Earth-2’s Batman is Dick Grayson. Does he have what it takes to be a true Batman and follow in the legacy of Bruce and Thomas Wayne before him? Or will he only ever be a stand-in? Beyond anything else, he has one overriding goal...to find his missing son. Is that a job for the Batman...or is it something only Dick Grayson can do? The Wayne legacy is at stake. This is an epic turning point in the history of Earth-2’s Batman.

NOTE: Though the solicitation names Dick Grayson as the successor to Bruce Wayne's legacy on Earth-2, the story actually centres on Helena Wayne and Dick Grayson and how they fit into that legacy. On a similar note, Dick is not correctly represented in this solicitation as he is not an actual member of the Wayne family in the New 52 Earth-2 continuity, and therefore not an actual successor to that legacy as the solicitation is implying. Helena is the only legitimate successor to her father's legacy in the established continuity (also acknowledged in the annual story), and Dick's place in that legacy is only facilitated by his relationship to Helena. In the current continuity, Dick made the decision to become "Batman" because he learned other Dick Graysons in the multiverse were close to Batman, not because he actually knew Helena's father. This was one of the storylines explored in the Convergence miniseries of 2015.
