* PostScriptSeason: Tynion wasn't intended to be on ''Batman'' for as long as he was. He was put on the series to fill some issues after DC prematurely ended Tom King's ''Batman'' run (which was explicitly meant to go up to issue 100) and while they sorted out their ''Generation Five'' initiative. That initiative would've seen their heroes aged up and Batman replaced by a black successor (it was apparently meant to be ''Luke'' Fox) with a series by John Ridley. However, ''Generation Five'' was scrapped and reworked into ''ComicBook/DCFutureState'', and the positive reception to Tynion's run meant that he was kept on as the main ''Batman'' writer.

* PostScriptSeason: Tynion wasn't intended to be on ''Batman'' long-term. He was put on the series to fill some issues while DC sorted out their ''Generation Five'' initiative, which would've seen their heroes aged up and Batman replaced by a black successor (it was apparently meant to be ''Luke'' Fox) with a series by John Ridley. However, ''Generation Five'' was scrapped and reworked into ''ComicBook/DCFutureState'', and the positive reception to Tynion's run meant that he was kept on as the main ''Batman'' writer.
** Ironically enough, it eventually turned out that Tynion ''won't'' be sticking around for the long-term after all as the writer turned down a three year exclusivity deal from DC Comics in favor of launching new independent works with Substack. This brought his Batman to an early end in November, and as consequence, leaves whatever his original plans for the Bat-Status Quo in WhatCouldHaveBeen territory.

** Punchline wasn't really hyped up by DC themselves -- it was more of a thing that speculators decided, which caused her first appearances to go up in price. However, DC ''immediately'' capitalised on the artificial hype and gave her focus and a backup feature in ''Joker''.

** Ghost-Maker was introduced as being Batman's equal, a former fellow student with Bruce when he was training across the world. Not long after his introduction, he was immediately added to the Bat-Family and then given his own backup in Batman.

* UnCanceled: What was meant to only be a transitional run after Creator/TomKing was abruptly removed from the book 15 issues early, proved to be both a critical and commercial hit. This combined with the ''Generation Five'' initiative being canned after the firing of ''Creator/DanDidio'', led to James Tynion IV becoming the official long-term writer for Batman.
