I think AZRAEL is Crispus Allen.So apparently Damian is going to be Robin. I think this lends credence to the idea that Tim Drake is Nightwing, although that seems to jump the gun though as I believe New Krypton is before FC, but where does he get Tactile Telekinesis and learn to fly and does that then make Bette Kane still Flamebird? Then where does she get flame powers?

Titans Tomorrow Future

In the alternate future storyline Titans Tomorrow, it was revealed that after her death at the hands of Duela Dent, Robin used the Lazarus pit to resurrect Flamebird, who assumed the alias of Batwoman and became his partner (and lover). But when he and the other Teen Titans (Superboy, Wonder Girl, Beast Boy, Raven, and Aquagirl) began to take over the Western United States, Batwoman formed a Titans East with the Titans who opposed their rule (Cyborg, Terra, Bumblebee, and Captain Marvel Jr.) and helped the Titans' past incarnations defeat the dark adult counterparts. After Infinite Crisis, the Titans Tomorrow timeline was altered by the deaths of Superboy and Bart Allen, with Duela Dent also being killed during Countdown. As such, in the Titans Tomorrow... Today! storyline, Bette remains Flamebird in the future, with Cassandra Cain being Batwoman.

Besides Wildcat other DC characters have also been depicted to be living in Gotham, including Jason Blood, Ragman, The Question, Plastic Man, Zatara and Zatanna, Simon Dark, and Tommy Monaghan, the anti-hero Hitman. The superhero teams Section 8 and the Justice Society of America are also shown operating in Gotham City.

Within the DC Universe continuity, Batman is not the first hero in Gotham. Stories featuring Alan Scott, the Golden Age Green Lantern, set before and during World War II depict Scott living in Gotham, and later depictions show him running his Gotham Broadcasting Corporation. Additionally, the Justice Society of America, Doctor Fate, and the Golden Age Black Canary have been depicted as operating in Gotham. Black Canary's daughter, the Modern Age Black Canary, is based in Gotham through much of the Birds of Prey series. Arella (formerly Angela Roth), a supporting character in Teen Titans and mother of Titan member Raven, is shown in flashback to have resided in Gotham City as a teenager.

In the latest Wizard, during a Q&A with Dan Didio, the executive editor confirmed the one-shots which are built around the Battle for the Cowl...

"There will be a series of one-shot specials focused on the characters that were very integral to Batman's life: Commisioner Gordon, Owlman, Huntress, Riddler, Man-Bat, and Ra's Al Ghul. We're also going to have an Oracle miniseries taking place following the dramatic conclusion of Birds of Prey (in February). And that also spins out from the events of Final Crisis."


Wizard: Will Grant Morrison be returning to Batman?
Didio: Yes.
