    I like that reasoning, and the way the colors of the costume have new meaning with each new kid in the suit. Red shirt + black pants could be cool for Jason... maybe he's always in black jeans b/c...

    The DCU HBOMax show's second season is REALLY funny and great... Episode 7 (with Bane and the pit and Gordon and Batgirl) might be the highlight but this whole season kicked ass. First season was a...

    I wasn't feeling this series for awhile but I find myself pretty interested by the Red Hood story now that it's peaking. Maybe once the run is complete it will all flow together better from the...

    The larger world and mythos (including Robin) is the draw for me too. I was speaking on the conceptual level of it-- "Bruce Wayne" is the justification to how Batman and his world would be possible....
  5. I think that you don't even need it to be Bruce....

    I think that you don't even need it to be Bruce. "Batman" is a clear identity and shape. The ears, the cape, the methodology. We all know Batman, and it's Bruce Wayne, but we know it doesn't have to...

    Nightwing, Robin, Batgirl, the Batwomans.

    Bane, Rupert Thorne, Penguin, Daggett.
  7. I've given this a bit more thought and wanted to...

    I've given this a bit more thought and wanted to expand on this idea. It was asked earlier, what counts as fantastical? And it was then answered with good examples. It reminded me of one of the words...

    What a lovely topic. Great posts and points made already. bat39 and godisawesome neatly lined out the publishing history angle, with a great new insight into DKR that I'd never heard articulated...

    Anything can be done. I wouldn't prefer it. In general I think I dislike the more colorful Batman's costume is, regardless of their historic use. Even gray-on-black feels a bit more 'superhero' than...

    There hasn't been any legitimate "Batman and Robin" action on screen, ever. It's so lame that the best representation of the Dynamic Duo in live action are the terrible '97 film, and.... the '60s...

    It's contextual, and it's a cultural threshold. Batman '89 was considered extremely dark. You look at it now, it looks like it's just the goth'd up reboot of the Adam West show, same as Tim Burton's...
  12. It seems like the kind of line that may have been...

    It seems like the kind of line that may have been in an O'Neil story first, but TAS definitely popularized it. In particular there was a period on Cartoon Network where that quote was always used as...
  13. Because all of the Robins are rebels, and all of...

    Because all of the Robins are rebels, and all of them have complicated feelings toward Bruce, so it's a natural bonding agent between them. He's not necessarily a jerk even. He's just being Batman...

    Yeah it's something that kinda is like a "prove it" thing. It hasn't been done. The closest approximation I can give you are all loaded, like King -- I'm just talking about those Bat Burger scenes...

    That's hilarious and adorable. Dick Grayson age 12. Good points. It doesn't surprise me that Damian and JasonTodd and Red Hood are equally known.

    Leaving Tim Drake in that kind of Wally West /...

    It's only watering down in the wrong hands. It should be watering up, as in feeding it like you would a plant or any living organism. That's why Dick & Damian are the exception because they are the...

    You're not an idiot but hopefully you have already realized what is wrong with you... you're sitting on a mountain of fascinating stories! I made a "Post-Crisis DCU Appreciation Thread" somewhere...

    I agree. I am optimistic the changes will be for the best. I think we will probably see an expanse of creator-driven limited series and less emphasis on never-ending monthlies. That's going to be...

    That's fun! And that's what I mean -- it only needs a bit of an explanation to justify it, same as Grayson becoming a spy. No great reason other than a pretty decent answer to "what do we do with...

    Have they moved away from Cyclops/Wolverine? I thought they re-centered that dynamic again recently in some kind of complicated love triangle scenario. But I don't know, I haven't actually read the X...

    Right. Yeah we need to kind of look at it from the two main perspectives.

    1) the fan POV, as people who love these characters and in doing so, have made them real. These characters are all...

    I'm guessing the answer to this is "absolutely not" but... how would people feel about a hybrid character? As in, a new character that is essentially the combined histories and traits of Tim Drake...

    I think that's a common assumption but honestly I don't think "Dick Grayson" is any more well known than "Tim Drake" -- "Robin" is what people know, and they may know that he was an "acrobat" but...

    I like how his origin has been revised so far in "The Adventures Continue" and I'm curious to see how his "resurrection" plays out there, especially since that continuity already has a Robin being...

    I'm speaking from the perspective of a writer. All characters are based in archetypes because all stories are following the same structure, especially in genre stories. The conversation in the last...
