So what exactly is happening to Bruce right now? (I've been out of touch for awhile.) I'm a bit unclear about this 'endless cycle' business...
Batman got hit by the Omega Sanction in Final Crisis, which was a concept that Grant Morrison introduced in his Seven Soldiers: Mr. Miracle miniseries. Basically, when Darkseid uses it on you, you are placed in an endless cycle of death and rebirth, with each new life being shittier than the previous one. It's possible to escape from this; Shiloh Norman did, since he's Mr. Miracle, escaping from stuff is his specialty.
