Morrison thinks Bruce Wayne's return might be a disaster

With the way things have been going, I wouldn't be surprised. In this fluff-coated article in the Colorado Springs Gazette, they say:
Bruce Wayne — the original Batman — is coming back.

And that may not be a good thing.

“The return of Bruce Wayne is not necessarily something we should all be looking forward to,” writer Grant Morrison says. “In fact, it may be a deadly and disastrous event.”
I'm pretty sure it won't be very interesting, that's for sure. And judging from recent sales numbers, not many may be looking forward to it anyway.
The miniseries will follow Batman as he jumps through different periods in time — and different genres. So look for caveman, pirate and Western tales, among others, as Batman fights to survive.

“This optimum man, this fantastic specimen, what happens when he’s plunged back into the past without any of his equipment, without his suit, without even his memory?” Morrison asks.
Answer: it results in a mind-boggling story too silly for words.
What happens to that team after “The Return of Bruce Wayne” remains a secret, but Morrison assures that the status quo will be changing yet again.

“We obviously didn’t want to bring things back to exactly the same way that it had been before, so I’ve kind of come up with a take on it that I’m quite pleased with. We’re going to do a completely different take on the whole Batman concept.”
One that I'm sure won't be worth the price of admission. What could happen is: either Bruce Wayne won't return to his role as Batman, and go into semi-retirement like Steve Rogers as Capt. America (now that I think of it, his recent story is very similar, showing the problem both companies have of competing with each other's story ideas), or, the stories to follow will be just too dreadful to bother about. The latter possibility is certainly likely to happen.

Is DC the only big corporation that doesn't conduct drug tests on employees?

Once again, drug fiend Morrison proves he is a front-runner for the most pretenious writer in COMIC BOOKS today.

"Is DC the only big corporation that doesn't conduct drug tests on employees?"

So, that explains Dan Didio getting hired.

"what happens when he’s plunged back into the past without any of his equipment, without his suit, without even his memory?”

Sounds like Morrison on Friday nights.

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.
