    So someone recommended Batman #666, which I picked up the other day. Since I haven't read much Batman stuff in recent years, needless to say, I was rather lost.

    Why is Bruce dead and who is this new person?
    Also, what is the deal with Batman having a deal with the devil?

    Someone explain this to me!

    Methinks it might have something to do with the issue number being six-six-six?

    And yes, i too would like an explanation on the above post^.

    It was pretty much a one-shot look into the future, though tying up the 3 evil Batmen storyline that's been so often delayed lately with Kubert's pencils. Will this be the actual future? I wonder. I don't think we'll ever really see this future, not that far into it at least, except maybe as further one-shots or it's own title. Will DC actually go so far as to kill Bruce Wayne and have Dick take his place? Well, Morrison is writing Final Crisis. Hmmm...

    Bruce Wayne had a kid with Ra's al Ghul's daughter,and 666 is a "what if" story of what it would be like if the kid became Batman.

    It's a one shot, it happens like you've been reading past issues, but the issue is self contained, you know all we know. That is ALL THERE IS. The only other thing to know to the psyco's back story which takes place at the begining of the Kubert run where Batman takes the kid in, and to repay Batman the kid trys to kill Alfred and Tim, and then runs around is a homemade (and crappy) Robin outfit saying I beat the pretender you don't need two sons.(Bruce has adopted Tim) Oh yeah and there are Man-Bat Ninja's running around. As for the future story line in 666 there is nothing else at this time. The deal with the devil first came up in that issue and hasn't happened in modern continuity(so it may never happen)
