TDK Trilogy Epilogue: Robin (Damian Wayne) by kinjamin TDK Trilogy Epilogue: Robin (Damian Wayne) by kinjamin
Ok this is probably where I lose some people. A.) Because there's a lot of Damian haters out there.. and B.) Because what I propose in this particular piece is a little outlandish. Namely, Talia being pregnant AND her baby somehow miraculously surviving.

But Little D is a personal favorite of mine, and I also like to entertain the idea that once the credits rolled on TDKR, the audience can continue the story no matter what. And the potential that Damian poses in the Nolanverse was just too juicy of a subject to not explore.

Some notes:

- At first I regretted that Bruce isn't represented in the piece. But then I found the fact of his absence kind of fitting. If Damian was going to break free from his programming, he'd be doing it either on his own or with the help of John Blake Batman. Plus, it makes this piece a kind of polar opposite of the Huntress piece, who is very much a product of being Bruce's daughter
- Purposely kept Talia's possible survival kind of vague. For people that hope for it, then she probably did. For people that don't buy it, then fine.
- Die-hards will probably recognize the remaining members of the League of Shadows
- Shiva is again being played by the wifey
- The sword Damian is carrying is a Philippine blade called the Kampilan. It looks crazy, but it's very real.
- Oh, and for those who are bigger fans of Jason and Tim, don't worry, I have plans for them, too. (Later)

More coming. Stay tuned.

Also if this is the first time seeing this, the first two character one-sheets with Huntress & JGL Batman are here:

I see Shiva, Bronze Tiger, don't recognize the guy with the bow... and that's still only three. Where's number 4?

Nice. I've been wondering though. You have most of the characters end up with modest fates. I do like some that have good endings, but with Damian I can't help but wonder if you'll put in his meeting with his girlfriend and eventual wife Mari Grayson/Nightstar. 

I figured since you have Damian fighting on the side of good and how his brother Terry is with Dana that you might consider Blake's Batman having reclaimed his name to meet a beautiful alien princess by the name of Koriand'r.

I feel since you have Karen Starr aka Powergirl on board that you could do the same for Mari. You also seem to have two other epilogues with Man of Steel that include the Legion as well as Doomsday. I know the Nolanverse style your using may not have room for aliens but I really would like to see that.

Love this! I've always kind of wondered if this could happen...
themandorian Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2014
damian wayne needs a mask but other then that awesome

That is a seriously awesome costume, I never thought a Robin outfit could look that good on screen with all those colours, seriously well done! :)

My favorite Robin! Nice work

Very impressive. :)

I really like these epilogues!
Lalbiel Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2013
Who are the Assassins training him? I know the Woman is Shiva, and I think the others are Bronze Tiger and... Merlyn???
kinjamin Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2013  Professional Filmographer
yeah!  I think you're the only one ot guess Merlyn correctly -- good job! wanted to depict him being in the jungle for a long while.
Lalbiel Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2013
Interesting, are you a fan of the "Arrow" Merlyn?
Lalbiel Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2013
Here's something that you probably haven't noticed. "The Pit" in TDKR is the Lazarus Pit, for it healed Bruce and he rose from it, also, there is the joke about Ra's being immortal which you probably did notice.
TheDawrkKnight Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2013
Dude that Robin outfit is SICK! This and the arkham city are my favorites the arkham city works for anyone except Damian since his represents his middle eastern heritage with the traditional robin colors, so be should be the only one to have this and the other three can have the arkham city one or a mix of the dark knight batsuit with arkham city robin suit.
SasukeFlockaUchiha Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2013
There hasn't been a Robin yet I've hated lol
T-R-E-V Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2013
My second fave. :D
jesusmonger Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2013
So who are the other's in the picture of Damien's training? It looks like Bronze Tiger, Lady Shiva, but I'm not sure who the bowman is supposed to be nor can I find the fourth. I love these, by the way.
hulkpants Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2013
Pretty clever.
TheDarkRedbird Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2013
Can't wait to see what you may do for Jason. He's my favorite character in DC comics and... -whispers- to be honest, I'd like to see more fanart about him and Helena, but hey...

Anyways, yeah, I'm liking these things! Keep up the great job mate, you're absolutely awesome.
Selenium79 Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2013
To me, Damian Wayne is the more interesting Robin. Recent stories about his relationship with his father are so strong and fascinating, sometimes funny.
I really like the way you summed up Damian's past, and the way you dressed him as an assassin. Very beautiful panel.
misfit819 Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2013
You are Genius with this stuff! Seriously it's lose and yet totally fits in with the more down-to-earth approach Nolan takes, while tying all the original characters together.

