I was still too hung up on the stupid “he’s stuck in the past” to see this fallacy.
What I’M hung up about is this: is Bruce just making pit-stops at EVERY family painting region in time and space? I mean, unless DC wants to deal with some REALLY in-depth time travel, it makes no sense.
I’d like to imagine every Generation of Waynes up until Bruce got together after they’d all hit sexual maturity and Highlander’d it out over who got to reproduce.
Wait does that mean that Bruce is also Tomas Wayne?
I’M MY OWN FATHER… AND GREAT GRAND FATHER… AND GREAT GREAT… Oh heck you get the idea…
This was really supposed to be a reply to Bryy…
No he isn’t Thomas Wayne, but he does meet him near the end of the Return of Bruce Wayne story arc….after his parents are suppose to be dead.
He’s *a* Thomas Wayne, but not Thomas Wayne, Bruce’s father. He’s a dude from like Puritan times who made a pact with the devil to live forever. Or something.
insane clown posse really? I didn’t think you could sink that low. Either that or you’re hanging out on 4chan a bit to much. lol
what, can’t people like other things in their life besides what you like?
and i did not get that painting until you pointed it out. i thought he was a mime at first.
Willis, Violent J has a small black circle on his nose.. best to retcon this one or others may be misled by “random-juggalo-fan”
Just because it’s in the comic doesn’t mean he’s a fan of it.
Fascinating how Willis’ Damian is more attentive than the comic one.
And I like how Dick is basically “Don’t ask me, I’m the just a circus kid. Alfred?”
“Fuck if I know… sir.”
That’s the beauty of superhero comics; you can create a history of characters that never existed and create a compelling story with it.
Nevermind the fact that any Batman nerd worth his salt know Bruce has other family members besides Damien here: Silas, Phillip, Agatha, great uncle Lord Elwood, cousin Jane, cousin Vanderveer, cousin Bruce N., etc.
But I’m sure you knew this, right?
OMG a freaky asian guy eating something is one of the pictures.
Shut up, Robin. There is no place for you and your logic here.
Ha. Never thought I’d have to say that.
I swear the painting thing makes sense in some Grant Morrison way, you may need to read return of bruce wayne a few times, but I swear it makes sense, I just can’t explain it myself
Just to say it, since I’m sure that everyone who is going to has probably read it by now, these questions and many others were answered in the penultimate issue of Return of Bruce Wayne…. sort of…. kind of… maybe, a little? Actually it raised a lot more questions than it answered. The non-spolery current backstory about Batman’s extended family is this; Thomas Wayne was an only child, and his parents died before Bruce was born (they were possibly murdered by a Bat-Demon Cult), Martha Wayne was also an only child, but parents were still around after Bruce’s parents were killed but they were really old (like in their 80′s and his grandfather was basically a vegetable on life support), there is some question as to why Alfred got custody of Bruce in his parents’ will (Bruce apparently had, at the time his parents died anyway, several adult cousins who were willing to take him in) this ties into a meta-storyarc across the whole Morrison run where it is heavily implied that Martha Wayne and Alfred were screwing around and Alfred could be Bruce’s real father (Alfred has denied this several times, but Bruce’s grandmother said she thought this was probably true).
As for the paintings… Honestly, after the Magic Box o’ Stuff in Wayne Manor’s Secret Bat-Demon Summoning Chamber was introduced I stopped worrying about how little sense the paintings made.
I’m pretty sure Bruce did have a couple of brothers, very early on in the comics. Not sure what happened to them.
