In http://www.newsarama.com/17692-batman-of-earth-2-first-look.html James Robinson says "This isn't some new person coming in to be Batman. This is definitely a part of Batman lore." Yes, Hourman is technically a part of Batman lore since both were in the JSA, but I suspect it's not.

Now let's consider the above comment that "Robinson has been clear that he has strict instructions not to unneccesarily duplicate existing Earth-1 characters. So no Lex Luthor of Joker for example." I also think it should be a character previously established as being on one of the previous Earth 2 incarnations. With those things in mind...I got nuthin' LOL

Somebody who is part of Batman lore... I'd be tempted to say it's a version of Dick Grayson, but then we come back the no duplication rule. It would be confusing him with the Bat/Grayson we've see on Earth-1 so I rule that one out. Harvey Dent is still a name I favor, but if we want to bypass the no-duplicates rule then the odds are it's someone unexpected and obscure... they just made the new Batwing be related to Lucius Fox for example, so could the new Batman be a Fox? Or someone similarly connected to Batman lore such as... Jim Gordon? \(phone\)
