    Default What if Batman's world was no more..

    I had this idea in my head for the past couple of weeks on what if story about everything tied to Bruce/Batman's world simply get wiped from existence or blown to pieces if you will. What I am talking about is all his Bat Allies, Rogue's Gallery, Batcave/Hideouts, Wayne Manor & all of Gotham itself getting completely destroyed, it's all in rubble, only Bruce/Batman survived the fallout and the main story is about how he deals with it all afterwards.

    What do you think of this idea for Batman? Could a story like this ever be told of a Batman who lost it all? And how exactly do you think the story should go?

    I'd like to see Gotham City utterly wiped out, every building leveled, every inhabitant dead or moved on. Would he know what to do with himself without a Gotham?

    Much more interesting to imagine what he would do with no money.

    I like that, too--very much. Could he hack it without all the toys? It'd be a great idea, though I doubt DC would have the cajones to do it.

    Oh, he could definitely hack it. But his tactics would have to change drastically as his resources dry up...

    Sort of like No Man's Land. Sort of.

    He'd probably just go full-time Justice League. Or move to Metropolis just to PO Supeman.

    He'd no doubt try to save the rest of the world.

    Idea: Turns out the rest of the world doesn't exist. Everything outside of Gotham is just some grand delusion sustained by the fevered mind of an Arkham patient. Gotham has existed in some dark nether dimension all along.

    That's kinda where I am getting at except add in the idea that he is also without a Home, Batcave, Alfred, Dick, Jason, Tim, Barbara, other BatFamily members and his rogue's gallery... Would he really know what to do with himself? Would he become twisted like Superman is in Injustice? Or fall to a deep depression and cause himself self hurt? I like to see his journey through this and maybe take batman into a whole new direction.

    If Gotham was well and truly OBLITERATED--no population left, no two bricks standing on each other. No nothing. I'd that Bruce's primary concern would be to clone Tim Dreck--after all, as Bruce said in "Hush"--Tim's moves are just . . . . so . . . . . (gasp) . . . . vibrant..But othersid if i's absolutelu usalvageable, na=maybe he sould moove to Boston--dojrehrtr uht foren yhr oaf,,,,,

    Wow.

    To address the OP, idk how a writer would explain that happening. Maybe if Bruce went on vacation and Gotham got nuked or something, but in any case I think maybe Bruce would kill himself. The job he'd been doing forever is over, what's there to live for?

    There'd still be lives to save. Assaults to stop.
