legend of batman, you mean his whole history ot?

This was a good idea when the legend of Batman had been built up for years. After the reboot shortened the timeline to five measily years, not so much.

I think Batman Inc. has been pretty enjoyable I guess.

@JakeN7: Good thoughts on Green Arrow, Black Canary and all the Marvels, but actually, the Green Lantern title actually makes sense as explained by their history and the history of the name on Earth. I suppose you could just call them Lanterns, and perhaps that would be better, but at least there is a reason for the name other than a costume color scheme. Also, it is needed to distinguish now that they have the different colors.

@JakeN7: I cannot imagine Batwing dying since he has his own title, and a new writer was taking over just this month. I can't think they would bring in a new writer just to kill a character, but yeah, I can see either Knight or Squire buying the big one.

Morrison's work is quite impressive. I've been in and out of his work because I have not had the finances or time to keep up with all Batman ongoings until recently, but I am going back and rereading some of his past works now so I can be caught up on what he is doing in Batman Incorporated. The complexities of his over arcing stories tying back to nearly ten years of plot has really impressed me.

Did you see my theory about future Damian being the Heretic?

I'm pretty sure that the Damian Wayne future will just be treated as an elseworlds story. After all, there have been a ton of future Batman stories, and they cannot all be true.

I think it's actually just one possible future, which is what the last two issues of Batman Inc. have been making pretty clear. Especially since Bruce wants Damian to quit being Robin because he saw the future of Damian as Batman (which was back in Batman #666 and #700.) It's even more confusing though since Damian's future sees Barbara back in her wheelchair (only because when Damian as Batman first appeared in Batman #666 that was Pre-Flashpoint and Babs was still Oracle.) Not to mention that in Batman #700 Damian rescued Terry McGinnis and eventually trained him to be Batman. That is of course what happened in Batman Beyond which takes place on Earth-16 (although Bruce mentored Terry in that one so maybe Damian as Terry's mentor is the possible future of Earth-1.)

Anyways, I love Batman Inc. I have the Deluxe Edition of the Pre-Flashpoint collected edition and all 6 issues of the New-52 series and I can't wait to see how Grant Morrison's conclusion of his epic run on Batman turns out. That cliffhanger at the end of issue #5 is killing me though! What happened to Knight, Squire, Batwing, etc.!? Please let them be ok.

and the code names they come up with batwing wingman ...really? wow

Yeah cause Red Robin and Batgirl sound so brilliant.

I think if any writer created a new character and starts his name with a color, he should slap himself and start again from scratch.

Red Robin, Black Bat, Blue Beetle, Black Canary. Really?

I actually like Batgirl. Simple and direct.

I like how you missed the inevitable and arguably most popular one: "Green Lantern." Not to mention all the other lantern corps. You also touched on Black Canary but missed her (ex?) Husband "Green Arrow." "Black Lightning" is another one I can think of. Let's not even start with Marvel characters ('Black Bolt," "Black Panther," "Red Hulk" etc.)

This is just a strange idea, I get that other places may need a hero but Batman is meant (and created!) to work in Gotham.

In my view, the artist on Batman Inc. has really inconsistent work. Occasionally, he has some really nice panels, and at times, things look really stupid. He seems to have the most trouble with drawing people's faces.

Im borderline loving and hating the idea of batman inc. But the story is really good and in my opinion rivals Batman in quality

Sara Lima is so hot. Like "Talk nerdy to me" hot. Wow. Anyways Sara is right. Bruce Wayne is putting a big target on his head, along with the risk of exposing his identity And what about Robin? Will there just be one? And Batgirl? They are creating more problems and questions that they won't be able to fix or answer. They need to tread carefully. And I remember Batman as secretive and in the shadows. Not, "I'm Batman! I am going to make lots of me!"

@PsychoKnights: I haven't had a chance to check out batman inc. yet, but based on reviews I plan on reading it soon.

It is not the strongest of the Bat books, but if the concept intrigues you, it is worth at least giving it a try.

Batman inc is probably the second best title in the bat family now. Or atleast just as good as what Tomasi is doing on B&R.

The new 52 batman inc is good, but nothing compared to Scott's Batman.

Bruce does everything for a reason. He masterminds everything and has a plan, the bat family respects that.

meh Batman is all right. In my humble opinion he hasn't evolved as a character at all. Still doing the same thing with the same stuff in the same way with the same attitude. -snore-

video don`t work(

Yeah, I had the same problem. Normally, I wouldn't bother with a several year-old comic review, but I have a quest that won't complete without me watching this video, which is apparently no longer available.

EDIT: So, it wasn't available by going to the video tab, but I DID find it by going to this forum and going to the first page. Now I know.

Nothing to see here. Move on.

2nd EDIT: Now I have watched the video twice, all the way through to the end. It did not complete the quest for me. I think I need to walk away from these quests now.

For me, it's all about whether or not you trust the creative team to deliver something fantastic. If someone else were taking these risks with Batman in Batman, Inc., I'd be worried, but it's Grant effin Morrison. I trust him and Geoff Johns more than anybody currently employed by either DC or Marvel. Morrison does good work, and he's edging closer and closer to becoming the most important Batman writer of all time.
