Caroline Keene “Carrie” Kelley was the first full-time female Robin in the history of the Batman franchise after making her appearance in 1989 (Stephanie Brown appearing as Robin in 2004). She made her first appearance in Frank Miller’s Batman: The Dark Knight Returns and Batman: The Dark Knight Strikes Again in an alternate universe where after Jason Todd’s death Bruce retired the cowl and then returns at 55 years old to fight crime and faces opposition from the Gotham City police force and the United States government.

Thirteen year old Carrie is not an orphan like the previous Robins, but seemed to have neglectful parents that are never seen but one those mutter at a point “Didn’t we have a kid”. They are hinted through their dialogue to have once been activists and possible hippies during the 60s and have since become stoners.

Carrie spent her lunch money on a Robin costume after Batman saved her from a group of sadistic Mutant gang members on the night of his return as Batman. She set out to attack petty con-men and find the Batman in hope of becoming his new partner. Carrie uses a slingshot and firecrackers as weapons while wearing green-tinted sunglasses instead of a harlequin mask.
