A fugitive on the mean streets of Neo-Gotham, Bruce Wayne uncovers an analog model Batsuit in problem #3 of Batman: Beyond the White Knight.
The most recent problem of Batman: Beyond the White Knight includes Bruce Wayne venturing off of the grid in a low-tech Batsuit — and even presuming regarding spraypaint the outfit’s iconic yellow logo design black.
Concerns #2 and 3 of Sean Gordon Murphy’s alternate take on the Batman mythos see Bruce Wayne in his 60s leave from jail, stimulated on by news that his household fortune has actually been abused by company tycoon Derek Powers. Bruce contributed his whole fortune to benefit Gotham City in the conclusion of Batman: Curse of the White Knight, however it was mainly utilized by Powers to advance his broadening company empire rather.
Following his escape, Bruce immediately ends up being a desired man and is gone after throughout the streets and roofs of an unknown Neo-Gotham by an unique strategies team led by his previous ward, Penis Grayson. Bruce’s only buddy is an expert system originating from a microchip in his head that takes the voice of Jack Napier — much better referred to as the Joker. Regardless of a continuous series of arguments with this inner guide, the previous Dark Knight handles to make his method to among his safehouses. There, he reveals a speculative Batsuit that he established ahead of the Batman Beyond clothing.

In the “Murphyverse,” Bruce ended up being progressively disillusioned with his Batman identity and found out that he wasn’t even a real Wayne descendent in the conclusion to Curse of the White Knight. Intent on beating Powers without turning to his old identity, Bruce paints over the logo design on his newly-uncovered model match, informing the Joker voice in his head: “…We’re doing this without Batman.”
Bruce’s model match does not have the bells and whistles of his previous outfits and is a far cry from the Beyond match, which can turn undetectable, fly and be all ears on discussions thanks to unique sensing units. However, the match’s distinctly analog nature can serve Bruce well by masking him from Neo-Gotham’s digital electronic cameras and sensing units. “The knife and Batarangs are made with ceramic,” Bruce states. “The rest is graphene, rubber and leather. The idea is to gain an advantage by going low-tech.”
Batman: Beyond the White Knight #3 originates from Murphy, Dave Stewart and AndWorld Style, with an alternative cover by Dustin Nguyen. The problem is on sale now from DC.
