    Oh yeah, they loveley people that would lost their collective control every time a joke was made in Grayson, that would harass King and Seeley in twitter because they felt triggered with every issue, the ones that wouldn't shut up about the good old days of Dixon run?

    Pfff that some people aren't never going to be happy, they are allergic to anything remotelly new....and they love the characters pigeonholed, as long as they choose the boxes

    Remember that Batman and Robin issue by Tomasi in the New 52 where Damian was going around and challenging the Robins and trying to take a trophy from them to show how he was "the" Robin? Then at the end of the arc he got to Dick and Dick just tossed him one of his weapons because he didn't care at all about it? Then the two drove off in the Batman mobile together. That is how Dick should feel about the Robin legacy. He doesn't care. It isn't important to him or how the other Robins fit into the Batman family. He created Robin and moved on from it. So King trying to have Dick act like he is concerned about how he fits in compared to the other Robins I think really misunderstand the character.

    Sure, you could say Jason, Tim and Damian have some hangups about it but that doesn't make them these very basic tropes. Dick's hangups would be more with Bruce and Batman if you want to try and give him some.

    Ya, insecurities as it pertains to Bruce would make more sense. I get what King was doing, but like I said thought it was rather boring. In general Robin uniformity and generalizations bores me.

    Bruce is Batman. Damian is Robin. They're the Dynamic Duo.

    But what the hell am I?
    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.

    I think a better one would have been.

    "I saw my parents killed in front of me too, but I don't dwell on their deaths much anymore.

    Does that make me a bad son?"

    I don't know if he misses being Robin. More he would just miss being Batman's partner maybe?

    "I'm kinda weirded out that Bruce keeps stocking up on mini-me's. Or am I the first of his mini-Bruces?"

    Ugh those Robin scenes in HiC were so terrible.

    How is this the same King that helped with Grayson? His Batman is a disaster (Bat and Cat ugh) and his HiC was even worse, I'm not sure if I'll be reading any of his stuff anytime soon.

    Hoping for a solid Dick Grayson appearance in Batman: Last Knight on Earth.

    I think that Seeley made the differnce.
    And if I compare their work post Grayson, Seeley stuff (Nightwing and the Wedding Tie ins) has for me been much more enjoyable than Kings Batman.
