I'm surprised nobody posted this. Batman was killed off in the most recent Batman comic book #681. He died in a helicopter crash. So, do you think he is truly dead? It seems like a bad time to kill him off with the movies doing so well.. Plus he's Batman. He shouldn't get killed off ever. Marvel Wins, Even in Death Do you think he is truly dead? There are rumors that he survived the crash but I guess we will have to wait and see. Otherwise Batman #681 would have been a really good one to buy.
