    Correct but in his old age he took on a 3rd Robin

    A 3rd Robin who was a big fan from the suburbs with neglectful parents who figured out bruce's identity. Recognised that Batman need help since his world has gotten much darker. Batman refuses to take on another kid but the kid saved Batman's life and impressed batman with their skills so much that batman accepts.

    The kid becomes a valuable sidekick who though lacking in physical abilities more than makes up for that with her tech skills and her intuition all the while juggling a hero life with her personal and school life.

    This Robin was more of a partner than a sidekick. Later a predecessor returns and attempts to kill the replacement Robin but Carrie Survives.

    I wasn't sure if the original comment was being serious since the main universe writers clearly took something big from Millar's Work.

    It does kinda fit with how people would react if they keep coming back from the dead that I talked about in the Pennyworth RIP discussion thread... I just need to hear a better wording because as is it's just "omg"

    It's time for the Batfam to date within their own circle. I don't know at one part they are brothers and sisters. Then you have them dating. It's a weird incest thing. This is why I often like Dick with Kori. More because it's outside the family

    They don't date within the family.

    Babs isn't family and neither is Steph.

    Here's another odd one - I'm not at all sure they all need to be close. Fanfic loves to paint them as one big family (happy or dysfunctional). But, of course, originally Barbara was separate from Bruce and Dick. Then built a sort of partnership with Dick while she was a congresswoman, but still didn't have much to do with Bruce. I like that, that he wouldn't have to be the center of everything. I'd keep her dynamic with Cass as it played out. I prefer Steph as a non-Batgirl, with her connections being Tim and later Cass. Damian, maybe, but not Bruce or Jason or Duke or Dick. Tim could have a close relationship with Dick (I really enjoyed that), but I feel less strongly about his relationships with Jason or Cass (can take or leave, esp. Cass) and he doesn't have be close with Damian or Duke. Barbara and Jason appeared in like two issues together post-COIE before he died, as far as I can recall, and I dislike later recons on the two of them. I think I could like a Duke and Damian dynamic, but don't really care about Duke building a close rapport with the others (am not reading Outsiders, though, so maybe if I was I'd be swayed on him and Cass). Jason could be close with Tim, I kinda like the idea, but it's not super-necessary to me. But he needn't be close with really any of the others to me.

    I'd prefer Barbara and Steph (who I definitely ship with former Robins), especially, who have not been fostered or lived with Bruce, to not have close relationships with him as the others do, and have to not necessarily have close relationships with all the others (though, like I said, I do want some of them).

    I also think each of them having consistent people outside the family would help. Poor Damian can't keep any - Colin, Suren, Maya, ...bye bye. Jason's doing better in that regard lately, and Dick has been okay since the Teen Titans. Tim's back with YJ, though I don't know about any civilian friends. But Barbara and Steph and Cass and Duke, I'm just not so sure about.
