Super Sons #2

Caught snooping by Lex Luthor, Robin and Superboy manage to get away thanks to a little misdirection and Damian threatening to blow up the LexCorp laboratory. Luthor's reaction to the entire encounter is puzzling.

Taking them for a pair of common kids (climbing up the sheer side of a skyscraper), this raises some questions. While it is plausible that Lex has no idea that Jonathan exists, has this version of Lex never run into Robin before? This seems extremely unlikely, and even if that's true wouldn't he still know what the Boy Wonder looks like by knowing his former enemies and their sidekicks?

The pair's impromptu team-up continues to have their issues while they investigate events which will eventually lead them into the path of Kid Amazo (and likely their fathers). Damian's dickish attitude to his new partner hasn't changed as this comic really pushes that side of his personality. Jonathan, meanwhile, remains mostly a blank slate desperately needing any kind of personality. For fans.
