So.. what exactly is going on with Bruce Wayne currently in the Batman comics? I've seen some people ask... so let's fill you in.

"Now, are the first six issues about Roy trying to convince Jason it is time to go "legit?" To print up some business cards and start using their special set of skills to help people instead of necessarily killing the bad guys unfortunate enough to cross their paths? Does every new story work as a building block to the next? Absolutely. Guilty!

But month-to-month, for the readers that like to be surprised by the adventure and the tone and the focus from issue to issue... Red Hood/Arsenal is our book!

"Yeah, there need to be stakes. That's been done subtly in other ways in the book. I'm a stickler on showing damage. If kids get hit in the head — I think if any character gets hit in the head, you should see the damage that causes. I think it's important in general to not have violent actions in comics not be without the consequences that come with that action.

So I really want to show that doing this vigilante thing has consequences. And sometimes the price to be paid is pretty high.

"The idea was that we had to build Jim Gordon up in a way that would be convincing? He can’t just be Jim Gordon in a robot suit. One of the big secrets is, he’s got to step out of that suit sometime. And when he steps out, he has to look good. So, part of the fun was wondering if we could transform him physically into someone who would look formidable. Greg just did a fantastic job of making him realistically slim the way you would imagine he would be if he worked out and got into peak condition. He looks good." - Scott Snyder

So Jim Gordon is now Batman and we've seen how he has been doing in the other comics, but what about in the main book? How does his first big outing go?

LEGENDS OF THE DARK KNIGHT #44 has quite a cover. Batman could grit his teeth like that, but only in the 1990s. This was Steven Grant and Sean McManus's first Batman story.

Nutshell: Batman and Gordon vs. racist cops. )

As previously discussed, Commissioner Gordon was not a terribly dynamic character during the pre-Crisis era. Which made the few exceptions all the sweeter.

One of the most notable exceptions was in the pages of 1955's Detective Comics #225. We're waist-deep in the Silver Age here, so it's time for some (relatively) harmless criminals, cheerful, grinning, out-and-out celebrity Batman, and crack aplenty, all wrapped up in some kick-ass Dick Sprang art. Quite frankly, it's a wonder that the Adam West show never adapted this story, or even portions of it - the story's entire concept (if not necessarily the execution) turns the goofiness up to eleven and rips off the knob, creating a tale that's just begging for the satiric touch of Dozier and company.

As it is, though, the story is pretty short - back then, twelve pages was the maximum - and there isn't really room to take the concept to its full potential. But still, it has a slew of good moments.

And what is that concept, you ask?

With Geoff Johns making head writer on Arkham Origins, I decided to check out what kind of Batman we'll be seeing come October.

If you haven't read it yet, here's what might possibly be Batman: Earth One's take on the "none of you are safe" scene from Year One. Eight pages out of 144, less than 1/3, non-recent!

So, Johns on the new Bat-game: yay or nay? Any others who could have fit the bill better?
