separate pages[edit]

I agree also. Other heroes with various incarnations get seperate pages. So should the Robins. Especially Dick, being that he has come into his own.

I agree with dr bats

Should each of the Robins get their own entry? Tim Drake would get the main entry, Dick would get 'Nightwing', Jason Todd could be just 'Jason Todd,' and there's already a Spoiler entry for Stephanie.

Thoughts? --DrBat 14:18, May 22, 2005 (UTC)

I went ahead and split Grayson and Drake into their own articles.--Kross 09:00, August 30, 2005 (UTC)

Spoiler Warning[edit]

I'll go ahead and add a spoiler warning before the section, as it explicitly refers to the death of Jason Todd, and other major plot elements.

All Star Robin[edit]

All star batman and robin is only on issue #3 and dick hasn't even appeared as robin yet. i don't think this version needs his own page. at least, not yet. Carrie Kelly doesn't even have her own page and i think she (currently) has more signifigance that All-Star Robin.

Where is the haired, Gun using, Robin of the Future?

i kwow who is the wife of robin -- (talk)--~

Why the Revert War[edit]

After my initial confusion regarding the revert-battles going on with the JSA & JLA catagory adds/deletes, I think I've struck upon the reason for it; Earth-2 Robin. I know at least he was in the JSA. Of course, since the continuity Robin isn't nor has he ever been, I certainly don't think that catagorization is correct, but I wonder if it is at the root of this? --mordicai. 16:14, 7 October 2006 (TAE)

That's not the issue. A user is trying to imply categories which are not representitive of the mainstream Robin, yes. However, they are also doing it without making any attempt discuss the matter or taking note of a recent ruling on categorization for articles about a legacy. Basically, it's effective vandalism and if they don't stop I'll have to report them. ACS (Wikipedian); Talk to the Ace. See what I've edited. 16:31, 7 October 2006 (TAE)


Dick Grayson's Boy Wonder place in new continuity[edit]

It is of some note that in the post-crisis/zero-hour/infinite crisis continuity there are very (very very) few stories featuring the adventures of Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson(as Batman and Robin).

In fact it is interesting to note that Robin (the original Boy Wonder - Dick Grayson) was markedly absent from 'Batman: Lengends of the Dark Night' - a publication which was intended to fill in the blanks of Batman's post original crisis history. So far Grayson's adventures of Robin have also not featured in Batman Confidential (though this comic is still in its early days). And 'All Star Batman and Robin' is markedly out of continuity.

In fact, one could probably easily name the in-continuity stories which show how the relationship between Bruce and Dick developed in the early years (in both their private lives and as crime-fighters): Dark Justice & the 'Robin: Year One' Robin annual + one or two others.

I'm not sure how such a point could be made within this article. But I'm sure there is a point somewhere. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 18:47:59, August 19, 2007 (UTC)
