Re: Can Batman escape the "Third Act Curse"?
The Ra's flashback didn't involve near the leaps of logic and overwhelming load of coincidence as the Sandman flashback. Now that rumored "Bane was one of the ninjas at HQ when Bruce blew it up"? That's pretty much in line with Sandman.
"I defeated your uncle Victarion and his Iron Fleet off Fair Isle, the first time your father crowned himself. I held Storm's End against the power of the Reach for a year, and took Dragonstone from the Targaryens. I smashed Mance Rayder at the Wall, though he had twenty times my numbers. Tell me, turncloak, what battles has the Bastard of Bolton ever won that I should fear him?" - Stannis Baratheon
