The New 52 was the 2011 revamp and relaunch by DC Comics of its entire line of ongoing monthly superhero comic books. Batman was relaunched as Volume 2 starting from #1. As with all of the books associated with the DC relaunch Bruce Wayne appears to be about five years younger than the previous incarnation of the character. Superheroes at large have appeared only in the past five years and are viewed with suspicion. The stories build on recent developments with most of the character's previous history remaining intact and Bruce Wayne is again the only Batman with Dick Grayson having returned to his role as Nightwing.
