I wonder if maybe the way to go would be to bring in some minor DC heroes who haven't been used much in recent years and give them a Bat-makeover. That way you'd be dealing with people who have already proven themselves as heroes.
I think it would be good to get a combination of new and old talent. The old talent would think they know everything (and be in for a rude awakening), and the new talent would probably spend a lot of time hero-worshiping.

My guess is that there would be at least one acrobat (Dick's influence), one young assassin-in-training (Damien's influence), several minor and new non-superhero characters (probably the sons and daughters of various super-heroes--ones who ended up not being born with superpowers), and a bunch of non-powered up-and-coming superheroes.

I just have a feeling they're going to have someone hunt down each Batman and women till the best one survives.

The reveal is no one would be dead but just held up somewhere

A prison for the batmen and women.
I could see the Joker doing something like this. "Thinning the herd" until only the "real" Batman is left.

Re: Batman Inc. The Yellow Oval Is Retunring!

Yeah I'm a huge fan of the oval as well and loved the Burton costume...so much so that a family friend made me one from scratch for Halloween complete detail even with Michael Keaton's muscles!

Trying to guess what Morrison is going to do is like discussing quantum physics...I don't think he's going to do anything that's been suggested so far. This is a new concept and I'm sure it will tie in with some kind of soul searching that Bruce has done over his time coming home. So far in the Return of Bruce Wayne mini-series he has barely said anything. I'm guessing when he arrives to present time his mind will clear and the Road Home will be something of a soul searching and he'll come up with the idea that will be explored in Batman, Inc.

Well, obviously, and nobody's saying otherwise. I'm sure we all know that Carmine Infantino introduced it for the "New Look" Batman in the mid-'60s. The point, which I did make very clearly, is that this particular version has a raised rim around it that matches the Burton movies' specific version, and is not just the standard Infantino oval.

Re: Batman Inc. The Yellow Oval Is Retunring!

Another thing i'll add is that I re-read the quote from the article and Morrison says that we'll see Bruce going around the world and training people, that he wants to bring more people in. So it would seem that Bruce doesn't think that he has enough allies.

I'm wasn't arguing with you. I was just stating how I prefer the yellow oval over the black bat design on the costume.

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? I mean, there have been a couple of prior cases where "stand-in" Batmen such as Jean-Paul Valley didn't work out too well.
And then you have the chance of another Jason Todd mental stability issue.

I'm sure Dick's Batman would make a one liner like

"As if we didn't have enough psycho's wearing bat masks..."

One Batman goes rouge and decides to whip out all the others.

I always liked the idea that the yellow oval was a target to draw fire to the part of the Batsuit with the most protection.

Re: Batman Inc. The Yellow Oval Is Retunring!

I like the bat oval symbol but I'm not a big fan of the yellow. Not exactly the ruination of Batman though.

Re: Batman Inc. The Yellow Oval Is Retunring!

Ewwww... don't even joke about that! LOL

I like the new suit honestly and the whole Batmen idea is kinda interesting. Would also let there be a "Batman" all over the DCU even though Bruce could be at home in Gotham rebuilding his life and Dick could be taking to the streets with Damien. I always did think that there needs to be a "Street Level" Batman and a "World Level" Batman. I mean look at the old JLU show - Batman went from fighting street thugs and mobsters to all of a sudden defending Earth against alien invasions and other more worldly super powered threats. So uhm... while he was up on the Watchtower playing with Superman and Wonder Woman... who was minding the store in Gotham? Surely he didn't say "Hey Clark, Di.. I need to go and rough up some thugs in Gotham... just so they don't forget I'm still around. I'll be back. Want me to bring back donuts?"

Presumably Nightwing, Batgirl, and Robin. There was a pretty substantial Bat-family operating in Gotham by that point in the DCAU.

I'd like to see this, a high level coordinator on an international front. Plus this provides Bruce with tons of more contacts and information around the globe than he may have now. Bruce may be super smart and all, but I can imagine that say, a native of Tokyo may know the city and its underworld better than Bruce does, or understand nuances of the culture Bruce may only have a high level of familiarity with. Of course,mileage will vary on this based on the writers of any of these "future Batmen".

I'm thinking though that Bruce wants to expand the influence of Batman across the world and not just keep it centralized to Gotham City.

Is anybody else picturing Bruce, Dick, and Tim in costume sitting behind a desk in a comunity center evaluating potential Batmen.

Bruce is Simon. Dick is Randy. So poor Tim gets to be Paula?!!!
