Batman’s newest partner is Duke Thomas aka The Signal. While some people are saying the name is weird (and it kinda is) I’m more focused on the suit. They did an Amalgam comic line years ago with Batman and Wolverine fused together called Darkclaw. So is this look called “son of Darkclaw”?
His earlier suit (when he was called Lark) was still very bright but wasn’t as “Wolveriney”. The character is supposed to operate during the day, where Batman typically works at night, so the brighter colors make more sense. Although let’s be honest, the last 70 years of “Robins” have a questionable color pallet anyway.
I actually like the original “Lark” design much more than this new “Signal” suit. The original suit was less busy in general (depending on the artist) and I really liked the bat logo on the helmet. The combination of the mask and giant white bat on this new one just doesn’t work for me at all.
Of course very few superheroes keep a costume exactly as is forever. Plus all costumes vary a bit based on the artist and IF they find a variation that the fans respond to I’m sure that’ll be the new norm.
What do you think of The Signal and his suit?
