    exactly! that's that revolutionary Duke shining through, unapologetic, to the point, and commanding of authority. I like that Tony Pattick made a point of emphasizing that Duke isn't fighting for Batman's, and how Gotham ain't his, he's fight for HIS home, his territory and he shares that fight with the people. that's why I keep saying, Duke's suit needs to be redesigned to focus more on who Duke is but that's a discussion for another day . this was a breathe of fresh air as a Duke fan, I hope we can get a few more stories like this for Duke sooner rather than later. now I'm a little bitter, it would've been cool for him to get his own Future State title

    Probably not a quote, but definitively in the spirit of the We Are Robins.

    Ah. That's just as good, because that run needs to be given all the praise and reference for how great it was, for Duke and in general.

    Tony Patrick calling back to it with Duke was still peak, regardless!

    Hah! I'm not gonna pretend I'm not fine with that to some extents!

    But that is a sweet ending, though. It really does feel like Tony Patrick was course-correcting Duke/The Signal after his time under Bryan Edward Hill's pen.

    Tony Patrick, like Tynion, directly feels like he's a student of Snyder's school of storytelling, where he knows how to play ball (good or bad) and build off these characters. I like that you can kinda get a feel Snyder's influence in these writers coming out of his workshops, we definitely need more people like that who know how to effectively use continuity to enhance their story. That was Hill's issue with Duke (and i feel bad shitting on Hill so much because i like his other work) he never got his Duke to feel like he was in continuity with the character we'd followed up to that point.

    Pretty much in agreement with this, yeah.

    Duke is in White Knight Presents Harley Quinn #1 as an adult asked by Bruce to check up on Harley every week and bringing her food. Is this his first appearance in that world?

    No he was in the original white knight, in that universe I believe he’s a former police officer turned neighborhood social worker(I’m not sure it’s the right word, he represents the poorer neighborhoods of Gotham that the rich take advantage of).

    Nah. This older, Luke Cage-esque Duke Thomas has been a character in the White Knight-verse for awhile now. As lemonpeace mentioned, he's not a bad character, but not really Duke, if that makes any sense. (Note: different from Hill's take, though, where he's meant to be Duke but is functionally someone else and not very compelling.)
