All throughout December, we will be examining comic book stories and ideas that were not only abandoned, but also had the stories/plots specifically “overturned” by a later writer (as if they were a legal precedent). Click here for an archive of all the previous editions of The Abandoned An’ Forsaked. Feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any suggestions for future editions of this feature.
Today we look at one of the earliest examples of abandoning and forsaking a comic book story.

However, Batman #4 showed us another side of Batman…
And that’s more or less been the status quo ever since!
