DNDC Batman

I had an idea of drawing superheroes as if they were a class in Dungeons and Dragons a couple of weeks ago and the idea just hasn't let me go since then. 

This is Bruk Wainewright... last of the wealthy Wainewright family and the youngest of the corrupt merchant princes that control the superstitious realm of Gothhelm. During the day Bruk indulges in all manner of debauchery, dark magics and material excess with the other corrupt and insane Gothhelm merchants but by night he assumes the mantle of Assassin of the Bat to strike back at those very same princes. Is he Gothhelm's savior or is he simply attempting to hamper and cull his competition? Only Bruk and his faithful steward Alfar know the truth. Join him on the deadly darkened streets of Gothhelm for bloody adventures, insane rogue barons and shadowy intrigue. 
Welcome to the world of Dungeons and Detective Comics.

I've added a close up of the utility belt labelled for easy reference... because I am that sort of dork.

This is awesome. If you're so inclined, please do more.

Superman would probably be a paladin, but having him worship a god doesn't feel right. Maybe he derives his powers from an entire plane that was destroyed?

In the class based superhero game that exists in my head, I call classes 'Legacies'.

Out of all the things Batman is, he is absolutely NOT an assassin.

Jonothan,

I can't tell you how happy that comment made me and I agree. In the world of DND wouldn't it be advantageous if your enemies thought of you as a shadowy assassin in a bat cloak striking at their plans and terrorizing their thugs. I stand by my choice of the Assassin Class for Batman.

At first thought monk makes more sense to me, but after thinking about all the gadgets it has to be rogue or assassin. Maybe you can do Assassin Of The Bat's allies for the next couple, I'd like to see what you'd do with The Creeper.

I have to disagree with Jonothan on this. Batman as a superhero doesn't use guns and avoids killing, but that is a comic book superhero trope; in D&D "not killing" is NEVER an option that players will consider.

Personally, regardsless of the background story... the piece is absolute genius!! I love it!!
Who cares if he is an assassin or not; look at the title of the blog..... ART by Stowe. It's creative freedom of the artist and HIS conceptualization that matters! Don't like it..... draw ya own version.

I can't tell you how much I happiness, I agree to review. In the world is not DND is strong, if your enemy think you as a shadow assassin in bat cloak of their plans and threaten their mob. I insist that I choose assassin class batman.

I don't agree with Jonothan in this. Batman as a superhero without the use of guns and avoid kill, but it is a comic super hero; In the D&D parable "don't kill" is never an option, the player will consider.
