Meet The Pupils Of Detective Comics, More Details From DC Rebirth

d12Editor of Detective Comics, Chris Conroy, delineates Batman and Batwoman's "pupils" in this new series, in the DC Rebirth Previews.

RED ROBIN: aka The Dropout

"Red Robin [Tim Drake] always kept Batman at arm's length, trying to forge his own road, but he's at a crossroads in terms of what he wants to do with his life, maybe hanging up the mask."

ORPHAN: aka The Reform School Girl

"Orphan [Cassandra Cain] is the one Batman feels a need to keep an eye on. She was raised for one purpose killing and while she doesn't want to go back to that life, she needs a new life built for her"

CLAYFACE: aka The Delinquent

"The idea with Clayface is that this is not someone who was `born bad' he had a real life, and circumstances drove him onto the path he's on. Batman thinks he can literally reshape him to be a better man."

SPOILER: aka The Troublemaker

"Spoiler is someone who's gonna get in over her head if theyleave her unsupervised, and bring major heat down on herself she's a potential problem."
