COMICS: Will We See A New (Possibly Female) Robin In BATMAN & ROBIN #19?
This is complete speculation for now, but one half of the gatefold covers for April's Batman & Robin #19 definitely teases a different - or at least a differently costumed - Robin alongside The Caped Crusader. Check out the cover and a brief solicitation after the jump..
On the darkest of nights, who is the one person Batman meets that could change his life forever?
Who is swinging alongside Bats in the above pic? Here's where the speculation comes in. Many believe - though there isn't any real evidence to support it yet - that Damian will meet his maker as the end of the "Death Of The Family" arc. I mean lets face it, SOMEONE will most likely end up brown bread if this story is indeed going to feature “an unspeakable tragedy that places Batman in danger of losing his humanity.” And if it is Damian, a new Robin will be a must - but could it be a female this time? As Comicbook.com note, the above image is reminiscent of an iconic pic from Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns, which features Bats swinging into action alongside young Carrie Kelly as Robin. I'm sure we'll find out more about this soon enough, but for now, assuming we will be getting a new Robin (female or otherwise), how would that go down with you guys?
