Batman: Battle for the cowl

#1 Posted by Nighthunter (28561 posts) - - Show Bio

"'Batman R.I.P.' ends with quite a big shock," said Morrison, saying the ending will be followed by a two-issue story that is effectively the last Batman story. A slide was shown of Batman: Battle for the Cowl with Nightwing, Jason Todd, Robin, Hush and Catwoman appearing on the image.

This is Babs for a minute (she's next to me):

This is ultimately exactly what I guessed would happen. And if you've read then you already know who the winner is.

How can Catwoman get the Mantle? She can't be BatMAN.

I hope Hush gets the Cowl....

I'm thinking it will be Jason, that guy can't keep an identity if his life depended on it.

i'm listening to podcast about this as i type they're talking to morrison they'll have a 2 part story right after r.i.p. then it goes into final crisis and he said after that everything will be different unfortunately he didn't say anything else

it better not be any of them. =| Boo to RIP.

But I bet it's probably Catwoman or Hush.

I think that it is obvious that it will end beeing a contest between Dick, Jason and Tim.

Dick for the win. No one should replace Bruce, but if they do only he deserves it

Did anyone else read Detective comics 846??

When I saw Hush'es mom all bandaged up i was like WHOA

#16 Posted by danhimself (21904 posts) - - Show Bio

i think tim and damien are too young to take up the cowl right now....todd's to violent it would be like knightfall all over again...catwoman? not going to happen she may be like a mediator or something like a judge of who gets it....the only obvious choice is dick

Re-reading Batman #666 something took my atention

Notice how thre is the suit of Bruce alone while there is another one that is with the "robin suit" that Damian uses?

Theory: Bruce dies/retires and either Dick, Jason or Thomas take the mantle just to die in the end, meaning that Damian still becomes Batman but not until another one dies

imao Babs

anyway another thing came to mind, ongoing series.

Both Nightwing and Robin have their own ongoing series that have both sales and quality at the moment meaning that there's not a good reason to cancel them, however if any of these two become Batman those series would have to be cancelled (unless someone else also takes the mantle of Nightwing or Robin)

Then again Morrison announced that there is a Jason Todd ongoing comming soon (how they'll make that work I don't know)

link

If the ongoings get in the way of candidates to become Batman then we can take out the 3 principal candidates and also take Catwoman for obvious reasons.

Will Hush become the new Batman?

Thats a true point but right now DC is pretty much high everytime they make a decicion so they might actully cancel etheir one of their series...

Just remembered another thing, from Batman #666:

Damian Wayne said:

I knew I'd never be as good as my dad or Dick Grayson. But I promised I wouldn't leave Gotham without a Batman.
Hidden message people?

Off-Topic I know but I figured this would be a good place to ask it......

Reading Batman 677 er 676 or 78......

I don't remember.....

Regardless, Robin asked Alfred about Damien and Alfred said "Master Tim,  Master Bruce said he would reveal the results of the DNA test when he thought you were ready"

To which Robin responded "Oh great! The son of Satan is my brother!?!"

I don't know much about Damien but is this true?

Has anybody seen the picture in he begining of R.I.P 1 where the robin looks really young Damien young and the Batman doesn't have his face shown. I don't th ink Jason wants to be  bats, Dick doesn't want it. Hush idk why that would be, i mean he hates Bruce. Maybe to ruin his  image. But i mean the way they draw Tim he looks grown and his mannerisms he's got the role down pat

Nah.... he's got his own book that does alright plus it has solicits after RIP, as does the Nightwing book.

Maybe someone has mentioned this but.. why was Catwoman's book cancelled? Is she going to take up the mantle?

umm no

he was the Batman of a parallel Earth, but Superman Prime killed him

Jason Todd as Batman=Stupid

Hm, As much as I hate the idea of anyone being Batman other than Bruce...

I want to see Hush get it. Of course Dick deserves it more, I just feel it'd make an interesting comic to see Hush as Batman. Perhaps a Punisher of sorts

#41 Posted by Midnightist (10858 posts) - - Show Bio

Tim will be the one to get the cowl because Nightwing was Batman once and he'll probably say some crap like he wants to move on from Batman's shadow and can't go backwards, no way they'll let Todd have it he's way to far from what Batman is in terms of how to handle evil and would just kill everbody if he was Batman and Catwoman is well a woman not a man so she can't be BatMan and they already have one Batwoman

Well, If they've already done a Punisher type Batman then Dick I guess

Jean Paul was bad a$$, he could've taken the whole Batman Family and still kept going, but he shouldn't be Batman again

Once is enough for anyone other than Bruce to be Batman anymore times and someone else just isn't as interesting and plus if he did become Batman again he'd probably go off again an Nightwing or somebody would have to take him down
