Batman & Robin 1-6

Issue #1: 12
Issue #2: 4
Issue #3: 9
Issue #4: 9
Issue #5: 6
Issue #6: 2
12 + 4 + 9 + 9 + 6 + 2 = 42

42 times so far I have wanted to see Damien Wayne accidentally get run over by the Batmobile.  In the last entry, I discussed Jason Todd and his role as Red Hood.  Jason was voted off the bat-island because he was not popular with fans.
Damien is 50 times worse than Jason ever was as Robin.  I thoroughly dislike this character.  But...I can't wait for the next issue.  I can't wait because I really enjoy Peter Tomasi's writing.  Infinitely superior to Grant Morrison's drivel.  I also can't wait, because part of me WANTS to see Damien ran over by the Batmobile.

I would also like to see Damien become less of a jackwad.
This is a great series, truly.  Sure, disliking the character of Damien Wayne as Robin is one thing, but it's also pretty great to see how Batman and Alfred react to this little psycho.  Six issues in, and the storyline is still rolling.  Now I have to wait a month.  AARRGHH!

I do like the way other characters feel free to tell Damien to shut the funk up. Still, I gave up on the series because of the little jerk.

I'd like to see a crossover where Sinestro visits Gotham, and after hearing Damien lip off, just launches him into space with the ring and then releases him there. Bye Damien!
