Missy Posted May 23, 2008 Report Share Posted May 23, 2008 See what I did there? Anyway, it turns out the new Spoiler is actually the old Spoiler: Stephanie Brown. Yup, Dr. Leslie Thompkins never let the poor girl die. Together, they faked Stephanie's death to get her away from the trappings of Gotham's dark underworld. Oddly enough, Batman suspected all this time... but never told Tim... because... because Batman's a dick? I don't know. They've yet to explain why Bruce kept that secret from Tim. Nor have they explained why Batman threatened to toss Leslie in jail if he knew (or suspected) all along. Basically, this issue was a lot of retconning. Since Stephanie didn't die, that means Dr. Thompkins never violated her moral code. So expect the good doctor to be brought back into the Bat-family shortly. It also explains why Batman never erected a memorial to Stephanie in the cave. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
