Gotham City is one of the most dangerous cities in the DC Universe. Batman has dedicated his life to fighting crime. Over the years he’s had Robin as a sidekick, but there have actually been several different people behind Robin’s mask. The biggest danger used to be having to go out in public in short-shorts and pixie boots. Now the biggest threat is the fact you will eventually die when you take on the mantle of the Boy Wonder.
In Batman #16, the Dark Knight realizes his old enemy Bane will be coming to Gotham, seeking revenge, after Batman’s attack on Santa Prisca. Batman asked his former Robins to leave town and stay out of the fight. Of course, they decide not to follow this order. Before we get into what happened in Batman #16, let’s look at the previous times the different Robins have died.
There will be spoilers for Batman #16.
