New Teen titans previews are out, Art is looking better each issue ^^
looks really fun, check it out ^^
Really all you are holding against Damian is his Al Ghul bloodline not his actions.
Plus he is as much Wayne as he is Al Ghul and has given his life twice for good. What else does he have to do?

Why would Bruce trust current Tim over Damian? Damian has done just as much and sacrificed more to prove and gain his trust and his morality and principles are a lot more solid than a guy who selfishly sold out his parents for personally gain and has yet to show any remorse for his actions.
Dick Damian Jason/Cass then Tim and Steph
When Tim first put the Teen Titans team together in the New 52 Bruce didn't question him(only after things started going south did he do so).
On the flip side when Damian assembled the current team Bruce wanted them to be 'supervised', which of course Damian shot down. If Bruce trusted Damian as much as Tim or more, I don't believe he would have spoke those terms.
Bruce has shown that he trusts Jason with the Outlaws in a recent issue. Though you could make a strong case for Bruce trusting Damian more than Jason, it's pretty close in that regard.
Now if we were to add the entire fam in there as well I see it being something like; Alfred>Dick>Tim>>Kate>Damian=Jason=Cass>Luke>Steph =Duke=Harper=Ace
Babs is the only one I am uncertain about, New52/Rebirth wise.
Damian on the other hand is still a kid and tends to act quite impulsive and reckless from time to time.

^agreed. I also think Bruce seems to trust Damian less and he wanted to supervise Damian's TT is because Damian is still a child. Plus he's experienced it first hand hpw Damian is difficult in teamwork.
Anyway I would like to justify Dick said Real Son becuase he's talking to Damian and that kid has been spouting off the True Heir blah blah. Meanwhile Bruce probably was not in his right mind when he said Son or King most likely just wanted to emphasize how bad the situation was, not trying to trigger some of the fans.
I personally am not that bothered with those. Mostly because I was more focused on the later pages full of feels in Nightwing and I was just happy Damian was mentioned in main Batman title. Although I agree with you guys and also see the boys are all his sons, biological or not. The reduced timeline probably has a factor, maybe the current Bruce thinks of himself as his mentor to the boys? Idk. Seems unlikely. That aside I believe he cares for all of them the same, no matter if he calls them his sons/children or not.

Has tim really had more time with Bruce cos if I recall he spent less than a year with him before leaving.
A lot is cos of Damian's age and looking out or not putting a 10 yer old in charge of Batman Inc isn't about trust. It's about frigging get serious same with unsupervised leader of a teen group. You won't bug a 16/17year old but with 13 year old who is your only child you fret.
Bruce has more reasons to trust Damian than he does Tim and Jason being put/left in charge of a group is an age thing not a trust thing.
Bruce doesn't trust in anyone, not completely...always ends lying all of them or manipulated them
