@batz and monkeyballs

@rebelliom

I was thinking that might be it as well but I don't think of huge chunk of comic fans would think of it that way.

I'm inclined to think Alfred dies. It sounds crazy, but hey with everything that's happened has been crazy

PLEASE tell me they're killing Damian and replacing him with Harper Row. Frankly, I am sick of Damian Wayne. He was a fun character for a little while, but now he's just become grating and annoying.

If they could bring Tim Drake back as Robin, I'd much rather see that, but since Scott Lobdell called "dibs" on Drake and has pretty much been systematically screwing up his history, Harper seems like the only other logical option.

(Seriously, though, if the Joker successfully killed Batman's son? Holy CRAP, that would be huge! But I have a feeling that if they get rid of Damian, they're going to do it in Batman Incorporated-- because Grant-f%$#ing-Morrison would shit a brick if anyone else dared to mess with a character he's writing at the time...)

I think i would be better if Joker would actually kill Alfred. I mean Alfred is a father figure to Bruce and that would just be devastating if they would kill him off but a great story!!!

@ Bandido

no mate,is it part of the "death of the family" storyline.i've got them batman issues to read.
maxxgone - 12/5/2012, 3:51 PM
@Goill & all

do you think it could be alfred? someone said damien, but i dont think he'd be as devastating. but now as i'm writing this, im changing my mind on damien. follow me on this theory:

if they do in fact have the joker kill damien, that easily opens the 'lazarus pit' option from talia & ra's. so if they did that, upon damien's return from the dead, he'd be mentally unstable & go after bruce for allowing him to die (kinda like jason todd) plus there's a million other ways that could all go down. do you think this is the way they're headed?

at first i thought taking damien out wouldn't be that big of a deal, but now i'm thinking on all the angles they could go in the aftermath & that seems pretty plausible. could set up a years worth of storytelling.

i'm not sure how snyder's planned riddler story would fit into all of that, but it's a thought. what do you guys think?
DrRockit13 - 12/5/2012, 5:09 PM
the tragedy will be the ending of death of the family and they can't say anything about it so they are still keeping it a secret. They are all going to die except for batman.
DrRockit13 - 12/5/2012, 5:09 PM
or maybe just Alfred
Wildaniel - 12/5/2012, 5:10 PM
I liked Harper Row!
WesleyGibson - 12/5/2012, 9:55 PM
