Earth 2 Batman design

Above is Jim Lee's design for the Batman of Earth-2, who I guessed was actually Dick Grayson. Some info on this Batman on the Source seems to dispute that, but also creates a bit of mystery as well...

Earth Two editor Pat McCallum had this to say:
Who will Batman kill to save his own daughter? Right out of the gate that should tell you we’re dealing with a different kind of Dark Knight here. More ruthless, dangerous…the costume is familiar and yeah, there is a Wayne under the mask, but we’re looking at a man desperate to save the only family he has left. EARTH 2 is about to become a very bad place to be a bad guy.
Notice how he just says "there is a Wayne under the mask." He doesn't say it's Bruce Wayne though. Theories have speculated that this may actually be Thomas Wayne, in a role similar to that of Flashpoint's version of Bruce's father. But some have also thought that it's Earth-2's Damian Wayne, something that I'm not sure about, if we're assuming that Helena Wayne (Huntress) is the "daughter" he's trying to save.

Lord knows who this Batman is going to be, but I've got to say, Earth-2 seems to be shaping up to something other than just a Justice Society title, which means I'm becoming more and more interested... I'll bite, I'm in on the first few issues.

  1. From first word of this image I was thinking Damian. I dunno, I was thinking Dick at first but when they said "Wayne" my mind goes to Damian, since he may have been inspired to use escrima sticks from his time with Dick and he could have a daughter by now. A baby girl or something.

    1. yeah, this is what I thought. I don't know if it'll be DAMIAN, but Helena's brother is what I originally thought. With her on Earth Prime/0/whatever, its possible that he has more family left, like a daughter or something. Regardless, I think whoever this is was trained by Dick, the escrima sticks are too big of a detail just to be there "just 'cause"

  2. Yeah I was thinking Damian too. Just because this Wayne has a daughter doesn't have to mean Helena. It also says that he's "desperate to save the only family he has left." Maybe losing his sister made him fear for his own daughters' life? The wording in this quote is very interesting.

  3. What if this version of earth 2 Batman is Thomas Wayne Jr?

    1. another possibility. I think it's more likely that they take a different spin on something more familiar, rather than rely on some of the most obscure continuity.

  4. I really hope it's Bruce Wayne just so that we see how Damian reacts. Damian is my favourite DC character.
