By now you should be aware that Damian Wayne is dead. The most recent Robin and son to Batman died a brutal death. We've been all waiting for his possible return or resurrection. Could that day be coming soon?
Yes and no.
DC Comics has announced Damian's return in a four-issue miniseries written and drawn by Andy Kubert this October.
DAMIAN: SON OF BATMAN will flash-forward to the potential future where Damian takes on the mantle of the Bat.
But isn't he dead?
We all know that no one really stays dead in comics. Also, this is and, always has been, a potential future.
In a NY Post exclusive, Kubert states his fondness for the future first seen in BATMAN #666.
"Basically what I'm doing is exploring the path Damian has taken to become Batman. I think readers will see him in a different light than before."
This still doesn't mean Damian will return in the current comics. But it also doesn't mean that he won't. As great as BATMAN #666 was and the world we were introduced to, this should be a great read. We may not know what the present may hold but this gives us a chance to see what the future could possibly sort of give us.
