Batman fans have only just started to soak in the massive shakeup at the end of today's Batman and Robin #16 by Grant Morrison and Cameron Stewart, but for DC Editor-In-Chief and VP Bob Harras, the issue's potentially controversial contents are just another step along Morrison's carefully-crafted run on the series.
