Morrison personally selected Tomasi to replace him.

So, has Batman ever stabbed anyone with his cowl horns before? Because that was actually kinda awesome.

Yes, seriously. He just did it in Batman and Robin #7.

Yep...and while Bruce has used his cowl for offensive situations before...I don't recall a situation where he impaled someone quite like that...usually he avoids that.

Oh, I thought he was just head butting him! I didn't get he was impaling him, lol. That is cool.

Typically, no, since his cowl "horns" are depicted as being neither particularly sharp nor hard.

Even the suit itself there which you'd think would be made of a stronger material than stuff Captain Kirk's tunic is made out of.

The word/grunt balloons in that cap are hilarious, BTW.

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

All of Bruce's suits are supposed to be weaved with kevlar. Not sure if that stuff is hard enough to impale someone...but I guess in the 52 'Verse it does. I thought it was rather over the top myself and out of character for Bruce, but given the situation and the fact that his son was involved, it makes sense.

No details...and I haven't seen a link to the actual coverage yet, but apparently Synder's next arc after the Court of Owls is going to be a "game changer". It really does seem like DC has made Scott the heir apparent to Morrison if they have given him permission to do a status quo type story arc.

Well would his entire suit be made of kevlar? What would be the point of making the ornamental bat-ears out of kevlar? Maybe he saw the "value" in using the ears in a offensive way and made them out of sterner stuff. Heck, we see in the Nolan movies that the ears are out of a hard material as they have an actual function in the suit.

Not to be cranky, but calling anyone the "heir apparent to Morrison" implies a credit to Morrison's work on Batman that he just doesn't deserve.

I disagree but yeah get the dislike of Morrison, and my comment was really referring to the "showrunner" aspect. Morrison has been really the showrunner or lead writer of the Batman books since he started his run. Snyder seems to be the one DC has appointed to take over and "Batman" will be the flagship title.

Snyder seems to DC's Brubaker, but with a more horror-centric and literary background.

I thought Brubaker only worked at DC. He ran Batman in the early 2000s, didn't he? Has he done anything at Marvel?

Brubaker is currently writing "Captain America". He also had a long run on Uncanny X-Men before that. I believe he is an Architect? House of UIster I'm sure will correct me if I'm wrong about the latter. He did indeed work on "Batman" for three years I believe, and was the writer on Darwyn Cooke's revamp of "Catwoman" I agree with the Brubaker comparison. I was even thinking that Snyder has a little Greg Ruka in him. I doubt it would ever happen, but I'd love to see an "American Vampire" "Batman" crossover over mini-series.
