Last month, the DC Universe was shocked to learn about the tragic death of Damian Wayne (a.k.a. Robin) in BATMAN, INCORPORATED #8.
Following the horrific return of The Joker in “Death of the Family,” Damian’s surprising fatality came at a time that was already shrouded with darkness for the Bat-family. Broken and suffering from an unprecedented loss, what’s coming next for Gotham City’s mightiest protectors?
Many fans have been taking the death of young Damian Wayne hard, and for good reason. Since his introduction, Damian struggled against his violent and dangerous tendencies to become a force for good in the war against crime in Gotham. Even more important, he had embraced his role within the Wayne family, building relationships not just with his father, but other extended members such as Alfred, Dick, Barbara and Tim.

Fearful of his son’s dark future under Talia’s guidance, Batman took Damian under his wing upon discovering the boy’s existence and trained him as the new Robin.
