I'm thinkin' Terry.

#3 Posted by junkmasterzero (257 posts) - - Show Bio

In "current continuity" Terry comes after Damian, so I would say he would at least have to come first.

I prefer Tim Drake.
#5 Posted by Murasame (49 posts) - - Show Bio

Tim Drake, but I don't think it will last long and they'll just reboot Batman Wayne again. It's not really Batman if it's not Bruce Wayne.

Yeah, Bruce Wayne is irreplaceable.

@virgin4life: agree. And hopefully no one replaces Bruce.

My vote would be Damian.  Dick and Tim would make excellent Batmen but there is that scary serious element to Batman that they are missing.  Damian has it.

If they're trying to keep up the illusion that it is the same person I think it'll have to go through Dick, Tim, then Damian then whoever their sidekicks end up being. If it's just a mantle that gets passed probably the same but maybe Cassandra down the line maybe.

Bruce is gonna end up making a Lazarus Pit to sustain himself so he can keep running his Batman Inc, and eventually he'll just become a less evil version of Ras Al Ghul.

His son Brandon Lee of course! Oh different Bruce... Nyehehehe!

I KNOW, RIGHT? I'm actually planning too. Herp herp. 
 
 
Nah but seriously, thanks. I dunno about canon, but it'd make a good elseworld's story at best, maybe? I can see Damien having no problem leading an army of ninjas.

@junkmasterzero: he's SAID that, but he actually became "Batman" twice 
 
 
once in the battle for the cowl 

    

 

and once in a teen titans story "The Future is now"     
 

(that's him next to superman (Superboy)
#26 Posted by junkmasterzero (257 posts) - - Show Bio
@The Stegman: Yeah I know, and if you read Red Robin, I think he's becoming more like Batman everyday, what with the hit list and the ünternet (Bats is starting a new internet with Babs in charge.)  And in the Teen Titans arc he also killed a bunch of people right?  I'm not sure if that one really counts.

Not hate,i'm realistic.You think jason will ever be batman logically?Forget the heroes,even villians like bane and deadshot will go for todds head.
They respect him too much and would'nt stand someone screwing his name and legacy. 
And then bane will be known as the man who broke the "hood" LMAO.

No, he'll end up refining and injecting himself with Venom, becoming a less evil version of Bane.

@The Stegman
Tim assumed the cape and cowl out of frustration towards Batman's, his "father", death and, to some extent, Dick for stepping up. It's perfectly understandable that Tim put on the Batsuit (the same model worn by Bruce when Tim was first introduced) and defend the reputation of the Batman.

Anyone else with the right characteristics can be Batman, but we know that won't happen since AMERICAN comic book characters don't age.

It should be Terry as Dick is nothing like Bruce. He doesn't really share the same dark emotions as Bruce, which are really needed when being Batman.

This says it.....  Marvel and DC don't want characters to mature and have real lives...  No, except Reed and Susan, can have children unless those children are taken off to another dimension or timeline to age instantly.   Characters (in general, not all) are allowed to be as  young as 13, but then they rapidly become old enough to vote, drink, and have sex... Once they reach that age, however, they stay that age forever.  Comics never lose characters to old age, they just keep acquiring characters that are suddenly old enough to vote, dink, and have sex...
 
Then, when you have too many super heroes old enough to vote, drink, and have sex, you have some pitiful event like 'One More Day', or 'M Day', or 'Flash Point' to cull things down a little....  However, they STILL end up with too many heroes... And since characters like Batman don't age, they don't retire.  So, instead of younger heroes assuming the role, you end up with things like BatMEN instead of Batman.  In fifteen years or so, we'll see Batmen Inc, Batmen Ltd, Batmen subsidiaries, Extreme Batmen, Uncanny Batmen, Batmen Force, Mighty Batmen, and Batmen.....
 
Many of the Batmen will have children that they didn't actually raise, as the children were kidnapped and sent into the future where their aging was accelerated, they were experimented on, and augmented.  Their children will coincidentally come back to the same point in time because, THAT'S the 'real time.'    and it's so much better than any OTHER time...
 
Of course, when THAT gets too much to handle, we'll see The Batmen Wars, where the Batmen that the writers don't want, will be killed off... Of course, since it's comics, and in comics only Uncle Ben stays dead, most of the dead Batmen will come back; augmented...
