Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

Bruce needs a human anchor though. Tim previously served this role in the comics, but DC obviously has other (questionable IMO) plans for him right now as Red Robin and establishing himself as his own hero. Harper I believe was specifically created by Snyder to serve this purpose, remember we were introduced to her all the way back in the first issue, and as we've seen with Snyder--like Morrison, usually there is a specific purpose for his characters in the overall plot. We know Stephanie is not coming back any time soon...maybe it's due to Harper's presence or not...that's an entirely different subject that we've already covered many times in the thread, but I believe that Harper will eventually become Bruce's next sidekick, at the very least provide that human anchor...at another time in Bruce's life where he needs one now, not only because of Damian's death but because of what the rest of his family and allies were just put through by Joker.
