The New York Post revealed the full gatefold cover of Batman and Robin #19 this morning, and it really made us go "WTF?!"  The cover reveals that Carrie Kelley, the female Robin introduced in Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns, will be making her first official New 52 appearance next week.  Kelley was the first female character to become Robin, although exiled character Stephanie Brown was the first girl to become Robin in mainstream continuity. 

According to the article, writer Pete Tomasi "has plans for the character", and that her appearance wouldn't be a one off stunt.  Tomasi states that Kelley has ties to the deceased Damian Wayne.  She also quickly takes up the Robin costume at a costume party, although it appears it's just a nod for fans.  

Of course, this doesn't sync up with popular fan speculation that Scott Snyder's Harper Row character will be eventually taking on the Robin mantle.  Knowing DC, they'll probably have to duke it out in a mud wrestling match or find some way to sully the fact that they're well on their way to introducing a new longterm female sidekick for the Dark Knight.
