    I really didn't think the Tim reveal was going to happen, even though I was hoping for it. It still hasn't really sunk in yet for me. Doing this for such an important legacy character is huge.

    My...

    "Who's Bernard?"

    "He's a... friend."

    Alright, I was doubtful, but this bit convinced me that the subtext is intentional. I can't think of any other reason for that ellipsis.

    I guess we'll...

    I fully admit this is my favorite Batman movie. Yes, it's awful, but I enjoy myself immensely every single time I watch it. I'm not sure why, since I was bored out of my mind by Batman and Robin, and...
  4. Poll: I voted somewhere in between, because I like him...

    I voted somewhere in between, because I like him best as a narrative foil to Batman and a counterpoint to his no-kill philosophy. But in that case he needs to be not officially part of the Batfamily....

    It's also mentioned in Scott Snyder's Zero Year story as the inspiration for the gang's theme.

    Of course, that was 2013, so it's very much a retroactive reference.

    Damian's right on the boundary. Writers will probably start giving him love interests soon.

    I'd say it doesn't necessarily have to be a source of angst for Jason but who am I kidding, everything...

    People are picking up on possible subtext in the most recent Urban Legends. Tim stating that he broke up with Steph and then meeting up with an old friend with an odd "he still looks... he looks..."...

    Mad Hatter wigs me out more than any of the other rogues. I'm such a rogue fan and I generally can find something to like about any rogue, but I can't deal with Tetch. I don't know if it's the...

    Would it be any better if Tim had a codename that SOUNDS something like Drake? I.e. Dragon, Draconis? Or are these still a bit too cringeworthy due to being a riff off his actual surname? (or due to...

    Harley's an iconic victim of the Joker too, and yet she's been turned into an empowering female figure, so I don't think that argument entirely holds water. Quite a lot of popular female characters...

    I'm really into the Gardener's design! Very corporate. A business-professional rogue to contrast Ivy's vaguely flower-child aesthetic.

    If she ever interacts with Harley in any way, I hope there's...

    Absolutely ecstatic that we apparently get more Veronica Vreeland out of this. I wonder how much of high society the Court of Owls has reached in BTAS-verse. Could the Vreelands be Owls?

    Poll: I think Bruce's #1 needs to be a rogue or...

    I think Bruce's #1 needs to be a rogue or ex-rogue. It really fits best. He can't separate himself from his purpose as Batman, and the rogues ARE his purpose.

    So for me that leaves Catwoman,...

    Someone besides me has probably already said this but I'm baffled at the idea that making Barbara act as Oracle means she's a weaker and less important character. If anything, it shows off how much...

    Came here to say this. Batman has probably the most popular rogues gallery in comics. There's sizeable portion of young fans who dislike Bruce Wayne for the very reasons OP gives (white billionaire...

    I'm in my mid-twenties; that must not be young enough to be in whatever demographic Tynion's aiming at here, because I think this looks like a mess. Every single new character Tynion's come up with...

    May Pengy have a good year. I quite liked his appearances in Tynion's Dark Designs arc in 2020 even if I didn't like the arc itself.

    I've been thinking about Gotham Penguin, who is SUCH a fan...

    I support him. Let's bring back more classic rogues who are just fun weirdos.

    Not sure how he could be integrated into modern Batman without being a complete joke, though. Could lean on his...

    Not that the Gotham TV show's canon counts for much of anything, but I remember seeing a mailing address in the show with the city/state being "Gotham, GM". Which I find hilarious.

    I think Barbara should stick with the Oracle moniker, but that doesn't mean she can't DO Batgirl stuff. Spoiler and Orphan are both acting as Batgirl right now but also have their individual monikers...

    I can't believe that ALL of Bruce Wayne's rich socialite buddies are shallow suckups. Surely he'd still automatically gravitate towards hanging out with people who aren't complete shitheads, just for...

    Unfortunately, I feel like the way this last issue ended sort of limits the possible ways that main continuity could piggyback off of it.
