  1. To be fair, Jason's death was as much a surprise...

    To be fair, Jason's death was as much a surprise to the folks at DC as it was to everyone else. Sure, when they set up the telephone hotline to determine Jason's fate in A Death in the Family, they...
  2. Year 3 is the most relevant to Tim; it's when...

    Year 3 is the most relevant to Tim; it's when Dick first meets Tim, on the day of his parents' deaths. It was Tim's memories of that day that helped him piece things together later. Dark Victory...
  3. At this point, what is and isn't continuity is...

    At this point, what is and isn't continuity is very much up in the air. But that's beside the point. These days, it's accepted wisdom that DKR is an alternate reality. In fact, Miller has pretty much...
  4. Actually, when A Lonely Place of Dying came out,...

    Actually, when A Lonely Place of Dying came out, Frank Miller's Year One was still very much considered mainstream continuity (Tim was introduced in Batman: Year 3, which was basically the...
  5. And Batman himself has demonstrated much more...

    And Batman himself has demonstrated much more contrived feats.
  6. Not really. Sure, the newsfeed showing Robin...

    Not really. Sure, the newsfeed showing Robin performing the same maneuver that Dick had performed back in the circus might be considered “stumbling over it” — except that Tim was smart enough to know...
  7. Eh. Stumbling over Batman's identity vs. figuring...

    Eh. Stumbling over Batman's identity vs. figuring it out for yourself is a pretty big difference.
  8. One nitpick: Carrie didn't figure out Batman's...

    One nitpick: Carrie didn't figure out Batman's secret identity. Bruce told her who he was. Tim is the first (and only) Robin to figure out who Batman is.

    Another nitpick: while Carrie was...

    I didn't take it as rotting; I took it as scorched. And it won't surprise me if that turns out to be Plastic Man, after having a very bad day.
  10. Being factual involves dealing with the facts,...

    Being factual involves dealing with the facts, and not just cherry-picking the ones that support your position while ignoring or downplaying the ones that counter it. For instance:

    That would be...
  11. Yeah; I would have liked a sort of “where are...

    Yeah; I would have liked a sort of “where are they now?” story for the “We Are Robin” gang, possibly told with Duke as the viewpoint character. Just have Signal checking up on his old friends.
    ...
  12. More integrated into the setting, actually....

    More integrated into the setting, actually. Granted, her primary tie was as Tim's girlfriend; but she had first been introduced in the pages of Batman (or was it Detective Comics? I forget). So from...
  13. They've become like bickering brothers.

    They've become like bickering brothers.
  14. True enough. That said, it was very much a...

    True enough. That said, it was very much a Lobdell thing: prior to the New 52, the Jason/Tim dynamic was downright hostile, even moreso than the Tim/Damian dynamic.
  15. I do wish they had done a Carrie story — except...

    I do wish they had done a Carrie story — except that Frank Miller would have written it, and he's gone off the rails. That, and Carrie is explicitly part of a different timeline: the Dark Knight...
  16. That, and the Titans of Tomorrow timeline. ...

    That, and the Titans of Tomorrow timeline.

    And yeah; while Stephanie's Batgirl title launched concurrently with Tim's Red Robin title and Dick and Damian's Batman and Robin title, it did take a...
  17. It is antibacterial soap and hand sanitizer and...

    It is antibacterial soap and hand sanitizer and masks. And gloves, bread, ground beef, milk, and eggs. And it's also disposable wipes and paper towels and tissues. And toilet paper. I work in the gig...
  18. Hey now, people are paying $50 a roll for toilet...

    Hey now, people are paying $50 a roll for toilet paper these days.
  19. Exactly. There's what Didio had in mind, and...

    Exactly. There's what Didio had in mind, and there's what will happen now that he's gone.
  20. Yeah; my point was that Barbara was Cassandra's...

    Yeah; my point was that Barbara was Cassandra's mentor. And if you squint hard enough, “X is my mentor” can kind of look like “I am X's sidekick”. Certainly, it holds the other way around: if you are...
  21. Cassandra wasn't really Bruce's sidekick. To the...

    Cassandra wasn't really Bruce's sidekick. To the extent that she was anyone's sidekick, she was Barbara's.

    The Batgirls have never been Batman's sidekick, even going all the way back to Betty...
  22. Tim never dropped out; he took a GED and...

    Tim never dropped out; he took a GED and graduated early.
  23. I saw a fan art version of it that made a single...

    I saw a fan art version of it that made a single change which made all the difference: it replaced the little disk-like thing over his heart with a “D” done in the same stylized font as the “R” on...
  24. But, but… the seam along the side of her leg...

    But, but… the seam along the side of her leg split open about half an inch, in two or three places! You could see skin!




    Tim wasn't in college at the time; he was in a boarding school.
  25. Yeah; well, while Tumblr had a point I'm getting...

    Yeah; well, while Tumblr had a point I'm getting tired of the outrage. I'm with millernumber1 on this, and just want to celebrate Stephanie getting a decent story for once.
