Batman vs. History

Tonight, I love Grant Morrison.

Now, I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with Grant Morrison's work. But I've been very excited for The Return of Bruce Wayne since I heard about it. The idea of Batman existing in the past of the DCU and putting his stamp on things from the earliest times is a brilliant concept.

Even better is Batman moving through different time periods and taking on roles in all of them. From the start we knew he was in prehistoric times. And so I declared that Batman had to fight Vandal Savage.

Ask, and ye shall receive:

"Grant Morrison: Setting the events in primal times allowed me to tell a very straightforward story about Bruce Wayne's basic survival skills, his fighting prowess and his power to inspire myth. Vandal Savage is involved in a big way. We also meet the son of DC's Anthro character and the great-grandfather of Kong the Untamed, as well as learning the origins of the Miagani Tribe –the 'Bat People' who were revealed to have inhabited the Gotham City area in 'Legends of the Dark Knight', back in the '90s."

It's all coming together, people. This is going to be awesome.
