First, I am a HUGE Batman fan, my home office looks like I work for DC and Warner Brothers combined, Batman figures all over the place! That being said, I was VERY disappointed in the ending of Death in the Family. I know the "psychological" part was pretty cool when Batman told Joker "I know who you are" but the overall...OOMPH...from the story just wasn't there... And now, Damian is dead (this CAN'T be a spoiler as it was in USA TODAY 3 days before Batman Inc. #8 was even out)... Now one reason we all love Batman is..................he is human. Well after ALL he has been through, I don't care HOW WELL trained he is, he is due for a MAJOR breakdown. Don't be afraid to show us how HUMAN Batman really is... Maybe he kills a few people like he did in his very early years in comics (he used to carry pistols)...? Maybe he doesn't kill anyone but he beats them into paralysis so they can't commit crimes any longer...? SOMETHING! But Batman needs to BREAK!
