    Morrison killing off Damian to end his run?

    I feel pretty strongly that this will be the case. The solicits for the Batman family #18's all reference the repurcussions of a tragedy, which would have happened the month before. The month before would line up perfectly with Batman, Inc #8 (which was a Second Wave title) and would be 4 issues from the end of Morrison's Batman, Inc and, by extension, his Batman run... which started by introducting Damian. The kicker here is that, in those solicits, the tragedy seems to reach as far as World's Finest... and at this point in continuity Damian is the ONLY member of the Bat-family that Huntress has even met.

    I think it's a pretty solid case, but no one seems to be concerned about it on the internet. What do you guys think?

    I bet he dies, but his death is faked and he goes somewhere else out of the reach of Bruce and Talia to end their war.

    No way he stays dead. Too many people like him too much, someone will bring him back. Someone else will turn him evil, someone will fix that. It's the nature of comics, and when you've had as much of the spotlight as Damian has, it's inescapable. Yes, it might wreck Morrison's arc, but other writers won't be able to resist.

    Batman Inc won't be at issue 11 by the time the 18s come out. It's 9 issues behind the first wave books.

    Well, killing Damian off would get me to buy it...
    My first novel is up Amazon Kindle at http://www.amazon.com/In-My-Brothers...8184334&sr=1-1

    And now in paperback, too!

    I thought Batman Inc. was outside of the new DC52 continuity?

    I hope not. He's the best Bat character to have debuted in the 18 years I've been reading, so I'd hate to see him go or no longer be Robin.

    No, it's part of it.

    Yeah, he's a great character. But I'm not entirely sold on his greatness when not being written by Morrison.

    Didn't he say he was supposed to die at the end of Batman & Son anyway, and his popularity convinced Morrison to keep him around?
