So What's Going To Happen Between Damian and Bruce Wayne Then? (Spoilers)

We mentioned DC Comics' commissioned psychoanalysis of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn and Booster Gold as a way to promote Heroes In Crisis. But there was more in those documents to fillet.

Such as Batman's recent history, where it stated that Bruce Wayne has suffered an 'estrangement from his only son'.

Now in yesterday's Deathstroke #35, we had that genetic relationship confirmed…

Though in Teen Titans we have discovered that Damian has a secret of his own. Could the revelation of this be enough to create the estrangement?

We get the idea that Nightwing will be receiving a serious head wound in Batman #55 that may be related to all this, and that may lead to a long bout of amnesia in his ongoing series.

And whatever happens in Batman #55 to trigger all this, they are keeping it out of the solicitations. Could Damian go against Dick? And is this the result??