Keep up the awesome work!

Is this a real character from the comics? Hmm. I never knew. I know you are working within a certain story line and have to make some things fit. But when Bruce takes the bomb away, Selina and Gordon are still there RIGHT by the truck, and Talia was certainly in no condition to be sneaking away... My first thought that was maybe some of her left over men got her out of there quickly and quietly while Selina and Gordon were watching the bomb detonate perhaps. But then I thought back to the League of Shadows, "deception and theatricality", perhaps Talia was pretending to be more injured than she actually was and though, I still doubt it would have been as quick as if she had help, she could have gotten away from the truck, again while Selina and Gordon were talking to Bruce, then watching him fly away with the bomb, and then ultimately watching the bomb go off. So few people knew her involvement in everything I'm sure an injured woman could have gotten off of the island quickly once everything was up and running again. Just keeping a low profile, because most certainly Gordon would have spread the news about her ("the woman known as Miranda Tate") was really behind everything. But maybe the National Guard or other army people didn't know, and she could have changed her appearance. I am really enjoying these little comics of yours, they get me thinking. Especially this one, with all the possibilities. Oh, and I loved at the end that Blake tried to help him instead of condemn him, though I think that Blake would never do that to a child. Definitely search him for weapons, poisons, and other sharp objects, but I think that he would for sure try to help him... Now I'm off to read more!

So you suspected Damian would be in the Nolanverse, too?
GrafiteeSon Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Lazarus Pit, 'nuff said!

robinjr Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2013
love the piece, i had an idea that would potentially flow better with the movie and would only require the top two panels to be edited, instead of talia being found pregnant and having the child somehow also survive that chase and fall in her belly, use the comic idea in which immediately after the baby is conceived he is put in a test tube(for lack of a better term) and having the baby sent across the world to train with her people in case she failed. this would effectively explain how he exists and talia showed no signs of pregnancy! just trying to help!
Zuko-Halliwell Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
I like the idea that Talia survived, because I didn't like that, in the movie, she died believing she'd won. I wanted her to die knowing that she'd lost; that all her work, all her father's work, was for nothing.
NamelessManic Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013
Bit of a stretch, robin just doesn't translate well. But that's just my opinion. Still thought about the what if Tali survived. Never did see her again... suspicious!

i love the backstory that you gave Damian
spiderxand Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2012
I thought she did die?
kinjamin Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2012  Professional Filmographer
Well for the sake of having a Damian Wayne, I kept it vague. Plus I mean who are we kidding? That was a super fake death shudder.
spiderxand Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012
True. Compared to the previous deaths we've seen in the DK trilogy, that was pretty much weak sauce.
aditya-dragon-iyer Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
I still thought she survived as her death is just implied not confirmed
JohnnyCopeland Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2012
I bet it would be extremely hard to find a kid actor who could play Damian Wayne.
daw327 Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2013
What about Brandon SooHoo? (Tropic Thunder, Supah Ninjas, Incredible Crew, etc.)
JediOrSithAH Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2012
Yeah, but we can dream, can't we?

Love this! I wonder how Damian's Robin suit would look like?
CaptainAmerica13 Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2012
All of these are awesome. I really hope you do Nolanize Jason Todd. I think you'd do awesome with that.

Is that Bronze tiger?
kinjamin Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2012  Professional Filmographer
yes it is! I'm glad SOMEONE noticed.
mr-redx Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2012  Student General Artist
And is the other guy Apache Chief?
kinjamin Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2012  Professional Filmographer
ah actually no.. it's Merlyn. But instead of pointy hair I figured he was out in the jungle, his hair growing out.
mr-redx Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2012  Student General Artist
Oh, sorry. With his shading and and his facial features kinda through me off. I see it now.

Wait! You said there were four remaining members, so if he Bornze Tiger and Talia are three of them, WHO"S THE FORTH?!
kinjamin Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2012  Professional Filmographer
Ha - I purposely kept that open in the event people want Talia to still be alive. But if not, maybe her sister Nyssa? it's up to whoever. Maybe one day I'll address it.
Kerevon Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2012
This is an excellent version. Love the blend of Ra's armor and the classic Robin outfit. That said, her spine was bent completely the wrong way. That would probably kill her, and it would DEFINITELY miscarry any pregnancy. Very cool idea, but unfeasible even in the Nolanverse.
Rouge-Fox Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2012  Student Writer
I love the costume you've given him and the story really suits the tone
