You Can Stop Asking Now: STEPHANIE BROWN Will Finally Appear In The New 52


stephaieFans have asked one question in every single DC panel since the launch of the new 52: When is Stephanie Brown going to come back? Well at the Batman panel at New York Comic Con this evening, it was revealed that Stephanie Brown would finally make her New 52 debut in the pages of Batman: Eternal.

Scott Snyder revealed the news that made a certain segment of fandom rejoice. Stephanie Brown would return as Spoiler in the pages of Batman: Eternal #3, a new weekly series launching early next year. Snyder has enough things going on for him to make Bat fans love him, but he revealed it was actually James Tynion IV‘s idea to bring the beloved female sidekick back:

We know that they’re characters that you guys have been really vocal about. Your guys’ love of Stephanie Brown has been so inspiring to us. We’re really proud to announce that she’ll be coming back in [new weekly series ‘Batman: Eternal’], in a big way. Dan DiDio is in the audience to yell at us for telling you that.

No one was trying to shelve her. It was more about finding the right time to reintroduce her.

So there you go Stephanie Brown fans. Many thought Dan DiDio was keeping the character from coming back, but Snyder and Tynion IV have made it happen. We’ll see Spoiler in an upcoming Batman series. No word if it’s a one-shot appearance or if we’ll start seeing a lot more of her from issue #3 on, but I’m sure people are happy she’s alive and well in the New 52. What do you think about Stephanie Brown‘s return?
