The New York Times spoiled the ending of Batman #50. But there is more to the story. The following post contains spoilers. Continue only if you are good with having the rest of the issue spoiled. The pictures are redacted. The accompanying text isn’t.
Needless to say the revelations that the Bat and the Cat were not getting married shocked some people, and of course, not others. The biggest kicker for many on-line was DC’s marketing campaign promoting the wedding and making it a “sure thing” the wedding of the century was happening. (Kudos to Marvel for doing the same thing a week or two back, but with positive results.) Retailers took to the message boards blasting DC. Do not even get me started with Tom King’s Twitter feed of hate for writing it, of course, Tom isn’t guilty of the promotion that went out, and the series of books released on “who was going to be the best man.”
But there is more to the story that the New York Times didn’t spoil. Here is that part.
So there you have it, he broke Batman’s back before, and now he is going for his heart.
