Then there is Talias character and plot which is also broken entirely by the eight year gap which as said was only necessary because blake had to be old enough to do what the story required.

That is sloppy if i ever saw it.
Yes, I did read it. But that doesn't mean it made any legitimate sense.

The eight year gap served a lot more purpose to the overall story - and Bruce as a character - than just to weave Blake's origin in. I'm sorry, if you weren't able to catch that, but I saw it pretty plainly.

It's like a non-consecutive 24-hour dance party.
