So I just want to say I am big on Batman's family because they bring out so many interesting facets of Batman himself. But there are just some characters that authors (I feel) have been neglecting. And I am not talking about Black Bat or Spoiler, since it is obvious its DC that hates those characters and not in the writers' control.
But what about these characters?
Red Robin - Tim Drake has been an integral part of the Bat Family for the majority of the past 20 years, and if I can say I honestly think he loves Batman more than any other character besides maybe Alfred. So why is DC treating him as a peripheral character? Sure they are making him lead the Teen Titans but even then, its not a very good comic being written...
Nightrunner - One of the coolest (and for some weird reason, controversial) characters introduced for Batman Inc. Aaaand he has yet to really show up. He still exists in DCnU because they have showed him in Batman Inc #0, but besides that he has not shown up at all...While we have the white characters getting the focus (Wingman, the Hood, etc.)
The Huntress - So they just made her back to her original Origin pre-crisis kinda. She's Bruce's daughter from another universe. There is soooo much potential with that! She's been around for what 5 years now, and she is being treated to an aweful story and as if some character that hasn't ever associated with the Bat Family...
Azrael - So like it or not he has totally been a key figure and member of the Bat Family since Knightfall. But DC seems to have deleted him out of existance since they whited him out in Batwoman #2. So does that mean he is getting the same treatment as spoiler and black bat?
Renee Montoya - She did appear in Batwoman #2 as the Question...but is she dead?
The Creeper and the Outsiders - They were Batman's OG team, and I am sure Batman wouldn't ever give them up just like that. So ya some of them show up in Birds of Prey and Batman Inc. But will they get their own book again?
Can you think of any reasons why these characters are being mistreated? And any hope for them? Oh and any other characters do you feel can get better treatment from DC?
