You know what, DC? We’re sick and tired of you killing off all our favorite Robins! You did this to Jason, you did this to Damian, and here you are doing it to poor Stephanie! What’s the matter with you? What do you have against joy and happiness?!
Calm down . . . calm down. Okay, so World of Bats has previously covered War Games here. Feel free to talk about that storyline, as well as its dreaded follow-up War Crimes:
I have a very, very weird perspective on War Crimes. It was one of the first books I read in trade when I first started reading comics, and the fact that Joker was MAD at Black Mask meant that Steph really was a Robin. In a weird way, it cemented that Steph was Part of the Legend - that she mattered.
That being said, once I fell in love with Leslie, the story is still really bad.
I’m a big champion of Leslie Thompkins, especially the rebooted version of the character introduced by Mike W. Barr after the Crisis, so yeah, I too am not too thrilled that she was “assassinated” alongside Steph in this arc.
