A repeating question that has plagued Earth 2 fans for weeks since March 2013, and Earth 2 Annual #1 will finally answer it. Click the jump to see more.
PLOT: The new Batman of Earth 2 debuts as The Atom begins a mission to lead a new team of heroes—but are any of them?
On May 29th, the new Batman of Earth 2 will be introduced since the original Earth 2 Batman died in a heap of glory to save the world. Who could this new guy be? Here’s what James Robinson (writer of Earth 2) says about who this Batman might be:
“He’s a huge part of ‘Earth 2,’ he’s going to be a huge part of the DC Universe, and everything he does from the Annual onward will have huge implications for the DC Universe. This isn’t some new person coming in to be Batman. This is definitely a part of Batman lore.”
Okay, so we know he’s going to be from the Batman universe so that narrows down possibilities. Could this new Batman be an Earth 2 Dick Grayson? Or maybe he’s Tim Drake with a bad attitude? Could it be Jason Todd because this Batman uses a gauntlet to fire things at people? We know how much Jason loves his guns and the sound it makes when it goes BOOM! Last, but not least could it be a new Damian Wayne of Earth 2 who has come to take the mantle of the lost and forgotten Batman? It’s a stretch to believe that Robinson would go as far to bring Damian into Earth 2. Robinson is better than that, right? Of course, but it would make for an interesting story and get Damian fans out of their so called depression.
The annual will be available May 29th. See the preview down below.
