2014’s Justice League: War marked the beginning of a new shared universe. Since Batman and DC’s iconic heroes joined forces and defeated Darkseid, the Dark Knight’s family has grown quite a bit. Damian Wayne – who’s the son of Bruce Wayne and Talia al Ghul – has become Robin (and a member of the Teen Titans); Dick Grayson is Nightwing; Luke Fox is Batwing; Kate Kane is Batwoman; Barbara Gordon is Batgirl (although we haven’t seen this universe’s version of Batgirl since her brief cameo in Batman: Bad Blood); last but not least, Alfred Pennyworth is, of course, always awesome as himself.

Since War, three Caped Crusaders movies within this continuity have been released: Son of Batman (which established Damian), Batman vs. Robin (which expanded on Damian’s relationship with his father), and Batman: Bad Blood (which introduced Batwoman, Batwing, and – very briefly – Batgirl). The World’s Greatest Detective has also played a part in Justice League: Throne of AtlantisJustice League vs. Teen Titans, and Justice League Dark. Now that this version of Batman and (most) of his allies have been fleshed out, it’s time to bring Bane into the picture!

Batman Bad Blood

Article by Gregg Katzman

Despite being a master of stealth, Batman’s no stranger to the spotlight. The Dark Knight has been the focus of several animated features (like the recent Batman vs. Robin and Son of Robin) and understandably so – he is the most popular hero, after all. However, in the latest Batman animated movie, the Caped Crusader steps aside so the rest of the Bat family can receive some extra attention. In Batman: Bad Blood, the iconic hero vanishes after an explosive clash with the imposing villain the Heretic. Yup, this story draws inspiration from Grant Morrison’s work. With Gotham’s protector absent, Nightwing, Robin, Batwoman, Batwing, and Alfred must step up to save the city – and possibly the world – from the latest threat that has emerged from the shadows.
