lol no comment?

I hope that Tomasi becomes the new writer of the outsiders, I had left the comic recently because of Frank Tieri but I would return to it if Tomasi takes over, he is easily the best new writer in a long time and is easily becoming one of my favorites

Andy Kubert as the artist would also be cool

who is the guy below Huntress?

because if there's no batman at the moment then there can't be one in the team, at least until it's decided which one of the "contestants" will win the mantle (Nightwing, Robin, Jason Todd, Hush)

I dont hink dick will be batman he should be but hes nightwing and IMO is out of batmans shadow...I see tim being batman maybe it was cause of the arc in the titans where he was inthe future but it just seems that tim is batman. Or it could damien

#15 Posted by Nighthunter (28582 posts) - - Show Bio

I know they says it's a never-seen-before character, but judging from this latest pick I'd say that looks an awful lot like Owlman from Earth-3. Does any one else think so?

He almost looks like the Nite Owl costume from the Watchmen movie. If that pic was a full on body shot and not just he's face we could see if he had a gut or not.

He could be the Thomas Wayne Jr. of New Earth...

#22 Posted by ahumancartoon (368 posts) - - Show Bio

I gotta say I like the idea of the Creeper FINALLY being on a team.

#23 Posted by Nighthunter (28582 posts) - - Show Bio

Ok so thanks to the cover only showing the faces and the fact that in comic all women seem to have the same face....

I did a few mistakes, I've just editted the first post to show the real members

According to Wikipedia...........

"In the absence of Batman, the Outsiders will be led by a new Owlman. A Trick or Treat tease from the Oct. 2008 of DC Nation ("THE OWL AND THE BUTLER ARE THE SAME PERSON.") Hints that it will be Alfred Pennyworth behind the mask."

Can't wait!!!!

I want either Geo-Force or Black Lightning to step up and be the leader. They need some more attention.

that would be cool if Alfred was Owlman, just don't let him lead!!!!

I was surprised when he said that he was leader

Then he started talking about Mi-6 so I was like "He should be a good leader"

Halo, Geo-Force, and Black Lightning are my favorites

Creeper seems interesting in a odd yet funny way

@obi_wan_kenobi_: If only he got enough to be put in the 52 he was in Flashpoint but is now gone.
