Respawn To Appear In Robin #1 – Another Kid Deathstroke?

Josh Williamson tweeted out news of a new character appearing in Robin #1, Respawn. And who seemingly has a connection to Deathstroke, Slade Wilson, who has been in the news a bit this week. Williamson wrote "The new mystery character in the ROBIN ongoing series is named RESPAWN. A NEW deadly force in the fight tournament, their real identity will be a major mystery in our Robin story. Art by Gleb Melnikov! Robin #1 is Respawn's first appearance! Pre-order this week!"

Of course, he also said that Flatline's first appearance would also be in Robin and we saw how that happened with Detective Comics. Respawn isn't the only Kid Deathstroke on Lazarus Island of course, in combat against each other, seemingly with the theme that people have been revived by the Lazarus Pits. Hence "Respawn" I guess. Ravager is also there, and many others, a number of which will be making their first appearance, all under the eye of Mother Soul…
