Re: The Return of Bruce Wayne in April!

Personally I don't mind if they do something crazy with the main Batman books, I like solo Batman stories (which usually means stories set early in his career) free of all the baggage in the current books. They can do whatever they want, I'll just happily be reading Batman: Earth One.

On Bruce returning, I just hope it doesn't mean they're already kicking Dick to the curb. Bruce can come back in a different role than Batman, though; we'll just have to wait and see.
My theory, which I expound upon here, is that Dick will remain Batman, but Bruce will become Robin. It's a logical outgrowth of the events of The Resurrection of Ra's al-Ghul; we know that Damian's body can host the spirit of one of his ancestors. Ra's tried to take Damian's body, but what if Damian willingly gave up his body to "host" the father he idolizes? Morrison said that when his story was all said and done, Bruce Wayne would never be Batman again. If Bruce becomes Damian, then that's absolutely true.
I have a heard time believing that, but jeez ... I hope you're right. I just adore that idea. I mean seriously. I adore it.

How are they going to get around what happened (is happening) in Blackest Night?

Re: The Return of Bruce Wayne in April!

Well Brucie's physical corpse was left behind in Final Crisis, then buried, then played with by Black Hand. It's Bruce's katra that's stuck in the past, right? So where did that body come from?

Re: The Return of Bruce Wayne in April!

I don't think that Bruce is inhabiting people he's relating to...I think he's physically being thrust through the time stream. For some reason I can't get Terry MgGuiness out of my head.

Re: The Return of Bruce Wayne in April!

I can't remember what happened to Dick Grayson in the future of 'Batman Beyond', or if it was ever mentioned. Anyone remember?

But as a fan of 'Batman Beyond', I would like to see some form of that future come to pass.

I think that the only time he was ever mentioned was during the episode "A Touch of Curare". There it was implied that Dick was still alive and still active in the hero biz (the assumption being his role as Nightwing).

Re: The Return of Bruce Wayne in April!

I have not been buying Batman or Detective Comics lately. I'm not interested in Dick Grayson dressed up as Batman; Grayson just isn't the real deal. I'm using Wayne's absence from the DCU as a convenient break from all the BATMAN titles. While Wayne's gone I plan to catch up on his most recent major story arcs. I still need to read The Resurrection of Ra's Al Ghul and Batman: R.I.P. I should be caught up by April when Wayne returns.

Re: The Return of Bruce Wayne in April!

Batman and Robin has been tremendous so far, I've been flipping through them at the comic shop and am getting the Hardcover in April. The dynamic between Dick and Damien is great. I'm enjoying Dick's role as Batman this time around and looking forward to picking up World's Finest#4 when he and Commander Kal-El have a team up.

I believe that Dick and Bruce's relationship is severely strained in Batman Beyond...especially by the time of the JLU episode Epilogue. In fact I've read fan theories that they're relationship is strained because of an implied fling Bruce had with Barbara at some point after The New Adventures of Batman and Robin and prior to Justice League.

I'd say the Bruce-Babs relationship in the DCAU is more than just implied -- they're pretty clearly an item in the Mystery of the Batwoman DVD movie.

I thought Batwoman played for the other team, as it were?

DC has announced The Return of Bruce Wayne mini starting in April...written by Grant Morrison alongside 'a host of all star artists' Morrison calls this the 'definitive Batman epic'. Wow there really have been a ton of announcements this week, and we're not done yet. Here's the link with sample art:

Grant Morrison is still an idiot.

Re: The Return of Bruce Wayne in April!

Well Bruce could still return as a superhero... just not as Batman. I mean let's be honest, after all he could just pass the torch to Dick and Damien. And be more the Dark Knight or something. I'd think after getting bounced through time and space essentially, he'd want a break... or would take on a more... mythological role.

I mean Dick's great with the more down to Earth, Gotham based stuff... while I think Bruce has evolved to be a more... galactic level super-hero. I mean this is a guy who used to hang with the big guns of the DCU. Fuckin' shot Darkseid! This is not the same Batman who prowls rooftops and schtup's Catwomen.

It's never confirmed that body is Batman, notice how Blackhand says thanks "Batman" in Blackest Night 5, signalling to the reader that this is not the body of the Bruce Wayne.
