Bruce Wayne (1939-2009)


*I mean in fiction, not any beloved actors.

I think it’s time to dust off “Baruch Wane”…

Not a bad idea — Ron Paul’s official favorite superhero, at least according to the answer his office gave to a survey on that topic — and a character created by an acquaintance of mine.

One thought on Bruce (for those who have already read the relevant stories or who don’t care about spoilers): given that his eventual return is inevitable, I thought it was sort of clever that instead of giving us just one “possible” means of bringing him back and asking us to pretend we’re worried, writer Grant Morrison has given us more possible ways to resurrect Bruce than you can shake a stick at, without making it clear which it’ll be: Cloning? Divine powers? Time travel? Alternate universe? Toughing out the Omega Beam’s power of inducing (as Newsarama put it) successive crappier lives?

Maybe we’ll end up with six or seven of him by the time we’re through (not counting his dozen or so replacements in the impending “Battle for the Cowl” storyline).
