I'm fine with this. Honestly there was really no other way I saw this ending. Especially if you've read Morrison's entire body of bat work up til now. I trust Morrison to properly send kiddo off and personally I've never found spoilers to ruin a story for me. People really ought to stop throwing HOEmotional bitch fits about it. It's the world we will in now. Deal with it or stay off of forums/news sites. Anyways, it's all about the journey not the destination.
@DeadPan: Im not even going to bother commenting on the rest of your rant but Batman Inc DOES take place in the current DC universe. Batman and Robin has referenced the bounty on Robin and the latest Batman and Robin solicit specifically mentions that it will be dealing with fallout from Batman Incorporated.
Plus in Inc. #1 Damian killing NoBody is referenced explicitly.
I wouldn't say it's dead mainstream. People are acting as if Hip-Hop started in the 80s as some deep revolutionary music and that in the 90s there was no wack rappers.
Only difference is its hard for an artist to be deep and be successful mainstream nowadays.
A-Mo' Flushin'-Man, folk! Cats actin' like the golden era ONLY produced classics...FOH with that babbage. Overall I'm quite happy with where Hip-Hop is right now. The music is diverse and every niche has some level of representation on the mainstream level.
