Do You Think You Could Ever Successfully Replace Bruce Wayne as Batman?

We've seen that both Barry Allen and Hal Jordan can be successfully replaced...but could the same ever be said for Bruce Wayne?

Could Dick Grayson ever pull off Batman as a "legacy" hero?

Personally, I wouldn't say Hal Jordan was *successfully* replaced ... but that's just me.

His replacement had a longer tenure than Alan Scott, and sales went up to the point it was the second highest-selling DC title at one point!!

So while you can certainly challenge critically, I think there is definitely a "financial success" foundation firmly set.

I don't see Dick Grayson replacing Bats, but I'm sure someone like Tim could. But, I don't see it actually being a success unless Bruce is a big supporting character ala his role in Batman Beyond.

Dick Grayson could, but only if they rehabilitate is character. The fact that people can see Tim in the role before they can see Dick doing it just shows how little faith people have in the character now...

I wouldn't say that it is because there is little faith in the character of Dick Grayson. I just think that DC has firmly established him as a character that does not want to take up that role, and developed his character that way. Tim is different in that he sought out Batman and is now closer to him than ever before. It would make natural sense that Tim would over Dick at this point.

The thing is, Barry Alan and Hal Jordan were themselves replacements, who just so happened to go on to become more popular and well-known than the original Flash and GL.
