From Nightwing to Batwoman, the Batman Family is undoubtedly the most iconic superhero family in the entire DC Universe. As 2019 marks the 80th anniversary of the Dark Knight's first appearance, it seems that current Batman scribe Tom King is putting together a Bat-Family reunion in the pages of the 1000th issue of Detective Comics, indicating something big is going to happen.
Posted on Twitter by King, the page -- featuring art by Bat-veteran Tony S. Daniel and colorist Tomeu Morey -- features Bat-family members Nightwing, both the Damian Wayne and Tim Drake incarnations of Robin, The Signal, Red Hood, Spoiler, Batgirl, Batwoman, The Huntress, Orphan, Alfred, Catwoman and Ace the Bat-Hound standing on a rooftop, almost as if they're waiting for Batman himself to appear.
The only comment King has about this scene is that it's coming up in Detective Comics #1000, leaving it ambiguous as to what's going on in the scene.
Whatever will happen in the issue may be something massive if it requires the help of the Bat-Family to help take it down. It may also tie into King's planned 100-issue run on Batman, as well as the introduction of the Arkham Knight into the main DC continuity. However, like any good ex-CIA officer, King obviously knows not to let that kind of information out and instead keeps fans guessing.
Detective Comics #1000 goes on sale March 27.
