    Well I think the title says everything and there are 4 posible candidates

    Dick Grayson-Nightwing

    Jason Todd-Red Hood

    Tim Drake-Robin

    Damian Wayne-His biolical son

    My choice is Dick Grayson

    i don't think Nightwing would step into Batman's shoes as a replacement... he's grown into his own character now...

    probably they'd just let the "Batman" dies and have nightwing move to Gotham to keep it safe

    Nah the world need a Batman or more especific DC needs a Batman and Bruce may die but Batman will live forever

    Nightwing may have passed Batman shoes but he may want to honor him and it would be the perfect think to finally see Batman lead Superman in the justice League

    If it isn't Dick I would vote for Tim but again on "Titans of Tomorrow" Tim as Batman id a killer

    And it seems that Dick is the only one who hasn't passed "the line" or won't in a What if story

    Well Dc has stated that Nightwing is his best leader if he takes the mantle of Batman I could see like 5 o6 issues later that Superman realizes he is the best man for the job

    lol so his writer said it in a book that he's a star in? i dont know if i'd take that as gospel ;)

    but i know he is a great leader and definitely knows his stuff. i just dont think superman would then bow down to him and acknowledge him as the best leader ever!!!!

    being a master tactician doesn't depend on who your fighting with, could be the Titans, the JLA, Young Justice or the X-men lol

    he'll use his knowledge and skills either way to the same outcome

    There was a comic called "Batman and the Outsiders," it lasted about 32 issues. Its been submitted here if you want to see who they were.
