His sacrifice saves the lives of hundreds in the city, but to do so Tim Drake will have to make the ultimate sacrifice… or so it would appear.

“War of the Robins” begins as Damian assembles all of Batman‘s former sidekicks together (minus, of course, a still un-rebooted Stephanie Brown) and announces his plans to defeat each of them proving himself to be the best Robin. He begins, not surprisingly with his most heated rival, Tim Drake.
