Batman & Robin teaser @ DC The Source Blog

Nice teaser here from Alex Segura @ DC’s The Source. It’s a picture of by Frank Quitely with some hints as to what’s coming up in the future issues of Batman & Robin and it looks pretty cool. My thoughts on the pics are:

Top left panel: This one is pretty obvious, looks like Dick & Damian will have some trouble getting along and there will be a lot of tension between the two (which everyone pretty much new anyway).

Top right panel: Is there a new Red Hood in town? Is it Jason back as the Red Hood? (The guns might be a clue that it is Jason as he is partial to a firearm or two). This character wears a skull on his chest, does this have something to do with the unidentified Black Skull from Battle for the Cowl? Plus there is a shadowy female looking character in the background. This I am unsure about. Possible new sidekick for the new Red Skull?

Bottom left panel: It seems Dick will have some beef with the new Batwoman, and from the Detective Comics preview in the back of the DC books last week, it looks like Dick is showing up soon! But what or who is the Batman type figure in the foreground, kind of rising from flames or ashes? Is this a hint at the return of Bruce or perhaps a reference to Blackest Night?

Bottom right panel: The return of Dr Hurt, the devil himself? Holding the keys to Wayne Manor! The person appears to be wearing the old Bat costume of Bruce’s father, as Hurt did in RIP.

Very interesting stuff. I’d love to know your thoughts and ideas!


  1. Awesome! Thanks for sharing this. Was that Doctor Hurt I see in the last panel?

  2. Yeah I think it is. Cant wait to see how it plays out.
