Meltdown Comics presents History of the Batman with Londyn! – Episode 33: Batman’s Many Deaths in DC Comics
It’s a common practice in comic book tales that a character dies and then, by some miracle, is resurrected. Looking at Batman’s incredible 76 year history, many of the Batman Family members have died and come back to life, sometimes even by surprising the audience. In recent New 52 comics, Bruce Wayne’s Batman apparently died alongside the Joker and now another is the Dark Knight of Gotham City. But this isn’t the first or even second time that Batman has died in DC Comics. In this week’s podcast, Londyn and co-host Adam Silverstein will look at ten different times our hero has died or has seemingly died in comic books in the last 76 years of Pre-New 52 continuity. The Batman represents the ultimate human, with peak physical and mental capacities yet he still has emotions and flaws. This list will demonstrate that even this dark vigilante cannot hide forever from his own humanity or from the glooming shadow of the Grim Reaper.
