In May, the DC Universe will be expanding with Earth-2. While there are plenty of differences between the normal continuity and a parallel earth, there is still a Batman. The Source revealed a character design for Batman of Earth-2 today by Jim Lee. Editor Pat McCallum shared these comments about the new Batman:
Who will Batman kill to save his own daughter? Right out of the gate that should tell you we’re dealing with a different kind of Dark Knight here. More ruthless, dangerous…the costume is familiar and yeah, there is a Wayne under the mask, but we’re looking at a man desperate to save the only family he has left. EARTH 2 is about to become a very bad place to be a bad guy.
Earth 2 will be added to the normal stable of books that TBU covers under the DCU Spotlight section as more coverage happens as well as the first issue's release.
