A cover taken from the third volume of the Starman omnibus collection, here we have Bats with Jack Knight, the current Starman at that time, and the first Green Lantern Alan Scott.

The Source showed off the character design for Robin in Earth-2 today. Along with the design, there were some hints as to who is Robin and why she is so important to Batman from both writer of Earth 2, James Robinson and World's Finest editor, Wil Moss.
James Robinson: Helena Wayne has been taught how to be the perfect Robin. Assured as a detective, fighter, scientist, pilot and all around crime-fighter she’s been groomed by Batman to be the perfect caped manhunter (or should we say manHuntress) when she grows up.
Wil Moss: Before coming to the main DCU Earth…

Editor's Note: We have a wide range of emotions coming from everyone here at TheBatmanUniverse.net. Take a look at some thoughts and tune in tomorrow for Dustin's thoughts on this entire situation. We posed the same questions to a number of the staff to see what they thought about DC's announcement.
How does this news of DC rebooting the entire line make you feel?

Before we begin this review of JLA #53 which concludes the “Omega” storyline let’s take a quick look at how JLA #52 ended.
With Batman on his knees.
You read that right. Batman on bended knee, hands out and head bowed in supplication.
“I kneel before the Omega Man.”

Jade is then seen talking to Faust about the Starheart when she is alerted. And then we see Dick sparring with Donna Troy who assures Dick that her bottom line is that now, even though…
