Bruce Wayne Makes Big Batman Announcement In ‘Batman and Robin #16’
  |  

With the grand finale of Grant Morrison‘s epic run on DC Comics’ Batman and Robin, along comes the birth of a brand new status quo in the DC Universe, and if you haven’t read Batman and Robin #16, which came out today, go get the issue, read it, and come back, because SPOILERS

In the issue, Bruce Wayne holds a press conference where he reveals that he is the main funding officer for The Dark Knight.

Although, some mainstream media used headlines and stories to make it appear as though Bruce Wayne declared himself as The Batman, he simply said that he had been secretly supporting and funding his technology, as well as creating a new division of Wayne enterprises called Batman, Incorporated, which just so happens to be the title for the upcoming Grant Morrison Batman comic.

The dark events from Grant Morrison’s epic run in the Batman universe culminates with Batman and Robin #16 in which all of the questions posed since The Black Glove storyline were answered.

This is a big step for The Caped Crusader.

  4. When I read this the first thing I thought of was that Bruce Wayne was turning into Tony Stark… I guess I was not alone.

  5. What is worse is this is the second time DC has used the Iron Man ploy this year…

    In Smallville, Oliver Queen gave a press conference that he is Green Arrow.. can DC come up with anything new…

    As much as I love Batman and Superman, these comics have seen their good times and bad times, it is time to put them to bed already…70 years now..time to retire and start a new golden age of comics.
