Prior to the publication of this issue, the fates of Robin and his mother were unclear. DC set up a 1-900 number that readers could dial to vote on Robin's fate for $1.00 per call; the vote to kill Robin narrowly edged out the vote to have him found alive by Batman, resulting in the death of Jason Todd, Robin II.
