Washington: Batman's sidekick, Robin the Boy Wonder, will die battling a brutal enemy in a comic to be published on Wednesday. The shocking death of the Dark Knight's aide-de-camp will first appear in issue No. 8 of the offshoot title ' Batman Incorporated,' but the aftermath of his demise will ripple throughout the DC Comics universe, the publisher confirmed exclusively to media.
Writer Grant Morrison told media that Robin saves the world and dies an absolute hero. Robin aka Damian Wayne, the 10-year-old son of Bruce Wayne is killed while fighting a hulking assassin who happens to be his 'brother,' as he is cloned from his genetic material. And in this issue, unlike all the times he has swooped in at the last minute, Batman arrives too late to save Robin.
