May 2014's 48-page Secret Origins #2 will feature three new New 52 origin tales, including Aquaman by Jeff Parker,Starfire by Scott Lobdell, and Batman by Ray Fawkes. According to DC, artwork will be done by Paul Pelletier, Sean Parsons, Paulo Siqueira, and others (although DC didn't specify which artist was drawing what story).

I thought that was the point of Zero Year?

Which might I add, is still ongoing.

@maccyd: Zero Year was just Bruce first venture as Batman, this will be about the actual night his parents are murdered.

Some people might not be reading Zero Year. This Secret Origins thing might be a nice little summary.

Ah crud I just posted this, didn't see this one was made before. Damn forum bugs -.-

I believe his Secret Origins story is set before Zero Year, and I believe it's going to center around Crime Alley and young Bruce Wayne. Also, I'm loving that Bermejo cover.

@deathstroke19: I'm pretty sure they're not going to remake his origin, they're only going to show us a side of his origin that we've never seen before. Or at least re-tell his tragic tale so we can all remember the abrupt emotional experience that changed his life forever

It's been mentioned and spoken about, but we have yet to see the actual night Bruce's parent's were killed. Zero Year jumped right in with Bruce having just returned to Gotham and starting his war on crime as an unnamed vigilante, but never explored the night his parent's died. So if this story is going to focus on that night then I feel it would go hand-in-hand with what Snyder's currently doing in Zero Year.

@lordofthenorth: READ IT AND FIND OUT WHY DONTA? but go ahead and judge before youve read it

@lifeofvibe: sorry but everything Lobdell wrights is crap so i dought this will change my mind

@jonny_anonymous: @patrickborkland: Well that's "Pointless" and useless and ridiculous and a money making scam.

This Secret Origins series isn't really for veteran DC comic book goers, it's for people who are new and may not know the stories yet.

Spoiler

Now you dont need to buy it for the Batman segment.

@alertcircuit: Well to b fair nobody k owns the stories anymore, I mean it might be similar to the pre-flashpoint one but it's not going to b th same.

#31 Posted by Jayc1324 (9224 posts) - - Show Bio

@war_killer: I don't see why a story is needed about the night his parents since zero year already covered his vengeful attitude, hatred towards Gordon, anger... Not seeing what else this could tell us

Because there's always some jerk that wants remake, excuse me, that stupid word they like to use that basically means screw everything up, 're-imagine' the idea for a different time.
