Synopsis for "Did Robin Die Tonight?"

In a rooftop confrontation, the Joker manages to shoot Robin before making a getaway attempt. The media thinks that the young hero is dead, but although he has survived, Batman forbids him to become Robin again.

The anniversary of the death of Batman's parents arrives some weeks later, and he makes his annual visit to Crime Alley to pay his respects. The alley is remarkably quiet - it seems word of this regular visit has got around the criminal fraternity. Despite this, Batman discovers that a young kid named Jason Todd has stolen the tires from the Batmobile. Retrieving his property, Batman is persuaded not to hand Todd over to the police or social services. Instead, Jason is taken to Fay Gunn's School For Boys where, once Batman has left, he meets a hostile reception.
