It’s not easy being The Boy Wonder. Batman’s gone through so many Robins, you have to wonder why the orphanage keeps letting him take home children who are never heard from again. Most recently, his own son Damian Wayne died saving the city from…something? It was probably a very important threat. It says here he was killed by…his own adult clone. So wow. That’s symbolic. But young Master Wayne is far from the first Robin to eat it on a mission. Stephanie Brown, the first in-continuity female Robin, ate it almost immediately, and Jason Todd, the second Robin ever, got his brains bashed in by the Joker.
So who says Robin’s got a great life with his cool weapons, high-tech motorcycle, and billionaire benefactor? In fact, we discovered the average day is less like being Batman Jr. and more like Kenny from South Park.
