Man, Batman’s never been the same since he stopped using guns back a few decades ago.
you mean Batman hasn’t been the same since 1938?
So…Captain America’s death was Marvel trying to beat DC in the stupid, ill-conceived, out-of-character-death department?
Remember my comment from last comic? Well, I REALLY take it back now. All of your characters have gone out with good characterization and as much dignity as they were ever given in the past. That’s more than most comic characters get when they die.
So thanks, Willis. I think maybe the fact that certain deaths were tear-worthy and ate at me inside were the highest compliment I can pay them. You’re awesome.
This is very true. Willis did a remarkable thing, in that he established that resurrection was possible (albeit difficult) in his universe, but every character death still carried a huge emotional impact.
To be fair, he’s the only writer on a series that is plotted out years in advance, if not in entirety to some extent, rather than one of hundreds of writers on a 70-year-old corporate franchise. It makes sense that his deaths are well-planned and well-written. Not to lessen that accomplishment in any way, of course, they’re just very different mediums (media?) of storytelling.
FYI, Epilogue is the only JLU episode I know by name and it’s because Batman shows once again the lighter side of his character in a tear jerking way. ;_;
What if Batman’s not dead, but went gardening?
I’m batman….tending to my roses of justice
