Understandable, but as I said, how do you insure top-grade talent? How do you find people who are worthy of the title and can be trusted not to abuse it?

Tim Drake/Robin: I like you, but you're just not right for this competition.
Dick Grayson/Batman: I gotta tell you for me, man, that was not even half good, dude. You can't fight. What're you doin' here, Alan? Go back to the minors and try again.
Bruce Wayne/Batman: Dick, why the hell are you talking like that. Maybe we should have you go through a try out again!
Dick Grayson/Batman: Maybe you should too. That clone was more Batman than you these days Mister 'Who Wants to be the Goddamn Batman'? Next thing you know they'll be saying we're gay for each other again and you'll hire Ryan Seacrest to host.

I think it would be great if Jose Delgado was made the Batman of Metropolis. I always liked him as Gangbuster.

Love the oval. Hate the raised border around it -- and the idea of "franchising" the character.
An army of loners???

Not an army. An organization of autonomous like minded individuals.

My favorite parts of that thread are the first two comments:

Daniel said:

If they're bringing him back with that stupid yellow oval I have no problem dropping all the Batman books.
Brian said:

Way to live the stereotype, Daniel.

Re: Batman Inc. The Yellow Oval Is Retunring!

^ Yeah I laughed at that quote too. I don't look at it as Bruce wanting to build an army of Batmen but to ensure that his legacy will continue even beyond himself and his adopted family. The events of RIP, Final Crisis, and Return of Bruce Wayne no doubt have shaken him to his core and probably made him realize that it is time for a change. All of this will be undone after Grant leaves in two years anyways.

Re: Batman Inc. The Yellow Oval Is Retunring!

Here is the first look at Bruce's new costume from the covers of Batman Inc #1 in the November Solicits. I really like it.

Re: Batman Inc. The Yellow Oval Is Retunring!

I was waiting to see how the costume would look in blue. I like the new costume, but I'm glad Dick is still wearing the old one. At least we'll be able to tell which comics star which Batman.

At the same time, I hope Dick Grayson goes back to being Nightwing sooner instead of later. He worked hard to become his own man and deserves his own identity.

Re: Batman Inc. The Yellow Oval Is Retunring!

Well I think DC is planning to play around with this notion of multiple Batmen for at least until the end of Morrison's run which he said could end in two years but he if is still feeling it he could go for more since he's having a blast with the character. The costume reminds me a little of Gary Frank's Batman Earth One costume with obvious differences but I really like it. Really happy with both Dick and Bruce's costumes Can't wait for post Return of Bruce Wayne.

Re: Batman Inc. The Yellow Oval Is Retunring!

Isn't that one of the costumes used by Rha's Al Ghuls' thugs when he sent them after Bruce at one point? There were much better variations than that. What's with the piping?
