@nathaniel_christopher: so pretty much scott is going to retcon everything we learned about roy and green arrow in the first annual.

Man I barely pay attention to those things in preparation for exactly this situation lol the New 52 was terribly planned in terms of origins.

It's about time.

Could have done that in a Secret Origin Issue, but whatever.

But they didn't, oh well. It's a book featuring all three characters anyways so each should get a little more focus than the others now and again.

There's such a strong difference between being fine with Dick being Batman, and being acknowledged as Batman's heir, and saying you want him to become Batman and think he should only be Batman. The fact that i'm fairly certain we all know Bruce will always be Batman, that Clark will always be Superman, and that Diana will always be Wonder Woman makes that logic even sillier. I don't even understand what the supposed issue is anymore. Everyone here loves Nightwing, and already considers Dick to be his own man, and already thinks he has his own legend, and that he's been written that way for years now. The majority of us just don't think Dick putting on the cowl means he's trying to be exactly like Bruce, or that him willing to do so is bad, or that it somehow undermines who he is as a person.

"I will say that It really disappoints me how many of you are just fine with Dick just dropping everything in his life and who he is just to be a Batman 2.0 when he could build his own legend as Nightwing or whatever and surpass Batman."

Thanks for once more proving that you have absolutely no idea what anyone's talking about, or what the characters in the comics are even saying. Have a good day.

@rustyroy I was thinking a combo between Damian's costume, and the more armored versions of Batman we've seen, like the Arkham video game, but you're right it does resemble the New 52 Nightwing Suit, especially with that neck piece.

@valdemocnij Well it is a new character lol just not a new secret identity. I think part of it's just because if someone's working with Batman, you expect him to be Robin; the whole legacy and all that. Though this is also taking place in the future anyways, and so it may never actually happened, or it could be retconned. The future in DC changes all the time it seems.

New Robin in the Future's End event:

Duke Thomas; and let me say, that is by far the ugliest Robin costume I have ever seen.

Batman-Vampire remains my favorite, and in general one of my favorite Batman stories of all time.

I picked up Gotham by Gaslight a while back and thought it was alright.

Yeah its one my favorite Batman stories of all time too, I thought GbG was pretty good, I've heard somewhere it was the first Elseworlds comic book.

Yeah, I find myself liking the Elseworlds more than the main titles sometimes, because a writer can really take an idea and run with it. I've wanted to check out Brotherhood of the Bat, Dark Knight Dynasty, and Batman of Arkham for a while now, but they're not the easiest to find.
