Days ago, DC Comics let the cat out of the bag and confirmed to the NY Post Robin would be killed during a battle with a brutal enemy in issue #8 of Batman Inc. The real of identity of the murdered sidekick was Damian Wayne, the 10-year-old son of Bruce Wayne and Talia al Ghul, making the death even more tragic.
Writer Grant Morrison assured fans in the interview, "He saves the world. He does his job as Robin. He dies an absolute hero."
