DC Comics' BATMAN AND ROBIN To Introduce Female Hush Variant Named Shush This October

It seems there will be a new Gotham City villain who'll be copying the Hush persona in the pages of Joshua Williamson and Simone Di Meo's Batman and Robin.

The cover for this October's Batman and Robin #2 has revealed that a new Gotham City villain will be debuting, named Shush. Apparently, she's inspired by Thomas Elliot aka Hush.

The twelve-issue storyline Batman: Hush storyline is a fan favorite so it will be interesting to learn more backstory for Hush.

Williamson and Di Meo are actually relaunching the Batman and Robin title in September. The new Shush is said to be the successor of Hush, so perhaps this is Elliot's daughter?

Williamson is also writing DC Comics' Superman and Green Arrow titles so he's definitely one of the publisher's busiest creators.

Batman and Robin's relaunch is but one of several new and relaunched books that make of the publisher's Dawn of DC initiative.

This is a year-long branding initiative that picks up where Dark Crisis left off and explores a changed DC Universe where the pre-Crisis infinite Multiverse has returned and the  Justice League has disbanded, leaving the Titans Dawn (Titans of Prime Earth) as the universe's preeminent superhero team.

In addition to battling this new villain, it seems that Damian will also be dealing with his first day of school. Do you think Bruce Wayne sends his son to public school or private?

"Shush"? Lmao. Pretty clever I guess.
clintthahamster - 7/26/2023, 12:33 PM
@THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - I want to hate it, but I simply cannot.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 7/26/2023, 12:46 PM
@ClintThaHamster - This^
WruceBayne - 7/26/2023, 2:39 PM
@ClintThaHamster - yeah I’m not having any trouble hating it.
Th3Batman - 7/26/2023, 12:33 PM
Why not just create a new villain instead of gender bending or race swapping an existing one ? Hush was a new villain and is now a classic, same as the court of owls.

hahahahahaha jfc

Comics need a break

Studios don’t wanna create new new characters cause fans that buy are too stuck in nostalgia mode and don’t really like too much status quo shifting

Th3Batman - 7/26/2023, 12:42 PM
@ShimmyShimmyYA - Hush, Bane, Court of Owls, etc... are proof that fans not only accept changes to the statues quo, but embrace them as well. The problem is, these companies don't know how to do it right most of the time.
ShimmyShimmyYA - 7/26/2023, 1:17 PM
@Th3Batman - fair fair , it’s just this weird ass space we’re in with comics nothing is moving forward and they’re just doing what if this event but it was different this time

Like that spider man / Peter is now the goblin shit is [frick]ing stupid just marry him to MJ give him his daughter back and retire him, people like Miles a lot , he’s perfectly capable of holding it down
Th3Batman - 7/26/2023, 1:21 PM
@ShimmyShimmyYA - People like Miles in the games and movies, I don't know if that'll translate to the comics. If anything, he only started to become liked thanks to those two, not the comics. The comics simply lack the talented writers other forms of media currently have.
ShimmyShimmyYA - 7/26/2023, 1:38 PM
@Th3Batman - I think he can hold it down in the comics but they have to commit to it that’s the thing with some of those other things you listed they stuck with it , I mean he worked well enough pre movie / games to be brought over from an entire line of comics marvel was cancelling
Dotanuki - 7/26/2023, 3:37 PM
@Th3Batman - yeah, you don’t know what you are talking about. He had a fair following far, far before the game and the moviee.
Th3Batman - 7/26/2023, 3:47 PM
@Dotanuki - I never said he was outright hated, but he was nowhere near as liked as he is now. You can't deny the positive impact the games and movies had on his character, and how he's viewed by the public.

I can’t wait for them to introduce a nonbinary version of the character named Thush.
mountainman - 7/26/2023, 12:42 PM
@HAILHYDRA - And a young variant called Chush. A black one called Blush. A Mexican one called Mush.
HulkisHoly - 7/26/2023, 12:47 PM
@mountainman -


Non-binary would be “Theysh”
GhostDog - 7/26/2023, 12:42 PM
There should be a license to write comics because some of these folks need it revoked
Th3Batman - 7/26/2023, 12:50 PM
@GhostDog - Some ? more like most. The main Batman title for example has been in the toilet since Tom King left it at the end of 2019. You'd think DC's flagship character would receive top quality writers, instead the book is on its 4th year of mediocrity, with many more years seemingly to come.

Sounds like an original villain JJ Abrams would have created.

Creative. Bankruptcy.

That's hilarious, I love it and can't wait to check it out
