Anybody else see this at CBR today:
http://www.comicbookresources.com/columns/index.cgi?column=13

In June/July, DC are killing off Batman. Or rather, Bruce Wayne. Robin will inherit the Batman cowl. One of the Robins anyway. Tim Drake. Jason Todd. Or possibly Red Hood. Hey, maybe Jean-Paul Valley, it has been ten years since Azrael.

Either way, the book will relaunch with a nice shiny #1.


Wonder how long that'll last and is it just me or does it all sound very Captain America! ;\)

Just saw this myself. If true, I think it's ridiculous for DC to do. They've already played this card, albeit they didn't kill Batman, just broke his back, but I digress.

However, if this happens, I really, REALLY hope they don't replace him with Robin. Tim is good, but he's NOT ready to take over the mantle of Batman. I think everyone would want to see Dick as Batman, but I'd rather he not do it. Dick has always said that he never wants to replace Batman. He wants to be his own man.
The one who would make this scenario VERY intriquing would be Todd. I think Todd out of all of them, would make the most sense and interesting.

I found this hard to believe, especially with the Dark Knight movie coming out in July. I don't think Warner Brothers would chance a storyline like this that would contradict the movie.

Frankly i agree, but DC have quite a track record for dumb moves these days.

This is not a Captain America move. Remember it was done with Superman first in 1992. Now, I feel that it's a bad move for DC Comics to this. But I have been enjoying everything they are doing with the DC Universe. I wouldn't be surprised if Jason Todd took over as Batman with Bruce's and Talia's supposed son, Damian, as Robin. If I remember on an issue of Batman when Jason had barely returned, Jason mentioned something about Batman's tactics not being as effective as his. Jason as Red Hood was taking out gangs and thugs by blowing them up or killing them. I think DC has been trying to push this guy into people's minds these past three years since Jason has been back. Trust me that if it happens, Jason and Damien will be the next Batman and Robin. I don't like it.

This had better not be true. I hope the people at DC are smart enough to realize that killing Batman, only to bring him back later with some ridiculous pre-earth-multiple-crisis-alternate-universe-we're-making-less-money-now stunt to justify his miraculous resurrection, would only cheapen one of the most compelling and enduring characters in comics. He's been around for almost 70 years. He's not going anywhere. I hope no one at DC is pretending otherwise.

The lights yellow so at this point he's only heard rumblings about it. I wouldn't be suprised if a Batman dies. Maybe one from a parallel universe and someone could take over for him for awhile but the "official" Bruce Wayne will return on day.

Isn't this the same site that told us that Bruce Wayne would be in Archam Asylum OYL while Dick roamed the City as Batman? These rumors are as always entertaining. But, I wouldn't pay that much attention to them.

I endured the Knightfall storyline, but was miserable the whole time. If they follow thru with this, then this will be the first time I'll stop collecting Batman. I won't throw away money for a different Batman I don't care about.

And since that is the case the publishing divison for Batman and all marketable super-heroes is at the beck and call of a major corporation who will do anything to protect its franchises, and potential future franchises, they will not allow Bruce Wayne to stay dead for long, even Aquaman of all people couldn't stay dead after Our Worlds at War because of higher ups at Time Warner, and we're talking about Batman their Number 1 guy, sorry supes its true, once they catch wind of this it would be squashed or relagated to a small storyline not even lasting a full year.

This matters far less than you think. Comic fans see the movies,but the movie fans rarely read the monthly books. There are a million trades with Bruce as Batman. The current state of the character in the monthly comic just doesnt mean anything to the people who make the movies.

There arent enough of us monthly comic readers for them to care.

Well that's very Captain America of them. They should redesign his costume and task Alex Ross to come up with the revamped outfit.

The mantle should be passed on to Nightwing.

Incidentally, I loathe the idea of killing Bruce Wayne even if he died years ago mentally as a child when his parents were murdered.

This whole idea is ridiculous. They're just going to screw up the character.

I doubt its true. That same source reported that by the end of the Infinite Crisis, Bruce Wayne would be in an insane asylum and there would be a new Batman.

Didn't happen though.

I was waiting for DC to do something like this but I didn't think that it would be Batman. DC likes to ride Marvel's coattails and since Marvel got such publicity for killing off Captain America, it only makes "sense" for DC to do this.

No way do you kill bruce wayne. Even the creators of batman beyond refused to do it. If I live another hundred years I still want to see Bruce az Batman.

Does it ever! I've noticed the Cap and Batman similiarites recently most of them being dead sidekicks that have come back to life to haunt them. OK, maybe that's the only one, but still....

I hope when they kill him it's not at the end of something as awful as Civil War.

Seriously, that was really bad.
