Batman Without Bruce

DC have just announced that Bruce Wayne will no longer be Batman. Obviously this is huge, but on the surface, what are the initial implications of this?

  • Lets not forget, Dick Grayson was Batman for a while in the comics. So is someone replacing Batman, or is Bruce Wayne just going into retirement? – Aaron Hatch 9 years ago
  • Must admit to a certain amount of fatigue with the comic industry's "radical change" announcements; they never "stick". Superman died; came back. Batman's back was broken; got fixed. This is one of the biggest problem with ongoing, serial franchises: you can't make and keep real changes. Maybe an approach to this topic could include the struggle against that kind of reader fatigue. – Monique 9 years ago
