My fancomic plans have extended, and now include a Batman Beyond story. The design process for this was interesting. For one thing, I want it still to be a Gothic Lolita setting, but as years pass, we start getting away from straight Victorian-influenced fashion, and adding more of the punk and other Japanese alt fashion styles. And then figuring out the mechanics of the suit: the wing structure gives it a slight steampunk vibe, and the visibility of the jetpack boots is necessary for a planned plot point and also has some design influence from the long fall boots in Portal. I think it looks pretty cool.
