    Dick Grayson age 12 is Miller. Dick was younger.

    However the key thing about age isn't that 12-13 yr olds make it work [that is a negative]

    The important aspect is the mentor can empathise with the situation of the kid at the time. That is only present in Bruce/Dick and dick/Damian

    Tim is Bruce's greatest failure. There is no logical or valid reason why a man grieving his kid/sidekicks brutal murder should ever take another father's son and proceed to put them in the same dangerous situation.

    At that point even a Dounce would hire a meta/an adult unless the goal is to see how many minors you can lead to their death.

    His parents didn't die.
    power walking or chin ups in his bedroom doorway don't count.
    Wanting to be part of the team you stan to the point you stalk them and harass them for membership when the last member's seat is still warm is all kinds of red flags.

    not something bruce would do. Not something Dick would encourage. Alfred might.

    No, he's not. All of Tim's actions were of his own choice. If Batman didn't take him in, he definitely would have struck out on his own.
    Tim trained in martial arts, acrobatics, and gymnastics. His parents may not have died, but they were seldom around, but it doesn't really matter if his parents died or not.

    Actually, it was pre-Miller as well in at least two origin stories going back to the '80s:

    The 80's one is 10. Robin Year One's 12, or to be exact, starting middle school.

    Sorry it was Batwoman Begins. It's a two issue story arc, and I don't know if it's collected in Detective Comics or in Batwoman trade.

    There was "Batwoman Begins!" in 52 #11 (from 2006).


    The two-issue Rebirth story was in Detective Comics #948-949
    (which I've never bothered reading)
    .


    Those two issues appear to have been collected in Batman: Detective Comics #2 - The Victim Syndicate

    Best Dick Grayson was when he was the sidekick of Kal-El.

    Killing Joke sucks.
    Year One is overrarted and Zero Year is much better than it.
    Tom King's Batman run is the worst run in Batman history since Denny O'Neil saved him in 1970.

    I think with how little they use other Batfamily members maybe we should get the Batfam lessen. It's getting too much they are not using all the characters and would rather always just have them there but do nothing. I wouldn't mind if they are just giving their own group so they aren't in the Batfam but still exist. Like Bette will pop up but they don't know what to do with her. I think maybe have her set up Titans West again. Or Misfit be in the Bop but then again she is more BoP. They keep adding to the Batfam but they do it because they don't know what to do with other character it feels to me

    How has Nightwing not gotten his own sidekick(s) at this point?
