DC Comics Reveals That Batman Lost and Gained A Robin Sidekick In One Week!
Damian Wayne and Tim Drake DC Comics Spoilers From Teen Titans and Young Justice As Batman #100 Joker War Finale Looms!
In Teen Titans Annual #2 (full spoilers here), Damian Wayne relinquished the symbol, costume and name of Robin in spectacular fashion.
That happened last week on August 25 / 26, 2020.
In Young Justice #18 (full spoilers here), Tim Drake relinquished the symbol, costume and name of Drake in low-key fashion and in an even more subdued manner reclaimed the Robin symbol, costume and name.
That happened this week on September 1 / 2, 2020.
That means that Tim Drake’s Drake persona only lasted 10 issues of Young Justice, not even a year, after debiting in Young Justice #8 (full spoilers here). The Drake costume lasted even less time as its on-cover debut happened with Young Justice #9 (full spoilers here), but its in-comic debut occurred in Young Justice #10 (full spoilers here).
I am also hoping some variation of iconic Batman artist Norm Breyfogle’s mock up for a Tim Drake Robin costume (above) may be freshened up for modern audiences for Damian Wayne; although Breyfogle had a few more ideas for a Robin costume.
Although, the future’s Robin Beyond costume (above) looks pretty cool too.
So, we’re no sure what Damian Wayne’s next costume will look like (hopefully not like his short-lived one from the New 52 above), but what about a new nom de guerre?
Damian Wayne, the Son of Batman, is no longer Robin! So, what should he be called now? (Pick up to 3.)
