BATMAN’s ‘New Generation of Allies’ Will Give Robin Superpowers

DC Comics, in their January solicitations, have revealed that not only is the most recent Robin, Damian Wayne, returning from the dead, but will have superpowers of his own. Newsarama speculated in an article published on November 10 that Damian could be the herald of “a new generation of allies” for Batman that Batman writer Scott Snyder promised in an interview with the site from last February.

Created by writer Grant Morrison and artist Andy Kubert and debuting in 2006’s “Batman & Son” storyline, Damian Wayne is the biological son of Bruce Wayne and Talia Al Guhl. After Batman’s death in 2008, Damien took over the role of Robin to the new Batman, Dick Grayson (Nightwing and the original Robin). He continued as Robin into the “New 52” company-wide reboot in 2011, but was killed off in 2013.
