Batman RIP (no, no him. And not him. And not ours.)

    No, really. (One SportsJournalists.commer just felt a cold wind across his grave.)


    First Superman (he came back), then Captain America (still dead) and now Batman.

    Fuck, dude. This thread could have been about five or six different people. Care to update the thread title?

    In this case, it's the comic book Batman, not one of the actors who played him. And not our Batman.

    They still print new editions?

    This storyline has been going on for a long time. I read the issue. Despite the name of the storyline, I never believed for a second that Bruce Wayne was dead. Even if the body does turn up in Final Crisis, I doubt they have the guts to make it temporary.

    By the way, why are they posting this as news when the issue has been out since Wednesday?

    Thanks for the clarification, 2much. I was nervous there for a minute. Thought maybe some crazed soccer parent had finally decided to do me in :)

    As for the comic, DC has done this several times as it finishes up a "Crisis" book. They kill off or send away a major character, like the Flash or someone, then bring him back after the Crisis is resolved by explaining it as a universe-wide reboot. Bruce Wayne may disappear for a while, but I seriously doubt he's gone for good.

    There is no way this is a longterm character death.

    Just the latest stunt to sell comic books, and the latest reminder of why I left my regular comic collecting days behind before I was old enough to drive.

    I heard batman's dad (he supposedly faked his death) is the one who "kills" him? I also heard they may make robin the new batman

    Both "killed off," supposedly stone cold dead.


    Now both alive and well.

    Exactly. And in those cases, at least there was a dead body, which there is not in Batman R.I.P.

    I'm sorry, but the only person who should be allowed to take out Batsy is the Joker. End. Of. Story.
