What is Batman whining about now...?
I honestly have no idea why Batman is even bringing this up. It seems like the sort of mistake a new writer might put into a story if they weren't, like, familiar with Batman comics of the last decade or two, but Heroes In Crisis is being written by the current writer of Batman, who has been writing the series for years now.
Don't get me wrong, I'm sure Batman has a lot of trauma in his life--the deaths of his parents, his inability to be in a relationship with a woman who isn't a super-villain or doesn't die immediately upon finding out his secret identity, having seen a few thousand corpses on a nearly nightly basis, all that stuff with time travel and the multiverse, simple head trauma from getting beat up all the time--but if he's going to spend time unmasking to talk about his problems with a special therapy robot, "one-fifth of my sidekicks have died and then got better" is a weird one to foreground.
Nice art, though!
