    A new mantle. Let him grow beyond Robin and grow beyond 17

    That seems to be what was implied at the end of his UL arc. Let's hope that is the case, along with a solid new direction.

    Relevance. Getting out of the Robin name once and for all. Just...SOMETHING to make me love this character as much as I did before the New 52.

    I actually never minded the Red Robin name and I really liked his New 52 costume, but clearly he needs to just ditch any semblance of Robin or else he'll just keep going back.

    Exactly. Red Robin was fine until the New-52 hit and he lost all backstory that lead Tim to that point. 'Robin' needs to be dropped altogether from his name.

    Agreed. Agreed. Agreed.

    A new name without: Bat, Hood, Night, Red, Robin or Wing. Time to move forward.

    This and all that other stuff.

    This is why we need a new Tim Drake series, but they need a GOOD name and a GOOD design. Not to slight whomever designed the Drake costume, but that was just boring as all get out and overly complicated. I still think the Rook would be an excellent name for him, but it doesn't seem to be available.

    May you Drake Fans have good tidings.

    And that Tim never goes brown for a costume again.

    Given that both Nightwing and Red Hood were old names that were reinvented by Dick and Jason respectively, is there a mantle that you can see Tim adopting and reinventing?

    Could always use Dr. Midnight if JSA isn't using it.

    Does it have to be bird themed?

    I wouldn't have any issue with him using Dr. Midnight other than that he's not a Doctor of anything really. However if we are going to use legacy names Midnight is an old pulp hero DC owns, but that one might be too close to the Midnighter. DC could also bring the Grey Ghost into continuity (at least I dont think they have as yet) and let Tim pick that up. Another option could be Geist (of the Bloodpack) I dont think this character has been seen since the New 52 has he?
    I dont mind if Tim has an original name or a legacy (Chuck Dixon was all set for him to become the new Blue Beetle which, as much as I like Jamie, was a great idea and missed opportunity.)
