Stephanie Brown returns in Batman:Eternal

#1 Posted by Dark_Guyver (2295 posts) - - Show Bio

"We know that they're characters that you guys have been really vocal about," Snyder replies. "Your guys' love of Stephanie Brown have been so inspiring to us. We're really proud to announce that she'll be coming back in [new weekly series 'Batman: Eternal'], in a big way. Dan DiDio is in the audience to yell at us for telling you that."

"No one was trying to shelve her," Snyder continues. "It was more about finding the right time to reintroduce her."

Snyder says that Tynion came up with the idea to reintroduce her, suggesting it'll be as Spoiler. Tynion says Stephanie Brown will be in issue #3.

GOOD. If only her time as Batgirl wouldn't get retconned (which it probably will).

What about Cassandra Cain?

They were asked about har and Stephanie, but they only gave answers regarding Stephanie.

This is a little vague, but they did say this as well

Tynion mentioned that he's incredibly thrilled to be a part of Batman: Eternal before talking about Red Hood and the Outlaws, which he recently took over. He promised we'll see much more of Gotham, "we have so much room to tell so many stories with so many characters including Stephanie Brown. I couldn't be more excited about it." Snyder added to that, "The Batman in Batman: Eternal is the Batman that we'll bring back into my Batman book after Zero Year, so you need to see him there."

@batmannflash: Yea, hopefully she's done right in the New 52. I'm looking forward to her comeback though!

@scouts1998: Surely Cass can't be too far behind from being brought back. I really don't have high hopes for Wally West though.

In the above video, Tynion states that "We have just announced that we will be bringing Stephanie Brown back into the DCU with Batman: Eternal." So, I'm pretty sure that means it's canon.

@dernman: Yes, it's canon! She's back!

@animehunter: I could listen to Snyder talk about his projects all day. He seems so passionate about what he does.

Sooo happy to hear this. Just hoping she'll be treated well.

Would like Cassandra back as well though.

Looks like I've found my reason to buy Batman: Eternal. Thank you very much Snyder and Tynion. I am ecstatic to see DC finally taking steps to reintroduce some of the great characters we've lost.

I hope that Tynion remains true to character and doesn't alter Steph too drastically. I haven't been a fan of his Red Hood and the Outlaws but I've heard good things about his Talon.

More information on Stephanie

Glad to see Stephanie Brown returning to comics. In the past I really liked her relationship with Tim and I hope to see that again. Also I would like to see her become something of a rival for Barbara/Batgirl. Not a villian or adversary but a heroic rival in the sense that she is on the same beat as Barbara and they keep butting heads. It could be interesting to see them as peers rather than as the previous mentor - student relationship they had in the past. Now if they could only bring back Cassandra I would feel a bit better about DC.

It's going to be terrible just like nearly everything else that the new 52 has changed it will change this and make it stupid.

Could this Stephanie as spoiler in the purple.

Bah, let me know when Cassandra Cain's back.

Stephanie will be back? Awesome!!! I wonder if she'll be 16 & pregnant again...

@the_tree: I hope it is, as DC needs new characters, not just swapping out newer blood like Spoiler or Misfit & giving them the Batgirl name to use for a few years. Sure, ok, being Batgirl is probly more well known, b they should be the one & only Spoiler or Misfit, not Batgirls 5 & 6 out of 6.

Thats part of the reason why Batman, Superman, & Wonder woman are so much more famous, while people just know of GL or Flash, but dont know who the meat in suit is. All its ever done is dilute the franchises.

Happy for her fans as long as Babs is still Batgirl, if not will probably be a bit sour but still exited for Babs new direction.
