I am about 75% sure I know what the deal is with Batman/Bat-folks in Final Crisis. Being in a crowded convention center for three days straight with 60,000 industry people and fans, it was inevitable that some tasty tidbits were going to shake out.
I am so sure that I'm not even going to hint as to whether my various and sundry other theories were correct or not. This is because I firmly feel that, in the end, spoiling comics to that extent is a shitty thing to do.
I will say, however, that the amount of information/disinformation that has gone out about "Batman RIP" is the most covert, multi-layered, and labyrinthine operation that has ever been undertaken since the Kennedy assassination. I mean, it has truly been impressive. I suppose, in an era of "Marvel B0y" and Internet spoilers running through the system in the matter of a day, it must have been necessary.
I'm simply going to shut up, grab some popcorn, and wait for the books to come out. This is really going to be good.
