Spoiler alert: Batman to face major loss in upcoming comic
NEW YORK (AFP) - If you hate being spoiled, stop reading now.
Batman may be able to save the world, but he'll lose his sidekick Robin - who in his current incarnation is his son - in the upcoming Batman Incorporated comic book series.
DC Comics said the caped crusader's acrobatic young assistant, Batman alter ego Bruce Wayne's son Damian, will die in Wednesday's issue number eight.
"This master theme of damaged and ruined families was nowhere more in evidence than in the creation of Damian, the first 'Son of Batman' to be acknowledged in the canon," series writer Grant Morrison said in a statement.
