    I don't hate the name, but I can't say this really sold me on it either. I liked the way he was written, though.

    It's his actual name. It's not even really a codename .

    And its not even for the dragon (which would have been over the top, but at least understandable), its for the freakin' duck. Cue the Darkwing Duck intro!

    A Goose is better. I mean, when you decide to choose an aquatic bird... They're the meanest ones I can think about.

    Ducks are very cute, though.
    This is a signature. It has letters on it, and those letters form words. Words like these. I will not quote anything because I'm uninspired but, I read a lot: I could!

    And this is my Tumblr. Sometimes I post stuff there.

    Same, I just wish he kept the Red Robin moniker with his cowl pre-52.

    It made him stand out from the rest of the pack.

    So how long until they kill him? Dido said he would never kill a Robin, so this was almost certainly done so they can kill him.

    He's going to get shot in the head and forget who he is and go by Jim Drake.

    Ya, this is stupid. At this point I would rather see him retire, like his original intention was, once he finished his stint as Robin, he would retire. Well thanks to DC they prematurely retired him. He hasn't been the same since Damian came into the picture. Thanks a lot. Fuck The Drake, the fearsome, super scary Drake. Woooo.

    Honestly I actually don't really have that big of a problem with the name.

    Its the new costume that I really can't stand.
    My name is Wally West. I"m the fastest man alive. I"m the Flash.

    Favorite Heroes - 1-Flash/Wally West, 2-Superman, 3-Green Lantern/Hal Jordan, 4-Nightwing, 5-Hawkman, 6-Firestorm, 7-Supergirl/Linda Danvers, 8-Zatanna, 9-Robin/Tim Drake.

    Currently Reading: All Star Comics, Justice League of America (Satalite years era), Huntress ('89 series)

    Neither the name nor the costume is what I'd consider ideal; but I can live with it.

    That said, if the five-year gap theory turns out to be true, I'll be perfectly fine if the 5G version of Tim hangs up his costume and just goes by “Detective Tim Drake” and does crimefighting in the style of the Question.
    Rogue wears rouge.

    Tims in a REAL awkward position no doubt.

    But why name yourself after your evil counterpart ? Especially one who's clearly an idiot since he thinks Ducks are "the most dangerous bird".

    I mean besides the obvious corporate/marketing shenanigans

    The Name is not a problem, the reasons are... so stupid.

    The new costume is the real issue.
