  • Batman killed off in next issue?

    True according to the story writer Grant Morrison.

    I doubt they will kill him. That is to easy for Morrison. I have been reading the series and feel that Bruce will be replaced for awhile. I think a stint in Arkham is in Bruce Wayne's future.

      Very cool issue.
      Spoliers ON!

      Spoiler

      Actually I am not going to say anything too spoilerish. I just figure it is better to err on the side of caution.

      First rule of comicbook death.
      1. If you don't have a body, they ain't dead.

      Second rule of comicbook death.
      2. If you have a body, they aint dead.

      Anyway, with the way Bruce Wayne disappeared, I think it is safe to say he will be back. It may be a few months or even a year, but he will be back.

        Didn't Superman die too? The greats don't die they just get remade and then come back, but in a way that tries to suprise the audience.

            I agree, Melonballer. DC is just making a ploy to increase interest and sales during the tough economy. Some economists are officially calling this a recession. Bruce will return when the economy improves.

              Also Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), Green Arrow and Flash II (Barry Allen) and Flash III (Wally West) have all returned from the dead.
              Hopefully Batman won't be park of the Black Lanterns.

                I got hooked and picked up all of the issues. I actually assumed the title "Batman R.I.P." might've stood for something different than a literal death. But as of that last chapter, he's "gone". But I'm sure like MMPal suggests, he'll pull an Arnie and "be back". Didn't really enjoy the story. For all the hype about Alan Grant being a great writer, he didn't do it for me on this one. The storyline was tied to other Bat titles, and I enjoyed those storylines in Detective Comics and Nightwing much better. Now I'm stuck waiting to see if Batman's supposed last appearance in "Final Crisis" will offer a better resolution to his disappearance than this did. They're hyping some nonsense of Nightwing and Robin battling to take on Batman's cowl. I'm just wondering when he'll finally return; I just hope it's not when the next Batman movie comes out.

                Edited to add: My bad, I meant Grant Morrison, not Alan Grant.

                  I still don't understand why Grant Morrison has a career in comics. Everything he does starts as hype and ends flat. I expect nothing less than with Batman RIP and the next "Battle for the Cowl."

                  Batman is too important to Warner Bros. for them to do anything more than give readers a ruse, which could be good if they had a decent writer on the book. Which they don't.

                  But, buy up all the copies you can find and get them on Ebay before the next revelation which is... well, I can't tell you.

                    I have a thread up in the BOOKS Section about Batman, Robin and Nightwing. Two of those book will have final issues in Feb 2009.

                      RIP can also stand for Robin is promoted.

                          Didn't Dick Grayson becoming Batman for a while back in 1994. Bruce was still healing from his broken back at the time.

                              I don't really see Tim Drake as Batman even though he was Batman for one alternative future. Tim is too young and inexperienced to become Batman.

                              This picture shows a different Batman could this picture be part of Final Crisis #7?
