    8 team members would really be too much for a book like this, with the cast barely being juggled as it is. I personally think Kate is the only one who it would make sense to lose at this point, since she has her own book, and removing her doesn't throw off either of the new duos (Luke and JPV/ Cass and Basil). Not to mention, since the bootcamp idea stopped mattering a long time ago, her primary role is non-existent. However, it's a mute point since we already know that Kate isn't going anywhere.

    Tim may get back together with his YJ mates, Steph may keep appearing after each arc for her own shenanigans; we really don't know how it's gonna play out. But with what you said, the team feeling like it's split in two, they may as well just do that as a possibility. 'Tec has proven to be a financial success and, at times, critical success, so if they don't want to make more solos, they may as well give the characters more air to breathe. We've still got that hint about Harper being in a team book hanging in the air, and much as most of us don't want her involved, a 2nd Bat-team book could work. Not entirely sure how I'd divvy up the teams, but as for a title, Gotham Knights currently isn't in use.

    The only time I've ever seen an 8-man team really work is in the Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes cartoon.

    (Although the Justice Society is probably another one, I just forget how many members they have at one time).

    Yeah, the balancing of the large cast of the modern JSA was done really well. Didn't work quite as well with the massive expansion in 2006, but that's why JSA All-Stars became a thing...even if the art REALLY hurt that book.

    A few other examples of large teams working well:

    - Grayson's Titans. Team may have lost members as it went on, but for over a year, it balanced 10 team members excellently.
    - The JLI.
    - Young Justice had 9 members by the end, 12 if you count Red Tornado, Traya and Snapper.
    - And, naturally, the Legion of Superheroes.

    Large casts can work just fine. Tynion has simply shown that, at least with how he's writing this book, it wouldn't be a good idea here.

    Best roles fot current batfam imo:

    Bruce as Batman
    Dick as Batman
    Barbara as Oracle
    Damian as Robin
    Jason with Outsiders
    Tim as Red Robin (pre n52)
    Cass as Batgirl
    Steph as Spoiler.
    Alfred as Alfred.

    That's it. Kate could stay batwoman but off in her own thing.

    But this 9 are the core family. Anything else is unnecessary.

    I don't disagree that those 9 at this point are/should be the core BatFam. Definitely wouldn't just get rid of all the others though considering I'm a fan of/ a bigger fan of (then some of the core members) JPV (Who at one point WAS core BatFam), Clayface and, if you count her, Huntress. Not to mention some of the REALLY extended members (Misfit, Onyx, Renee as the Question) Funny thing is all three of those ladies already do exist in the current continuity to some extent. Someone just has to want to do something with them.

    Definitely not opposed to those characters and like them, but they are definitely extended family. Second cousins, aunts and uncles, etc.

    I consider Bat-Cow to be absolutely necessary.

    So, in the bad future seen in this week's Batwoman #6, it's very likely that Tim becomes Batman after Bruce's death.

    Tomorrow. The reason we're all pretty sure Batman is Tim here is because 1) It's Tynion, and 2) He said on Twitter that this ties into both Lonely Place of Living and the arc of 'Tec that comes after.

    Did we mention it's Tynion?
