GOTHAM CITY -- The burning question among all Gothamites will finally be revealed on Wednesday in Grant Morrison's final issue, No. 16, of "Batman and Robin" -- how can Batman afford his high-tech gear?

The masked vigilante is outfitted with only the most technologically-advanced equipment -- a memory fiber cape, high-gain microphones (to be the first on the scene), and a graphite-composite suit covered in Kevlar plating, not to mention his impressive utility belt with a host of cutting-edge weapons that would make even James Bond jealous. So how is it that Batman can spend his nights fighting crime into the wee hours of the morning and still manage to earn enough money to cover his pricey weaponry? He has a financial backer, of course.
