Man, pissing off the Batman. Not sure that's something I'd pull.

I can't believe they killed off Damien.

Love DC and their New 52 version of Batman and the Robins, but killing Damien just seemed forced, lazy and like they ran out of ideas and they said one day "Meh, lets kill off Damien and worry about story telling some other time..."

I mean, that was a huge WTF moment for me. I thought this reboot would be a wake up call.

Smh, Y his Carrie Kelly ALIVE and adult in OUR time?! DC can't stick with their current stream LIVINGZ CHARACTERS!!!

Somewhere in a corner in a darkplace, there lies a former user by the name of SteveRogerson who is absolutely devastated by the loss of Damian and is still in great mourning!

Loved Damian, and they [frick]ing killed him. [frick]ing Grant Morrison.

I wish they would have just let Todd die cause he basically killed killing robins. At this point you know ra's is going to resurect Damian and Talia via the lazuras pitt, [frick] Grant Morrison.

Nothing is going on here because the DC troll patrol is pa-trolling the SHIELD articles.

@MachineGunner It was less DC and more Morrison. He doesn't care much about continuity and just likes to write his own stories no matter the consequences on others.

@BlackJack10

Or, maybe killed him off at the end of Death of the Family. I was so underwhelmed by the ending.

@MrGod
Morrison made Damian so he can kill him if he wants and he
doesn't want to bring Damian back anyway.
Plus Jason Todd is awesome, he had a good story at least when he came back.

Love the art.

DC all over, kill off the sidekicks or any rising young superhero but keep the main characters alive and forever young with some ridiculous reboot every ten years or simply raise them from the dead.

Until they grow up and allow heroes to actually die and pass on the torch to their understudies, this medium will never mature beyond kids stuff.

I wonder if someone will do a story at some point where Harvey's face finally goes septic? I'm pretty sure if I was drawing the book I'd be depicting him as having a shiny pink scarred face by now. Like a burns victim. Not like 'half zombie man' as a lot of people draw him.

Meh, so what. If Ras took the bodies, it's just to revive them in a pit somewhere. Or something.

