COMICS: Scott Snyder Coy On Harper Row Rumors

Will she or won't she? Writer Scott Snyder isn't giving precise answers on the question of whether Harper Row will be the next Robin following the death of Damian Wayne.






The cover and solicitation to Detective Comics #21 definitely has Scott Snyder creation Harper Row in a costume and seemingly fighting beside the Caped Crusader but Snyder downplays talk of her assuming the mantle of Robin in an interview with MTV Geek.

"I'm not going to give away what happens…whether she would BE Robin or not. I feel badly that everybody is assuming that just because she's there right afterwards, we were trying to position her as the new Robin. But I can tell you honestly, everybody reading this…she's not designed to be Robin."

Personally, I don't think Snyder would do something quite so obvious as have Harper become the next Robin. His history as writer on Batman leaves a trail of left turns and surprise revelations. Plus, for a comic book writer, introducing a new character that can stand the test of time and have a bit of longevity is the ultimate coup. Having her become Robin would seem like a fickle decision. Also, if you look at her 'costume', it's something more closely akin to Catwoman, who may be the next auxiliary Bat-character to step into the spotlight if the clue on the cover to Justice League of America #5 isn't a red herring [9 rose petals on the coffin=9 lives?]. Hat-tip to @wadeAconway. Either way with Batman having a series of team-ups in Batman and Robin for the next 5 months and a year long origin story set to play out in the titular Batman title starting in July, we'll have to see exactly where the Harper Row saga truly begins. Does it indeed occur in Detective Comics? Would be an odd place to start considering it's Snyder's creation.
