It's discussed in some detail in the thread i linked to. Short version: his son by Talia is given into his custody. The kid wants to be Bruce's partner. Talia has an exotic scheme. Bruce foils. Talia and kid should be dead at the end, but as Talia puts it, "the first thing my father did was teach me how to escape from certain death" It was fun and cool.

Now, he's bringing back the Joker. :twisted:

At first, Morrison said he was gonna kill off the kid at the end of the arc, but he really enjoyed the character and the drama of the situation that he left the "no bodies found" out.

Son of the Demon is cannon now?

I don't know, part of me likes the idea of Batman giving up all aspects of a normal life, including children of his own, for his cause. It heightens the bond between him and the rest of his crew.

But part of me likes the thought that, eventually, he might get to be happy.

With Selina, of course. 8)

Whatever the previews may say, Morrison didn't write the most recent Batman. I think there's a 2-4 issue break or so with Ostrander filling in. The issue was fairly forgettable; Batman protects Leslie Thompkin's clinic from...Russian mafioso, I think.
