we all remember the "death in the family" storyline and it doesn't matter what you say we all get a bit emotional when we see batman holding jason's body.

so i'm asking what bat family member would you kill off next?

this'll be an interesting thread and probably result in many people not liking other's choices.

so get ready.

see what i mean?

Well, I think Jason should have permanently been killed, and only brought back for Under the Red Hood. I didn't like him post-Under.

I think it would be interesting if Dick was killed off for a year or two. Maybe it could be done to him what has been done to Batman in Scott Snyder's series.

it'd be interesting to see how the other robins would react

Not seeing the Tim hate i expected. Anyway havent two memebers of the Bat-family been killed or retconned or is just no word on them in "New 52" i.e. Stephanie and Cassandra. Anyway I say off with Damian's head just becase I dont really see his character needed

I wouldn't kill Barbara but I would rip her legs off in a way so vicious they could never be restored even with robotics, if she died in the process......well I'm willing to take that risk. If I have to kill someone off it would be Batwoman 1. because I've read very little with her in it and she's the only member of the Bat family I have absolutely no connection to, she seems cool but frankly I have a stronger connection to Titus. and 2 if I can't rip Barbara's legs off and make her be Oracle again she could at least step it up to Batwoman instead of Batgirl

Batwoman. Not because she's lesbian, but because she's just not on the same degree as the other Bat-Family members in my opinion.

The Joker breaks into your house one night and wakes you up by throwing a gun on your stomach, when you sit up all the Bat Family members are strapped together by a giant bomb. The Joker says either you shoot one of them or he blows them up and takes out you entire neighborhood. He is not bluffing, it's not a joke, what do you do.

If I had to kill anyone in the Bat-family, that's not the dog, it'd Barbara. At the moment, I find her to be the least entertaining of the family, and we didn't need her as Batgirl again.

LOL, I'm feeling it. It's time to bring back Oracle!

Everyone except Stephanie Brown, cause 1. She already died and 2. I hate the Bat Family, why, because I can.

I wouldnt mind seeing Damian Wayne getting bumped off. We already have the trained killer and all around badass in the batman family.

#12 Posted by royale_with_cheese (747 posts) - - Show Bio

Batwing or Batwoman, preferably both. They have never been integral to Batman's history, nor will they ever.

Batman, I have no problem with the character, I'd just love to see the reactions of the fan boys

@sinestro_GL: I'm not sure since I think all of the characters have been confirmed to survive on the solicits, but it'd be interseting

Honestly, I've had no problem with any of the Bat-family although I'd prefer Barbara returning to her position as Oracle.

Jason. He's basically outlived his usefulness as a character.

Can we kill both Damian and Jason? If I had to have one or the other go...well, Jason it is. Never cared for the character.

When I glanced at the post title, I read "what family member would you kill off?" When I finally saw the word "bat," I was a lot less horrified.

Bruce Wayne. He's set up Batman Inc, and Dick has proven himself as a worthy successor to the cowl in my eyes. Everyone else has some sorta established role in the Bat-mythos (Steph should still be in Britain and Cass in Hong Kong, right?) Plus, some sense of progression would be nice. He doesn't have to die for that to happen, but if one member of the Batfamily has to die, imo it's him. Probably won't happen, but that point seems irrelevant to this discussion.

Actually I am agree with you...

Stephanie Brown :)

Damian, then either leave him dead or put him in a Lazarus Pit Nd turn him into a Tim Drake villain.

This. He did that when he first died.

All of that is non-canon now, and Dick wasn't really a worthy successor. Bruce had to come back and save the entire Universe from the Hunter-Killer. The whole point of Batman Inc was to have Batmen for smaller areas, while Bruce could protect the world.

But I still having the feeling that Bruce have to die, I don't feel that the Bat-family members could grow more as character until Batman dies, I don't like Batman as a man, but an immortal idea of justice and fear, like the Phantom.

Actually I found my choice a bit too hard because I realised I like most of the bat-people.

So my choice of Black Canary wasn't because I don't like the character ( I do like Black canary) but because it'd make an interesting story.

#37 Posted by Joygirl (19925 posts) - - Show Bio

Damian first, Barbara second (maiming her legs works too). I would definitely keep Batwoman, I absolutely adore her. She may be my favorite under Bruce.

Batman? Die? *Tear streeks down face*

If Bruce Wayne dies I want to see Deathstroke try and take out the rest of the Bat-clan for revenge/fun/pay.

Damian Wayne, it's been a while since when got a good old fashion robin beating, we were teased with one but it was incomplete, and I felt empty inside.

#49 Posted by Black Lantern Mar-vell (2040 posts) - - Show Bio

JUST ONE? Nope, can't decide. Just gonna have to kill all of them, EXCEPT Batman, Nightwing, Tim(Red) Robin, & Barbara. That gives us Batman, Nightwing, Robin(drop the Red), & a Batgirl. That's more then enough! Trim the fat!
