Today’s To Do List: Kill Off Batman

Exclusive Illustration: How Batman May Get Killed Off By Robin...

In today’s issue of Batman it seems that after 70 years of good faith our trusty sidekick Robin will go over to “the dark side” and knock off poor Bruce Wayne. Well at least that’s the rumor we’ve been hearing — but it seems that in this latest issue the dark knight will meet with some sort of ultimate demise:

Batman to be killed off after 70 years
Batman is to be killed off after 70 years, the comic’s writer has revealed.

“‘Batman RIP’ will see “the end of Bruce Wayne as Batman”, according to Grant Morrison. “What I am doing is a fate worse than death, things that no one would expect to happen to these guys at all,” Mr Morrison told Comic Book Resources. Mr Morrison, the Scottish writer, has written storylines for comics including X-Men for Marvel and Superman for DC Comics. He took over writing the Batman series for DC in 2006.”

Frankly I think this is a dumb idea — this sort of thing always creates a buzz in the press for a day or two but never adds any new comic book readers along the way (although it may make collectors jump with joy).
