Two Bats are better than one?

I apologize to the readers who won’t get this strip, because they have no idea who these guys are, or what in the world they’re talking about.

To be honest the real reason I wanted to do this comic was to draw BuckyCap and Steve Rogers: Super Soldier. Some real nice costumes.

So a few years ago you may have heard in the news that Captain America (Steve Rogers) died. Well, his recently returned from the dead former partner Bucky, then took up the mantle of Captain America. He had a new costume to go with his new role. Well then a few years later Steve returns. It turns out that he didn’t really die he was just trapped in time. Well instead of becoming Captain America again, he lets Bucky stay Cap and Becomes Steve Rogers head of shield. Then awhile later he decides he wants to be Captain America again and asked for the shield back from Bucky. Who I think will become just Bucky again.

Well across the street at DC comics. Batman (Bruce Wayne) died a few years ago. And his first and now former partner Dick Grayson (Nightwing) takes up the mantle of Batman. Well it turns out Bruce Wayne wasn’t really dead, but just lost in time. (really I’m not joking here) but when he returns, Dick doesn’t stop being Batman, they both stay Batman. Then Bruce goes to start a company of Batmen around the world. Well I love both Captain America and Batman so I couldn’t help but poke fun at both of them. A quick note about the Flash; Barry Allen returns after twenty years of being dead and Wally West who was the Flash for those twenty years, stays the Flash. There are two of them now, with just slight differences in costume. Seems to be a theme here folks.
