      When and why did Tim go back to being Robin? He was still Red Robin in the nu52.

      • 3 weeks ago
        Anonymous

        He was Red Robin up until Bendis' YJ, where he was just back to being Robin for some unexplained reason, I guess because it couldn't be YJ with Red Robin or something.
        Actually, maybe it was because at that point DC was working on Damian dropping the identity for 5G, so they had Tim preemptively go back to being Robin, the plans were seemingly to have Damian as a villain, and Tim as Robin, but that never happened.

        • 3 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          Tim's identity in that YJ run was weird because he started as Robin, then claimed to be Red Robin, then became Drake, and then everyone hated that so much he just settled back into Robin, which was very convenient for him since Damian also dropped the name around that time.
          I'll never forget the month when we got Tim using 3 different identities in 3 separate comics.

          Damian has always been depicted as severely short. Going by OP's pic, if Damian was the average height of a male his age then Tim would be somewhere around 6'3 at least. If Tim is the average height of a male his age then Damian would be somewhere around 5'2 feet tall.

          Tim shouldn't be a manlet twink; he should be 6 ft+ twunk at the absolute minimum.

          It bothers me a lot that people keep drawing Tim as some twig. Dude is an acrobat and martial artist with an extensive training routine, he should be lean, fairly jacked, and look like you could shatter a wooden chair across his back without him budging.

          He was listed as 5'6 at his debut at 14ish which would put him around the 75th percentile for height, making him between 5'11 and 6'0 as young adult. Dick is only 5'10 so Tim should at the very least be an inch or two taller at when he's fully grown. I think in the Arkham games Tim is listed as 6'0 as well. And as bunch of people have pointed out before, Damian is abnormally short. No way he would ever be taller than Tim.

      Teen Titans should be a showcase of actual new teen characters like Wally's kids, Blue Beetle, etc. Have fun with it. It's okay if Damian is involved.
