Lark and Bluebird are just fulfilling a weird bird aesthetic, with no emotional resonance to the characters. At least Duke might have a chance to make The Signal his own thing. Fingers crossed that it's Dukes idea and not a Bat mandated name.
    Duke was actually named The Signal by the Joker in the Forge.

    Why are they changing his outfit after this promo? Does get a wardrobe of outfits like Batman has different suits.

    Just call him Dark Claw and leave the Signal at the rooftop where it belongs.

    Of all the things you find to be defensive about this is it? Jason freaking "I was trained by Batman, LOA and The All-Caste" Hood wiping the floor with Duke in a dojo? Sure he won`t. One, it`s going to be written by whoever takes Duke in his own book and two, it`s a Training Day sequence. It`s a spar. Sure he will say Duke is better than anyone things yada yada yada, that`s standard stuff.

    But the fact you find offensive that in a real fight in the mat, anything short of Jason wiping the carpet with him to be "hating on Duke" is flat out ridiculous. Not to mention flat out jobbing.

    Yup. I seriously, seriously don't understand what they're thinking, having Joker (spit spit spit) name their favorite new character.

    No, I was reacting to the peoples saying that if Jason doesn't destroy Duke in 10 sec top, then the later will be depicted as a writer pet of untold magnitude. That's what I found ridiculous. Yes, Duke should lose, but he has what it takes to put up a fight, at least during training.

    To "put up a fight" in a spar sequence, sure, but you need to understand - and if it happens to accept the fact that more than that is indeed using Jason to prop Duke up and that`s where the concern comes up, not due to hating him (because I at least am not saying he shouldn`t have stories or interactions or a place or training with the older caracters, that`s fine by me) but because it`s a viable concern in general terms.

    I`m not that worried because despite favoritism towards other characters, Jason doesn`t have many definite terrible showings but it`s happened before. This may be a new writer so the expectation is a wait and see game.

    And to step up from the other side, hating on Duke no matter what is just something you need to not concern yourself with. People who hate on Duke because he wears yellow and a white bat chest will hate him no matter what. It`s not worth the invested time.

    You like the character, you support him, you invest your reading into it - they`re just noise.

    The fight should be entertaining. If characters one punch each other to win, everything will be boring. It's easy and logical for Superman to knock Batman out in less than a second, but it will be boring.

    Welp, the solicit for Batman and the Signal is officially out. It's got Snyder's name and Batman on the cover, so no matter what, it's going to sell well. More than likely Duke will get a solo out of it. But that's where this all will end.

    At they managed to turn a lot of Damian fans against Duke with this title. Also, am I the only one who noticed that Duke looks like BatClaw now? Yeah, it will probably sell alright for a mini-series. But at the same time, what a sh*tshow.

    Far from it. People commented on it here, on Twitter, and similarly, the MOST common response to the initial reveal of the suit was saying that he looked like Wolverine.
