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)

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

Awwwwww I feel sad looking at at this. :(

But saying that Terry is a good Batman successor though.

Sad indeed. But I'm also glad to hear that Barbara became the new police commissioner (like her dear ol' dad) and Terry manned up and got married and wanting to honor Bruce and his family.

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.

I believe Batman's last words should be "Bring me my mask!"
