Tim Drake Will Get a New Identity Again in Young Justice #7

Poor Tim Drake. The guy has a lot of trouble figuring out who he is. First, he was Robin. Pretty simple. Then he naturally progressed to being Red Robin. Then Dan Didio, in all his wisdom, decided DC needed to publish exactly 52 books every month and they should all have the tone of being […]

The Future Of Barbara Gordon In The DC Universe (SPOILERS)

I am not sure how much we are to believe in Batman Beyond‘s statement that it portrays the definitive future of the DC Universe, in that it appears to still have a future cyborged Superman, his body turned into a robot killing machine by Ultron Brother Eye.

So Who In The Batbooks Has A Secret Identity Anymore?

To paraphrase Oscar Wilde, to have one Bruce Wayne ward exposed as a Batman companion looks unfortunate, to have two, looks suspicious. The identity of Nightwing, Dick Grayson, was revealed to the world in Forever Evil, necessitating his transformation into superspy Grayson, working under the radar for Batman. Bruce Wayne is known in the DC […]
