    I haven't read it, but isn't it literally called Batman and the Outsiders, or something like that? Plus it has Cass and Duke, who are part of the Bat-family, in it.

    Yes, maybe make this poll again in the DC forum and see what happens? I suspect placing it in a Batman forum may skew it in favor of Batman, for obvious reasons.

    Not sure, but I think it was. The moderators apparently moved it, assuming it was specifically about and intended to be about Batman.

    Oh, didn't realise it was moved, it doesn't say anything in the original post that it was moved. Okay then.

    lemonpeace didn't realize it had happened when it did. He did make a post remarking about it later in the thread though.

    To be c!ear, lemonpeace didn't request that it be moved. The moderators made their own assumptions and moved it on their own. lemonpeace had no say, and no knowledge that it was moved until he noticed after the fact.

    It started out as a Bat-team so people mostly see them as one. Best option is to uncouple them in a reboot- have Sarge Steel or someone else bring them together.

    Its Batman's team he founded the team when he wanted to do things that fall outside the Justice League's purview
    The franchise gets derailed constantly when they take that concept and try to put it somewhere else. It just doesn't work

    Altogether though it is supposed to be a group of young/old heroes who do not typically fit the JL mold not just batfamily characters since that implies they aren't good enough to be JL heroes

    I liked Nightwing and The Outsiders best. I donít think It was given much of a chance.

    I see them as a Batman team.

    Hard to tell Batman founded them, but he was never an integral part of the team and they were never really an important part of the Batfranchise.

    But the connection is to some degree necessary to sell the book, without it the team would have fallen into obscurity long ago.
