> There is no definitive answer and it was done on purpose by Grant Morrison.
>
> When I tried to guess the answer, I thought that all clues did lead to Hugo Strange but I was totally wrong.
>
> Nevertheless, now, what is the best answer left in my opinion ?
>
> Congratulations to all the readers that correctly guessed that Doctor Hurt is an avatar of the Devil.
>
> That's the best answer.
> If you read anew all the Batman stories by Grant Morrison, everything leads to it.
>
> Simon Hurt himself provides the answer :
> "If not Dad, then have you dared to consider the only alternative?"
>
> Bruce Wayne answered Mangrove Pierce.
> Then, Simon Hurt said :
> "No, I skinned Mangrove Pierce alive and wore him to Mayhew's party."
> So, at the beginning of the Club of Heroes storyline, we actually see Simon Hurt with the face of Mangrove Pierce.

> So, have you dared to consider the only alternative ?
> The Devil himself is the best answer.

> Clues :
>
> - "dare"/devil
>
> - Simon Hurt : "I am the hole in things, Bruce, the enemy, the piece that can never fit, there since the beginning"
>
> - Batman : "In my attempts to see clearly in the deepest dark, in my efforts to go to the still eye of the storm of madness, did I open up myself to some pure source of evil? Did I finally read the limits of reason? And find the Devil waiting? And was that fear in his eyes?"
>
> - the Joker : "devil is double is deuce, my dear dr. and joker trumps deuce"
>
> - the Joker : "pleased to meet you" (Sympathy for the Devil by the Rolling Stones)
>
> - The monk works for a "dark master" (and there are pictures of demons on the wall in the background)
>
> - We see again the "third ghost of Batman" who believes that Simon Hurt is the Devil himself
>
> - The Black Glove movie : "The story is the Devil himself put a curse on the whole thing"
>
> - et cetera
>
> (or you can believe what Joker said about apophenia ... )
>
> Thus, here is what I missed and what was really obvious :
>
> Here is the "shocking revelation" that Grant Morrison was talking about : the Devil created Batman.
>
> Thus, Thomas Wayne may be the father of Bruce Wayne, but the Devil is "the father of Batman".
>
> If you read anew Batman RIP from the beginning and all the other Batman stories by Grant Morrison, everything fits.
