The philosophy of Batman
Supergenius, Grant Morrison is set to kill off the Batman. While I regret to point out (the blindingly obvious point) this "fate worse than death" cannot possibly be a permanent feature of the DC continuity, the news has already lead me to some interesting fan rumination.
I confess I had never thought of Bruce Wayne as a Thelemic Superman but I do like the sound of the idea.
Reminder: Middle class Batman.

I really wish people would quit screwing about with my childhood and remaking and "rebooting" TV shows and pop culture. Seriously. Come up with your own ideas people.
Why does this new generation of writers find it necessary to destroy the edifice created by those that came before them to prove their "creativity"?
I'm reminded of something C.S. Lewis said to the effect that, the Enemy can create nothing of his own, merely pervert the works of the Creator and twist them into his own foul image.
(Laughs out loud.)
Batman? Newf, er, noob.
Not even Superboy could beat Superman. And Superboy can kick Batman's butt.
