Well sorta.

Bruce Wayne almost, but not quite, admits he's Batman - The Globe and Mail

Batman's alter ego, Bruce Wayne, is going public about his role behind the Dark Knight.

After a lifetime spent wearing the cowl — and a scowl that's made him the scourge of Gotham's madmen — the fictional billionaire is taking full responsibility for keeping the caped crusader financed to fight crime.

The admission is unveiled Wednesday in the final pages of Batman and Robin No. 16 that marks the last issue in a run by Scottish writer Grant Morrison.

The acknowledgment in the final pages comes as Wayne holds a news conference where he asks those gathered: “Some of you may have wondered ... how does a man like Batman afford to constantly update his crime-fighting technology? Where does his money come from?

“Well, the answer is me.”

The confession, Mr. Morrison said, is part of a detailed effort that puts into motion a plan for Batman Incorporated, a global network of Batmen from China to Argentina to fight crime worldwide.


Hmmm... This is a fundamental change in the storyline of Batman IMO, but then again, it's not enough to get me reading the comic books. I wonder how po'd the comic book crowd are gonna get though.

I thought that was obvious. He's been a "bachelor" all his life, and he keeps a pretty boy "assistant" by his side.

I would have liked to have seen a Batman where Bruce Wayne lost all of his money to Bernie Madoff.

Kudos for using "out" in the title. MacNN editors everywhere are nodding with approval.

That was touched upon in The Dark Knight. Bruce Wayne was too smart to deal with a company that had a perfectly consistent yearly return.

This thread needs more of that Batman slaps Robin comic generator.

Slick shoes?! Are you crazy?!

I'm confused. Isn't Batman dead and Dick Grayson pretending to be him?

Finally, a chance to make The Wild World of Batwoman part of the canon.

That's because he'll slap you blind if you catch a glimpse of him.
