Bruce Wayne Returns With A New Look In "Batman, Inc."

Looks like he'll be donning his old uniform...Sort of



Bruce Wayne will not only be returning to DC comics titles this fall, but he will do so donning a piece of his old uniform. If you miss the old Batman costume with the bright yellow circle at the center of his chest (which always reminded me of a target), then you're in luck. When Bruce returns this fall in Grant Morrison's "Batman, Inc.,"  he will do so leading a team of Batmen wearing his old symbol. DC recently revealed artist Yanick Paquette's stunning cover image for Morrison's "Batman Inc." featured above, showcasing Bruce as he glides through the air, with an array of Bats flying behind him.

To further celebrate the return of the character, DC will be putting out a series of different one shots with interlocking covers by artist Shane Davis. You can check the image of the covers below.
 
 
What do you guys think of Bruce's new (or should I say, old) look? Will you be reading "Batman, Inc." this November? Will you be picking up the one-shots?

Do you mean new uniform? The Costume is all new, The Symbol is old. He should only use the black bat symbol.

I prefer Dick Grayson's current Batman costume, as the yellow circle always looked silly too me.. But I'll be reading it, definitely.

Never understood why there was yellow in his costume... isn't he supposed to be hiding in the shadows? Anyways, I guess I'm just too used to the old costume...

will be picking/reading. Yanick's art looks so good.

Like Red Hood said in his 3 issue arc, "it's all about the brand" The Yellow Ellipse Bat-symbol is Batman's brand, hence Batman Incorporated

Posted by doordoor123

wait wait wait. Hes leading a group that has each member also wearing the symbol? Where did you hear this? At comic con Morrison just said that he would be teaming up with different heroes in this book. Well im excited for it. But man, that adds another batman book to already huge batman book collection lol

I'm a little disappointed with the interlocking covers. I was hoping for a more dynamic image like the current JLA/JSA crossover, but it's just the characters standing around with some bats, there's no need for connection because there's not much there. Individually they're pretty fine covers but a bit useless as a connecting cover. 
And on Batman Inc., I'm not the first to say it, Grant Morrison + Batman = definite read.

Glad to see that old costume come back. It's been ages. I'm also looking forward to Bruce's return.

You know what pisses me off? Everyone making a big deal out of Batman getting a new costume... then you look at it, and the change is the logo is slightly different. What's the point?
Posted by goldenkey

It's stupid.  Miller made the point of it being a target way back when and it's just dumb to have it.  Plus it looks stupid. 

Posted by oiHooliganismoi

yay for the throwback to keaton's batman!! best batman costume ever.. i hope he gets a batmobile that looks like keaton's also

Batman's a target in general he has big ears a cape and the whole target thing is that they would shoot in the most armored part of his body instead of his head. Even if he didn't have a yellow oval he would still run the risk of getting shot.

It seems allot of people care about Batman's package because there allot of comments on different sites saying the same thing.
Posted by Jordanstine

My eyesight ain't that color coordinated, but is Batman still wearing his underwear panties on the outside of his costume?  Or did DC finally remove it for the more "modern" effect?
 
 
 
Is Batman just wearing straight tights without the panties, or are they still there?

@Desiderina Redhead: Fascinating. I wonder if Ms. Quinzel will be distracted by the same thing... :) 
 
Fascinating. I believe the issue # was 327 when they did this the first time....  
 
To answer the questions posited, in no particular order, Yes, No, and quite possibly. 
 
My contention, and I wish I had stated it at the time I had the attention of the entire audience and the panel at the Batman: The Return panel at 'Con, is that DC is publishing as many Bat books as they can, in order to increase my spending to the exclusion of all else. Well done, DC!!! 
 
I blame Mike Marts. Of course, I'll have wonderful things to say about him if he buys my Batman story :)

It is rather emphasised...

Not too bothered about the costume,what will really matter is the story.

Posted by Crimson Eagle

I like this suit.

@.Mistress Redhead.: To be fair, I'm a dude and I noticed it too... xP 
 
Interlocking covers look pretty awesome, can't wait to see them in colour!
Posted by imaginaryman

Posted by batmanboy11

Posted by harleyquinnhawkgirl

Batman: Dark Knight #1 
 I'm pretty sure Finch got rid of them completely so it's straight tight like things.

I guess its a good thing that they finaly did that. No more Batman underwear jokes! I think it'll look odd for a while though.

Never a fan of the Yellow target really, always preferred the black bat on grey since although they say it's bullet proof and to draw the gun fire, isn't he supposed to be hidden in the shadows...yellow doesn't hide well

I'd like the suit more if it didn't have those lines going down his upper torso and legs

I guess the logic is if Stephanie can get shot in the head and live, Dick can too.

Cant wait to get the issues in nov

Posted by sora_thekey

I do think it's giving homage to the old costume but I wouldn't say it's the same...
There's a creasing around the front of his chest and down his legs, that reminds me of the X-Men movies' uniforms... In the movie each character had a different color...
 
I like this new costume... Before it looked like he just had a cloth on with the Bat symbol on his chest... now it looks like something getting very close to an armor...

I 'll be reading it, but I have one question though who will the Batmen be?  

Posted by yo_yo_fun

It looks great! 
I'm a big fan of the classic symbol!
