So what would Bruce Wayne have been like in 11th grade? Would he have stolen Oswald Cobblepot’s lunch money and given Edward Nashton an atomic wedgie? Or would he have been the brooding, solitary outcast who always sat at his own table in the cafeteria?
We’re talking about a kid just a few years removed from watching his parents be gunned down in an alley, for chrissakes, so you just know the Batman was lurking just under the surface. Did he stop playground fights? Secretly take out bullies under shadow of night? Or did he sit around watching old Zorro movies, plotting his revenge?
Unfortunately, we may never know what he would have been like, but Celeste Green and Jeffrey Thomas at least got the idea started, via their (so far) unfinished creation, Gotham High. All we have are some cool drawings, but the Bat-philes among us certainly will enjoy looking. And wondering, “What if?”
