Just curious to see what Comic Vine’s opinion, as a whole, is on the current arc. Who should go and why?

I have never liked Damian and would be okay with dying but I dont think he will. I really am excited to see what happens. I personally think its joker under there.

D. Joker.

He's overstayed his welcome with this crossover, he should be dead from infection with the lack of a face, and the stuff he's pulled off lately is just too much.

Alfred should die, Todd should get his face cut off, and Joker be killed (+)

Tim, he used to be my favorite Robin, but since the new 52 he has been kind of meh. Damian is a fairly young character, so again I doubt that he will die, and he is also Morrison's baby.

you should make another one of these polls with all the characters listed. Batman, Damien, Dick, Jason, Tim, Alfred, Joker, Barbara, Jim, Joker and Harley. Even Titus has been mentioned in places.

Well Damian is already going to die in Batman Inc., so I'm ok with DotF being more of a symbolic title that has to do with the inner Bat family relationship.

@Reignmaker: I don't believe that's official, yet. It's been implied in solicits, yes, but the way they worded it doesn't necessarily mean it's Damian that dies.

I voted Damian if only because I'm a little tired of voting non-answers in polls, and actually of all the people who might actually die, he's the one that I think would be least missed, say, twenty years from now (supposing DC actually keeps New 52 as the real, official universe). He's also, from a more short-term perspective, the one who could die without actually ending any other comic run, because it's not Batman & Damian, and there are other potential Robins (including Harper Row). Do I think he will die? No, but of all of them he makes the most sense.

You're questioning THE JOKER'S ability to survive in the face of logic?

This is the guy so famous for cheating death that some wikis speculate it's a super-power.

Nobody. I feel like killing off any character in this arc would completely cheapen the death. If a character is going to be killed, the arc that kills him/her should revolve mostly around that character. And the only characters that this arc truly revolves around are Batman and Joker - two characters who will not and should not be killed.

The Joker

Damian.

If anyone would have to die, i think it would be Jason.

My little creepy theory is that the Joker will cut his face too and "swap" their identities.

The other members of the Bat-Family arrive and one of them cross the line, thinking he kills the Joker whichi is not the case and could put an end to the Family (at least from Bruce's point of view)

Not really I just think he has been a pretty pointless character to have around.

Yup, not official. 99% sure it's happening though.

Damian is on the cover of Nightwing 17 which happens after DOTF.

That's because it's not happening in DOTF. It's happening in Batman Inc.

I actually REALLY love this point. Not so much because of its context here, but it perfectly sums up one of my hugest Marvel complaints. (Though also because of its context here)

What do you mean? Do you somehow have a copy of DOTF #17? If so, please for the love of god keep the secrets to yourself, I'm just curious to know how you'd get your hands on such a thing.
