I have a question: Does Talia still know Bruce's identity? She got killed at the end of Morrison's run, when and how did she come back (In Rebirth.)? And has Nyssa been seen or mentioned at all, or does she just not exist since the reboot?

In regards to Duncan, is or wasn't she the wife of Connor (Christopher Lambert.) from Highlander? I want to see just how GOOD I am.:).

Yes, Talia knows. She's always known. That's part of her Schtick (and Ra's). Afterall Bruce Wayne is publically raising her "son".

As to the Highlander reference. Yes, it refers to Duncan MacLeod of the Clan MacLeod from the TV show.

I know Connor came first, but he's been in four movies, or about eight hours of film. You can't compare the character work done with him compared to the 120 hours of character work done with Duncan.

As to my reference, I was once a convention where the show's second sword master F. Braun McAsh spoke. He said good action in a play or movie reveals character, and is not just performed because it's "cool". Since Duncan was an honorable character, he had rules when fighting his opponent. So if someone lost his or her sword, Duncan might give them the chance to get the sword back.

If someone lost the sword and Duncan killed them then and there, that was an indication that the villain of the week was so evil that Duncan was willing to break his rules.

Talia was down on the ground, unarmed and Selina straight up stabbed her. That says something about Selina's character. It says she's a street fighter and didn't learn sword fighting in the fencing salons of the rich and famous. It says she does what she does to win, "honor" be damned. A nice touch, but not something Duncan MacLeod would do.

Of that, I am not wrong.
