deaths in comics has become common place and don't carry the weight it used to.  as for Damian, he was just finding his place in the Batman universe. 
Agreed.  It's always the drama behind HOW they die, knowing full well that some twist could bring them back if necessary.  This is a very informative post by my friend, +Mark Hughes, however!  Thanks!
