The last time we had an extended time with someone other than Bruce Wayne as the Batman was back about 5 years ago when Dick Grayson took up the role of the Caped Crusader in the wake of Bruce’s “death” at the end of Final Crisis. The bad thing about that run of stories was how interesting it was to see how Grayson’s take on being Batman differed from his mentor. With writers Grant Morrison and Scott Snyder at the forefront, Dick Grayson as Batman was something I really did not want to see come to an end. Yes, we know how these things work. Bruce Wayne would come back and be the Bat once more. But in an unexpected twist, we got the both of best worlds with the development of Batman Inc. Both Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson got to be Batman. This was undone when the New 52 came around.
