    Batboy sounds so wrong. It sounds like it's ushering Fredric Wertham's Seduction of the Innocent 2.0: Electric Boogaloo With More Homosexual Hysteria.

    Duke isn't a bad character it's just that Synder has gone about this all wrong. Robin's have been replaced before and sidekicks come and go. Damian isn't going to be the last Robin or the last person Bruce takes in but Synder he went about this in a dishonest manner. He refused to write the current Robin, he excluded all family members. That's not how you introduce a new character into a franchise.

    I like this new costume and I love the art and still keen to see what this new title brings. I just wish they had gone about this differently because I think really does bring something to the family but I'm afraid his going to get crucified by the naysayers prematurely.

    But it is still way to early for Damian to leave the mantle. And that Duke belongs age wise to the same generation as Tim, Steph, Cass and Harper is also not really helping.

    If they really want to add new charaters they should belong to Damians generation and not to Tims.

    Pretty much this. Duke could really be good, they're just going about it in the wrong direction. I would have loved to see involvement from some of the others during Duke's transition.

    While I don't think it really would have fixed all the problems, as I've mentioned before, I think it would have been smart for Duke's back-ups in All-Star to be Brave and the Bold style one-shots where he teams up with other BatFam members. I don't read All-Star but how many Duke back-up stories were there? Enough that he could have teamed up with most of the currently active members? Hell, a team-up with Tim maybe could have tried to show that he's not a bland expy.

    Honestly, his costume is one of the biggest complaints I had, and while the redesign isn't perfect by any means, I'm glad they gave him a slightly better suit.

    Remember that interview Synder gave a while back about wanting to Duke become Batman. It's all coming together.

    Please powers that be, never allow that to happen ever.

    Well, that interview never happened so, not really.

    I think this is the interview that people think about when they think "Scott Snyder wants Duke to be Batman." http://www.cbr.com/all-star-batmans-...ust-different/

    I think a huge part of the problem is the questions are incredibly leading and obnoxious. Snyder's response isn't bad, but he can only do so much with those kind of questions.

    When people criticize Duke, it means that they're criticizing Dick and Damian and Kate as well?? I had no idea that was the case. I mean, there's no logical basis for that conclusion, but apparently people not liking Duke equates with them just not liking any Bat-character that's not Tim Drake.

    Or it won't, even if Duke's mini tanks and we just lose an opportunity to explore something new for once in the Batman mythos, instead of reheasing the same old tired tropes, histories and characters, and the comics industry won't get any better for this.
    New ground is explored all the time in Batman comics. But when an idea is bad or a character is unlikeable, people will say so. Damian was a new character once, but the difference between him and Duke is that he actually had something unique to contribute to the Batman family. Duke is pretty much as interesting as white bread. Even Luke Fox is more interesting of a character, and he hasn't seen nearly as much push as Duke.

    DC doesn't get it that the fans of the other "younger generation" are very protective of their favs and don't like to see usurpers elevated in their places. It doesn't help the new character become accepted.
