BONUS Maskless Tim (becaues his eyes are just too pretty)
Tim Drake finally returns from his imprisonment and Dick’s first instinct is to wrap him in the biggest hug ever. But Tim had been isolated in a cage for months with no human contact and at least some sensory deprivation. So Dick’s hugs which once made him feel warm and safe and wanted and all those squishy happy feelings, just make him feel overwhelmed and trapped. He can’t help flinching as soon as someone touches him and even though being hugged used to be comforting, now it just makes his chest tighten with panic and his skin crawl and his head pound as he tries to cope with all the heightened sensory input. And all he wants is to relax in his brother’s arms and revel in the feeling of blessed human touch after being alone for so long but he just can’t and he hates it.
I’m the only one who thinks that these three should be the protagonists of season 3? I mean, Tim didn’t get as much screen time as I would have liked or deserved, Arsenal was a good subplot at the beginning but then they did it aside and Virgil is a relatively new character who just joined the team
I think would be cool to show a change in Arsenal’s personality (less Jason Todd and more friendly) and how Dick could or could not be an Outsider, who should run the team? Of course Tim, he must be the leader now
Jason usually gets all the credit for being the Rebel Robin, even to the point of being blamed for his own death (what?!).
But this line in the latest Nightwing issue
made me think back to other examples of Robin’s being insubordinate.
There’s Tim Drake’s blatant admission in Teen Titans.
Damian is notorious for disobeying.
If that weren’t proof enough, after Jason suggests ignoring a direct order, Goldie himself clearly stated disobedience was a prerequisite for the role.
So… if we really want to finger-point, Jason was simply following Dick’s bad example, and the others have merely followed suit. Any guesses on how long it will take for Duke to succumb to peer pressure?
the killing of a bird or birds; also, something used to kill birds.
With the latest Injustice 2, Digital First issue (26 December 2017), we finally got Batman carrying a dead Tim Drake in his arms – making the quintet of dead Robins being carried by Batman complete. DC Comics should really stop killing (or apparently killing) the Robins – they are much loved and the shock value of killing off these birds, have been worn extremely thin.

Bruce is a generally unselfish man, and surprisingly unmaterialistic. He is, however, an avid collector of children of the supernatural persuasion.
That is to say, he is a Dad.
Here is a brief summary of his children:
Bruce found the child hovering at the edges of Haly’s Circus, humming a merry tune and luring people in to the circus to watch the show. Practically no one could resist the sweet, blue-eyed, singing child. It didn’t take long for Bruce to realize that Dick was a siren, and was using his powers of persuasion to lure in customers to help keep the circus running, now that two-thirds of their main attraction, The Flying Graysons, had died.
It took even less time for him to bring the child home and teach him to fight crime, because really, who doesn’t want to seek justice through vigilantism? When Dick takes to the rough streets of Gotham, the villains are practically begging him for a beating.
Bruce found Jason in Crime Alley when the boy was in wolf form, gnawing on the tires of the Batmobile. Tugging, pulling, and threatening the pup didn’t work, so Bruce used a hamburger to lure the child away from the tires and all the way home to Wayne Manor.
There was one memorable occasion where the Joker abducted Jason and tried to blow him up, but conveniently did not take into account the full moon. When Bruce arrived to rescue Jason, he found a burning warehouse, a very mutilated and very dead Joker, and a hulking, proud, fully fledged wolf wagging his tail in the light of the full moon.
His wagging didn’t stop, and only intensified when Alfred offered Jason steak as a congratulatory meal when they returned home. Dick had to sing to Bruce the whole night to get him to calm down.
Tim is a direct descendant of The Dracula himself, and essentially stayed at Bruce’s house long enough that one day, the man forgot that he hadn’t adopted Tim. Tim possesses the super strength of the supernatural beings, a genius intellect, and an ethereal beauty about him, when he can be bothered to groom.
It’s difficult to groom when you can’t see yourself in a mirror.
For this reason, Tim usually has deep eye bags, grayish skin, and dresses in Jason’s oversized shirts, except when he has to go to work, when he will borrow one of Bruce’s oversized shirts. He has a deep aversion to blood, and instead subsists on coffee and iron pills. He has opened up a new chain of fortified coffees for vampires under the umbrella of Wayne Foods, and it is a massive hit with the supernatural populace.
Don’t mistake the slight female Wayne as a pushover. As a faerie, Cass is possessive, protective, and deeply attached to her family, and especially to her father, who was thrilled to finally have a daughter.
She has been known to bite anyone who tries to bother her family, even sending one reporter to the hospital because her venom had seeped into the bite wound. In the field, she is a silent terror, gliding across the skies in complete silence until she spots her prey.
The last thing her adversaries hear is the light giggle of a delighted girl before the venom kicks in.
Ten years old, small for his age, and always angry about something, Damian is the result of a very, very, drunk night that Bruce had with an assassin princess. Bruce was particularly surprised when Damian showed up at his house one day saying hello Father, I am your Heir, where is your throne.
As is customary for his demonic ilk, he went on to quickly claim Dick as “his” and everyone else as his enemy, especially Tim. Damian likes hurting villains, receiving hugs and kisses from Dick, and playing with his pets.
He has made a name for himself Gotham with his ruthlessness, and he once opened a portal to hell and chucked Scarecrow into it. The man didn’t reappear for days, and when he did, he ent straight to Arkham and committed himself.
This is another reason why Jack Drake was an awful father. When he worries about what Tim might be doing he decides that sending him away to boarding school (again) is the best course of action. If Jack can pay someone else to watch his son then it’s no longer his problem, right?
