So Damian Wayne died today and that sucks. Damian is one of my favorite characters in comics and seeing him die leaves a hole in the DC Universe. At some point Damian WILL come back. its just how things work in comics and Ive never been happier about that. However the real question is how long it will take for him to come back and how he will brought back (sooner rather than later hopefully). In my mind there are 3 ways to effectively bring Damian back hopefully without pissing off too many people.
1.) The Lazarus Pit: This is the most obvious one and IMO the one they are most likely to go with. Damian is Ra's al Ghuls grandson the Lazarus Pit is practically in his blood. Actually that would be a cool way to bring him back by saying that the Lazurus Pit had warped Ra's genes over the years which passed on to Damian giving him limited rejuvenation when he dies. But more likely someone is going to give Damian a long bath in the Lazarus pit and hopefully he will be back to new in no time.
2.) Clones/Advanced Medicine: Twice in Morrison's run Damian has been horribly injured. The first time was shortly after his introduction where he was blown up on the submarine (where he was going to originally die) and next when he was shot several times in the back by Flaming during the Red Hood arc of Batman and Robin. In both of these instances Damian was taken in by his mother and fixed up by very advanced medication including having all his organs replaced and him a spine replacement. In fact Talia had multiple cloned organs and other specimens in an advanced medical facility on standby just in case. Maybe Talia will put this facility to good use again? This seems slightly less likely given her apparent abandonment of Damian but maybe those tears at the end of 8 are signs of her heart coming back?
3.) Deal with the Devil: As seen in Batman #666 when he was 14 years old Batman died. At this point Damian made a deal with the Devil (presumably Dr Hurt) and gained supernatural abilities such as advanced regeneration. As we saw a few issues ago during Batman's trip thru time he glimpsed this future and was able to relay it to Damian and the rest of the Robin's. Batman's knowledge changed the future in some ways which presumably lead to Damian's death. However what if this event moves Damian's deal with the devil up a few years? Damian being brugh back with supernatural abilities is certainly another step towards the 666 future. This is probably the least likely one of the 3 to actually happen but the one I would want to see the most.
Well these are my ideas to bring Damian back. What do you think of them and what are some of yours?
