Black Batman Begins by Kevin Smith & Scott Mosier

Inspired by Smodcast Episode 198 "Black Batman Begins," ( http://smodcast.com/episodes/black-batman-begins/ )

The Batman mythos reboots with a black Bruce Wayne returning to Gotham and becoming the hero Gotham needs... Batman. Not as a replacement. The real deal.

As Mosier points out, they need not all be black. You can have a latino Catwoman, Asian Alfred, what have you. Go wild!
