Holy Batshit! Boy Wonder Bites The Dust

"I've gotta go to the batroom!"

Remember Robin, Batman’s young and often annoying sidekick? You know the one who made you feel like grabbing his tights and giving him a super wedgie?  Like Ronald McDonalds, there have been many Robins over the years – in comics and movies and on tv.  There even  was a Wonder Bat Girl at one time.  They’ve all died except the current Robin, Damian, Batman’s 10-year old son – who will kick it tomorrow in cartoon red.

DC Comics has confirmed that Robin will croak in the new issue of the comic but didn’t reveal too many details of his demise.  Needless to say he dies a superhero, “battling a brutal enemy.”

I doubt if he will be mourned by many.  Hell, if the kid couldn’t pull in new readers – or excite old ones – his comic days were numbered anyway.
