    For those who are keeping up / keeping track, my picks and explanations. This is all mearly MY speculation;

    This all starts because in the last issue of Batman, Bruce escapes the clutches of Darkseids minions, and heads off with the god-killing bullet used to kill Orion in the first issue of Final Crisis, which was being chased by Barry Allen in the second issue of Final Crisis. Bruce intends to use the bullet to kill Darkseid, shooting it with a gun. He either does and succeeds and gives up the cowl because he broke his SINGLE (well, two really) RULE of not killing (not using guns as well). Or he shoots the gun, and it somehow is thrown back in time and is the bullet that killed Orion in the first issue of Final Crisis, causing Bats to give up the cowl.

    Or he dies, who knows.

    Starting on the left of the picture;

    Batman with yellow oval is TIM DRAKE, who recently in his Robin comic had the back half of his head burned incredibly bad, to a point where he dawns the Red Robin cowl to wear over his Robin suit instead of the domino mask. With Bruce missing/dead/giving it up, Tim realizes that Gotham NEEDS a Batman, so he and Dick decide to take up the mantle together.

    Harley's been a "good guy" for a while, since Countdown/52, so she dawns the costume and fights crimes in Gotham with the rest of them. Could also be there because of her colors, relating to bringing the Black Hand and the Joker back for something big.

    Alfred is leading The Outsiders with Geo-Force, so he's in total badass mode.

    Batman with the smaller movie logo is Dick Grayson, who realizes it's time for him to take up the mantle, and asks Tim for help to protect the city, but not as Robin, as another Batman to show that they're on equal terms.

    The composite Batman is Harvey Dent, without his Two-Face persona, like he was during 52 protecting Gotham in Nightwing/Batman/Robin's absence.

    The double barrel Batman is the cop "third batman" from earlier in Morrisons run. In his origin he says that Dr. Hurt is responsible for him becomming a "villian" and crazy, with all the torture that Hurt put him through, so he does the Villain Turned Goodguy thing for a while and protects gotham in his own way, not in league with Tim/Dick/.

    Batwoman continues to be a lesbian, and yet uninteresting.

    Damien is the kid in the suit, with Tomas Elliot acting as Bruce Wayne -- In Detective he had his face cut up and remade into looking just like Bruces with the intention to take over --, the hush bandage around Elliot's leg being held by Damien as if Damiens going manipulate Tomas into making Damien pubic and the heir to the Wayne fortune. Damien's gonna know it's not Bruce so he'll use that over him.

    Eh.

    Looks kinda cool, but I'd rather they not recycle storylines.

    Maybe in 10 years Wonder Woman will die, and Cassie (Wonder Girl), Artemis (picked up the costume before), Hippolayta (the previous weilder of the armaments) and someone else come up to take place of her for about a year, until she comes back.

    It's true. Since her first appearance in 52 all that ever happens with her is that she's a lesbian. Other characters around her do all kinds of stuff, but she just kinda walks around and makes out with chicks. A totally useless character.
