Yea..I know it has been rumored but I figured more on his retiring than actually being killed off. I figure it will last around a year and Bruce will be back. Dick Grayson will be Bats.....that's the only one anyone would accept any way. Yes he didn't like it the first time around but I think he would do it now.
I am still pissed they killed Bruce though.....arggghhhh!
