Right. This is bugging me as much if not more than other comic book deaths (it's a button for me). So:

Can someone please explain to me in 100 words or less how exactly Carmine Falcone is alive in Batman Eternal? He died. Badly. A bullet went through his brain. The "freaks" of Gotham held on to his corpse for the better part of a year, on ice.

I don't know which is more asinine: some bull$#!t resurrection, or pretending The Long Halloween— one of the finest Batman serials of all time— never happened.

Help a guy out?
