Batman's "death" doesn't and won't have an impact

The Penn. Express-Times fawns over Final Crisis, taking the usual this-is-oh-so-great approach:
It took one of the greatest and most powerful of DC's villains to kill the dark knight.

Come on, we all know DC can't and won't keep Bruce Wayne dead forever.
Writer Grant Morrison's epic comic book event started slow, but in the last two issues it has really come together to be a worth the hype.
Sure it has. Not when it trumps real, stand-alone storytelling, I don't think.
There is no doubt that the hero will be brought back, but his death will still be felt across the DC universe for months to come.
But not by the readership. Whether or not Bruce comes back, I can't bring myself to care anymore, because this is all they're interested in now, in deaths for the sake of publicity. That's why his "defeat" at the hands of Darkseid doesn't make an impact on me either.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
