    Only if you ignore really obvious stuff like 52 and OYL chronicalling a year going by... (and that's without counting narratives like NML which were similar length, but less obviously so)....

    Agreed.

    That's not to say that comics need to be set in real time, sometimes the big "set piece" events can take 2-3 years to publish what is probably only days to weeks worth of stories (for...

    I think that the biggest missed opportunity with the New 52 reboot is that they didn't plan it out in advance and clearly lay out what had changed and what hadn't. I also think that - given that they...

    That's true.

    I still think that my basic idea of taking concept of the two (or three if you want to keep Earth 2 as well) universes and having one as the "clean slate" and one as the "legacy"...

    Agreed.

    In fact I'd take it one step further and suggest that "Earth 2", as the relative "clean slate" should have been the main focus of New 52 initiative with "New Earth" taking the old "Earth...

    Agreed.

    Actually, of the guys I'd say he's the least likely to end up as the Family's occult expert: Dick has his Romany background and - at least pre-FP - a long history with Raven and while not...

    Her graduating high school at 16 is specifically stated in Secret Origins vol 2 #20 (1987) and confirmed more recently in Birds of Prey #103 (2007), however you appear to be correct that she didn't...

    So as to avoid rehashing the arguement we had on a previous thread, I'll suggest that the writers seem to be unusually obsessed with making Tim as young as possible so sometimes flub his age...

    Yup.



    True, although he's probably about the age Dick was pre-FP.



    Bruce's age was roughly - mostly by implication - estimated at around mid-40s pre-FP, so lost 10-15 years.

    Annoyingly, Tim actually seems to have lost less age as a result of the Flashpoint than most (about 5ish rather than the standard 10) even if you start from his "correct" (relative to debut) age,...

    Honestly, BatBoy et al, strikes me more as a name that Damian might take on if Tim was the one that was staying as Robin.

    Agreed, I don't think a great deal of thought was put into trying to make the Silver Age material fit in the 1990s. It's a little difficult to judge from the art, but Dick certainly doesn't look 16...

    DC's offical timelines are usually fairly consistent about Dick becoming Nightwing less than a year before Crisis, Knightfall taking place about 3-4 years after that, and the "Big Guns" JLA forming...

    I'd say more like Avengers and X-Men.

    Rankings-wise I'd put Defenders as more Doom Patrol or Outsiders. Reasonably well known, but not exactly A or even B-List as solos apart from Doctor Strange...

    Except "queen" is more associated with female cats at that or gay men, neither of which applies to Tim.

    I did consider "Bishop", but as that is occassionally associated with the Arrowverse...

    No way, Pawns are minor players by definition. The whole point of Tim's name change is likely to be prompting him as an character.

    That's a fair point. However, there were at least three major organisations of the League after that in the old continuity - JLA (1996)*, Justice League of America Vol 2 (2006), and post-Cry For...

    Kinda corny, but I've seen worse.

    Personally I'm a fan of Rook, given the double-header of being a bird-name and a chess reference (reflecting his status as detective/strategist).

    Based on his history in the comics, I'm partial to "Guardian", maybe with a palette swap to "Super Family" red-and-blue rather than Jim Harper's gold-and-blue for the costume, obviously an S-shield...
