NTW_Featured

Dick Grayson, the former Robin and occasional Batman currently known as Nightwing, has a lot of fans on social media. And what's interesting is that this turns out to be just as true in the DC Universe as it is in our world.

In Nightwing #16, by Tim Seeley and Javier Fernandez, current Robin Damian Wayne discovers Nightwing's online popularity, and he's not thrilled about it. What really gets under Damian's skin is the assumption that Nightwing will eventually take the mantle of Batman for good. He also doesn't seem to love seeing Dick referred to with the hashtags #TheOriginalRobin and #BestRobin.

If you've been paying attention to Damian Wayne for even just a little while, you already know he's one Robin you don't want to cross. Batman's son is just that much of a bad little dude. Depending on which alternate timeline you believe happens, he also grows up to be Batman, or in the case of Injustice, he sticks around as Robin after maybe not-so-accidentally killing Nightwing. Five years after the events of the first game, Damian is back, and judging by this new trailer for Injustice 2, he's still just as angry with his father as ever.

Each one also represents a different idea about who and what children are, and how they are depicted in superhero comics. Kids can represent hope, they can represent dread, they can represent immaturity, and they can represent legacy. Let's break down how the Robins can represent all of these things.

The Replacements: Dick Grayson And The Legacy Of Robin

Robin-Featured

Since the dawn of the Silver Age, legacy characters have been a staple of superhero fiction, and having a new character step into a well loved role can open up new opportunities for writers and artists to tell different kinds of stories. In The Replacements, we’ll look back at the notable and not-so-notable heroes and villains to assume some of the most iconic mantles in the superhero genre.

The first truth of Batman is that he was never alone, he always had help and he's almost always had a Robin by his side. Bruce Wayne has always needed the lightness of Robin to balance the darkness of Batman, and despite some tragedy along the way, the title of Boy (and Girl) Wonder is one of the most enduring legacies in the DC Universe.

Batman Is Not A Great Dad In ‘Robin: Son Of Batman’ #9 (Or Ever, Really) [Preview]

Robin: Son of Batman #9, DC Comics

Imagine, for a moment, that you are the son of Batman. This shouldn't be difficult, because if you're anything like me, you're already doing this constantly already. You most likely have what could charitably be described as a strained relationship, because he has always put his one-man war against crime first, with family coming in at a distant second, but you've been able to come to terms with that, and maybe you've actually made some progress in your relationship.

And then you see that dude build a gigantic friggin' playground and handing out hugs for everybody else's kids, and all the sudden you're mad about it all over again.

That, friends, is exactly what's happening in the pages of Robin: Son of Batman #9, and if you can't wait to see the emotional toll that can result from a slide made out of a robot dinosaur, check out an exclusive preview!
