    I saw that too! Very nice. He's getting pretty good representation across DC media.

    It is also possible this Robin is Dick too. His suit is similar to Dick Robin's suit in Titans (although the colors are brighter).

    There was that Teen Titans Wal-Mart books that had Robin that had all of Dick's traits, friends, etc. but turned out to be Tim.

    Found it.
    Which doesn't match the number of candles on his cake, and that he get's his own plane as a birthday present.
    A few issues later you see Dicks Report card at school, and he has classes like Latin, physics and chemistry, which isn't really elementary school stuff.
    And there are several issues were Dick takes up jobs as part of undercover investigations, you would probably also not give to an 8 year old.

    He was allready established to be in high school and roughly 15 in his golden age solos stories in Star-Spangled Comics.

    And I think the first time we see him is his school is in "Robin Studies His Lessons" in Batman #18 (and that doesn't seem to be an elementary school).

    Maybe, but I also think the golden age played fast and loose with continuity. They were more focused on telling one-off stories to sell to kids.

    It is nor unusual in comics and animation to draw kids and teen absurdly small.

    I mean Damian is supposed to be 13 and has the size of a nine year old.

    The YJ4 are all at least 16, which would in real live mean that they should be pretty close to their adult hight, but they are all a head shorter than the adult heroes (and in Tim's case also than his own future selfs from alternate time lines).

    It isn't just that they are just short at 16 compared to Adult heroes.

    It is always implied that teens at 16 will still grow a lot to the time they become adults. They usually become so tall as their mentors.

    Of course, this isn't anymore the case for Dick, since he's already an adult, but DC wants him to be shorter than Bruce.

    I feel like Dick being a little short (by hero standards) is pretty much the norm. Kory is much taller than he is as well, and basically always has been.

    No idea what Dick's official height is, but I'm pretty sure he's just of average height, which makes him look short compared to the towering giants that are most superheroes.

    Personally, I think it's a great detail.

    I remember some comments about how Dick was a little less talk than his Pre-Flashpoint version back when the New 52 started, but i never gave it much thought, comic books are rarely consistent with heigths.
