Grant Morrison killed Batman and Robin.
Batman came back, but it seems as though this Robin is dead for good. There have been a few different deaths of Batman’s greatest ally, but none have been as meaningful to one single writer as this one has. For those not following along, comics superstar Grant Morrison created Damian Wayne, the son of Bruce Wayne and Talia al’Ghul, who took to the role of Robin with arrogance and, in the end, humbly sacrificed himself as a hero.
By fans, he was hated at first, then loved, and now the tears over his death are many.
In honor of the passing of this most recent Robin, I was given the opportunity to talk to Grant Morrison about his landmark run with Batman and Robin.
Bryan Young: I’ve read that your original plan was to kill Damian after just four issues?
