Marvel killed off Captain America for good not too long ago and has refused to bring him back dispite all the b*tching they`re getting from fans. I`m guessing DC won`t back down either.

Superman died...they brought him back. Whole storyline turned into a huge anticlimax.

Bane broke Batman`s back, Azrael took over and was even MORE brutal than Wayne ever was. Plus the suit was way cooler. What happened? Wayne healed from his paralysis and donned the original suit again...big damn surprise.

D.C. should learn to stop being a bunch of chumps because it`s like the old cliche` goes, "If at first you don`t succeed, skydiving is not for you."

I might buy a couple of copies in case it`s worth some cash. might make a decent addition to my collection but I still think the whole thing is friggin` lame.

Lmao, what a retarded story idea. I get the whole full circle philosophy, he becomes batman because his dad died but his dad comes back and kills him as a villain, oh how ironic!(sarcasm) When killing a character with their origin at least don`t make it so two dimensional. I mean, how uncreative are you when you have to use the old "I faked my death :D" idea just to use it? If batman were to die, I would like something creative and twisted. Seriously, its like the mad embodiment of chaos, aka. the Joker cant do him in and yet his dad can suddenly walk in off screen and bust a cap in his ass? I haven`t read this, I`m just raging on this unoriginal and poorly contrived idea. I`m going to go read it now though and possibly become even more mad. ah , comics...

So Nightwing`s gonna be Batman? But he left Batman because Batman`s too brutal.....Batman not being brutal? thats just wrong(how do i know this when i havent even read a Batman comic? Thats just weird i know this......this is all right that Im saying right? this is a really long statement to have in parenthesis. Is it even grammatically correct to have more than one sentence in parenthesis?Man am I bored, might as well end the comment now, holy crap I have a total of 503 chars......END parenthesis)

Naw, I believe Bruce Wayne dies a grumpy old man after training and mentoring Terry McGinnis. I think Frank Miller`s work should be canon as well, nullifying any attempts to kill off the bat.

It`s total bullpooe.

Either way, it`s gonna be a big thing and, just like Superman, they`ll kill it by bringing him back.

They don`t have the bat balls to do anything otherwise.

Bullpoo. Superman has come back to life like 15 times now and Batman is way more badass than him.

"first captain america now bat man?"

Actually, it might just be possible that Captain A is not dead either. In fact, I have a hunch that on January 20th, Captain America will suddenly be resurrected... and he`ll have mysteriously turned black.

The way it should be. <3

My only hope is for this to lead up to the events of "The Dark Knight Returns" which is one of THE best comic books ever.

Dick Grayson CAN`T be Batman, he`s Nightwing. Tim Drake is more likely, but wasn`t he killed as well?

Also, Bruce Wayne cannot die, otherwise it leaves plot holes in the fast forward issues, as someone pointed out Bruce Wayne teaches Terry McGinest (sp?) in 2040 (or so) to be Batman.

I don`t expect Bruce to be gone completely, they will probably write a couple of issues and sees how it goes, if the sales drop expect a "soap opera" style brought-back=from-the-dead story twist to bring him back. much like they are doing with I am Legend 2...

Well I`ll be damned. Honestly doubt it will last though. However, if they replace him with someone like Dick Greyson, Bruce might not come back.

Oh, let`s kill of Supes, maybe then we`ll move on to Marvel! Why don`t we just f_ucking kill of all the characters everyone loves and replace them with pricks nobody bothers to care about!!!


Unless, on the other hand, this thing leads to "The Dark Knight Returns" then it`ll redeem itself

vv "...Am I the only one who caught the misspelling of "ORGANIZATION"?!"

It`s not a mis-spelling. That`s how we spell it in England, where we speak English English. Next you`ll be telling us we spell Aluminium wrong too.

Rule one of comic books: If there isn`t a body, there`s a 90% chance the character will be back.

And to all the people claiming that there`s spoilers? Shut up. If you didn`t know he was going to "kick the bucket" allegedly, then you haven`t read a comic in a long long time, so it shouldn`t matter to you. This "event" has been called "Batman R.I.P." from the get go and has been announced to be the title that finally "kills off" the Batman.

If you`re a Batman fan, it`s been kind of impossible to not know what this was about.

wow, that stuff makes news!?

Well, it is The Sun. Plus, it made the news when they killed of Captain America, or Superman way back when.

Not that it excuses it being on a news site in any way, I`m just saying.
