Damian Wayne and Chris Kent
Damian and Chris will team up for the first time, ever, in Grant Morrison’s new book Multiversity: The Just.
The Just - Legacy Heroes
This issue spotlights the children or grown-up sidekicks of the Justice League in a world that their parents and mentors have made completely safe, leaving them inexperienced and aimless.
“What happens when your mom and dad fix everything? Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman have kind of fixed everything so the kids have nothing to do,” Morrison said. “Connor Hawke and all those guys, Kyle Rayner, all those guys are hanging around and doing battle reenactments. ‘It’s my turn to defeat Starro the Conquerer!’ The whole idea of superheroes has been taken to this exhausted end point so no one’s got anything to do. They’re all just trying to deal with it. Damian Wayne is the Batman and Chris Kent is the Superman of that world. These kids, they dress up but they’ve never fought anything. So they have to deal with [the threat] on that level.

And here I thought Damian and Chris would only team up in fanfiction. Although it’s still not canon (happens in one of the 52 worlds), it is good enough for me!
The book will come out late 2013.
