Batman RIP by YogurthFrost Batman RIP by YogurthFrost

Bruce Wayne: R.I.P.


It had to happen sooner or later. Sure, superheroes die and come back all the time in comics. But sooner or later a final exit must occur. Yet what would be the most fitting end for The Batman?


Should he go out heroically in a climactic battle with an arch-foe? Ironically by some random thug who happens to get lucky? Tragically by an alien overlord?


But after seeing the Batman Beyond series, and the Justice League Unlimited episode "Epilogue", it was clear to me that the death Batman deserves is the one he never would have expected.


To go peacefully, in his sleep, surrounded by those who love him.


Thanks to Yogurth for doing this for me.


And for those who don't know, the people in this pic are (from left to right)
Timothy Drake (formerly Robin)
Barbara Gordon (formerly Batgirl, now Police Commissioner)
Dick Greyson (Nightwing)
Terry McGinnis (the new Batman and, genetically, Bruce Wayne's son)
Dana McGinnis (Terry's wife) with their son Thomas Wayne McGinnis (named for his great-grandfather)

From Wikipedia:

"The Justice League Unlimited episode "Epilogue" reveals that Terry is Bruce's biological son due to Amanda Waller's "Batman Beyond" project. The project caused Warren McGinnis to have his reproductive DNA re-written into an exact copy of Bruce's when he went in for what he thought was a flu shot; this would make Bruce the biological father of Terry and his younger brother Matt McGinnis, even though they were born to Warren and Mary McGinnis. Waller even hired assassin Andrea Beaumont", AKA: The Phantasm, one of Bruce Wayne's many past lovers, and ordered her to kill Warren and Mary as they were coming out of a movie theater with their son, hoping to recreate the same psychological trauma that resulted in Bruce becoming Batman within Terry, but at the last minute Beaumont abandoned the job, refusing to subject an innocent child to the same tragedy that consumed Bruce's life under the stern belief that it would go against everything Bruce stood for (but in the end, Warren's death at the hands of a criminal still occurred, thus cementing Terry's destiny as the next Batman)."

Such a sad occasion. Well, we all got to leave this world someday. I wonder who will  Bruce Wayne will leave his fortune to. But that is a well told story and a well drawn picture.  I hope that Mr. Wayne a.k.a. Batman finds peace.

Nobody can be father with less 18 years old
Bruce adopts Dick, but they age difference are 18-19, to be father and son

But at the end he apologized, came back to see Bruce and helped him out when he couldn't open his medication. And at the end Bruce said "You're a stubborn piece of work, you know that?" Terry then responded with "...Just like my old man." at the end of the episode we here the "Industrial Rock" version of Danny Elfman's Batman theme.

lol at Dick still being in his Nightwing outfit, You'd think he'd retire around the sametime Bruce did let alone the fact that Bruce was only active as Terry's mentor/supervisor. *smh* really like this picture though, especially Dana and Terry's baby.

Batman should never die.

 

He cracks after the Joker finally pushes him far enough to kill him (Frank Miller, thank you for that gem). He builds his bat army from the leftover "Mutant" forces and convinces the Justice league to help him take down Ra's once and for all.

 

The battle ranges accross the planet as one by one the enemies of the Justice league are swept away in the all out war to follow. Every enemy they face is backed into a corner. Every enemy leaving them no choice but to eliminate them once and for all. The story builds to a head in Ra's secret fortress above the fountain of youth. Through the dark recesses of those tunnels the Justice league is mortally wounded one by one. Only Batman and Superman are able to finally reach the bottom level.

 

While walking through the tunnel to the chamber where the bubbling cauldron of immortality is located Batman tells superman to procede ahead. He is getting sore in his old age.

 

Superman enters the room. Ra's, mortally wounded yet unbroken, stands before the bubbling cauldron of immortality.

 

Superman "It's over Ra's, give up."

 

Ra's "This is what was meant to be. I haven't failed. This is my triumph!"

 

Superman "You cannot win. Your forces are broken and you are wounded. Good will always triumph Ra's."

Ra's "You fool. I was once the teacher. But my pupil has surpassed me. Surpassed even you!" he pulls out a small crossbow with a kryptonite bolt and points it at superman but superman blasts it with his laser vision.

 

A moment of confusion glimmers in Supermans eyes. "what could he have meant by that?" He realizes where he is. Realizes what lies before him. He realizes too late. His confusion is contorted by pain as a glimmering shard of kryptonite explodes from his chest.

 

Superman collapses to his knees. He coughs up blood and looks over his shoulder the pain stricken look on his face telling so much more than physical pain... the pain of betrayal. "Why Bruce?"

 

"Because it must be done."

 

As supermans last bits of strength fades from his body he watches as Batman strides forward into the chamber. Stepping over the now dead Ra's as he strides into the pool. Everything went perfectly.With his enemies consumed and the Justice League immaciated no one will be able to stand between him and his quest for true justice.

 

Enter the Avengers crossover series.

Bruce Wayne may die, but the Batman can never die, because the Batman is a symbol of justice, and symbols...are immortal.

Awesome pic. I think I've said so before, but really, just awesome.
