A Funeral For Robin In Batman Inc. #9 Preview
We’ve already seen how some of the members of the Bat Family are dealing with the fallout of Damian Wayne‘s death after the events of Batman Inc. #8, but this week we’re going to see the former Robin and son of Batman laid to rest. Batman Inc. #9 written by Grant Morrison will be released tomorrow. BuzzFeed caught up with the writer to talk about the issue that also sees Batman taking on his son’s murderer- a clone of his son. You can click here to read the full interview, but Morrison comments on Damian‘s killer:
He’s a clone of Damian that’s been rapid-aged and genetically enhanced. He’s a kind of super-being. He’s only 2 years old and he has the mentality of a 2-year-old, and we’ll see more of that as the story reaches its end. And that’s kind of his weakness as well as his strength; he hasn’t had the time to grow up and learn lessons, so he’s kind of a destructive force of nature. It’s kind of the negative side of Batman and the negative side of Damian are expressed in this character and he kind of wants to be Batman, to replace him and take over Gotham City and the world. He’s just this crazy 2-year-old kid who wants to have his own way.
We’ve seen him before, as a little baby in a tank while Talia was growing him in a test tube. Readers are going to see that play out as well, since there isn’t just one of these clones. There’s a bunch of them, and they’re all at different stages of development. So yes, he was always going to be a replacement for Damian because she has access to Batman’s DNA, and she’s creating these alternate Batmen. So she’s this woman who’d fallen in love with this man, and now she’s trying to create all these kids in his image so she can control them even if she can’t him. But instead it’s all going wrong; because she’s a super-villain, because she was raised badly herself, she just doesn’t know how to do it.
