Carrie Kelly Poster by Shadow-DJ Carrie Kelly Poster by Shadow-DJ
Well guys, guess who came back to the mainstream DC Universe...and, from what I can tell, is more then likely gonna be the sucessor of Damian Wayne as Robin. And also another thing about her is that apparently she was a friend of his when he was alive and is trying to get clsoe to Bats and Alfred.

Is DC Trying to make The Dark Knight Returns a likihood of a future for the DC Universe? So far we're seeing some of Frank Miller's mainstays going into Batman's books, so I'm curious if that's gonna happen. You know...Batman and Superman not being good friends like they usually are, Supes and Wonder Woman are a couple, Joker is the not-so-fun crazy like he was in that comic, and now we got Carrie. If Damian turns into some sort of monsterous Joker wannabe, then I'm gonna hurt someone.

Yeah, that's really bothering me too. The New52 Joker is really the worst version of this character being not only not funny but also much more like a mixture of Jigsaw and Leatherface insetad of well himself. Seriously, how do you manage to screw up the Joker of all characters? An iconic character like he should not be turned into a knock off of characters knocking him off. Theres this thing that DC appearently wants EVERYTHING that came up in the Dark Knight Returns and other future stories to be part of the actual future of the DCU despite this story being basicly an Elseworlds tale. Sure, they made the Killing Joke canon but not without changing the outcome. This probably means that Damien will definitly come back and become an very violent Batman in the future -.-

What I really love about this panel here is that the people at the party wear the original costumes of the heros. No silly lines all over the suits and no black pants. At least some of the artists at DC try to take every opportunity to not draw the New52 costumes.

Well, he was apparently destined to be the next Batman. At least in one future he is.

I like Carrie, I think she's adorable, I think she's a good Robin, but too soon, DC.  Too soon.

I would have been more OK if we had Damien back and have her be like a new version of Oracle if they want ot have Babs be Batgirl again.

To be honest, the Dark Knight Returns isn't a bad comic. At the time, the image of Batman was the campy Adam West version and DKR brought him back to the classic Dark Hero he is. And yes there are bad parts but I found it as a great comic that brought Batman back to his old roots. And then Frank Miller jumped onto the Crazy Train and began to fanboy over Batman too much, making him into a psychopathic Sue in his works, making Superman into a pathetic wreck, and overall making things bad. DKR is good but the rest of his works just suck.

That aside, I found Carrie to be a pretty decent Robin. Not nearly as memorable as the past Robins, but she was good....until Dark Knight Strikes Again.

To be honest, I found the same flaws with Miller's later portrayals of Batman in The Dark Knight Returns. He was TOO psychotic, TOO violent and TOO well-prepared for everything. Yeah, Batman is quick to be Crazy Prepared, but even in the mainstream comics, he accepts that Superman could beat him with ease.

 Yes, in the early years, he was more violent, but Batman was never quite as psychotic as Miller wrote him. The fact they destroyed his friendships with a lot of other heroes (Superman in particular) and made a VERY VERY unlikable Robin (no offence, but Carrie... was just very forgettable...) didn't help, and the BS with Batman beating down Superman...

No... nonono... I like Batman, but that was just too much.

Maybe I am looking at things from a weird angle, but I always found Frank Miller was NEVER a good Batman writer...

And yet it seems that DKR(in particular, Batman "winning" against Superman) is pretty much the premise of the "Batman v. Superman" movie... you may commence the facepalming.

Yet Batman-fanboys think that it "proves" that Batman can "kick Superman's ass."

... Even though he had three broken ribs, his suit(his HEAVILY ARMORED suit) had been torn apart, and he was dangerously close to death; plus he had the help of an atomic bomb, Green Arrow, kryptonite, and weeks of prep-time while Superman(who, despite being facepalmingly OOC, was holding-back for the entire fightsomething that Batman's whole plan was dependent on.) had none... yet he had to fake his own death just to end the fight.

...Yeeeeah, some comic book fans are idiots...

Still. Always great to meet someone who actually remembers THOSE factors.

And, mainstream-wise, even BATMAN admits Superman could destroy him if he actually wanted to. Clark even once scanned Bruce's gadgets and figured out all their weaknesses!
