Thanks for posting this. I do have a some questions though about it.


1 So the name of this bat suit is "Super-Armor"? Every other source I can think of called something along the lines of TDKR Armored Suit. I read the comic this suit debuted, but I don't remember this armor being given a name in it. Did I miss or forget something?


2 Is the BTAC comic the first time the Super-Armor is given the ability to fly? I find it very strange that in the original TDKR comic and for every subsequent appearance in other media that I can think of, this armor was not given any flight capabilities until BTAC. If your going to construct a specialized set of armor to fight Superman, why would you not give it the ability to fly especially when your opponent's primary form of travel and movement is flight?

The armor was named in the filename of Ty Templeton's model sheets: https://www.dccomics.com/sites/default/files/imce/2020/07-JUL/BTAC_SuperArmor_5f07c28e34cf56.77255414.jpg


I think it is the first time it's been able to fly, yes. But I can't be sure. It's definitely weird within the DCAU, though, as the big armor we see in "Batman Beyond"'s "Disappearing Inque" wasn't able to fly, so... [shrug]
