    Default Robin's original costume...

    I wish it would make a comeback, I liked it. When Dick was Robin it was like he was the bright ray of sunshine, the light to Batman's dark. The mask and the little Robin Hood shoes were a nice touch. If it came back with Damian that would be cool and a nice call back to the first Robin.

    Damian would probably quit before he was seen in the old trunks and pixie boots, lol.

    Of the modern Robins, Damian is probably the one must suited to the original outfit now. Classic Robin the Boy Wonder is like the character Puck--also called Robin Goodfellow--in Shakespeare's THE MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM. He's a mischievous creature. So that odd costume well suits him.

    Not gonna lie, I'm very glad the original outfit isn't in continuity anymore. Batman sending young boys out to fight crime in one of the worst cities in the country is bad enough without making them do it in scaly green panties XD

    I'm surprised Damian has never worn it even once in main continuity, whether it's a joke, homage, plot point etc.

    Man, you Batman fans are never satisfied. Robin was outfitted with armour to protect his private parts--chainmail green pants, long before Batman himself wore armour--and a bullet-proof vest that doubled as a life-preserver. And Bruce was so concerned for Dick's safety at night that he had him wear bright colours so he'd be visible and not get hit by a car when crossing the street. How is that child endangerment?

    Yeah.. He would change his alias for Redbird again..

    Specially now that is one adolescent..He would feel even more ridiculous with the original robin costume.

    For some reason, I feel that the green, red, and yellow costume tends to look more stylish on women than on men.

    The original Robin red vest is what Damian used for his first Robin costume. It is why DC getting rid of the original costume was odd because Damian's costume was using bits of it sort of.

    I want it back, not as a current suit but as Dick's original costume in flashbacks and what not. It works for his character as a performer and hero.

    He is the Robin most similar to Robin Goodfellow. After all, no other Robin has done things that Puck does, like:
    -kidnaps people so they'll be his friends
    -create challenges in order to entertain someone and make them happy
    -complete impossible tasks in a 24 hour period at the command of an immortal ruler
    -collect animals
    -collect mythical animals
    -get called a pixie by villains
    -claims to age but doesn't
    -small, cute, and scary but appears harmless

    While Damian hasn't worn the costume, and given how many adults have been too interested in his sexuality in canon (Detective Comics Annual 11 springs to mind) he never would Pyg did make a whole bunch of Dollotrons based on Damian and at least one was in the original costume.

    Which would be one of those fridge horror moments everyone is glad to ignore desite it being a good HIC scene. All the other Robins talking about being unsure of who they are and Damian, "I feel very uncomfortable about Professor Pyg's interest. And that one time a naked lady tried to make me a man. And the way people comment on my development. I wear heavy clothes because I don't like when strangers me. Sometimes I wake up in the wrong clothes after being abducted, or else the people who've abducted me have outfits they want me to wear. My mother says that it's normal, but Talia and normal have never met and everyone else changes the subject. Is this normal? How do I train for it? Why do people keep ruffling my hair and otherwise touching me without permission or invitation?"

    This!
    I'm sorry that this costume is banned even in the flashbacks. It's iconic and was the first one I loved as a child.
