Nightwing #113

Overall- Dick is still training Ravager, and along with her, he busts up a stolen car ring. Dick also makes sure to remind Ravager repeatedly that she has to stop trying to kill everybody she fights. Dick and Ravager continue to fight street thugs, which annoys Ravager, because she considers common thugs to be beneath her. Ha! I like Ravager a lot here! Dick continues to try to temper Ravager's violent tactics throughout the course of the comic.

Meanwhile, Deathstroke tracks down Capt. Amy, and threatens to kill her husband and children if she doesn't tell him where Sophia was. When exactly did Capt. Amy get a hold of Sophia? Anyway, Amy reluctantly tells Deathstroke where the girl is, and Deathstroke takes Sophia back to his place. Dick and Ravager return back to Deathstroke's base, and Deathstroke tells Dick that if he doesn't start to train Ravager better, it would be Sophia who would pay the price.

It seems to me that Dick is going out of his way to dull Ravager's killer instinct, which is the opposite of what Deathstroke wanted him to do. I was glad to see Deathstroke realize what was going on and take steps to stop it. So far, I am pretty happy with this storyline, and although there are some things that do annoy me, such as Capt. Amy suddenly having custody of Sophia, this story is pretty sound for a change! For a score, I'll go with a 6 1/2 out of 10.
