Batman and The Gargoyle

This is an idea I wanted to do for a while but could never find the right images. Finally I got very lucky, with a Batman image where even the rain was falling in the right direction. It took a bit of fine tuning, but it was worth it, even if the joke is a bit hokey.

As I mentioned in my Defenders entry, I always had a fondness for The Gargoyle. I loved the fact that in his civilian identity, he was in his elder years, rather than the usual late 20’s, early 30’s. It worked perfectly for a magic based character and gave him a unique perspective. I am not sure of his current status these day, but I hope to see him featured somewhere soon. He’s too cool a character to leave in linbo.

That's totally in the spirit of The Gargoyle

You know, it wasn’t until I saw that cover that I thought of a great subplot for the current Bruce Wayne bouncing through time storyline.

Bruce Wayne is an architect’s assistant during the turn of the century period when Gotham is being built and suggests or somehow plays a part in getting gargoyles being built into all the brand new Gotham buildings as a way to alleviate the chief architects sense of writers block.

And the rest is bat-history.
