after listening to this weeks podcast James Robinson mentions there will be a new Batman on Earth 2!!

now if we go for the not using the same characters in both universe rule, we can say it won't be Dick, Jason, Tim or Damian

maybe Jean Paul Valley?!! if there were no rules against using characters from the main dc universe i'd love to see a pre new 52 Tim Drake in the role

who do you guys think it will be?!

Jean Paul Valley....Maybe, I was never a big fan of him. I think it should be a powered to make things intresting.

Dick Grayson is the only person I find suitable for the role.

@DarkKnightDetective: Earth 2 has been about modernization of Golden Age comic book characters So, as much as I wouldn't mind seeing Damian, I don't think it'll end up being him.

@The_Tree: I know, but I am just saying that Damian would make a good Batman if he did not kill, Maybe it is the kid that is actully named Batman.

@Nightwing82: That rule doesn't apply now that there is two Red Tornadoes also this is the Eart-2 Batman:

If Damian does die in Batman Inc 8, then I think having Damian be Batman in Earth 2 would make a universe crossover with the main DCU that much more personally impactful to Bruce.

To be fair, Earth 2 Red Tornado could be Ma Hunkel. Thus, not making an Earth 2 duplicate.

@DarkKnightDetective: All joking aside I wouldn't bat an eyelash if it was Alfred. Maybe he's younger in Earth 2 I don't know. I'm starting to bend the world to make my theory fit.

@spinningbirdcake: I think Batman was older on Earth-2 when he died than what he is on Earth Prime now so it would be kind of weird if Alfred was younger. 
 
I wonder if DC forced James to put a Batman on Earh-2 because of sales.

Probably Dick Grayson. So far, most of the old names from the pre flashpoint Justice Society have been used on the rebooted earth 2 with few exceptions. The current earth 2 Dr Fate is a new egyptian character but Kent Nelson still has been retained as the original Dr Fate. The earth 2 batman costume reminds me a little bit of Terry McGinnis.

I hope its Dick. He might be a new non-white version (half black, dyed red hair, flattop haircut, gauged ears *fingers crossed*). That'd be pretty cool. If it is me Dick or a new version, I he needs to be slimmed down.

She can be built as an android, rather than being human. Hence, why I said "new universe, new rules".

your misunderstanding me, their is a robot on earth 2 that is female and is obviously Red Tornado/Cyclone i just dont get why they would end up calling her Ma Hunkel

Both earth 2 and main earth Red Tornado seem to be robots and might have a related origin. For main earth Red Tornado, it is mentioned the technology came from another place (earth 2 ? apokolips ?). Should be no confusion if there are 2 Dicks : earth 2 Dick Batman and main earth Dick Nightwing, earth 2 batman is Dick, main earth batman is bruce wayne. If earth 2 comic gets cancelled later on, all possible confusion will also disappear.

The robotic Earth 2 RT could be an android, a synthetic human, who has a Ma Hunkel-esque identity. She's a new adaption. We'll just have to wait and see.

Ma Hunkel was the original, Golden Age Red Tornado. Earth 2 is about revamping Golden Age characters. They could be revamping Ma Hunkel to where she is an android rather than a human being.

For the earth 2 female synthetic red tornado, I do hope she has working sex organs. I am more used to Dick Grayson on earth 2 since I started in the bronze age. Post-coie, the Justice Society lost Dick Grayson for several decades. For replacement earth 2 superman, can try dev em or lar gand.

Ma Hunkel was the original, Golden Age Red Tornado.

I know this

Earth 2 is about revamping Golden Age characters

I know this too. im not an idiot.

. They could be revamping Ma Hunkel to where she is an android rather than a human being.

im saying that technically she wouldnt be Ma Hunkel, because she's a robot.

I just purchased the new Annual. It is revealed that this Batman kills. So it is not Dick or Tim. I have a feeling that it is Jason Todd. It could also be Thomas Wayne, but I highly doubt it. The dialogue just seemed like Jason.

Is anyone sure the Batman that died was Bruce Wayne. Why does the Batman that died resemble Dick Grayson. He has a similar style costume and his fighting sticks as weapons. Do you remember this statement in 2012

Earth Two editor Pat McCallum had this to say:

Who will Batman kill to save his own daughter? Right out of the gate that should tell you we’re dealing with a different kind of Dark Knight here. More ruthless, dangerous…the costume is familiar and yeah, there is a Wayne under the mask, but we’re looking at a man desperate to save the only family he has left. EARTH 2 is about to become a very bad place to be a bad guy.

He says there is a Wayne under the mask, but which Wayne?

Who's to say that the Batman who dies was Bruce? "Yeah, there is a Wayne under the mask, but we're looking at a man desperate to save the only family he has left." So maybe the Batman who died was Thomas wayne, and his son Bruce decided to take after his father and dawn the cape and cowl.
