Default Uh oh... are they going to kill off Kyle again?

Possibly:

"ONE OF THESE CHARACTERS WILL DIE!" in 21 days.

The only one in that lineup that I could see DC and TPTB wanted to get rid of is Kyle.

Damnit Andrew... I was having a decent day till I saw this LOL

Of the group, it's obvious who's not gonna die. Booster and Harley star in Heroes in Crisis. Cyborg is in two JL books. Unless they pull a fast one on us and he dies in space and is reborn in a new body [which would make redrawing some stuff a reason for entire issues to get scrapped].

So there's whichever Robin that is, likely Tim, Kyle, and Arsenal.

Of the three it's obvious who has a fanbase and who doesn't. Arsenal could die to try and give the GA book a shot of life cause it would surely rock Ollie. Right now there's also two nearly identical Robins, one of which has been re-costumed and retrofitted into a shell of his original interpretation like three times now since the New52. Then there's Kyle... who's finally looking like one of the boys with his more classic badge, back to his most iconic suit, etc. I just don't see him dying serving the rest of the books. Where Arsenal dying would rock Green Arrow and potentially Red Hood, Tim dying would rock the Bat-family, Kyle's death would likely only be referenced in one or two books. And with no GLC title in sight, if it was a throwaway death in Heroes in Crisis... I'll be pissed.

please if they do kill him off he'll be back before next year, we fans are hip to the games DC and Marvel likes to play every year now and it doesn't bother us anymore

Will they? There won't be any platform for him since Morrison turned his back on him.

Actually, there is one, regressing the character 24 years in the process:

Hey look at that! A new place to hang his hat! Maybe even rekindle an old romance?

That I wouldn't mind. He always fit best with Donna.

Last time they put Kyle in Titans, I bought all the issues...and felt like I could easily have skipped them. I'm not biting this time, unless I hear from trusted sources that it is really good...then I might pick up a TPB (especially if, like last time, his tenure is so short it might all fit in one collection).

And this time it isn't even Geoff Johns pulling the strings. Fuck.

As long as they aren't pretending like they've never met each other (ala, Guy and Ice in the last JLI) I'd give it a go.

If the team was more like the one before the No Justice thing I'd be more interested. However Donna is still there so that's a plus.

Calling it now: Kyle will somehow be effected by the energy from the Source Wall in this series!

Maybe Kyle and Donna won't remember each other at first, but eventually will as part of a story. It's right there for the writers to do.

Yeah, there is that. But downgrading him to a Titans team of Donna, Beast Boy, Raven and nobody cares still hurts somehow.

Better that than White Lantern 2.0. DC only has two choices with Kyle. Everyman Kyle who has relationships with the DCU cast. Or Godmode Kyle.
