Things are going to get shaken up for the DC Universe after ‘Convergence‘ plays out and a leaked image from DC’s Free Comic Book Day release has shown us that there will be a new Batman in town. Anyone following the previews already know that there is a new suit for Batman that places him in a very off putting mech styled exo-suit, but now it appears that someone who isn’t Bruce Wayne is going to be wearing it in Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s new ongoing Batman series.
Who is it that will be wearing the cowl? You only have a few moments to turn back if you are waiting to check out the FCBD title yourself that reveals it.
Yes, I didn’t think you’d be able to resist. This is by no means the first time someone aside from Bruce will be taking on the role of Batman however it isn’t every day that you see Commissioner Jim Gordon putting it on!
That’s right ladies and gentlemen! It seems that Gordon will be taking Wayne’s place as the hero that Gotham needs and he really needs his damn Batmobile. Not only will the Commissioner be taking on a new job, but he has the Gotham City Police Department backing him so we won’t have to worry about any GCPD vs Batman issues going on.
This does make us ask the very important question that if Gordon is the new Batman what happened to Bruce during Convergence? Dead, injured, off planet, starting a new Batman franchise – there are any number of reasons he could be out of the picture so I wouldn’t get too concerned quite yet on what to expect.
Are you happy to see Gordon wearing the Cowl? Do you think that even with the suit he is still up to his peak fighting level to be able to go up against Batman’s rogue gallery? Share your thoughts below!
