The Dark Knight Trilogy Epilogue: The Gordons by kinjamin The Dark Knight Trilogy Epilogue: The Gordons by kinjamin
Really wanted a beautifully tragic Shakespearean dynamic with the fate of the Gordon family. Where one becomes an embodiment of the weight of guilt and trauma his father carries erupting. The other is the embodiment of her father's hope and goodness. Note that both sides of this piece are imperfect mirrors of eachother.

Some notes..

James Jr. / Two-Face II

- I felt a little bad about this. The actor that portrayed Little James Projected a sweet kind of innocence in TDK. That being said, that's what makes this all the more tragic.
- The "death" of Dent really leaves a Two-Face void in the Nolan universe. People that follow my ish will remember I had Det. Ramirez as the next Two-Face, but I felt this was way more impactful.
- He's wearing an actual Cleveland State University sweater (notice the mascot is slashed)
- There's been several points in the comics where Harvey Dent scars himself to become Two-Face... something that really resonated in me so wanted it to happen in this universe.
- This is heavily influenced by the Batman story 'The Black Mirror' by Scott Snyder. Except little James here is far less psychotic. But I really wanted to push that it's more trauma that drives him here, and not born psychosis.

Barb Gordon Jr. / Batgirl

- I'm assuming some will complain I didn't put Barbara in her usual skin-tight outfit. But I strongly believe that the heart of her story is that she made the Batgirl suit herself. It wasn't until later did she have any kind of Wayne funded equipment. She made do with what she had at her disposal. And logically, she'd have access to police-related equipment. So, being the clever girl she is, she spliced some riot gear with a wing suit. Sure you could say I super "Nolanized" her look, but above all of the Bat family she really had to do it all alone.
- For people still not happy, they'll notice in the last panel she eventually does get a more hi-tech suit once she hooks up with the new Batman.
- Heavily influenced by Gail Simone's Batgirl#0.

Absolutely love this, I had shown the Barbra Gordon to my daughter back in November and she decided that this is her next cosplay for DragonCon if you will allow it. Love the realism of it, and my youngest is still stuck on your Robin or Teen Titans Go Robin.

Thanks man, she is really excited about it. This is a link to our Dragon Con photos from last year, she was Artemis from Young Justice. www.facebook.com/media/set/?se…  She really likes the tactical approach you went with, more realism. Just a pain in the but for a 12 year old girl to have to use the bathroom in. You wouldn't happen to have any other pictures would you? Or does she have any type of shin guard in the riot gear? I am making this myself and using only an actual riot gear helmet the rest is sports gear.

I'm not sure how I feel about the whole Two Face 2 route. I like the comic book route where he became a deranged psychopathic serial killer.
