What really happened to Bruce Wayne between R.I.P. and The Return of Bruce Wayne?  We’ve seen Final Crisis, sure, and we know what Neil Gaiman did with his Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader, but with this week’s release of Batman #701, Grant Morrison gives us the “real” answer.

    I really, really dislike Grant Morrison. I really wish he’d quit having to have his way with Batman.

    “Yes, I know what those other writers did. But, they’re not me. I’m Grant Morrison. Unless I say it happened, it probably didn’t. I’m going to explain to you what really happened and you’ll have to read unfindable back issues of books that I wrote 15 years ago in order to understand what I mean …”

    I kind of chuckled at the title: RIP – The missing chapter… which kind of acknowledges the fact that there were gaps in the story. The art looks cool, but personally I’m more interested in “The Return Home”.

    “untold tale”… I believe the correct words are “huge plothole”

    You know when this would have been great?
    BETWEEN RIP AND FINAL CRISIS.
    Maybe time-travelling Bruce Wayne can stop in at DC on his way back to the present and solicit this ON TIME.
    Until then, count me out.

    Sadly I can’t keep up with DC or well much of anything else really, I just can’t afford so many comics every week to keep up. I’m basically lost from about right before Identity Crisis or was it Infinite Crisis up to current.

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
