The new comic is entitled The Dark Knight Returns: The Golden Child.
The Dark Knight Returns: The Golden Child will be a 48-page one-shot written by Miller with art by Rafael Grampá and will explore the life of Jonathan Kent. If the last name sounds familiar it should be if you kept up with the happenings of Dark Knight 3: The Master Race. The character is essentially the offspring of Wonder Woman and Superman.
The possibilities for what he could be just started coming to mind like crazy. I thought the contrast between him and Lara could be really exciting. Lara has so much power and passion, so for the little boy to embody all of the wisdom and intelligence of the Kryptonian race would be an exciting new dimension. He really sort of developed as a little floating Buddha, someone who when he wasn’t even a toddler yet was speaking in full sentences and had an understanding of events that surpassed anybody else’s. He’s the most magical member of the family.
We also will get a deeper look at the illustrious Carrie, as the new Robin stands as the new Batwoman of Gotham. And judging from the cover and what we love about Carrie, she remains quite the brawler and the true spirtual successor worthy of the mantle of the Bat.
Frank Miller spoke on what fans can expect:
Carrie is, as always, the smartest kid on the block. She was also trained by someone who is not cowed by power. Even knowing that she is not a ‘superhero’ in terms of powers, she will not accept anything that in any way smacks of subjugation. Look at her! She began her superhero career by running away from home. She was a rebel from the get-go.
What better way to keep the blood feud alive?
