My main issue with John Blake is that he replaces Batman without any proper training or guidance. So that got me thinking. This film takes place 8 years later. Gordon's kids would probably be teenagers by this point. So, wouldn't Barbara Gordon have been better than John Blake? She got kidnapped by Harvey Dent and almost killed. Well, maybe not ALMOST, but her life was threatened. An experience like that would affect someone and encourage them to train in martial arts and other self-defense studies. So, she would have the background to replace Bruce Wayne and us fans would have gotten a character from the comics. Any thoughts or comments?
