The New Batman Of DC Comics – Revealed

FCBD_DIVERGENCE_CV_580_54d445ebdb0875.62352178We’re half a month from Free Comic Book Day. The comics are already in the stores waiting. And people are getting jittery about spoilers.

So that’s where Bleeding Cool comes in. Take the DC issue Divergence.

We’ve already mentioned a month ago what you might be expecting to read in the Superman chapter, and the way that will change the character’s status quo.

But it’s the Batman chapter that seems to be causing the most fuss. And this is where the spoiler warnings start to get very large indeed.

Bleeding Cool was forwarded pages a couple of weeks ago, but they seem to be spreading like wildfire right now, so what the hell.

We see a man smoking his final cigarette. He has an army-style shaved head. He walks through the offices of power to smirks of derision. Until he is asked, “Are you ready to be Batman…”

“…Commissioner Gordon?”

The robo-Batman suit. The shaved head. The shaved moustache. And Gordon in this.

“I’d like to go on record as saying this is the dumbest idea in the history of Gotham City.”

Getting the hating in first there. Because this is the great idea in the history of Gotham City.

He’s an ex-marine after all. But he’s just so boringly goody goody over in the Gotham TV show. In the comics? He’s Batman. The new Batman. Robo-Batman. Bat-CHAPPIE. Whatever you want. In one stroke, the comic has just knocked the TV show to the ground.

It’s utterly insane, which is what the best Batman comics are. This is Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo doing what Grant Morrison did, but on a drug that not even Grant Morrison has taken. Yet.

This is where a new legend of Batman begins. We will be talking about this for ages..

When it comes out, that is. Free Comic Day is on May 2nd. You’ll be wanting this… and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I’m thinking!

Oh yes, if Gordon is the new Batman… what happened to Bruce? Wait for the next Batman….
