    Robin

    Concept » Robin appears in 942 issues.

    The patron saint of superhero sidekicks, several young people have taken on the role of Robin, Batman's partner in the battle against crime: Dick Grayson was the first, followed by Jason Todd, Tim Drake, and Stephanie Brown and currently Damian Wayne. The title of Robin is an honor all on its own comparable to that of Batman.

    The monthly solicitations for January will be revealed today. This allows us to see what we can expect to see in January. While they sometimes contain minor unavoidable spoilers, the solicit for BATMAN AND ROBIN #38 contain a pretty big one.

    With Robin Rises, we’ve heard that “a” Robin would be returning take on the role and partner with Batman. We’ve long debated whether or not it would be Damian, somehow returning from the dead, or a different previous Robin. Peter Tomasi decided to reveal, via his Twitter page, the identity before the solicits actually break later today. Be sure to check back for the official solicit.

    SPOILERS BELOW.

    @keroga: Well Damian had regenerative abilities in the future in Batman #666. Maybe this is how he gets them!

    Good to have you back Damian. I look forward to reading your ongoing adventures again. Glad to be reading Batman and Robin, Tomasi is writing an underrated Bat title, arguably better than Snyder's sometimes.

    Pity, thought killing the little psycho was one of the best moves the New 52 had during it, plus it kept the Robin population down.

    Sucks that the cat has to be let out of the bag this early, but I applaud Tomasi for bringing back Damian rather than doing some cheap "oh you thought it would be Damian, but it's this instead!" twist.

    Also i hope he doesn't come back with powers, because I just want a normal "Batman and Robin" book where it's the dynamic due fighting crime. Not that I want Batman and Robin to stay away from the weird or the fantastical.

    lame and so not worth this build up. he was gone a year, its so freaking pathetic that DC cant actually do something different and new. Damian was gonna come back no matter what, but no way did i want this so soon and especially him coming back as Robin. Goodbye, character moments that involved his death and how it affected the family, goodbye any development made my Bruce, and goodbye to any diversity added to the Robin mythos by playing it safe and bringing back a character who literally died last year. im so freaking disappointed

    Given that the Chaos Crystal will probably be involved in his resurrection, I'd be willing to wager that Damian's going to be coming back with powers now. And I love how Tomasi switches between different types of stories so deftly.

    @sentryman555: It was, and the Devil was strongly hinted at being Dr Hurt. But if they decided to change it up this would be an easy way to do it. Plus they can just explain it away as having something to do with Apokolips being a Hell analogue. A Robin with powers would be cool and it would help explain why Bruce would ever let him out on the field again after what happened.

    Which means the Justice League beat the devil? That's pretty cool to say haha

    @noj: Oh that's a really good point. Bruce would need a solid reason to let damian come back to fighting crime after what happened.

    Awesome that he is back I loved how his character grew before his death. Now who changed the timeline because in the batman and robin futures end book robin was still dead and that duke dude is robin, so it looks like that future no longer happens, am I right?

    I'm really glad about this. We are already going to be getting about four or five new BatFamily Members (Duke, Harper, Julia, Steph, Cullen?) so I'm glad he is coming back. I can't wait to see how he reacts to Grayson being "dead" if that is still Grayson's status by then.

    Agreed. Tomasi is becoming one of the best Batman writers, and even though Morrison created Damian, Tomasi is the best at writing him.

    I don't really see the hype. He's just another "badass" violent character, no substance, no depth. I'd rather see Duke Thomas, I want to see some color in the Bat-family.

    @johnny_blaze: thats absolutely not true at all. Damian has a ton of depth. Hes a kid who grew up not only spoiled but also in an extremely violent and hard environment. He thrived in that and since then hes had to learn to live in the real world. Underneath the badass exterior hes still a kid as seen in the early issues of Tomasi's Batman and Robin. Hes a great character.
