RIP: Bruce Wayne?

Is this really the end of Bruce Wayne? After 70 years of donning the Batsuit and fighting crime is crime finally going to have the last laugh?

------------
(From IMDB News : Death of The Dark Knight? (Monday 24th November 2008)

Batman is set to be killed off after 70 years of crime-fighting - in the comic book which created the cartoon superhero.

Rumours are rife that in the next issue of DC Comics' Batman, published on Thursday, Bruce Wayne will meet a grisly end.

The latest Batman movie, The Dark Knight, starring Christian Bale as Wayne, was a box office smash this year and another film is said to be in the offing - but it appears the comic book equivalent has now run its course.

The Bruce Wayne character is now expected to retire from his duties, perhaps leading to a new Batman or an entirely different superhero to take his place.

If he STAYS dead, that will be a feat.

I mean, they all come back. Even Captain America... just watch his return coincide with the new film.

This will be twice for Batman though, the first time was when his back was broken and he was replaced by BatPunisher Knights Templar Guy.

"Comic book death" gets so, so old. It's one of the main reasons why I usually avoid superhero comics.

The killed Captain America was a shapechanged Skrull infiltrator - he'll be back long before that.

Was this something that was just revealed? (I've obviously lost track-- heh)

I mean, Marvel said it wouldn't be a Skrull... it would be pretty lame if the killed Cap was indeed a Skrull.

No, I was just making a fairly obvious assumption. I didn't know that Marvey said he wasn't a Skrull!
Okay, he's a clone.
