(Newser) – We're sorry you had to hear it this way, comic fans, but Robin is about to be grounded. Fan-favorite Damian Wayne will die in Batman Incorporated #8, the New York Post reports in a morning spoiler. "He saves the world. He does his job as Robin. He dies an absolute hero," writer Grant Morrison explains.

For those not up on modern Batman comics, Damian is the 10-year-old son of Bruce Wayne and sometimes nemesis/sometimes love interest Talia al-Ghul. Raised by the League of Assassins, he was originally a violent killer—but has now become a heroic, if not terribly agreeable, sidekick for Batman. "What we did was turn this little monster into a superhero," Morrison says. "He's a little brat, but he's a super-brat."
