So there were plenty of spoilers leaked regarding the new Batman in the upcoming Free Comic Book Day title from DC Comics, Divergence. Bleeding Cool ran the ones that had leaked online, and we had previously accidentally spoiled a Superman FCBD twist as well.
But the Justice League revelation was new to us. And while the Batsuit news got all the attention, as the new Batman was revealed as a shaved and marine-friendly Commissioner Gordon…
The fate of the old Batman was up in the air, as was the Joker, last seen battling each other in the Batman series as part of Endgame. The final issue of that series, #40, is late. And will come out after the Free Comic Book Day title. Which may be a shame, because this comic does give away how that issue ends… a bit.
And that, folks, is why they – we – need a new Batman.
Divergence #1 is out on May 2nd for Free Comic Book Day.
Follow other FCBD coverage here later today. Be warned… spoilers kill.
