Off My Mind: What Exactly Is Batman, Inc About?
by Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero on
Why does Batman feel the need to start a franchise now?
I absolutely trust Grant Morrison's writing but I have to wonder what is Bruce thinking? He's usually a loner, besides hanging with Robin (will Damian be included in this "team" since he's going to be hanging with the Teen Titans?). Batman's Outsiders team never really seemed to work out for him and we know what happened before with the Justice League.
Why does Batman want to make a franchise out of himself now?

Perhaps his recent adventures through time have changed him a bit. Maybe now he's seeing things in a different way. I hope and would imagine he's still the same motivated and determined Batman. He could be looking at a bigger picture now. Over the summer I wrote about whether or not Batman could ever end crime in Gotham City. He could be looking at how to attack crime all over the world. We've seen the Batmen of All Nations before but they weren't really guided by Batman. Batman, Inc could be his way to have more of a say in their training and methods.
Does the world need more than one Batman? We know Gotham will potentially have both Bruce and Dick (unless Bruce will be running all over the world meeting with all these other Batmen). It's going to be weird having Bruce back and jumping right into forming this team. Of course we'll have other Bat-titles where he won't necessarily be working with these other bat-dudes but don't you think "Batman, Inc" is a little egotistical? I suppose he has the right to name the team after him since he is so cool.
