With Tomasi writing the Robin Rises story arc, DC Universe has been teasing the return of a Robin and the getting the hopes up of readers and teasing the hopes against all the fans who love Damian Wayne.
Everyone knew that Batman was going to get another Robin sooner or later, and there was even some speculation that Carrie Reilly or even Stephanie Brown would be the next Robin, again reprising their roles from long ago. Those characters were classics and have so far been essential characters in the Batman universe. Carrie as Damian’s former tutor and Steph in the Batman Eternal comic series.
However, neither is the case. Tomasi has shared the cover on his twitter page and it is the one and only Damian Wayne!
Anyone following the Robin Rises story arc knows that Damian Wayne is currently on Apokolips and it seems, that is going to have some huge ramifications as the solicitation for BATMAN AND ROBIN #38 – as well as the cover – reveal that he will be boasting some super powers of his own.
There is no word yet on what kind of powers he’ll have yet, but by the cover, I think it’s safe to say he’ll be bulletproof. You know what, I think I’m going to cry when I read this family reunion. No, I’m totally going to cry and fan girl all over this and be a total chick.
Oh, and don’t forget to check out these fun Tweets from Tomasi’s twitter.
