I figured that I will probably get hired by DC Comics eventually since my career choice is comic book writing and I'm confident enough of my skills to say that. Who knows if it will anything major but one thing I know I definitely want to write is a Batman story that doesn't exist in the actual universe. It's an Elseworlds story, if they ever return to allowing those stories to happen.
Basically, it's an alternate version of Justice League of America: The Nail (What if Superman never came to Earth?) but instead about Batman. The concept is that Bruce Wayne never became Batman. There have been plenty of stories where Bruce's parents live and he just grows up to be a lame rich guy like the male version of Paris Hilton. In Flashpoint, instead just Bruce died and Thomas Wayne became a vicious Batman without the no kill rule and Martha Wayne became the Joker. Instead, in this story, Joe Chill kills Bruce and his parents together. Nobody to get angry, nobody to get revenge. Alfred just decides to mourn their deaths and go back to England.
The idea is to show how the Justice League forms without their powerless human member to keep them grounded and how Gotham City operates without Batman fighting evil. I want to show how some of the Batman villains don't exist because Batman never accidentally created them. Also the lives of the Robins and Batgirls without Batman to guide them. I do want to create a random new hero that is just some new guy who hates crime.
Here is where I decided to let you guys in on the development of the comic. I pretty much want to write the story itself by myself but I want to see what you guys have in mind for suggestions on developments of certain characters like Dick Grayson, Barbara Gordon, Jason Todd, Tim Drake, and others.
What do you guys think? Do you have any ideas?
Current characters with set developments: Thomas Wayne, Martha Wayne, Bruce Wayne, Alfred Pennyworth, Joe Chill, Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, Tim Drake, Jim Gordon, Harvey Dent, Cassandra Cain, Ra's al Ghul, Thomas Elliot, Selina Kyle, Superman, Supergirl, Superboy, Lex Luthor, Wonder Woman, Donna Troy, Cassie Sandsmark, Barry Allen, Wally West, Bart Allen, Hal Jordan, Kyle Rayner, Aquaman, Tempest, Martian Manhunter, Miss Martian, Oliver Queen, Roy Harper, Mia Dearden, Cyborg, Starfire, Beast Boy, Raven, Ted Kord, and Plastic Man.
