    Red face Sly as a Fox - Lucas "Luke" Fox and the Fox family appreciation thread

    eh, the Foxs are looking to be playing a bigger role in the near future so why not show some appreciation for the family with best batsuit in the game


    DC Forum Appreciation Thread rules:

    1) No negative comments about the honoree of this thread. It's an appreciation thread, not a non-appreciation one.

    2) No negative discussion about any competitors of the honoree of this thread (i.e. John Stewart in the Hal Jordan thread). No ifs, ands, or buts. Find another non-appreciation thread to do that, just not here.

    3) No negative comments about other versions of the character. For example, if you like the DCU version of Cyborg, but hate the DCnU version (or visa versa), just appreciate the earlier version and keep your comments about the latter to yourself.

    First Appearance: Batwing #19 (April 2013).

    Skills and Abilities: Luke is an intellectually gifted young man, having graduated a year early with two degrees from MIT, one of the most prestigious institutions in the world. Similar to his father, Luke is a highly skilled engineer, having accomplished feats such as developing bulletproof smart fabric for his college thesis, defusing a nuke, upgrading and creating both his Batwing suit and Jean-Paul Valley's Azrael suit, and being tasked to help update the Belfrey for the Gotham Knights. Luke was even offered a job at Wayne Enterprises, which he refused in order to pursue his own ideals and run Foxtech.

    Luke was a world class boxer and mixed martial artist before being recruited by Batman, having participated in various point system based tournament fights since he was 16. Like Bruce, Luke has also traveled the globe learning from several different martial arts masters, most notably:

    - Kubi Nage a Judo/Jiujitsu throwing technique from Sensei Tsunemoto.
    - Armed spear Kung Fu, "Shaolin Red Eagle Spear," taught to him by Master Chu Chin Li.

    Love Luke and Lucius and Tam. Kinda "eh" about Tiffany, but she's still cool.

    Awesome choices of pics!

    I found it funny that in the comics he started out as a younger lighter Tony Stark while in the animated movies he was more like Rhodey.

    I didn't read Tynions run on Tec so I can't judge that. I'm neutral to him taking over for Alfred in Tynion's run or 5G.

    For the animated movies, I thought about adapting Superheavy from the Snyder/Cappulo run with him instead of Gordon. It's an odd choice but having Luke be a public Batman is an interesting idea. Plus he's already an established hero so it's an easier sell than explaining why we are using Gordon.

    Just saying, it could be fun. His actual solo could also be adapt but you'd have to write it with a different Luke in mind. I wouldn't mind if Movie Luke and David had a team up. Maybe he was stationed in Zambibe?

    I wonder if Luke will ever become Batwing on the TV show.

    I do like the way Tomasi has been writing Lucius - how was he this week?

    He was very wise and human. I'll post a link it's actually Taylor who's writing him this time

    I wasn't sure if he was the right pick to replace Alfred but this preview sold me. He handled Bruce very efficiently and the ease with which |Bruce decides to heed his advice tells us just how much trust and respect Bruce has for him

    John Ridley IV has allegedly been tapped as the writer for Luke Fox as Batman [assuming the 5G comes true] come Fall 2020. thoughts?

    Ridley an interesting choice. I read his comic "The American Way" and it was great.

    Is he actually a butler or he's just there reporting? That bowtie really threw me off, he usually wears a tie. Like I'm seeing Alfred but with Lucius' head.

    he's not serving tea and crumpets or anything, he just pops in, tells him about a missing kid from one of the Wayne Orphanages and suggest that he investigates as Bruce, checks in on the status of the kids later, and then we see him at the end with Bruce and Damian. In truth, if you switched the heads, he could've been Alfred and it would've changed nothing but it wasn't like he was waiting on him hand and foot.
