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.

He can't die... We all know he retires, grows a Tom Selleck mustache, drives race cars, comes back, strikes up a somewhat awkward relationship with a young girl, kills the joker, beats the shit out of Superman, fakes his death, retires with a bunch of young boys and the young girl he has an awkward relationship with, comes back again to rescue a bunch of silver age heroes to fight Lex Luthor and Braniac (cause that makes sense)...

No. Wait. He retires and wears a strange exo-skeleton, works with Luthor and all the normal villains to take down Superman and the other super-heroes, but only he is a good guy infiltrating the bad guys and doesn't want to fuck up Superman, and uses robot Bat-men to fight bad guys, which are eventually converted in red cross Bat-men.... huh?

I've come to the conclusion there are really only a handful of good Batman comics and the best of them have no affiliation with the bat family or Superman or any other member of the rest of the DCU...
