Looks like we have a new Boy Wonder added to the Bat-Family... Or a possible one in a possible future at least.
In the official preview to this September 17's Batman and Robin: Future's End #1 one-shot issue, Batman: Zero Year character Duke Thomas, who assisted a newly emerged Bruce Wayne as Batman during that storyline, has become the new kid on the block to assume the sidekick mantle worn by the likes of Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, Tim Drake, and the late Damian Wayne. In this possible future, he and Batman work together to fight crime, but in this story by Ray Fawkes and Dustin Nguyen, things may escalate to dangerous territory, as familiar enemies appear to challenge the Dark Knight and open old wounds of the past he must find closure to.
Check out the entire preview to the issue, courtesy of Newsarama and IGN.

Just in time for Flashback Friday and remembering an old superhero cartoon goodie, a certain show featuring our friendly neighborhood webslinger just turned 33 years old this day, and that's the 1981 Spider-Man Animated Series by Marvel!
As a kid, it was one of the first superhero shows I saw next to SuperFriends, and THE FIRST Spider-Man cartoon I was introduced to! Voiced by Ted Schwartz, Peter Parker/ Spider-Man had many adventures in the show that saw him clash with many of his greatest enemies - including the Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Sandman, and even Doctor Doom!
And then there's that classic intro sequence from the show... Ah memories!
With Spider-Verse up on the horizon this November and so much already gone and done for the character's legacy, Spider-Man truly has come along in an AMAZING way!
Pretty much what the title says. In case you missed it yesterday... The new BATMOBILE for Ben Affleck's Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, as presented by Zack Snyder via his official Twitter!
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will arrive on March 25, 2016!
