I’m not so sure I can handle Batman dying. It was bad enough when Superman was killed off and then Captain America last year. I know some heroes have a way of coming back, but if you kill off Bruce Wayne then that story is done and I refuse to pay one cent for the issue where some jackass takes over as the Dark Knight. I was worried enough about whether or not the subsequent movies after The Dark Knight would survive after the Joker’s death due to overdosing, but now I have to stress over the comic.
I agree. They broke Wayne’s back, now they want to kill him. Bruce Wayne is Batman, that’s it. Without Bruce Wayne there is no Batman. And I think this is a little too soon after Heath Ledger being found dead with his connection to Batman.
Wait you mean in the Superman movie? He didn’t die! Well, he should have, but he ‘died’ like three times and every time he came back even more Superman like. That really pissed me off. If he’s dead, then he’s dead. Don’t bring him back to life again!
I’m not sure why DC Comics deiced to go this avenue with a corner stone franchise such as Batman, but they’ve made the decision to kill him off.
Batman is set to die in issue #676 call „Batman R.I.P.”, which will obviously be a huge seller. Going the way that Captain America did last year, and Superman back in the late 90’s. Check the quote:
„Beginning the epic story that will change the legend of the Dark Knight forever! Everything in Grant Morrison’s groundbreaking run on Batman has been leading to this story, and nothing will ever be the same again.
Who will live? Who will die? Who will be Batman? The answers are sure to shock you in “Batman R.I.P.,” featuring artwork by Tony Daniel and Sandu Florea and covers by Alex Ross.”
I know that a death of a super hero in a comic is like Roger Clemens retiring, it doesn’t last very long. But the whole killing off a super hero has gotten old, and considering that Batman is human, it will be a lot harder explaining his return than some others. Bringing him back would somehow cheapen the whole thing, and certainly have less of an impact than if Bruce Wayne really was dead.
But Batman is Bruce Wayne, and Bruce Wayne is Batman.
How can some other character play Batman, and it still be believable? I guess I just have to read it, just like they wanted me to in the first place.
Maybe (and now I’m dating myself and most folks contributing here at Cowbell Tech) it will be like what happend in Dallas; Bruce Wayne will wake up in the next episode and say, „What a nightmare!”
