re: #417 Eclectic Cyborg

I think it’s time for the Batman films to focus on something already established in the comics but only alluded to once in the movies: Bruce Wayne isn’t the ONLY one who can be Batman.

That’s why I favor a story idea of an older, broken down Bruce Wayne mentoring someone else Obi-Wan Kenobi style to take over the cape. Focus on the fact that Batman is more an idea than he is a man. He’s a figure who represents something important regardless of who is underneath the cowl.

That’s one of the things I liked about the ending of The Dark Knight Rises - Blake (Robin John Blake, specifically) is given the keys to the Batcave. And even though it’s not overtly stated, it’s a pretty good guess that he becomes Batman, as Bruce Wayne had told him in TDKR that Batman is, as you put it, more of an idea than a man.
