    I guess I just hope he has a partin the big summer batman crossover event Tynion has been teasing on twitter. It's clear Duke has gotten less importance lately without scott snyder having a role in the bat books, so the most I can really hope for is Duke at least still getting some spotlight.

    I like him also as a social worker or doing something to improve the community. I feel Duke needs to be i n contact with the people. He feels like he is a character that could be at the heart of Gotham if you get me.

    I enjoy his interactions in his mini. At the community centre.

    Journalist is fine but I don't feel that's as integrated into the heart of Gotham.

    Predictions for Duke in 2020: Love relationship with Cassandra Cain or Gotham Girl, King saved GG in his final issue, maybe in future writters will remember Duke will have to be with Gotham Girl, probably a regular own series...

    I like the idea if him becoming a journalist. It compliments his already existing skills of being a detective and is a good parallel for his superheroing. Him joining the world of independent news could be a wealth of stories to tell.

    Him being a film director is interesting but i don't think its sustainable long term.

    we see Duke's new power in action this issue, they appear to act more as a scare tactic/stealth ability.




    we're able to see Duke talk and behave with a little more agency and I think we're getting close to him finally catching a W. despite some tension brewing, Outsiders appears to be taking a step in the right direction with Duke. my only nitpick is I would've liked if they let Duke take down the bad guy himself (or physically engage with him) but I guess they needed to have him and Cass working in tandem, so I guess I can let that slide as a small critique for an issue I really enjoyed. I just hope he doesn't get his ass beat again now that he and Cass have decided to face Lady Shiva head on.

    new fanart.

    EDIT: you know what, I think I like his suit from his nameless era more than his Signal armor. still had the weird bat on face thing but if they changed his helmet and gave him his own logo I would be all in on this suit. although, the reflective chest emblem in his Signal suit is hella dope to me.

I'm also hoping we see him pop up on Young Justice next season.
    Awesome picks.
    I'd also add Caden Park from Immortal Men.

    I would love that! apparently, I believe it was Jim Lee who said it, Duke was supposed to get involved with the Immortal Men down the road, had that title lasted. that was probably where they were planning on providing insight into his mother's history and Gnomon. I hope that if Duke ever gets more solo material that the Immortal Men and his heritage are explored more. you know what i'd love to see? Duke with the blood mask, even just for a sec.

    Another great issue of BatO and this time Duke got to shine, albeit with his newfound dark power. I like how he and Cass are rather camly moving away from Batman's shadow, hopefully it won't come back to bit them in the ass, because both of them deserve some win, but the Signal moreso than anyone else !

    The Blood Mask could provide him with great insight.
    I just reread The Immortal Men. It's really sad that they stopped after six issues, especially since it ended with Batman (and the Justice League) getting involved.

    There was a discussion about suggesting birthday dates for Duke in the old thread. How about somewhere between June 20 to June 22? It's the time of the summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere.

    Immortal Men was the title out of the NAoH i was the most excited about, i was heartbroken when it got canned for Justice League Dark. I hope they can pick up those threads somewhere down the line. Maybe he'll acquire the blood mask on his own and that could be how he discovers what went down between Elaine, Gnomon, and the original Immortal Man

    I like the idea of Duke being a summer baby, it's such an obvious choice given his powers and theming. Him being born on the solstice would be poetic

    I'd actually like for Duke to be born at Yule. The Summer Solstice is actually the time when the God (tied to the Light and Sun) start fading, while he is reborn at Yule. The victory of Light over Darkness would fit Duke better I think.

    hmmm I love the thematic reasoning but iunno, I really like the idea of him being a summer baby. however, if they ever leaned more into the immortal/esoteric angle of Duke, I could get behind them playing with that Solstice/Yule birth and rebirth parallel.

    Detective chimp for being a detective. Zatanna for a crash course on magic and also escapology.
    Black canary for hand to hand training.
