    while i loathed almost everything about the new 52 tim drake, i thought the red robin name was fine. differentiates from damian, ties in a bit to kingdom come. everybody wins.

    And they'll all eat pizza and skateboard or something stupid like that.
    This is a major improvement compared to some of the stuff that DC has been publishing recently.

    Tim should take on the Flamebird identity. No one has used it for years and it sounds cooler than Red Robin.

    So this is a thread to suggest a new name for Tim Drake!
    Personally, I would give him the "Flamebird" identity that was originally spotted by Betty Kane.
    I disagree. Tim ONLY wanted to be Robin and he was the one person who was meant to be Robin. It was editorial that basically forced him out of the Robin suit because of Morrison's saga going on, I for one never accepted it even though the Red Robin solo was great. If some writer is able to develop a new identity for him and make it a natural development then I won't mind, but DC shouldn't be in any sort of rush to change his character.

    He was Red Robin. Now, he will be "Yummm!"

    I still say Flamebird is a better name for Damien, personally.
    His current approval rating is 34%, meaning 34% of Americans are still morons.

    This. Also that the whole point of red Robin disappeared with the new 52. He should have gone back to being Robin then.

    Instead they took everything from him and made him into a new character. And then they were surprised it never took.

    Bendis: And yes, there will be some rebranding and some new looks. Change is good!
    I honestly hope it'll be Tim who'll change indeed.

    Because if it's Damian who graduate from Robin while Tim get regressed to this identity, it'll cement the idea that he can't ever be anything but Robin. Which would be a disservice to the character, I think.

    With everything going on in TT and upcoming Deathstroke, makes me wonder if Damian may be in store for a change.

    Admittedly I'm not the biggest Tim Drake fan (i don't dislike him at all, I just don't follow him), but would it be such a hit to the character? Isn't being Robin all that he actually wants? I though (and could be wrong) that he always assumed that he would be Robin for a while, and then retire from superheroing.

    I wish there was never a 5th robin. Tim is a better Robin than Damian
