Have some random Batboys speaking other languages

“Okay, wait,” Garfield said. “You each speak like a dozen other languages?”

The Batboys shared a look and shrugged. “Not that many,” Dick said, “but sure.”


Garfield grinned. “Cool! Could you say something?”

Tim elbowed Jason.

Red Hood rolled his eyes. “Todos ustedes me vuelven loco. ¿Por qué he venido aquí?

Li'anah ‘iidha kan ealayna 'an nueania, thuma tafeal 'aydanaan,” Damian spat.

“Boys,” Dick snapped. “Če se ne obnašate, boste odšli. Tim? Ti si na vrsti.”

Tim took a deep breath. “Mínzhǔ? Mínzhǔ. Mínzhǔ bùshì zhèxiē rén xūyào de, dìyù, shènzhì bùshì tāmen xiǎng yào de. Měiguó yīzhí shìtú zài guójiā jiànlì mínzhǔ guójiā yì gè shìjì, érqiě hái méiyǒu yīcì gōngzuò. Zhèxiē guójiā méiyǒu zhīchí mínzhǔ de zuì jīběn de jīshí. Xiǎo shìqíng, “wǒmen yīnggāi kuānróng nàxiē bùtóngyì wǒmen de rén”. “Wǒmen yīnggāi róngrěn nàxiē chóngbài yǔ wǒmen bù tóng de shén de rén!” Nàgè, jìzhě yīnggāi bù huì zǒngtǒngle!

Nǐ gěi tāmen, tāmen huì gēnzhe. Nà jiùshì wǒ jìnlái dì dìfāng.” He winced. “I think I might’ve gotten some of that wrong. It’s been a while.”

Garfield looked up at him in awe. “Teach me.”


Garfield huffed and wandered off.

“Was that…,” Jason rubbed his mouth, trying not to laugh and failing. “Was that the freaking monologue from Call of Duty?”

“You memorized that thing?” Dick asked.

Tim shrugged and smirked. “Maybe. Maybe not.”

Jason (Spanish) – You all drive me crazy. Why did I come here?

Damian (Arabic) – Because if we have to suffer, then so do you.

Dick (Slovenian) – If you don’t behave, you leave. Tim? Your turn.

Tim (Chinese) - Democracy? Democracy. Democracy is not what these people need, hell, it’s not even what they want. America has been trying to install democracies in nations for a century and it hasn’t worked one time. These countries don’t have the most basic building blocks to support a democracy. Little things like, “We ought to be tolerant of those that disagree with us.” “We ought to be tolerant of those who worship a different god than us!” That, “A journalist ought to be able to disagree with the president!” And you think you can just march into these countries - based on some fundamentalist, religious principles - drop a few bombs, topple a dictator and start a democracy? Huh. Give me a break. People don’t want freedom. They want boundaries and rules… Protection… From invaders, and from themselves. People need a leader who can give them both the support and constraints to keep chaos at bay. You give them that, and they’ll follow. And that’s where I come in.

Apologies for any inaccuracies. Unfortunately, I only have access to google translate right now.

My family asked me the other day how I keep all the Robins straight. I thought long and hard about it, because I wasn’t about to admit that sometimes it’s even hard for me to tell, but I ultimately settled on telling them this:

  • Dick Grayson is usually seen with messy hair. This is probably the best way to tell who he is, in my opinion, since his outfit and coloring can vary significantly from one artist to another. Some things to look for are his green gloves which he wears in 95% of his appearances. In earlier works, his scrappy hair was combed to the side, he had 4-6 yellow latches on the front of his shirt, and his hair appeared more blue than black. His mask is always black and rounded at the edges.
  • Jason Todd is typically seen with shorter, well-kept hair which typically frames his forehead. He adopted Dick’s outfit, which can make telling the two apart pretty difficult, especially if Jason’s in combat and you can’t tell how his hair is styled. His mask changes depending on the artist’s interpretation - it may be black, green, or red; it may have rounded or spiked edges. Artists sometimes depict Jason as having broader shoulders than the other Robins and, in his post-revival arc, having white in his hair, those these are less common markers.
  • Tim Drake is probably the easiest for me to identify. Some of his big tell-tale markers include the color of his gloves which are black rather than green in most modern adaptations and his hair which is usually slicked back or in a buzzcut style. His outfits are primarily red with splashes of black and yellow/orange to accent his look - a pleasant nod to his future Red Robin persona. Little to no green is apparent in his outfit, and this is important. The only skin you’ll be able to see on him is his face and, on rare occasions, the crook of his elbow, making him appear the most reserved. His mask is usually black and spiked, but not always.
  • Damian Wayne is tiny and feisty. He is considerably shorter than all the other Robins and has way more of a baby-face. His hair is spiked and he can usually be seen wearing a scowl which appears to be cemented to his face. His outfit is similar to Tim’s in many ways, but Damian’s is more focused on the color black (rather than red) and his cape includes a hood, something completely foreign to all previous Robin outfits. Speaking of capes, his canon cape is spiked at the end, though many fan artists neglect to add this in. His mask is always green and spiked.

I really, really want to know how you guys tell the Robins apart! Please reply with any additions or alterations that you can think of!
