The Dark Knight: The Boy Wonder

I’ve mentioned Frank Miller’s completely insane All-Star Batman before in passing, but DC recently announced at Wondercon they’re going to retitle the series. That’s right, the heading of this post was a clue because they’re going to call it The Dark Knight: Boy Wonder.

I guess somebody at DC feels it should be included in the Dark Knight universe, which is essentially a universe of shattered dreams since Frank Miller’s horrible The Dark Knight Strikes Back saw print. I completely understand DC’s desire to distance it from Grant Morrison’s All-Star Superman, which was an altogether successful attempt to produce an iconic Superman story. What I don’t understand is why they would seek to further screw up the Dark Knight universe in the process; or why they would choose a title which suggests that the Dark Knight and the Boy Wonder are one and the same.
