Except that the Knight Trilogy was being planned at the same time as the Superman arc was. Superman just got out there first.

>In regards to Captain America I meant replacing the hero (Captain America/Batman) with a former partner (Bucky/Jason Todd) thought dead. Either that or instead of being replaced by a partner from their past, a partner from the future (future Tim we've seen in stories with the future Titans perhaps.

For all we know, there is no replacing.
