The new code name is fine I suppose. Sort of defeats the purpose, but whatever. How he got the name made me laugh out loud though. It’s a pathetic explanation and Tim latching onto it the way he did made him seem less brilliant than he has always been written in the past.
Also, in what universe is a drake lethal?
Tim has been a fan favorite for decades now. Why is he so often ignored or mistreated by the publisher? He carried a solo title for 16 years and that’s no easy feat. I can think of no other sidekick in DC who managed that in a solo book. Seems like the dude would get more love from creative teams in comics and on screen.
He’s the only Robin (IMO) that has a backstory that translates to the screen easily. Damian would require hours of Batman movies to properly set up and introduce. Jason (as Robin anyway) would be painfully boring and whiny. Dick has been done, and the whole child acrobat in the circus thing seems like a hard sell to a modern movie/tv audience.
Tim seems so perfect and easy…and again…people love the guy! Why not write him better and give him some (at least animated) movie love? Just a rant as I reread his solo series and remember how much I loved him as a teenager. Poor Tim.
