Breaking News: Batman Vol.2 #50 (Spoilers)
Spoilers upcoming! Turn back if you don't want Batman #50 spoilers………
This week Batman Vol.2 #50 comes out and has some pretty big events inside its pages as most people are expecting. The first one is something I have talked about for a while. Duke Thomas will be offered the role of Robin by Batman.
Batman Vol.2 #21 books are about to go crazy once this news comes out to the mainstream. I was told that he would be the main Robin in Rebirth and it looks like the information was spot on. The 1:100 variant and the polybag combo are the two that stand out so far as the ones to own. The 2nd print regular cover isn't easy to find either. This is awesome news from DC. Snyder and Capullo did an incredible job of bringing him into the story without forcing it. They let him grow at his own pace and allowed him to be part of the story in the background. It's also nice to see DC adding some diversity to the line-up by adding an African-American Robin for the first time. I'm curious to see what they do with Damian though. I was told he will lead the newly revamped Teen Titans in Rebirth to allow his growth. I hope that is true as well
The Duke as Robin is the second biggest news of the issue. Capullo and Snyder hinted at a possible new Batman suit. Well, they delivered and it was shown at the end of the book.
Looks pretty awesome to me. Glad DC allowed them make the change. The yellow outlining looks slick. I will add one more photo as well, and leave something for the imagination. That being said, no news or even hint of Alfred in this issue. Hope the rumors I heard were true. Pie in my face if not.
