Planning the Hit on Stephanie Brown

Posted July 22, 2011

At the Auckland Writers and Readers Fest, writer Dylan Horrocks talked about being in the meetings where  the death of Stephanie Brown, the superhero Spoiler and a female Robin, was planned, :  “As well as a Dan DiDio impersonation, he told the audience that the writers were told two things about the Batman: War Games crossover event they were writing, that it would ‘involve some kind of Gang War in Gotham’ and that ‘Spoiler was gonna die.'” (via DCWomenKickingAss)
