The following article contains spoilers from Detective Comics 2022 Annual #1 on sale now.
An alternate Batman emerges in Revolutionary War-era Gotham in Detective Comics 2022 Annual #1 with a tricorn cowl and cape appropriate for the time period.
The annual, entitled “Motif,” is written by Detective Comics scribe Ram V and serves as a side story to his ongoing tale, which reveals that Gotham’s destiny has always been controlled from the shadows by the Orgham family. The Orghams have ties to supernatural demons and the present-day Arkham family, and Detective Comics 2022 Annual #1 reveals that they were already pulling the strings in the Gotham of 1776.

This man, Aldridge Pearce, serves as a stand-in for Bruce Wayne throughout the story, and he receives his Batman costume from a mysterious coach driver named Mordecai. The annual ends with Batman dueling a Two-Face analog who intends to sack the town. When asked by his foe why he dresses up in such a fashion, Aldridge replies: “The point is…to resist.”
