Trying to stop his mother from spreading chaos throughout Gotham and the world, the Boy Wonder makes his last stand against the forces of Leviathan. Of the many members in the Bat-family, Morrison chooses Nightwing to be the one who gets to have a final interaction with Robin before the end, and it is pure gold. Damian is finally at peace with himself, and the convoluted emotions inside him have receded, which allows him the opportunity to make his last actions those of a true hero.

Strangely enough, Batman is mostly absent from the story, which in hindsight is the right move as not to take the attention away from the real star of the issue. Chris Burnham does not hold back, and makes Robin's sacrifice as cruel and mean as possible; it is graphic indeed. Jason Masters provides a brief collaboration for Red Robin's sequence, which is superbly choreographed. Whether this is a true change in the status quo remains to be seen; I tend to believe this is not a permanent situation, and before a year's time, we'll see Damian again. Great tale, though.
