Tried searching everywhere for when Snyder said that he was only giving permission to maim, not kill a character. I searched tweets forever and didn't see it, but I know it was said.
Honestly, I don't remember. I just remember reading it. And I know it was from the horses mouth.
It seems like a lot of Grant's run was about forcing bruce wayne to admit that there is a person beyond bruce wayne (facade) and batman, and that he's an actual human being.
I guess I just don't like the idea of Bruce forgetting the "first truth of batman" so soon.
Pull List: Aquaman, Death of the Family, Ultimate Comics Spider Man, Uncanny Avengers, Secret Service, Locke and Key & I, Vampire
If there was one person whose death would realistically have the approproate impact it's Alfred. Even if they haven't had any interaction with him it's easy to see how the Robins would take his death hard. For Bruce in particular it would be like being orphaned again.
Of course, the Joker could never beat Alfred. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sU8mj9lid0s
