clark. While he’s gone, Bruce asks Damian about their recent extradimensional adventure. Clark mentions that Jon might need to slow down on his costumed capers with school starting up again, and Bruce agrees that Damian could be paying more attention to his studies with Alfred. Jon returns as they all head back into the city, and Robin joins him in the back of the truck that Bruce and Clark are driving. Jon uses the opportunity to show Damian what it feels like to fly. Damian tells him that he’s flown before, but thanked him for the reminder.

Suddenly, there’s a two page intermezzo, showing a fiery future and an adult Damian Wayne wearing his Batman costume, declaring that the apocalypse is back on. Back in the present, a few weeks after the opening scene, Superman wakes up his son one night. Batman goes to do the same with Damian, but he is already awake and in costume. They take their sons to a giant underwater facility the two have been building. They decided that if the boys were going to be a proper team, they would need a proper headquarters. Inside, Jon is ecstatic, immediately naming it “The Fortress of Attitude,” which Damian promptly denies. Damian is certain there’s a catch to all of this, and Batman confirms that he’s right. Damian is smart enough not to need school, but Bruce thinks that he has a lot to learn about social skills, and is now sending his son to the same private school that Jon attends!

 

One last thing: The design of future Damian will look familiar to fans of Morrison’s Batman, it appeared in Batman 666 and Batman Inc.

Summary
After a meandering story about strange silver-age villains on parallel worlds, the boys have a nice quiet issue with their fathers and plenty of hijinks, which is where this series really shines. The relationship Jon and Damian have continues to get better and is a delight to watch, as is the changing dynamic of the boys with their own fathers. The Fortress of Attitude and the new school plot are certain to bring more issues like this to the book, focusing on its strengths. I don’t know where Evil Future Bat Damian fits into all of this, but I’m certainly intrigued.
