    I don't get it. What is there to gain from having Bruce holding back the millionth secret?

    But The Rest of the family better not just disappear or get owned off panel so those two can shine.

    I'm Still a bit salty how Dick, Jason & Damian Were Off paneled by bane
    Yeah, Bluebird and Lark. Not Dick and Damian, or Dick and Jason, or Tim and Babs, or Damian and Babs, or any combination of allies readers actually care about. Those losers aren't important enough for this!

    I would have settled for Batwing and Hawkfire over those two. And those two aren't even in my top 100 favorite heroes!

    At least those guys have a little bit of merit. At least I don't feel ripped off whenever I see them show up.

    I didn't know Snyder had an account here.

    But yes, Snyder seems to acknowledge the Batfamily only if Bruce is dead or amnesiac. At least King acknowledged them in that issue where they went to eat fast food and then fridged them, but it's the thought that counts.

    What's this obsession everyone has with the bat family being involved in everything Batman does. The story is built around him not them, let them do their own thing. Also Batman's secrets are his own, and if he chooses to share them or not with others is his perogotive. Like no one else in the DC universe doesn't have or keep secrets.

    The problem isn't that he's keeping secrets though. It's that Snyder has overused this particular plot device in recent years so its become stale. Its ALWAYS some dark secret from his past and its ALWAYS something that comes back and bites him in the butt later. Frankly I was hoping for something different here.

    Well, in my case I just want them involved because my favorite members of the Batclan don't HAVE solo books, and I find pretty much EVERY member infinitely more interesting than Batman. Not to mention, I feel that for the most part, his stories are better when the Batfam is around. If you're curious, my favorite Batman story is No Man's Land.

    And for the secrets, at this point, it's just played out. We've seen Bruce or Dick keeping secrets from their friends and that biting them in the ass SO MANY TIMES, its gotten boring.

    They could appear from time to time, though, especially in these big events. What pisses people off is that they sweep up Bruce's allies under the rug in favor of the creator's new OCs.

    I'm more annoyed that its not someone else heading up this event to be honest and that it starts off with yet another dark secret of Bruce's coming back to haunt him. That plot device is so played out.

    Maybe the reason the Bat-clan isn't featuring on Dark Days it's because the boys are so irritated by "There is something I haven't told you..." that they left Bruce to solve his mess

    Jason as he exits the scene towards a door with a "RATHO" written on it: Holy fvck Batman!

    Actually this reminds me of an episode of How I Met Your Mother.

    I don't think the problem is that Snyder's overused it, because I can only recall 2-3 times it's happened over the course of his run to various degrees, but that it's just such an overused trope for Batman in general.

    Name that character whose darkest secrets ever come back at him/her/it in pretty much every arc under the same writer.

    Because they're an important part of Batman's mythos that should be included in his stories sometimes for everyone's benefit. They can't spend decades building up a Bat-Family and just throw it to the wind so a few "fresh new" creations can take their spots. There's a fan expectation for those characters to be used and historically it leads to good stories, so they might as well do it.
