Batman Day is this Saturday, which means all week long we’ll be celebrating the Dark Knight (and Gotham’s maid of mischief, Harley Quinn) here on DCComics.com. But that’s not all. We’re also celebrating his fans.
Every Batman fan has dreamed of becoming the Dark Knight—putting on the cowl, firing up the Batmobile and heading out to take on the Joker. However, we’d imagine that very few of them have dreamed about being Bruce Wayne as a child. While having your own Batcave and hanging with the Justice League would be fun, the important tragedy it took for Bruce Wayne to get there is often overlooked.
That’s the powerful idea that is presented in this week’s SUPERMAN #28. It’s a fact that I think many comic fans don’t doubt. The Man of Steel has always been presented as a savior of the universe; the one being that can stop the imminent danger and protect us. Well, this week this fictional character demonstrated an ability that I’ve never seen. Through life and now death, Superman can save you.
He will save you.
Do you think they have apples on Korugar? Maybe not, but when it comes to its most famous resident and his daughter, the only thing we can say is that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!
