Batman's sidekick Robin is to be killed off in the next issue of the comic, say publishers DC.
In an interview with the New York Post, writer Grant Morrison confirmed that the latest Boy Wonder would die in tomorrow's edition.

"He saves the world. He does his job as Robin. He dies an absolute hero."
This is not the first time that Robin has died. Jason Todd was killed by the Joker in 1988 while serving as Batman's aide.
Damian Wayne, the 10-year-old son of billionaire Bruce Wayne, is now playing the role of Robin in the Batman Incorporated series.
His mother is Talia, the beautiful daughter of one of Batman's deadliest enemies, Ra's al Ghul - played by Liam Neeson in Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy.
DC Comics say that he will be killed by a genetic clone of himself
