Spoiler (Hugging Robin): "And You're Alive!"
It all ends here! The Joker's staked out scenic Gotham Cathedral as the spot to make his final stand against Batman's allies, and he's made sure no other heroes will interfere with his final revenge. Nightwing's decided that the Joker's actions finally need to be stopped, but will he go too far? And what is the fate of Tim Drake? Will he become the second Robin to die at the hands of the Joker?
Behind the Scenes: In an interview from November 2017, Chuck Dixon and Scott Beatty revealed that it was Joker: Last Laugh that was supposed to lead to the oft-mentioned storyline where Tim Drake became Blue Beetle, and Steph became Robin.
"Beatty: And following that, we were setting up a raft of new titles. Tim Drake would be forced to take on the identity of Blue Beetle - a paid position mentored by a convalescing Ted Kord - in order to take care of his own ailing father."
