Batman no longer that bothered when Robin dies

BATMAN will respond to the death of yet another Robin with a nonchalant shrug, it has emerged.

The ornithologically-themed sidekick dies for the umpteenth time next week, causing Batman mild annoyance and a strong sense of deja vu.

A DC spokesman said: “A Robin dies in pretty much every issue, so Batman never gets that attached to them any more, even though this one’s his son.

“His attitude is like ‘no biggie, plenty more Robins out there’. Then he rings up an orphanage.”
