We have seen Duke Thomas as a kid in Batman Zero Year.
We have seen him grow up as a confident of Bruce Wayne.
We have seen him lead the gang of Robins.
And now taking him up on it in today's Batman: Rebirth #1…
We get a better look at what is coming. Spoilers of course. From today's Batman: Rebirth #1 confirmation that Duke Thomas will not be a Robin.
And then lots of stuff about wheels, colours, doing your own thing, being someone else, not a Robin.
Well, in today's All-Star Batman #8 in the main strip by Scott Snyder, Giuseppe Camuncoli, Mark Morales and Dean White, he's still going by his real name. Which one would think should be a no-no in the Batverse right now.
And in the back-up by Scott Snyder and Francesco Francavilla, he's mocked for it. "Lark" is now shade, thrown by Isabella Ortiz of the We Are Robins crew.
However it looks like there is a name out there.
Just neither Duke – or us – are getting it yet.
All-Star Batman #8 is published today from DC Comics.
