    By the way, what are Tim's fighting accomplishment in general? He's known to be the most intelligent but where is he in the physical ranking?
    Tim is known for cheating. In the old continuity he did stuff like he'll poison you to weaken you before he has to fight you or play dead so you leave him alone. stuff like which is smart. The only writer who ever ranked them is King and he had Tim last under Duke which is fair since this Tim is 16 and has undisclosed training Duke has trained with batman and is bigger than current Tim so I can buy it.. Plus Duke has powers.

    Yet failing to notice that it was Jackalope89 a big Damian fan, who started this by making a passive aggressive jab.
    Jackalopes has a lot of love for all Robins mate.

    I'm still on the fence but at least we have Tim present in a book again.
    So many things have been hinted, so many questions are waiting for an answer.
    My judgment on Bendis remains on hold.
    I strongly miss a solo book, where finally try to fix Tim. This regression to the role of Robin leaves me perplexed and divided.
    Much will depend on the direction that will be undertaken not only in Bendis world but especially in the DC Universe.

    Tim needs a solo to trul be fixed

    Team books can be great but they lack the ability to truly hone in on character development

    I wouldnt bring up king when it comes to discussing power levels. According to King and catwoman can easily beat flash, and Tim has easily beaten catwoman, so do the math.

    Robin is the iconic DC superhero and father of all sidekicks. "Red Robin" is a restaurant chain first and foremost. I don't see this as a demotion at all: I see this as Tim rightfully reclaiming a role that was his and unceremoniously taken away from him to make room for Damian. In the 80s, fans complained that Jason had usurped the role of Robin from Dick, but Jason didn't begin operating as Robin until after Dick had voluntarily ceded the title to become Nightwing. Tim's loss of the Robin identity to Damian was more along the lines of a usurpation.

    Yep. It was suposed to be temporary, so they wanted as much drama as possible. But the character stuck around and they never did anything worth reading with the drama, so meh. As far as im concerned BestRobin is back.

    The new 52 never treated Red Robin as an improvement or the new Nightwing, so have no idea why people are complaining.

    Tim is my favorite Robin (depending on the day) so I'm glad to have him back. I just loved his Red Robin solo series and hate how he was later butchered in the reboot.

    None of that makes any of what I posted incorrect and on Tim beating Selina. Tim also was once an orphan adopted by Bruce going by Wayne . King was ranking in Rebirth don't matter about his power levels the point is he put Rebirth tim last. Take it how you will but its facts.

    And im telling you King has less understanding of these characters and how they work, than literally any poster in this site. He has been wildly incoherent in his run and if thats the best we got, we are better off just ignoring him and going by gut feeling.
