    Default Newsarama 10 Greatest Robins Poll

    I came across this poll on Twitter. It is insane. I agree that Dick is the best Robin but obviously I'm incredibly biased I thought the writer was very fair about certain things, like Stephs tenure, but I don't agree with Jason's place at all.

    What do you guys think?

    Jason should be way higher on the list.

    Hey and they managed to use the picture of the wrong Bruce jr. The one they used went by "Batman jr." and was never Robin. The "Robin II" bruce jr. had red hair.

    I'm thinking Jason's place was designed to be controversial. Maybe just to generate some buzz in the comments. Nobody could seriously think he'd place last right?

    Btw. i'm pretty sure that this list isn't new, and that I have already seen it years ago, but it seems that the artice is new.

    Awful list. The ranking seems very superficial. Rubbish, ranking Jason last. The robins should be ranked according to the their contribution to the batman mythos and achievements.

    Maybe Damian is a better character and source of conflict for Batman then Tim, but he is a terrible Robin.

    Except he isn’t. Like him or not, and despite his attitude, he’s actually quite good at the job. Hell he even died for his Batman.

    Damian is not a terrible robin. He is a very good one at that, his popularity is very deserved.

    I don't even have to read to know Dick is number 1 again. There's a huge gap between the length and number of his appearances across various media compared to everyone else. Dick is my favorite character but like Batman he needs to be taken out of some lists.

    This was my favorite response that I saw on Twitter
    The fact that there are more than ten to choose from bothers the shit out of me and to me demonstrates what’s wrong with comics since he nineties.
    It's the Dynamic Duo! Batman and Robin!... and Red Robin and Red Hood and Nightwing and Batwoman and Batgirl and Orphan and Spoiler and Bluebird and Lark and Gotham Girl and Talon and Batwing and Huntress and Azreal and Flamebird and Batcow?

    Since when could just anybody do what we trained to do? It makes it all dumb instead of special. Like it doesn't matter anymore.

    Even though I would put Steph at the top (because I'm me ), I think the list has some good points. The Jason ranking is definitely kinda strange, but I appreciate that Steph is 6 and not 10. I do think Tim should swap places with Damian - I think he's a better Robin.

    Carrie doesn't have as many stories, but she's part of one of the biggest stories of all time, and was the first major female Robin.

    the fact the fans voted for him to die would say different no?
