The ultra secure link strait from the Batcave to the ear piece that Batman had in the armor of the cowl sounded. That could only mean trouble.
"Master, there is something seriously wrong with your son!" Zantanna shouted over the ruckuss in the background.
He could also hear Fire and Ice cackaling like they got hit with Joker gas, but even louder was Damien screaming.
"...Know all about sexual intercourse! I would never share it with something so hidieous as you wenches when there are such beutifal creatures as CatMAN! Try to..."
Bruce killed the connection. Words failed him.
"You four, to the cave now," Bruce pointed to Red Robin, Batgirl, Black Bat and Wonder Woman, "It seems that Damein got ripped from the closet and is throwing a tantrum."
"Wait, what?" Raven was too stunned.
"Alfred and I found that his anger problems are in part related to his trouble with opening up about his homosexuality. A lot of his formative years were spent in places of the world that have twisted standards about homosexuality," Bruce shook his head.
"Told you so," Red Robin shot at Nightwing.
Bruce sighed, he had their loyalty, but they retained their personalities; for better or worse.

Lex was raving. Mercy and Hope stood by the door as Lex ranted.
"The FREAKS! They are the ones responcible!" He tossed a phone against the wall, "They stole weapons cache and decided to try and take over The Amazon Island! Now The Amazons and Justice League are after my head!"
He stopped, stood straight up, righted a chair and took a seat.
"Mercy, my dear, you personally supervised the sterilization of the shipment designated for the German special forces correct?" Lex asked, "Hope you personally supervised the sterilization of the shipment designated for the Japanese Intelligence ministry's
special strike force didn't you?"
"Yes," both answered caustiously.
"And those tasks were completed weren't they?" Luthor asked.
"Yes," both said as they raised their eyebrows.
"And neither of you would lie to me about such important information," Lex asked, "Would you?"
"No, Mister Luthor!'
Luthor leaned forward resting his chin on his clasped hands.
"Enchatadora, Circe, Zatanna, Doctor Fate, Raven," Lex calmly counted off the names, "Those are the top five magic users that I have pissed off in my time. That list is only people, not ancient elemental forces. Four of them would work with the Amazon's
directly, four of them would gladly reveal what you two saw destroyed for the Amazons. Would either of you like to take bets on how long we have to live?"
Both Mercy and Hope looked at each other. Neither of them said it, but it was clear, their boss' mind had melted down. The entirety of the Justice League and many of the world's public police agencies were looking to arrest them, and he had gone bye-bye.
"So how do we help Barbara?" Dick asked.
"Raven, would you be willing to risk unforeseeable side effects to help your friend walk again?" Batman asked.
"What?" Both Dick and Raven asked.
"Raven is nearly identical from a size and musculature standpoint to Barbara," Bruce explained, "We would need to map her spinal collum in order to fix Barbara's. We would need to scan yours as well."
"What kind of side affects?" Raven asked.
"We would be looking at any number of neural emotional possibilities," Bruce said, "We are interfacing directly with your spines... There might be personality trait crossovers, there could be anything."
