I hate Batman. I've made no secret of that. I find him to be OVERLY represented in DCUO and media almost to the exclusion of ALL other DC Comics heroes. What makes it worse is how incredibly BORING Batman is. Batman USED to have mystery about him. Questions persisted about him that the good people of DC Comics in decades past never bothered to answer. Because they knew the answers would kill the majesty of Batman - his mythos. The questions were more important. Just write the stories and let them flow with as little detail as possible but KEEP the mystery alive. Batman no longer has any mystery. Not even to small children anymore. Batman is more of a fashion accessory today than a hero. I find this all so VERY sad. And it makes me nostalgic for what is, always has been and I wager always will be my all time favorite Batman story ever published - the death of the original Batman as told in the pagers of Adventure Comics #461 - 463. I still remember the disbelief I felt when I first read those comics more than 40 years ago when they were first published. "How could they kill the original Batman!?!" I thought. But it didn't change the fact that DC Comics did. And they made NO apologies for it. They killed him in the most perfect way possible (I think) and moved on with life. They never went back to revisit his death, never teased that he might not actually BE dead - Nope! Those AWESOME and outstanding people in charge of DC Comics in the late 1970's just went ahead with killing the original Batman - PERMANENTLY - and moved on - just like life. It was shocking and awe inspiring at the same time. And it showed that DC Comics had some ***** and weren't afraid to use them. I admit I was disappointed that they didn't give the original Robin and Batman's daughter The Huntress their own comic - stand alone or as a series in Adventure Comics - but when they showed up from time to time in the pages of The Justice League of America's annual meetings it was nice to see that they clearly had stories after his death even if they never told them. I know you can purchase digital copies of these Adventure Comics on Google Play for $2 each but they are only available in black & white if anyone is interested in reading this excellent story. That's it. I'm done. Thank you.
