I thought he was looking for a son...someone to fill a hole left by his murdered parents. But he wasn't looking for a son. He was looking for an assistant.
Batman left me here to rot. I was never the partner he wanted. That was obvious. This room broke me. But I was also remade here. Reborn. I finally escaped the pull of Gotham's gravity. And soon... I'm going to show Bruce Wayne... that he's got no chance in hell.
There's a hell of a lot more coming after that, Deathstroke. Because you work for me now.
I never wanted a partner. I never wanted a son. I never wanted you, Jason. No one did. No one does. This city tried to beat it into you relentlessly and you just never listened, Jason.
How long did you wait before replacing me, huh? A month? A week? I trusted you... And you just left me to die! You always told me Bruce... focus on what I want to achieve... and it'll happen. Well you want to know what I want now, huh? I want you dead.
