In this critically lauded adaptation of the incredibly popular graphic novel, Batman learns that he has a son, the result of a night of passion with the Daughter of the Demon. He takes the boy under his wing, hoping to change him from the assassin he was being groomed to be. But Damian Wayne idolizes his grandfather, Ra's Al Ghul, and has been trained his entire young life by the League of Assassins, making him as deadly as he is brilliant. After Ra's was betrayed and his compound attacked, Damian was brought to Gotham City to be protected by his father until those responsible for the assault can be brought to justice.

Violent and noir-ish Batman is engaging but cynical.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that DCU: Son of Batman is a 2014 animated feature in which Bruce Wayne learns he has a hot-tempered son. Although this is an engaging story with high-quality animation, this film is most definitely not the campy Batman and Robin from the 1960s television show but a more noirish and cynical Batman and Gotham City. There is frequent fantasy-style violence: Characters are shown getting stabbed in the eyes and throats by swords and arrows, and in one instance Batman's son is shown stabbed in both his arms and pinned against a wall. There also are some sexual suggestions on occasion: The mother of Batman's child tells him, "I'm the only one who can bite you," Commissioner Gordon references a phone-sex number, and one of the main bad guys is shown bringing two prostitutes back to his apartment.
