The Batman side of the DC Comics universe is set to grow even further, with the recent announcement of the Batman and The Signal miniseries. The comic will pair the Caped Crusader with his newest prodigy, Duke Thomas, who was recently christened with his own superhero mantle and costume.
This news - from the miniseries itself, to Duke's new costume and name, to the concept of him protecting Gotham during the day - has created quite a reaction amongst DC Comics fans online. So we thought we'd compile a few of our favorites.

Batman and Duke Thomas, aka The Signal. I'm so about this. Although the suit is VERY Wolverine, I like this way better. pic.twitter.com/GVqNty32XV— ?Pickle Ricc? (@ericmatthewr_) August 9, 2017
