Re: "...a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent": Does this not worry anyone els
I don't know how I really feel about Batman being a mentor to Superman. I have grown up with these characters being friends and equals. One didn't have more knowledge than the other. Different ways of looking at a situation, sure, but I never really saw Bats as being wiser than Superman. I think it would be an odd dynamic to have Superman being instructed by Batman. There is a different dynamic that exists between mentor/protege rather than partner/partner. This is my primary concern, really. It just doesn't seem right to have Superman and Batman not on equal footing.
