So Harper Row will not be Robin? I guess Batman would not be eager to allow anyone else to take up the mantle after this. I'll look forward to seeing more of the Bat-Family teaming up with him though, especially Red Robin and Red Hood being outside of their fairly dreadful regular books.

Also, as far as Superman goes, cue Django jokes in 3...2...1...

I don't think it's known one way or another the part Harper will play in Bruce's life, but she will be some sort of sidekick. I've also seen suggestions she could be Spoiler II That would be a reason why we've not seen Steph around for a while.

I'm guessing it'll be a while before Batman recruits a new Robin, it's not like a position just opened up and he puts out a want ad or starts taking resumes. After Jason Todd died didn't it take a good deal of time before he took on another Robin?

So the new title may be "Batman and..." for now but eventually Batman will take on another Robin (Harper, please!) and the title will go back to "Batman and Robin."

So there's going to be "Superman Unchained" and then there's also going to be the "Superman/Batman" title?

"Superman: Unchained" by Snyder and Lee yes, and Batman/Superman by Greg Pak and Jai Lee.

No real interest in Superman unchanged. Superman/Batman on the other hand is a must for me.

Snyder's bringing it with "Batman" so I'm intrigued to see what he can do with Supes. I've been anticipating this book with Morrison leaving Action Comics.

I've seen the suggestion that she could fill the Oracle role. Which, to be frank, would suit her better given the things that she's done thus far.

Yep. I've seen that as well and wouldn't mind that. She's an intriguing new creation. I look forward to seeing what Snyder does with her. It would seem that Batman #18 will show "Damian's death through Harper's eyes" or how she reacts to it. The way she's been introduced and slowly integrated into Bruce's life reminds me very much of the way Tim was after Jason's death.

It was more like Tim convincing him that he needed Robin in his life.

There was a year or two after "Death in the Family" I believe that they waited before introducing Tim Drake. Might be off a year or so. Probably only a few months or a year in comic book time.

Jason died in Batman #428.(December 1988) Tim first appears in Batman #436 (August 1989) and becomes Robin in Batman #442 (December 1989) So about a year in real time, but very little in comic book time.

And probably only a matter of hours in nu52 time.

Even with the silly title I'm looking forward to Superman Unchained. Hopefully Jim Lee will stay out of Snyder's way and just draw pretty pictures.

I'll stick with Batman and... for the moment. I've always liked the idea of a Batman team-up book like the old Brave and the Bold.

Scott Snyder and Jim Lee's upcoming Superman project has a title now..."Superman: Unchained". Also revealed are the new titles for "Batman and Robin".

http://www.newsarama.com/comics/snyd...unchained.html
I guess my question would be: was Superman ever CHAINED? Hasn't he ALWAYS been UNchained? It at least makes sense for Django.
