Maybe they'll time the return of Bruce with the release of the next Bat-Movie.

Re: The Return of Bruce Wayne Disucssion (Spoilers)

Bruce will be back as Batman. That's pretty much a done deal. That being said I'd really like to see Grayson play the role for a year or so. It's been a really interesting ride so far, and I think the momentum is enough that they could easily keep this going for another year or so.

It's funny. I went by a DC comics forum not too long ago to see some of the reactions. Most fans seem to be really enjoying this whole thing, but the ones who didn't like the storyline had some pretty hilarious posts going.

Morrison's Batman and Robin has twelve issues planned; either in the tail end of that, or when it's over, I'd expect to see him come back.

Re: The Return of Bruce Wayne Disucssion (Spoilers)

April is the date for the release of the hardcover...it's listed already for pre-order on Amazon.com I already placed my order. I know that Bruce IS coming back, my question is when and how. I'd like Tim to find him as I suggested through resources provided by him through Ra's. Tim experiences a kind of obession over the sudden loss of his adoptive father and seems to not be handling it very well and Bruce comes back to help him or something. I'm actually curious as to what kind of interest Ra's has in Tim. Maybe sees him as a new potential heir.

It's possible. But that's only the end of Morrison's third "book." There's still two more to go after Batman and Robin.

The new Batman and Robin series has been a lot of fun.

Although I admit, with Batman's populartiy at an all-time high after The Dark Knight last year, I found it puzzling as to why they decided to "kill off" Bruce Wayne.

BATMAN AND ROBIN has been surprisingly good. But, of course, the second issue was 7 weeks ago and the third still isn't out, because Frank Quitely can't be counted on to produce a monthly book on a monthly basis.

Perhaps to gain more publicity and sell more books. It's not like Bruce has been removed from all media anyway. I'm curious to know if DC actually did sell more Bat books because of Batman's 'demise'.

Re: The Return of Bruce Wayne Disucssion (Spoilers)

Issue Three is coming out next week...I forgot who's going to be the artist on the next three issue arc. I think the twelve issues are being broken down into three issues each.

Apparently most of Batman RIP (issues 676-683) did sell at high rates, though the first part somewhat better than the last two issues. Then Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader (#686) knocked 'em all out of the park.

I have a feeling, like many, Bruce Wayne's return will tie in with the first showings of Batman 3.

Well, it certainly got some decent publicity.

I went back and got the trades for Batman & Son (Interlibrary Loan, no less!), The Resurrection of Ra's Al Ghul, The Black Glove and then RIP (which comes in a lovely Hardcover deluxe version). I still don't understand RIP and all the metaphorical *cough*nonsense*cough*. I must be dense or something.

But I just got the notification that my friendly neighborhood library has Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader on hold! Yippee!! Hopefully this is understandable by me.

Re: The Return of Bruce Wayne Disucssion (Spoilers)

Well I always did like the idea that Dick WOULD become Batman in a lasting sense eventually. And even if Bruce comes back, I wouldn't even mind seeing him create a new identity or just do a Tony Stark and say "to hell with it... I WAS the Batman!" and just be Dick's mentor/money man.

Heh... that's a wrong wording... makes Bruce sound like a Suger Daddy...

Re: The Return of Bruce Wayne Disucssion (Spoilers)

Well, the deal with Bruce is that he's supposed to be obsessed, he can't help himself, otherwise he would have passed it off to Dick years ago voluntarily and shacked up with Vicki or Selena or someone and spent the rest of his life and billions living it up and providing funding for the Justice League.

It's hardwired into him that he has this compulsion to dress up and kick butt, the same way most of us have a compulsion to undress and screw butt.

He doesn't have a choice, that's why he's the Batman. So unless the current arc gives him some electroshock therapy to the brain and he has a personality makeover it wouldn't be Bruce Wayne, it would be some contrived plotline pasted in.
