TV’s Robin, Burt Ward, Comments on Current Robin Events

Holy Rusted Metal Batman!

It’s a terrible choice to kill off Robin. Why bite the hand that feeds you? ... Robin should only die in people's imaginations! Or in a state of primal ecstasy! -- Burt Ward.

Although it's worth noting that this isn't the first time this has happened, nor is the current Robin even the same character as the one he played in the television show - Wait, did he say in a state of primal ecstasy?

However, just as Dick Grayson has once again reverted to the persona of Nightwing, it seems that Stephanie Brown has similarly been returned to being Spoiler. This is revealed in passing in the recent solicitations for Batman Incorporated: Leviathan Strikes. It reads:
“Guest stars galore! Batman and Spoiler team to face the School of Night while Batman Incorporated travels to a sinister Cold War interrogation facility to face the mind-bending menace of Doctor Dedalus for the last time while the true identity of Leviathan is finally revealed, with shocking consequences for the Dark Knight.”
