HOLY TRAFFIC INFRACTION, ROBIN!

It has not been a good week for the Caped Crusader. First came news that Batman was going to be killed off in an upcoming comic book. Now the Batmobile just got a parking ticket. Don’t believe me? Check out the above photo.

Actor Aaron Eckhart apparently left the vehicle illegally parked outside his movie studio in England. Viola: parking violation.

BATMAN IS DEAD

D.C. Comics is killing off Batman. Despite recently published denials, the storyline in the new comic “Batman R.I.P.” features the death of Bruce Wayne-Batman’s alter ego.

Wayne is killed by his own father. In a “highly controversial” storyline, Bruce Wayne is killed by Simon Hurt, the leader of the Black Glove organization. Right before he kills him, Hurt reveals he is really Dr. Thomas Wayne (Bruce’s father) and that he had faked his own death years before.

There is speculation that the comic series will continue with a new Batman. Either Dick Grayson (the original “Robin”) or the current Boy Wonder, Tim Drake, are being considered as the new Dark Knight.

The exact issue where Batman dies is DC Comics’ Batman # 681.
