    RIP Bruce Wayne

    http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage...cle1982939.ece

    By SIMON ROTHSTEIN

    Bruce Wayne – who by night is Batman – gets murdered by a man claiming to be the father he thought was dead.

    In a highly controversial new storyline Bruce, who first appeared in 1939, is killed by Simon Hurt – the leader of the shady Black Glove organisation.

    Simon claims he is really Dr Thomas Wayne, saying he faked his own passing when Bruce was a child.

    The superhero dies when he tries to stop his foe escaping by helicopter in the new comic Batman R.I.P.

    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.

    "This is the end of Bruce Wayne as Batman."

    Batman will live on though, with another character filling his Batsuit.

    Two likely contenders are Dick Grayson - the original Robin - or current Boy Wonder, Tim Drake.

    No body no death. It's one of the basic foundations of comics.

    Comics are like soap operas: No character is dead for good, even if you're using their skull as a desk ashtray. With all the money to being made by movies featuring a Bruce Wayne/Batman, there's no way he won't be back in a few months.

    I thought this was going to be an obit for Adam West.

    Dick Grayson should be the new Batman.

    Lame. He'll be back in a few months. This is why I've long since stopped reading many comics.

    That's the rumor.

    I stopped reading them years ago. If they come out with a movie, I'll see it, but that's about it.

    Re: RIP Bruce Wayne

    If I read comics, I'd never read a "Batman" comic without Bruce Wayne as Batman.

    It kinda defeats the whole pathos of the character. Batman's just another idiot in a costume without Wayne.

    So Captain America's not Steve Rodgers.

    And Batman's not Bruce Wayne?

    That's interesting. (read: Stupid.)

    I wonder if the two decisions have anything to do with each other?
