Continued from last issue, Robin shares his origin (but only with himself due to Batman not allowing him to reveal his identity to the others), Miss Martian, and just what Cadimus was doing to Superboy.

What they got right: Miss Martian’s origin was changed (unless she’s lying) but it makes sense for this version and the target age group. Superboy’s “training” is up for interpretation as too whether he was  meant to be used for good or evil if you think about it (doesn’t change the fact that Cadmus as a whole didn’t have issues) and they portray an “evil Superman” rather well.

What they got wrong: For some reason, Dick has an aunt, uncle, and cousin added to his origin, with the uncle permanently paralyzed. There is no purpose for this addition so I don’t know why they bothered.

Recommendation: This continues to be an exceptional comic and tie-in to the cartoon. Very much recommended.

I chose this one because I like how Batman's cape is used to create panels.

A would be comic writer looking to organize his living space as well as his thoughts. So I have a blog for each goal. :)
