I don’t know that my heart can take another one. The word on the streets is that DC is sending the current Robin – Bruce Wayne’s troubled young son Damian – off into that eternal Dark Night. Never mind that fact that the kid is LOADED with more story potential then the other four Robins COMBINED, and that his weirdo sibling rivalry with the other Bat-family members is the MOST INTERESTING THING in the DC universe. As the spawn of Batman and Talia Al Ghul, who was raised by the League of Assassins to be a perfect killing machine, Damian Wayne is a Robin unlike any we’ve never seen before. He’s churlish, brooding, bratty, and often downright lethal. He makes Batman seem like Doris Day. He’s supposed to grow up to be the hardest, darkest, bleakest, most existential Batman yet. Don’t kill him now. I BEG OF YOU. And I get it. It’s DC, and he can always be thrown in a Lazarus Pit or maybe they’ll just reboot the universe again, but killing Robin just to give Batman FEELINGS for a few issues is stupid, stupid, stupid.
