Damian Wayne

The fourth main Robin has a different style of upbringing and a very similar name.

Batman only has two real considerations for a love interest, they being Catwoman and Talia Al’Ghul. As complicated as the former can be, Bruce may have a child with the latter.

Which takes nothing away from Damian, seeing as how Talia raised him and he was trained by the league of assassins. The young Wayne is no slouch when it comes to combat. Being more ruthless than his father at times, assassins tend to kill people.

And then add in the punk kid mentality and Damian can can be either a little jerk, or smugly clever.

For instance, in one of the first dozen issues of Batman and Robin, Damian was kidnapped and tied to a chair by Professor Pyg, and instead of being stereotypical sidekick scared and like, holy gee how am i going to get out of this. Damian just looked around and said something to the effect of, when I get out of this I’m going to start by punching you right in the face. I got a kick out of that scene.

Also, having Damian team-up with Supergirl at one point lead to some funny results if my mind serves me right.

Unfortunately, Damian is currently dead in the comics. Though Batman is on a journey to try and either find him or bring him back, I don’t know what’s going to happen. DC Comics is advertising some sort of return of Robin, but there is no guarantee that Damian is the one coming back. If it isn’t, there will be a part where I think that’s a little disappointing.
