First they brought back the 2nd Robin (Jason Todd), now they’re apparently reviving the aptly named Spoiler aka the 4th Robin. I’ve said it time and time again (and I’ll keep on saying it) these resurrections are killing comics. They not only trivialize the characters’ deaths, they simultaneously erase all the loss, doubt, and regret felt by those they left behind.

If everyone can come back to life, what’s the point of even having specialists like Ra’s al Ghul or Solomon Grundy? They might as well just get it over with and resurrect Batman’s parents & give him a happy-go-lucky personality.
