One of the more controversial moments of SDCC was the comment that Tim Drake (former Robin, current Red Robin and leader of the Teen Titans) was never really Robin in the DC’s New 52.
Personally, I don’t care enough about continuity in Big Two universes to worry about it but I am curious as to which Robin our readers feel is the best.
DICK GRAYSON: The original boy wonder. Grew out of Bruce Wayne’s shadow and became Nightwing. Served as Batman several times while Bruce was incapacitated and then returned to the Nightwing identity.
JASON TODD: Pre Crisis origin similar to Grayson. Son of two circus performers who were murdered. Taken in by Bruce Wayne. Post Crisis was a car thief turned unstable Robin. Got killed by the Joker during an infamous 900 # poll. Resurrected because he’s awesome. Now uses the alias The Red Hood
TIM DRAKE: In the wake of Jason’s death, figured out Batman’s identity and fought to become the new Robin as he believed ‘Batman always needs a Robin’ to keep him balanced. Detective skills rivaling Bruce Wayne’s. New costume lost the short shorts and boots. Now fights crime as Red Robin. Though post New 52 may have never actually been Robin
STEPHANIE BROWN: As Spoiler, daughter of the villain Cluemaster, she dated Tim Drake. When Tim and Bruce had a falling out Bruce replaced him with his girlfriend in his former roll. Lesson: don’t ever screw with Bruce Wayne. Brown later died in the role but it turns out the death was faked. Later became the new Batgirl (in a wonderful series pre New 52 by the way). Currently Barbara Gordon is Batgirl again and Steph Brown is nowhere to be seen in the New 52.
DAMIAN WAYNE: Bruce Wayne’s biological 10 year old son and never misses and opportunity to point this out to the former Robins. Took on the Robin identity when Dick Grayson was Batman briefly. When Bruce Wayne returned as Batman, Damian remained Robin fighting crime together as father and son
