Enjoying this arc so far. Hard to get a flow reading this issue with nagging questions though. Not the best at Bat trivia. Maybe some MB'ers know the quick answers w/o me surfing around blindly for answers...

Is Nanda Parbat a real world legend like Xanadu?

Know Merlyn and passing familiar with Sensei. Who are the other assassins?


Here's a rhetorical one, that we'll get answered next ish. Who has the stronger poker face? Robin & Damian have been let go or Batman wouldn't show Ra's? Robin & Damian are being held still 'til Ra's gets what he wants?

Was the term THOGAL used in 52?

Artistic license has Bat-binoculars looking at the bridge at a wrong angle? And is showing a lighted torch that should also be seen with the naked(readers) eye? The assassins want to stop the monk because they'll be trapped in? Batman's swinging catch of the monk seems ridiculously far fetched distance wise & pendulum arc wise?

His shoulder chainmail is first seen this issue?

Someone else fell Merlyn?

Who is Rama Kushna and the Old Grey Ghost again?

Was Ra's father revealed a big shocker to longtime readers?

DaughterS? Plural? Talia and...?

Assume Sensei's (bloodiless) staff stabbed him at unseen speed?

"...as a thorn in OUR side." How many times has Sensei met Batman?

That was a wickedly cool attle! And that "lasting longer than a minute" was a wickedly cool topper line, eh?

Ra's did a mind switch thingee awfully easily didnt he? Probably will return when everyone leaves. Save to assume, it was probably a humor moment to walk away when he actually came for the pool.

Batman dodged as Sensei fell in the pool, Batman seemingly fell to the side, Batman grips the bank as he rose but surprisingly is seen IN the pool too? Is that the sequence to be interpretted?

Thanks in advance.

No, it's from the 1960s and 1970s Deadman stories, though it is based loosely on Tibet and the legend of Shangri-La.

>
> Who is Rama Kushna and the Old Grey Ghost again?

Rama Kushna is the goddess of Nada Parbat, a female spirit of light and enlightenment. The old grey ghost is the DC hero Deadman.

> Was Ra's father revealed a big shocker to longtime readers?

Yes, in that the Sensei was in the past always seen as a rebellious subordinate of Ra's.

> DaughterS? Plural? Talia and...?

Nyssa al-Ghul, who actually killed Ra's in Death and the Maidens. Nyssa was also seen in the Injustice Society arc in JSA CLassified #7-9, and died in the last few issues of the most recent Batgirl title.

> "...as a thorn in OUR side." How many times has Sensei met Batman?

The Sensei battled Batman and Ra's in an old Denny O'Neil story in the late 1970s, which also ended in the Sensei's seeming death.
