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)

Great artwork! I believe that he passes away just for natural causes, because nobody, no one, can kill Batman.

A good way to go I say, and through the peace he would awaken, perhaps he would thought he deserved help no? But what if he awoken in heaven, would he still look old or would he look younger? To turn and see his parents awaiting as he smiled and takes their hand knowing his time has end.

I would fucking cry if this was the final episodr of Batman Beyond. It was good to have a Waller talk to Terry about it in JLU. Good times.

I bet Bruce's words before he closed his eyes for the last time was something along the lines of:

"Terry, my mission is finally over. Now is the beginning of your mission."

Nice, a very touching piece. I like that Terry and Dana named their son Thomas. It is really too bad this series didn't go longer.

Couldn't be helped. Even the greatest of superheroes has to die eventually. Especially of Natural Causes.
Bruce Wayne AKA Batman will never be forgotten.
But great drawing though😰😄

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.

He wouldn't be Nightwing. In the comics, Richard helps out Terry in missions. This is how Richard looks:

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.
