And he – or she – is called Gotham.
Which won't get confusing at all.
"Gotham needs saving!"
"No, I'm fine!"
"Not you Gotham, city Gotham!"
"Try to be more specific next time!"
Physically, metaphorically, in every way possible, Gotham City has almost killed Batman more times than he cares to count – yet he always stands firm in his calling. However, when a mysterious hero naming himself "Gotham" arrives claiming to be the city's newest protector, will Batman bring him into the fold– or have a super-sized fight on his hands? Will it even matter if Batman wins, once Gothamites adopt the youthful Gotham as their favored son?
As for this brash new hero, can he seize the role of top guardian, or will he crumble under the weight of the most broken city on Earth? After all, this is the town that's been demonically possessed, turned into an earth quake-ravaged No Man's Land and both Contagioned AND Jokerized in recent years; is Gotham up to the task of protecting the city?
"He's young and idealistic says Batman Group Editor Mark Doyle. "Like someone who joins the Peace Corps… but goes into the heart of some Third World war zone thinking he knows how to fix everything. One problem leads to another."
