Batman Incorporated makes sense. Why have Batman be the only protector of Gotham while patrolling the world at the same time? As for the money from Bruce Wayne issue everyone forgets about the 12 trillion dollars that the Federal Reserve moved out of America without telling anyone where it went or the fact that all the big corporations like AIG won’t let the government look at their books. On top of all that the ending of B&R 16 was just cool looking. I’m thinking that Grant Morrison is doing the Invisibles staring Batman.
I finally got to read Batman Inc. this past week and really enjoyed it. It felt very much like B&R, and was very accessible for new readers, IMO. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens next!

I agree. Grant Morrison is great at making superheroes fun and introducing so many new things the reader never feels like they missed out on years of history. His use of Catwoman as the story’s pathos really tied the whole thing together.
Like the new look Jeffe.
4 Green Lanterns, 3 Flashs, 2 Batmen, and A Partridge in a Pear Tree
I’m just settling for Batman Beyond and Batwoman for now.
Just discovered you and really dig your stuff. I love Batman, and I have been so disappointed with the way teh book has been going the last 3 or 4 years, I have not been reading. I just feel liek Grant Morrison has been given free reign to destroy everything that has been established. The way I see Batman is that he is a hero on a personal quest. It’s Bruces personal vendetta. So why have Dick be BATMAN after Bruce’s death. The Public oculd have thought BATMAN was still alive, but Dick still eb Nightwing. And Now with Bruce trying to recruit everyone in BATMAN inc. seems really, well like a bad idea. And kind of un-nessasary. For me, the personal side of BATMAN, is what made the character, how he fits into Bruce’s psyche. But maybe that’s just me.
I personall y hated the fact, that during WAR GAMES, BAtman revealed himself to Gotham, and no longer the urban myth that he had been. I felt that in order to get back to this they should have done an arch were Commisoner Gordon retiers and, following BAtman’s lead, tells teh press that Batman was a symbol created by the Gotham PD, to help clean the streets. And that every time some one saw BAtman, it was actually a cop pretending to be him. SO then, Batman could still work in the shadows, but the public for the most part would think him to be just a lie. But what do I know? I am just a fan.
