Nightwing #112

Overall- Deathstroke arrives at Dick's hotel room, and asks Dick why he wanted to see him. Dick acts crazy, and tells Deathstroke that he was no longer one of the good guys, he now considered himself a mercenary. To prove how "crazy" he was, Dick attacks Deathstroke, knocking Deathstroke's head through a mirror, which brings Deathstroke's daughter, Ravager, into the fight. The arrival of Ravager distracts Dick long enough to allow Deathstroke to knock him down and out of the fight. Before leaving, Dick mentions Deathstroke's lousy record for keeping his children alive. With that, he wishes Ravager luck, and turns to leave.

Deathstroke, who is stung by the comment about his 2(at the time)dead sons, tells Dick that if he wants to prove that he is a bad guy now he should train Ravager. Deathstroke tells Dick that if he teaches Ravager everything he knows, he'll consider Dick an ally. OK, I'm not sure where this is going, but I'll roll with it...

Dick, who is now dressed in a new costume, takes Ravager to the boarding house the mobsters daughter, Sophia, was placed in. Dick then proceeds to rescue Sophia, and stops Ravager from killing one of the guards. After leaving, Dick disciplines Ravager for using excessive force. Ravager explains that that's the only way she knows, and Dick tells her that she has to learn self control. Dick takes the girls to Huntress, but Huntress says she can't babysit the two girls. She tells Dick to take care of the girls himself, since they are his responsibility. Dick drops Sophia off somewhere, and returns to Deathstroke with Ravager.

All in all, this wasn't a terrible comic, and I really liked the addition of Ravager to this comic(plus Deathstroke was in it, which always pleases me). At this point, I still don't know what Dick's plan is, and why he has decided that he's a villain, but I'm willing to give this storyline the benefit of the doubt, as long as Deathstroke sticks around. For a score, I'll go with a 6 1/2 out of 10.
