Batman RIP by YogurthFrost Batman RIP by YogurthFrost
This belongs to Taigan :icontaigan: ...I just help a little


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)

Ik, I remember from Justice League the epilogue. That was a touching episode, but he was a real jerk to Bruce. I mean he just walked away when Bruce was having A HEART ATTACK!!! DX

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.

Oh yeah, that's right. I guess I'm just jealous. Embarrased 

It would be so cool to have BATMAN as a dad right? XD

I can just imagine Thomas calling Bruce grandpa, and Bruce crying a little because he never expected to live long enough to hear that.
