In issue #77 of Batman, the unthinkable happened. Readers everywhere were stunned to see Alfred Pennyworth—the faithful butler to not only Batman, but all the Bat-Family—meet a brutal end at the hands of Bane.
Alfred Pennyworth served the Wayne family for decades—even through the terrible loss of the Dark Knight’s parents. His shocking death at the hands of Bane is the only event that could possibly compare to that fateful night in Crime Alley, and it leaves Bruce at a similar crossroads.
If Alfred was the glue that held the Bat-Family together, how will Batman deal with that all falling apart? And if the Caped Crusader is to be truly alone, he might either hang that cape up once and for all…or double down and carry on with this vengeful quest forever.
