"20 years in Gotham, Alfred. We've seen what promises are worth. How many good guys are left. How many stayed that way."
Bruce Wayne to Alfred Pennyworth[src]

Robin was a vigilante and former protégé of Batman. Sometime before 2015, however, he was beaten and killed by the Joker and Harley Quinn, who defaced his suit, now kept in the Batcave.


Death in the family

However, sometime before 2015, Robin was eventually murdered by the Joker and Harley Quinn.[1][2] The psychopathic duo left his damaged Robinsuit graffitied with the sentence "Hahaha joke's on you, Batman" for the devastated Dark Knight to find.[3]

After the chase of Joker, Batman captured Harley Quinn and revealed to her that she was going to be jailed in Belle Reve due to the death of Robin.[2][4]

"Batman wasn't always like that. Don't get me wrong... he was always tough. But over the years, he got harder. I mean, you figure he's seen some things."

A devastated Batman kept Robin's old damaged suit in a glass case in the Batcave to serve as a reminder and fuel for his vigilante activities. Robin's death was also one of the major reasons for Bruce becoming more enraged, hardened and vengeful, and therefore inducing him to take a more hardcore approach in stopping crime.

Right before leaving for Lex Luthor's fundraiser (where he planned to acquire data on Kryptonite), Bruce pauses to look at Robin's suit, reminding himself of why he continues to do what he does, and how taking down Superman will avoid more potential losses.[3]

Joker got a tattoo on his right bicep depicting a dead robin pierced with an arrow.
