Death Of The Dark Knight?

BATMAN is set to be killed off after 70 years of crime-fighting - in the comic book which created the cartoon superhero.
Rumours are rife that in the next issue of DC Comics' Batman, published on Thursday (27Nov08), Bruce Wayne will meet a grisly end.
The latest Batman movie, The Dark Knight, starring Christian Bale as Wayne, was a box office smash this year (08) and another film is said to be in the offing - but it appears the comic book equivalent has now run its course.
The Bruce Wayne character is now expected to retire from his duties, perhaps leading to a new Batman or an entirely different superhero to take his place.
