Ed’s Winner for the Week: The Batwing Suit Failsafe - Luke got the AI with his dad’s voice working again on the Batwing suit and was told that he is not ready to take it into the field with Batwoman. He is still dealing with the trauma of getting shot and it is brave of this series to admit that being a superhero is not for everybody. Luke's tech skills still make him invaluable to team Batwoman and while I am sure this is not the last we have seen of Luke in that suit, this excursion into his mental health feels authentic and unique.
