Well to be fair...this had been rumoured for months now. The spoilers just confirmed it.

Not spoiler coding it because thread title and I'm too lazy to use the code/don't like it. Courtesy space, though.

Ok, won't this be the SECOND Robin Bruce loses to death? (Granted the other one came back from the dead, but whatever...) And furthermore this is his SON! Even more than that this was an actual CHILD he placed in this danger. This wasn't a young teenager or anything but his own CHILD. I don't see how this COULDN'T utterly push Batman completely and totally over the edge or just out-right destroy him completely.

It'll be "interesting" to see how much they pull this off in a manner that doesn't feel cheap and like they're waving it away. And, yes, it does bring up the question on who the next Robin will be.

As mentioned before Harper Row has been already speculated/rumoured to be a new Robin/sidekick type character for Bruce, and yeah it'll be the second Robin (officially, but really the third since Steph's "death" was retconned). I fully expect that there will be some immediate impact on Bruce and he'll go isolated or whatever.

Even though we all pretty much knew it was going to happen, that's still a colossal dick move by the New York Post.

Well, it's the New York Post. Anyway, I doubt its readership are big comic readers anyway.

Harper Row being the next Robin would be really cool, I liked her use in the couple issues of "Batman" she was in.

On another note, in order to increase my purchases to meet the credit-card minimum a couple of weeks ago I bought an issue of Wonder Woman (#13.) I finally read it last night and actually enjoyed it. The art work for me still isn't greatly impressive but the story was good and little closer to what I was looking for in the WW comic. (Which for those first few issues just seemed to be drifting. I may check out more recent issues to see how I like them.

Because Bruce kind of adapted himself to survive any psychological trauma. The closest he ever had to a nervous breakdown was in Infinite Crisis and that was due to War Games, OMAC Project, the Return of Jason from the dead and Dick almost getting killed. He has had much worse than this.

I have to wonder if this might be an intentional leak on Morrison's part and whether or not he's doing some sort of longer con here.

What kind of con? As has been discussed before, he planned to kill him before hand in the opening arc "Batman and Son". He changed his mind.

Batman and Son was really an outlier. If you listen to the Kevin Smith interview with Morrison, he basically admits to shooting blanks when he did that story.

The Flash (end of current arc, which means the last time I'll pull The Flash for now.)

I may pull Batman, Inc. for the "event."

No idea, but it reminds me of the RIP storyline where we thought it was about Batman dying but in the end it was about him being misplaced in time.

Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

Yeah well that would probably be due to the RIP homage cover. I don't think this is con or a temporary solution. Morrison is pretty passionate about Damian...he's probably planned this from the start. Chris Burnham confirmed in an interview today with Newsarama he has known about this for the past two years now from when he first read Morrison's outline for "season two". I don't see how it could be a "Final Crisis" type situation. Unless of course one of the clones survives somehow that Talia has been growing, but I have a feeling that will be dealt with in the grand finale.

I'm not saying he'll necessarily be misplaced in time but that this might be a similar situation where we're lead to think a character is dead but something even odder has happened. We'll see.

There was no time travel in RIP. You are thinking of Final Crisis and Return of Bruce Wayne.