Carrie Kelly!!! I love the New 52!
Please make Carrie Kelly the new Robin. I know it's too soon, as far as Bruce is concerned, but in DKR she just put on the costume of her own volition, anyway. Maybe she's gonna find out that Damien was Robin and take up his mantle. That's be cool.
And somebody's gotta do something with the Mutants, since they've been introduced already, in Batman Inc. Especially since Grant inferred that they were all Damien clones, in the last issue.
BlackRobin98 - 10/18/2013, 5:16 PM
@DukeA & others
My big bros?!?!?! She shouldn't even EXIST in this time line!?!?! Hire some of Us DC!mwe are throbbing with ideas,n fresh new ORIGINAL IDEAS! We could all write you new characters; twist, arcs and WORTHWHILE REHATCHINGS WITH OUTgrave robbings, the Pit or use of a time machine o go grab up a future Robin from one dang near else worlds/what IF POSSIBLE Bat Fam Future! ANDnwe can write both villains and heros. HECC, despite all the hate I get mainly for long ass comments& role playing (it's the AUTHOR IN ME, The AUTHOR IN ME get it, hint hint! MY WHOLE PERSONA/avatar is a very fictional Bat Fam black (oooh that scares ppl & turns on they racial buttons. GOD forbid their be one full black member of the Bat Fam for black KIDs to look up too & fans be inspired by! Obama's kids can look up to Our President & believe the nearly 500yr old dream but can't open a 3dollar comic & find that Batman/Beuce Wayne would trust a,...look@ my name (&ANY reply other than support & co rallying OR pointing out @LEAST 2full black members of the Bat Fam, hell even when his back was broken no black replacement!; it coulda been a black guy who Azreal later takes out, either have him return later with his own ID and give him a bludhaven or something OR make him a matry with a dedication between Spoiler and the penny, irony & all! Hell as it stands you can argue that Bruce is both an atheist AND a racist! two things against me. So just hate me more for havin legit complaints! (The lack of black) & be4 you poor all the crap on me, I suggest ANY if you ANY of you before ignoring my comments as always out of racism probably 4some, look up Green Lantern accused of racism in his own damn book! THEN TELL ME like a MAN NOT HIDING BEHIND HIDING BEHIND A SCREEN THERE'S NO PRESIDENCE (or A IN genre precedent, Hell an in-HOUSE precedent, meaning in DC specifically!!) AND the GL thing!!! He was NOT UNDER DURESS OR THREAT FROM EVEN A MID LEVEL ENEMY, HELL NO, IT WAS A QUESTION AS TO Y HE NEVER HELPS BLACKS FROM A SUVILIAN. and so I don't even dare accuse ME of the last ass resort, 'reverse racism' the writer if that issue of GL is WHITE & outside my churchnAll my friends r white All my Gfs have been white, I grew up in a white neighborhood, prolly from my environment I prefer white girls AND white friends, mainly bc I have way more in common with them even with music.AND I prolly experienced a lil more racism despite this AND my young age so yeah. I still know right from wrong. ¬ diversifying the NON Black Fam is PART of that. White fans haven't a clue what it's like to open a comic book & not seeing a mirror in their heros to ID with! Know how many times as a child I heard; "U can't be Batman he's white. You can be ONE if the GLs or Cyborg I think." What I couldn't just pretend to be white? That stuff sh!t stays with a kid, and no white person can pretend to know what that feels like. THINK some times. STOP & Think be4 assuming blacks r always pulling the race card. & try an imagine Y. Could it have been, just maybe there's something ?real & more to it. How could a person vote for a man jus bc of his race? May e for ONCE they wanna feel represented! (Btw I wouldn't have done that tho even if I was old enough, I never plan to vote bc of my Christianity) besides to me Clinton was the 1st black Pres, even tho it wasn't enough obviously the ppl had to see it. My Grandma died at 93 last May and Im PROUD that for all the places she could not go in&was kicked out of she could see Dr. King's Dream fully realize. Sorry so long but IF YOU READ THIS FAR, PLS READ 1final few sentence story about Grandma. Scroll down & see its brief! Thx. U kno who one of her unlikely heros were? NO reason this man shoulda been a hero to her. She walked into a deli once where blacks could buy lunch but unbenounced to her could NOT sit down or eat @the counter. Well like Rosa Parks she was very tired AND preg! So she sat @the counter. Here comes the very white off duty Naval Commander who owned the place. He explained the policy if the place, Colored Sale to Takeaway ONLY. My Grandmother preg w/my Aunt & with my 8 yr old Dad to be. As she grabbed her things & stood, the owner took her hand&withna tear in his eye said under his breath; "Miss, I don't agree with this but it's the law. Down here in the South that's how it is. I'm from up North where things are a lil different & men don't act like animals with their laws ect. I am so sorry. But if I broke the law & followed my heart then Id be subject to the same punishment for I if not more! My Grandmansqueezed his hand & expressed understanding. "things will change Miss" to which my Gma replied her final words to him; "Oh I know!" As she & my father2be left he raged with anger wanting change immediate! My GMa told him; "Son change his coming, tho its coming slow we must be patient! And the battlelines are not black vs white." She pointed back to the cafe. "That nice man lime many others are working on the same colorLESS. LINES as Your Father & I. But he has to be patient too!" Thanks for your time, pls let me know if YOU patient until the end of his comment, I need to know that SOME1 out there stayed in for that treat & prayerfully the colorblind, We're all Americans with the potential to be heros, message!
BlackRobin98 - 10/18/2013, 5:25 PM

BUT if you skim it make sure you slow down enough to catch the who,e MEANING FROM ME WANTING BLACK MEMBERS OF THE BAT FAM AS WITH X Men we see & where these feelings come from & Y ALL kids & readers want to look in they fave books, media & see a mirror that they are represented!! II promise you are in for a seldom seen treat from me & in this type forum. U KNO how occasionally you hit on a gem in & among a blog/comment section. This is a rare time th@ Im really askin you guys to dig deep & take the time to try it!mCOME ON YOU HAVE READ A BOOK BE4?? If U THINK OF IT AS AN ESSAY OR BOOK IT'S A SHORT BOOK.ASK CBM Y THEY ALLOWED THIS MUCH SPACE OF THEY DIDN'T EXPECT IT TO B SOMETIMES USED, U CAN EVEN COMPLAIN!
