Whether it's through Comicvine's coverage, the exclusive announcement and preview on the New York Post, the advertisement that pops up on DC Comic's website, or all of the hints that have been leading up to this, most of you probably know that Damian Wayne will die this Wednesday in Batman Incorporated #8. While in the middle of my own grieving process, I can't help but wonder how the hell Batman will be able to live through this. I remember posting in an older thread that had asked what it would take to push Batman over the edge and break his no-killing rule, I thought the death of his son Damian would do it. When Jason Todd died, Bruce was broken. He still acknowledges it as his greatest failure and it almost forced him to give up his cape and cowl. Now with his biological son facing the same fate, how in the world can Bruce even begin to cope? We've all seen the solicit for Batman and Robin #20 that mentions that Batman is pushing the brink of insanity due to the tragedy that has befallen the whole family. Obviously that can't just be the end of Batman. So my question still stands, how is Bruce going to survive the death of his son?
What do you guys think? And how do you feel about Damian's death in general? (to summarize, it personally saddens me deeply, but I know Grant will do his character justice, and I'm glad he is the one killing him off because he is his creator and had planned on doing it much earlier. Here's hoping we'll see the Son of Batman return relatively soon!)
