Ahhh. No wonder my brain's remembering wrong. That sounds so damn unbelievable. (Having fought super villains for a few days in a row, beaten like hell by Bane, back broken and then thrown off a building and still surviving)

Thanks for that!

Well, he's just BARELY surviving - Alfred and Tim have to put him on life support immediately and pull strings to make sure he's not paralyzed for life.
You're welcome.

And in the end he had to be healed by a psychic, but the effort reverts her to babyhood.

That's.... um. Wow. How did I never realize how completely gross that is until I saw that written out like that.

I have no idea, it's appalled me for years.

Especially since said psychic was quite a cool supporting character and potential love interest for Bruce. I wish one of these days, mainstream comics would stop being such wimps about interracial relationships - it's long since passed the point (I hope) where it would be controversial. A black guy hooking up with a white woman is fine, apparently - view Luke Cage and Jessica Jones - but a black woman hooking up with a white guy still seems to be taboo for some reason (at any rate, I can't think of any in-comics examples). Why is that, do you think? It's weird.

Well there's Misty Knight and Danny Rand for one.

Riiiiiiiight right right right - I'd forgotten that one; thanks. Still, 'white man, black woman' relationships are far less common in comics than ones the other way around.

Right - although I haven't read that one yet, just heard of it. Has that part of the story been collected in trades yet, know you?

The third Knightfall trade I think... not sure if it's still in print.

Nah, I own that one - it's all about Bruce getting in fighting shape again and facing Az-Bats, and takes place AFTER he's out of the wheelchair. I think the part of the story it skips over is termed 'Knightquest', so it may be in a separate volume.
