Comic Book / Robin: Son of Batman

Go To

Robin: Son of Batman is a 2015 ongoing comic book series that's part of the DC You movement, showcasing the current Robin, Damian Wayne, on his own adventures separate from his father, Batman.

Before he became Robin and was still part of the League of Assassins, Damian was tasked to a test of character known as the Year of Blood. But now, after becoming Robin and literally experiencing death for some time, Damian is dead-set on becoming more worthy of his title as Robin and thus, goes on a worldwide trip to return the artifacts he had stolen during the Year of Blood.

Has little to do with the animated film this comic book shares a subtitle with apart from involving the offspring of Batman.


This comic book has examples of the following tropes:

  • The Atoner: Damian is becoming this by returning the items he stole during the Year of Blood.
  • Bat Family Crossover: The seventh issue of this title took part in the Robin War event while its eighth issue dealt with the aftermath.
  • Breather Episode: Issue #8 can be considered one since it takes place after the events of Robin War and was basically Damian telling a story about one of his adventures to Alfred whilst in the middle of a haircut.
  • Continuity Nod: Maya Ducard, a.k.a Nobody II, is after Damian after he killed her father back in the first arc of Batman and Robin in the New 52.
  • Fat Bastard: The first issue has a fat ass king named Abush who captured Goliath and tried to make Damian his adopted son.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Maya Ducard, a.k.a. Nobody II, goes from hunting Damian in the name of revenge against him murdering her father, Nobody I, to joining him. She forgives him later on.

  • Heroic Sacrifice: The Sons of Batman (deformed bastardized humongoloid clones of Damian) give up their lives to save him, Maya, and Goliath in Issue #5.
