Little did I know when I made this cover that Damian Wayne would be killed off before I even had a chance to post it. While I do think that it has been problematic that Batman has had so many sidekicks, I have to admit that I was just warming up to the kid before Grant Morrison decided to permanently close out his story arc... or did he? Morrison's time on Batman has apparently ended with the revelation of numerous Damian clones, leaving the door for a return quite open, it would seem.
Marvel's Age of Ultron event ended with Galactus showing up in the Ultimate Universe, and some are already suspecting that this will indeed signal the end to that line of comics. I can see that happening, but if it does I am sure there will be some elements that carry over to the mainstream Marvel Universe. The top of that list is Miles Morales, I just can't see that character going away no matter what happens to the Ultimate line.
