The Dark Knight, who has protected the streets of Gotham City and the world at large finally met his end on January 14th, 2009 at the hands of the Darkseid, God of Evil.
Where The Joker, Mr. Freeze, Bane, Ras Al Ghul and many other failed, the power of a god finally succeeded as the caped crusader was felled by Darkseid’s ‘Omega Sanction’ effect.
Written by Grant Morrison, Batman: RIP forced the Caped Crusader to question his own beliefs, leaving him mentally and physically shattered before facing Darkseid alone in Issue 6 of Final Crisis.
Farewell Batman, your legend shall live on forever.
