Grant Morrison Wants to Destroy Batman

In an interview with Newsarama, the popular wizard says his Batman Inc. finale will destroy the entire concept of Batman.

In an interview with Newsarama head honcho Lucas Siegel, acclaimed comic book writer and grown-up who believes in magick Grant Morrison had a peculiar answer to a question about his long Batman epic ending with Batman Inc. #13 later this month:

"I really think a lot of people will hate it, because it’s super bleak. It kind of – to a certain extent it destroys the concept of Batman," Morrison explains, later claiming that "you cannot bring Batman into the light, is basically what I’ve learned. So we wanted to acknowledge that in this last issue – it’s quite nightmarish in a way."

Morrison goes on to say that people will eventually come around and start to understand his work, but it will take some time, and they will certainly be upset at first. Come on now, Grant. Surely you're not suggesting that comic book fans' reactions will be anything other than calm and reasoned. You wound us, sir. I'm never buying a Grant Morrison comic again! Grant Morrison ruined comics! Grant Morrison is like the George Zimmerman of comic book writers! Justice for Batman! Justice for Batman!

Ahem... so yeah, as we were saying, we're sure comic book fans won't overreact to this. We're not known for that.

But is Morrison right? Will his comic destroy the entire concept of Batman?

Impossible, we say. A man who dresses up like a bat and fights bad guys, who is so smart and awesome that he can kick anyone's ass, even Superman, given enough "prep time?" That's rock solid right there. Morrison must be high if he thinks...

Oh, what's that? He's always high? Okay, that makes perfect sense then. The stoned out of his gourd Morrison also talks about Multiversity, the Son of Batman animated movie, and the time he ate a talking hot dog, man, and you can read about at least two of those things at the full interview.

Batman Inc. #13 hits stores on July 31.

With DC mucking up so many other aspects of their universe, Wayne was probably feeling left out with just that whole "Catwoman booty call and angry costumes-on rooftop sex".

Ehh...Morrison may write over my head from time to time (more than Straczynski, not as much as Alan Moore), but I'm willing to give whatever he dishes out a fair shake.

Still...he's coming right out and saying he's wants to "destroy" Batman. I guess that's more honest than what DC execs have done with certain other characters I don't need to name.

(Nowhere in the interview did he actually say he wanted to destroy Batman.) :wink:

Yeah, I'm not sure what you can do to the concept of Batman at this point which would shock anyone. I think it's pretty much acknowledged the character can never really "win" the war he's fighting.

It really won't matter much, as DC will ignore most of what Morrison did with Batman, like it seems to have done with Morrison's Superman.

I find it interesting that since the Batman/Superman movie was announced, Warner Bros has gotten a ton of criticism from the larger sphere outside comics journalism for relying too heavily on Batman.

It's not much relevant.
Technically Batman Incorporated is not a Batman comic book, it's a sock sponsored by DC Comics that Grant Morrison's ego use to masturbate in front of a mirror.

it actually is a Batman comic book, and it's a tremendously entertaining Batman comic book at that. it's been better than Snyder's book and better than B&R (with the exception of the Annual) for quite a while.

and I say that as somebody who normally shit-talks Morrison as much or more than anybody.

There are bits I've really liked. Damien's whole arc, in particular. The death was really well written.
