DC Comics writer Tom King revealed he has a bodyguard at San Diego Comic-Con because of the death threats over Batman #50.
Spoilers ahead for Batman #50!
Earlier this month, DC Comics released King’s controversial Batman #50, which features the wedding of Batman and Catwoman. The two masked vigilantes ended up not getting married and the whole wedding was revealed to be part of Bane’s plan to break the Bat. King has now shared on Twitter that due to the outcry over the issue, he requires a bodyguard at San-Diego Comic Con this week as he walks the convention floor. You can check out King’s humorous tweet below.
Because of the Batman 50 death threats they got me a bodyguard for the Con. This is David. He is presumably already very bored with endless looking for toys.

King took over the Batman series from Scott Snyder in 2017 as a part of DC’s Rebirth line. King has revealed his run on Batman is set to continue for another 50 issues and will deal with Bane assembling some of Batman’s greatest rogues.
Batman #50 is now available on digital and in stores today!
