Poll: who will be the Earth 2 Batman? (27 votes)

Dick Grayson 44%
Tim Drake 0%
Jason Todd 4%
Damian Wayne 15%
Bruce Wayne jr 4%
Alfred (lol) 11%
other 22%

do you think that the death of Damian will effect the outcome of who the new Earth 2 Batman? every logical bone in my body says it will be Dick because he is established in Earth 2 previously. however DC has already stolen so many things from Dick and this could just be one more. it could be Damian because alot of people like him and its a way to hold onto the character with him being dead but who knows. I really want it to be Dick but if the rumors are true that he is gonna be in the re-launch of JLI. They might give Earth 2 to another Bat family character. I would love to see Dick in Nightwing, JLI and Earth 2 but who knows DC has been screwing Dick over alot in the new 52 but Dick has also gained popularity in Teen Titans (animated) YJ, Gods Among Us, etc

I'm hoping it's Grayson and given the revamping of the Golden Age characters, I think he's the most likely candidate. Haven't been following interviews/questions etc, so I'm not sure what Robinson's said.

I'm confused. Earth-2. It was just Batman and Helena Wayne right? There is no new Batman because Helena is Huntress. Right? What am I missing?

Is there even a Damian in E-2?

A new Batman will be introduced in the Earth 2 annual.

Huh. That's really odd. I can't think of anyone that makes sense. Although, do we have a new52 Azrael yet? I could see something like that.

Can't be Grayson, James Robinson has said that they can't use any Earth 1 characters in Earth 2.

Then it can't be Jason, Tim, Alfred or Damien, either.

Earth 1 is not the same as the New 52 Universe by the way.

I really dislike the character design for the Earth-2 Batman. I mean, I know he's largely enshrouded in shadows and everything in that art, but I don't like the colour choices, and I'm really not a fan of the way the shirt is open. A little too Fabio for me.

It's a Batman dawning Black and Red so part of me THINKS it could be Terry but they've been doing Batman Beyond so that makes me think otherwise. I wonder who it could be. I hope it's someone we know and not some random new guy, like they did with Dr. Fate.

@john_valentine:

the rule about existing in both earth 1 and 2 may or may not be true. it would not be the first time DC has misdirected their fans and Hawkgirl was supposed to be only on earth 2 since hawkman was on earth 1 but she has been recently introduced into earth 1. so it would not be impossible for some1 on earth 1 to be on earth 2 especially since Dick Grayson existed on both earths previously and was huge part of it

I won't be Dick, they don't want same characters in both worlds. I hope its Damian though.

no she wasnt. Hawkgirl and Hawkwoman are different characters.

That is true bit the rule is no longer in effect. I forget where but Robinson said they changed their mind. Red Tornado who is in both universes will be joined by a group of Red. Like Red Arrow. I rather they didn't have Batman or any other character that is on the other Earth on Earth 2

the Red Tornado is more modeled off of the female version with elements of the John Smith version. the identity of Earth-2 red arrow hasnt been confirmed but only teased as "Roy Mcqueen"

I wasn't using those as examples of characters that are in both universes. Just rambling off news that was in my head. Though reading my post I can see why you think so.

Most likely.

Just based on former continuity I still think that Dick Grayson has the best shot. Helena has yet to mention any siblings, and Talia was never really shown to exist in Earth-2, so i'd be extremely surprised (Though not totally unhappy) to see either Bruce Jr. or Damian.
