This Just Happened: Earth 2's Batman Revealed

By Clark Bull Friday, January 31st, 2014

SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read EARTH 2 ANNUAL #2 and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now (major spoilers ahead!).


The origin of Earth 2’s new Batman has been highly anticipated since the cape and cowl re-emerged, worn by a mystery figure, after the events of Darkseid’s initial invasion – the invasion that caused Earth 2’s Wonder Woman, Superman and Batman to give their lives to stop the alien force.


Who is this new Batman? Did Bruce Wayne survive? Or is Batman now a parallel Dick Grayson, filling the void left by Bruce Wayne’s death? Your questions are now answered in EARTH 2 ANNUAL #2, which takes us back to Crime Alley and replays that fateful night on Earth 2 where young Bruce Wayne witnessed his parents being shot by Joe Chill.


Because on Earth 2, Thomas Wayne survived that bullet.


And now, with nothing to lose, Thomas Wayne has become the Batman.


Above, take a look at the last page of EARTH 2 ANNUAL #2. Then sound off in the comments section about Thomas Wayne surviving the shooting in Crime Alley and now wearing the cowl to honor his son!


EARTH 2 ANNUAL #2, written by Tom Taylor and illustrated by Robson Rocha and Scott Hanna, is available in stores now.
