[TV] Burt Ward Says DC Shouldn't Kill Off Robin

They plan to do it soon...
TMZ reports that DC Comics is set to kill the Damian Wayne version of Robin in the next issue of Batman Incorporated series and Burt Ward (who played Robin in the 60s TV show) is not happy with the decision.
He said: "Holy self-inflicted wound! Not good for corporate profits! It's a terrible choice to kill off Robin. Why bite the hand that feeds you? ... Robin should only die in people's imaginations! Or in a state of primal ecstasy!"
DC previously killed the Jason Todd version of the character in 1988 when fans voted to have him die. Todd eventually came back to life.
Ward added: "Every youngster realizes that he or she is too young to drive and they are not big like Batman. So, they all yearn to be Robin who gets to RIDE WITH BATMAN AND FIGHT WITH BATMAN!"
