Harper Row Will Not Be Robin

At least Snyder is playing coy on the subject.


Batman writer Scott Snyder has addressed the rumors surrounding his character Harper Row.

He has played down suggestions that she will become DC Comics' next Robin following the recent death of Bruce Wayne's son Damian Wayne.



"I'm not going to give away what happens... whether she would be Robin or not," Snyder told MTV Geek.

"I feel badly that everybody is assuming that just because she's there right afterwards, we were trying to position her as the new Robin. But I can tell you honestly, everybody reading this... she's not designed to be Robin."

Row was introduced by Snyder in Batman #7 when she saved a wounded Bruce Wayne on the verge of death.

"What the creation of Harper Row was really about was creating a lens for me personally that I could relate to in Gotham, that would be like, a kid, or somebody struggling," the writer continued.

"As a young person, you're trying to make ends meet, you're in this place that's really tough, nobody believes in you and you have this incredible superhero in town that's doing these things that inspire you."

Stupid question, since I'm not sure if this is a serious rumor or not: isn't the Spoiler identity a direct reaction to the Cluemaster lineage? Not that it would surprise me to see it still happen, just wondering, and maybe I have it wrong anyway.

This kinda feels like one of those answers that was specifically designed to downplay the fact that Harper Row hasn't been getting the type of response that Snyder or DC thought she would get.
