Let me tell you about Batman: Son of the Demon, a graphic novel where Batman gets Talia Al Ghul Pregnant. You’re going to love it, and once you hear about the plot, you’ll know why. It is also used as the backstory for Damian Wayne.
The story begins how you’d expect: Batman swooping into an enemy hideout factory, thinking he’s bulletproof, and discovering he’s not. Even with a bullet in him, he crashes a chopper full of people, which bursts into flames, and for a man who doesn’t kill people, seemed a little ridiculous. He passes out on the street, and Talia, daughter of enemy Ra’s Al Ghul and Bruce Wayne’s friend with benefits, patches him up and brings him back to the Batcave. It’s amazing how many times Batman has been shot. What does he tell his doctor about all the bullet wounds? Skeet shooting accident? Duck hunting accident? His doctor must think his friends have terrible aim.
It turns out the honcho of the gang in the factory was some guy named Qayin, and he likes to carve Q’s into his people like he’s Zorro or something. Batman and Talia go visit Ra’s Al Ghul, as if having brunch with your arch enemy is just a normal thing, and it is revealed that Qayin killed Ra’s wife and Talia’s mother, and now revenge is sought after. They all decide to work together, under the condition that Batman, Bruce Wayne, accepts “my daughter’s hand”, as Ra’s Al Ghul puts it. He admits she never escaped his mind.
Batman: Son of the Demon has more twists than a bag of Twizzlers. The two lovers consummate their union… and by that, I mean they fornicate. And of course, Batman impregnates Talia Al Ghul. At this moment, I realized something I’ve been thinking all along, and that is how wonderful the artwork is in this book. The drawings at times are done very realistically. Talia’s face is always crisp and gorgeous, as well as Batman’s arms, clothing, etc.
The graphic novel Batman: Son of the Demon holds a unique significance in the Batman franchise. It explores the complex relationship between Batman and one of his greatest adversaries, Ra’s al Ghul, while introducing a new character, Damian Wayne, that would later play a crucial role in the Bat-family. Additionally, the novel’s captivating storyline and character development captivated fans and critics alike, solidifying its status as a masterpiece in the comic book industry. Furthermore, the novel challenged the traditional superhero narrative by delving into moral ambiguities and demonstrating the importance of personal connections in shaping a character’s fate.
A lot of twists happen. Talia gets pregnant, Qayin steals a weather-controlling satellite, and lots of other plot goodies that are too good to give away. Just know that this graphic novel is a winner that belongs on your shelf (Affiliate Link). This story also serves as the basis of Damian Wayne, who eventually becomes the new Robin.
