    These are my favorite panels of Duke using his shadow powers:

    I was rereading BaTS and there was a panel that gave me a theory about Duke's shadow powers that could explain those sparks (besides obviously being artistic license)



    The Null's powers work very similarly to Duke's, he takes in light and redistribute it for a particular effect. Unlike Duke (initially) Null's powers allow him to go a step further and create negative space, convert the sunlight into nullifying negative energy, and fill the negative space for a destuctive effect. pretty cool ability but I didn't make the connection how similar their powers were until this page



    the subtle lightning effect got me thinking: darkness and shadow is just the absence of light, so for Duke to be using it he's basically interacting with a negative property. that means he's effectively just absorbing and generating a negative form of mass or energy that's opposite to positive light energy. negative energy, just like Null, that results in these photoelectric discharges. his would also explain how he was able to help his team traverse the battlefield against Quietus. they're not necessarily teleporting nor are they necessarily invisible, he's creating "negative space" with his shadow for them to move through and then hop out of.

    So I was listening to Comic Pop's Back Issue episode on Tales of the Dark Multiverse: Dark Nights Metal, and at the 26 minute mark an interesting question was brought up. Does Final Knight!Duke's photokinesis work differently than Earth Prime!Duke's?

    Earth Prime!Duke's photokinesis/ghostvision involves him viewing things in time, but it might be that Final Knight!Duke's abilities can also pass through space as well, Final Knight!Duke might be seeing things as they are on Earth Prime.

    This concept has a lot of potential if that's the case in my opinion, and it could be another reason for Final Knight!Duke to try and breach between the Multiverse and the Dark Multiverse.
    I'm currently reading Batman, Detective Comics, DCeased: Dead Planet, Dark Knights: Death Metal, Daredevil, Thor, Nightwing, The Rise of Ultraman and Red Hood and The Outlaws. I'm also trade-waiting the Hickman-era of X-Men comics.

    I watched it but I checked out half way because they were trying too hard to make the story sound more confusing than it actually was. once they spent like a minute complaining about how DC doesn't distinguish between their hypens on earths and negative sign on negative earths, I was over it.

    as for his powers, Sal clearly doesn't know what Duke's powers are so I wouldn't put much stock in what he was saying. as far as I can tell, there isn't really any reason to think Duke's powers do anything different in Tales than how they usually work. it just seems to me like instead of a few minutes Duke is seeing years into the past. a cool idea would've been if they had it be that he was seeing the literally light of hope (Blue Lantern light) in people.

    The idea of Duke's abilities growing to encompass seeing years into the past is really interesting, especially with Duke's potential immortality.

    I can definitely see that being the natural progression of his abilities, especially if we follow the immortality route. say Duke's alive for another 100 years, who's to say he can't see decades or centuries in either direction in time? if Duke's powers are any indication of Elaine's, I can see why Immortal Man and the al Ghul's were interested in their family.

    I like the Signal-cycle ngl, but I kinda dig his whip in Future State. if that comes standard with a stealth mode and a couple dope unique features, throw in a catchy name, I could see it being pretty iconic for his character. I don't think any of the other batfam have an iconic vehicle besides Batman.

    Duke's spotlight in Future State: Outsiders is this week! I really enjoyed the first issue with Katana, and I loved Brandon Thomas' Aquaman, so I'm hella excited to see what he has in store for Duke.

    Hopefully he'll holds his own in the fight part, I want him to be both gentle and strong.

    you and me both, Duke is kinda overdue for a good solo W. Brandon Thomas said he wanted to make Duke equally as good at giving speeches and leading a rally as him kicking ass, so I'm gonna air on the side if optimism that we are in for a treat. I shouted out his Aquaman title on twitter and he replied hyping up Duke, so he seems legitimately excited about what he got. it's so refreshing seeing so many writers who are legitimately excited about working on Duke. Tony Patrick, Lanzing & Kelly, now Brandon Thomas, I hope DC recognizes their excitement and realize that there is a lot of potential in a real push for Duke. especially since the last time he had a real push was when he didn't have an actual identity (although visual he still doesn't ugh).
