No, no, no, you guys got it all wrong. Batman has only been publicly operating for 5 years, but he existed before then (according to the JL origin reboot). The fact that he was an urban legend prior to his coming-out allows for any time-lines since it becomes unclear when he actually started working.

He's been operating for 7 years after the Justice League was formed, and maybe 1 or 2 years before that.

Batman: Zero Year takes place a year before Justice League: Origin, so Batman had only been active a year before the Justice League formed in the New 52. Though Bruce Wayne was active in Gotham months before he became Batman, he was simply an unnamed vigilante during that time. So it could be argued that he built up his "urban legend" status during this time, and later after he became Batman people began to become more aware of him, mainly because he was suppose to be a symbol to the people of Gotham, which thus required them to know of his existence.

This would also explain Green Lantern's reaction of Batman in the first issue of Justice League, as while Batman may have been known to the people of Gotham, he may have still been an "urban legend" to people outside of Gotham, such as Hal.

"Everybody wants to rule the world." - Reminds me of the song from the Assassin's Creed: Unity trailer. xD

Personally I like the idea of a novel set within the Marvel Universe. We're so use to these characters being written in a comic book format, so seeing them explored through different mediums, other than movies and TV shows, is something I'd like to see more of in the future.

The fact that it is its own story and not simply an adaptation of a comic book story, in my mind, makes this something less likely to be looked over.

@war_killer: It's not about the look. His bionic arm is really recognizable, like wings are for Falcon and shield for Cap. They don't necessarily have to hide it even on Earth, I'd say. Since he's this super-secret-spy and all, I doubt anyone would be able to see him, recognize him, and live at the same time. We all know what Buck's capable of. And, come on, it's comics reality. It's not possible that someone can protect their identity wearing just a domino mask, for example, and yet they do so in comics. So I don't quite see how Bucky would have to hide his bionic arm. He's not the only one out there who has ever had bionic arm.

Good points. I also like your point about the domino mask. In the past I've had my issues with the mask, but as you pointed out, it's a comic book and sometimes you just have to accept it as such. Really, and this goes for other characters like Nightwing and the Robins, the domino mask is a lot like Clark Kent's glasses, as realistically they wouldn't hide a person's identity at all, but because it's a comic book you kinda have to accept it, even if it's not "realistic."

Personally I wouldn't mind seeing them try to adapt the domino mask on the big screen. Some might say it looks cheesy or stupid, but having seen Black Canary wear one on Arrow, I believe it could actually work on the big screen as well.

@jonny_anonymous: @kleo_94: His bionic arm is also covered up it seems.

True... Not sure if I like it that way, though.

If he was back on Earth it would make a little more sense, giving that he's supposed to be "dead" to the public and the arm is kind of a giveaway. But out in space...I don't really see the need to hide it. Then again, I'm not totally against Bucky having a new look either.

I like the art, not sure about the design of the aliens though...I just hope this series isn't as whacky as Kot's Secret Avengers.

Also, did anyone else notice that Bucky has TWO stars on his shoulders, instead of just the one star on his bionic arm?

Realistically it makes a lot of sense. The voice itself is suppose to do two major things, 1.) better help hide Bruce's identity as Batman and 2.) come off more demonic, animal-like and terrifying. Both of which I think the voice did very well actually.

Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch look awesome, can't wait to see them join Earth's Mightiest Heroes.
