    I was over lurking at the DC message boards and someone posted Extracts from Morrison's Wizard interview:

    "He's a very proud,determined and quite humorous guy-he's obviously seen the worst life has to offer,and he's got a really black sense of humor about it.I want to enter this character a lot more realistically:What would this guy actually be like,this millionaire kid who's built himself Batmobiles and Batplanes and has a cave.What the ***** would that guy be thinking?"

    "Iwant to see Bruce waking up in bed with three supermodels,because Batman just thinks,'Well,that keeps me healthy and happy.That's good for the mission'"

    Like i said in a previous post on another thread,Grant Morrison "gets" Batman.He know's what this character is all about.Not just Batman though,he also "gets" The Joker.

    Now,on to the preview of issue #655:

    The Joker:"I did it.I finally killed Batman.In front of a busload of vulnerable disabled kids!!!

    This is why Morrison is my favourite comic writer. I love you Grant:( :up:

    I glanced at the Wizard preview for "Batman and Son"
    From what I remember Batman and Son starts out with Gordon falling from a rooftop after being poisoned by the Joker. He is caught. Then a splash page of the Joker standing over a badly beaten Batman. The next thing I remember seeing is the Joker getting shot in the head by another Batman. The next page is Batman holding the Joker, a little reminiscent of Death in the Family. That's all I got.

    This sounds good. I can't wait for Morrison to start his run. It's going to be great. That Joker line is really good too.

    As it did mine. Morrison is going to absolutely rule the book when his arc begins, he's someone who understands the character. The Joker line was great as well, good find, nite-owl. Thanks for posting this, I honestly can't wait. Not to mention how Andy Kubert will be doing the pencils, his art is fantastic.

    I just saw the preview pages and they looked great. I loved Jim Lee's Batman and Andy Kubert's is very similar.

    Any guesses for who the other Batman is?

    I suspect it will be Jason since he draws a gun on the Joker, but I hope not. First he imitates Nightwing and now Batman?

    I'm thinking it's
    Jason
    . It makes sense, all things considered.

    I got the pics off of newsarama, so I can't take the credit. You know joker's not dead, though. the bullet probably glanced off of his skull or something.

    Hmm, my first response to reading that summary was that it was a dream or soemthing, but it could be Jason. Man, I hate that guy. He needs to get his own identity.

    It could be someone else, but I wouldn't be suprised if it's Jason. When I was looking at the previews for the issue, one page shows Joker beating on the other Batman with a crowbar. We all know that was the same weapon he used to kill Jason, not to mention how Jason refers to Bruce as "father" when talking to Talia in the annual issue. Hence why the arc is called "Batman and Son," even though Morrison said he was bringing Ibn back into continuity.

    Wait, what?!?! He calls him father? That's just damn creepy! There turning him into an obsessed maniac. Wait, what if, when Bruce finds out about Ibn, Jason gets on a jealousy tip, and goes after him. Kidnaps him or something. Then in order to save the day, Batman needs help from Dick and Tim, his other "sons". Something tells me this is going to be alot deeper than I first thought. I can't f****n wait!

    Well, Bruce is Jason's father. That's pretty much been established.

    Jason just seems to want to mess with all they're minds though....I guess he just went on to Nightwing.

    That preview.....wow. WOW. Morrison's writing in only about 4 or 5 pages has already outdone about 4 issues of Miller's writing. It's like that, for me atleast.

    Btw...hope nobody minds If I use some of those Morrison quotes for my sig....those are just nice.
