    What exactly is known of the Earth-2 Bruce Wayne and his family?

    We know Helena was his Robin at the time of his death, but was there an earlier Robin? Did/Does Dick Grayson exist in this reality?

    Could Dick be the new Batman? Might that explain his experience/skill?

    Could it be that like on the mainstream Earth, Dick was "fired" as Robin around college age, but on Earth-2 he never became Nightwing?

    With Bruce gone, is he now taking up his mentor's mantle using everything he was taught so that Batman will continue (as did the pre-nu mainstream Dick when Bruce was thought to be dead)?

I second all that. Reading this book it does come across that this must be someone very familiar with Batman and his methods. This could be Bruce Wayne returned from the dead, indeed I feel they missed an opportunity there as Batman has always been as much urban myth as Superhero, why wouldn't Joe Public be wondering if this IS Batman back from the dead?
But in terms of presentation I think James Robinson is too logical for this to be some random opportunist who fancies being Batman, although there has been no mention of a Dick Grayson or Jason Todd It wouldn't surprise me if this is one of them ressurecting the identity and carrying on Batman's work.
