The Abandoned An’ Forsaked – Batman Kills People With Guns

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 bcronin@comicbookresources.com 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.

Enjoy!

In Batman #1, Batman takes care of business with a machine gun mounted on his Bat-plane…



And in Detective Comics #35, he sure looks comfortable carrying a gun…


However, Batman #4 showed us another side of Batman…


And that’s more or less been the status quo ever since!
