(But I'm willing to concede that others may feel entirely different.)
    In the most recent issues Batman Inc. does feel a lot more like the Outsiders than it did when it first started. I mean, Metamorpho is a member of Inc. now as well as a few other former Outsiders, so I could see the team living on under the name Batman Inc. but carving out its own identity.

    I don't know if that would happen but I'd be willing to try it if such a thing did occur.

    It just sort of has been dragging just like the never ending kids in peril arc in Batwoman. Morrison could learn to be a tad more succinct in his arcs, IMO.

    It would actually be such a focus that would get me to add the book to my pull list. Imagine a completely different writer and artist for each different global location. It would be in the same universe but could almost come across like an anthology series.

    Don't read it. Problem solved. That's what I did with Batgirl.

    Oh, so like last volume of Batman Inc.? Or better yet, Action Comics.

    If it in any way resembles Batman and Robin after Morrison left, they should just end it.

    I didn't care that much for the issues that immediately followed his departure, but I think the DCnU Batman & Robin is great.

    I agree the new 52 Batman and Robin has been great.

    People that think they are just gonna cancel the book after Morrison leaves are being ridiculous. If that were going to be the case, they would have just kept it as the 12 issue mini-series that it was going to be in the first place.

    The whole reason they turned it into an ongoing was so that they could continue past Issue #12, which is when Morrison leaves.

    I think the feeling is, we want the series to end just because Morrison is done with it, it is his creation, not because we don't think it will continue. I think we can all agree for the most part that there will be more "Inc" once Morrison is done.

    Agreed. I wish we would see Batman working with Tim Drake for some arcs though. I sometimes grow tired of Damian.

    I like the idea of it becoming an anthology series and think that's what's most likely to happen to it after Morrison leaves. It probably won't be as good as it is now but it'll probably be good. None of these characters will be getting solo series after the failure of Batwing (I'm shocked it survived this long) and I wouldn't mind seeing solo adventures with them for one arc.

    I'd like to see Bruce and Tim too...for at least an arc.

    That'd be cool but more on the international members than the other bat-fam characters.

    While I love the idea of Global Frequency type afterlife for the Inc book, something tells me that by the end of Morrisons run they set up may be very different to now. Many might not be active or even alive. We'll have to see how it all plays out before we can imagine how Incorporated can continue.

    I'm not thinking they will cancel the book when Morrison leaves but I get a strong feeling that it will not last beyond a year after he leaves. First off there will be the initial group of people that are already planning to drop the title simply because Morrison is leaving because they have already decided that it's worth nothing without Morrison attached to it. Then there will be the group that stayed on a few issues after who will leave because whomever takes it over "just isn't as good as Morrison with the characters". Between the two I expect it will shed most of it's current readership and the ones that are left plus the ones that potentially might turn to the title in the wake of Batwing's likely cancellation (the percentage of which I have no idea on) will likely not be enough to sustain the title for long. Of course this is just speculation on my part but I've heard enough rumblings here, on other forums and at various local comic shops to see this as a viable possibility.
    Characters come and go, revamped and revisited. But as long as you enjoyed them, remember them and continue to appreciate them, then that character, your hero or heroine, will always exist.
