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.

When it comes right down to it, DC Comics has killed off the Triumvirate to relaunch them in a new way... Wonder Woman died in the original Crisis on Infinite Earths and was brought back and re-launched under the wings of George Perez. Superman was the same in the aftermath of the original Crisis, and brought back with John Byrne, and he was killed off by Doomsday and brought back. Now it's Batman's turn. That's all this is going to be.

I'm more upset over the cancellation of Legion of Super-Heroes during its 50th Anniversary! :(
