Batman Is Dead
This is the end of Bruce Wayne as Batman. The superhero dies when he tries to stop his foe escaping by helicopter in the new comic Batman R.I.P.
But he’s dead! Isn’t he?
Not really. According to the newest story line, he faked his death. Simon claims he is really Dr. Thomas Wayne.
Writer Grant Morrison, said:
“This is so much better than death. People have killed characters in the past but to me, that kind of ends the story!
“I like to keep the story twisting and turning. So what I am doing is a fate worse than death. Things that no one would expect to happen to these guys at all.
But, Batman’s legacy will continue.
Potential replacements are the original Robin, Dick Grayson whom is now Nightwing or the current Boy Wonder, Tim Drake.
Mr. Morrison has written storylines for comics including X-Men for Marvel and Superman for DC Comics. He took over writing the Batman series for DC in 2006.
Batman was co-created by artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger for DC Comics. The character first appeared in Detective Comics in May 1939.
What do you think of his death? Is this a cheap stunt?
Superman’s death in 1992 at the hands of Doomsday became the biggest selling Superman comic in history. He was later resurrected.
