    He'd know if it was Goldbug.

    Because Goldbug is gold

    Also he has a mouth guard

    Avada kedavra is sort of stupid in that it can miss (or even bounce back at the user!) and requires harm to the users' soul. Batman could also die from being shot with a gun in the right spot.

    It cant reflect unless theres specific magic or conditions in place. Murder in general damages the soul not just the killing curse.

    Which is why Hermione's signature spell has been the Memory Charm.

    Not to mention the usage of the Unforgivables is difficult for good people because their activation requires deep intent. The Killing Curse requires the wielder to want their target to die. Not a fleeting whim either, it has to be a deep, dark, burning wish to murder. Easy for sociopathic Death Eaters, not so much for normal people.

    "Harm to the users' soul" is more of a general "murdering people does this to you" thing in Rowling's work. Contrary to what various evangelicals thought, those books got kind of religious at times. (Similarly, the greatest evil is trying to extend your life and you need to learn to accept death.)

    To be honest, I didn't think about that. If one of Bruce's parents was killed specifically trying to protect Bruce (as opposed to protecting their money or themselves) than he'd be protected from the killing curse.

    Could have been, but the conversation says they're fighting. I don't think Granger would have the time to research Batman's past and determine that a hand sized time machine would give him the option to go back in time to save his parents and alter his own time line while she's being punched in the face by a grown man in a bat costume. And Batman's probably received enough lethal items from assorted foes over the years to trust anything given to him by a stranger who he's intent on fighting, particularly one that does magic.

    It depends on the specific slow-motion origin story, but in most of them one or both of his parents (who are dead) died to protect Bruce.
    It's fairly well established that this sort of sacrifice causes Avada Kedavra to screw up.

    A moot point, as the Harry Potter universe works by Time Loop rules. Anything Bruce or Hermione tries to do to save his parents would have already happened.

    You know what? Nanowrimo's cancelled on account of the world is stupid.

    And was thwarted by the Titans cheerfully shoving them into that alley.

    What?

    Consider that "Enzin" Jardin now embodies all of the luck of the crew of his hapless scout vessel, and the combined hopes of his people...

    (and being the beneficiary of the price paid by the former, what might he be called upon to do for the latter?)

    I dont think they're "the bad guys" but I'm liking the depiction of their culture and how it isnt good/bad but still could fit into those categories depending on the perspective taken.

    Yeah, remember that "neutrality" is not a thing in this conflict. Genocide is the explicit punishment from both sides for not flying under the correct banner.
