Out this Wednesday is Grant Morrison's Batman Incorporated #8 where it's just been confirmed that a major character gets killed off.
The New York Post let the cat out of the bag - perhaps to get the bird - as it's revealed that Robin Damian Wayne will find his death at the hands of a burtal enemy.
"He saves the world. He does his job as Robin,” Grant Morrison told the Post. “He dies an absolute hero.”
The cover for Batman Incorporated #8 recently hit the net suggesting Robin's demise, so this is not all that a surprise.
Regarding whether Damian will stay dead - as this is comics - or if there will be another new Robin, Morrison offered, "You can never say never in a comic book . . . Batman will ultimately always have a partner.”
Damian is the son of Bruce Wayne and Talia al Ghul.
Following the cover image, there's another spoiler included in the article.
Batman arrives too late to save him.
