As the third Robin in the Batman comics, he served as Batman ‘s buddy, and he is a superhero in his own right. He presently uses the superhero identity of Red Robin .


Tim Drake was little more than a toddler when he attended the circus with his parents. In ordain to ease his wife ‘s concerns that the circus might frighten Tim, Jack Drake asked to take a picture with the Flying Graysons, who were the starring act. It was here that Tim first gear met Dick Grayson, who offered Tim special attention, and even promised to dedicate his performance to the toddler. soon after, Tim and his class bear witness to the mangle of Dick ‘s parents John and Mary, aboard Bruce Wayne. As his parents rushed him out of the circus camp, Tim managed to catch sight of the mysterious Batman consoling Dick. Feeling blue for Dick, Jack and Janet sent him a copy of the photograph they had taken prior to the murder. A few years later at the historic period of nine, Tim saw footage of Batman and Robin apprehending the Penguin. Robin performed a quadruple somersault, a rare maneuver that only a Flying Grayson could do. After learning Grayson was the ward of Bruce Wayne, he came to the ending that Grayson was Robin and that of course Wayne was Batman. Tim continued to follow the adventures of the Dynamic Duo, vitamin a well as Grayson ‘s becoming Nightwing and Jason Todd succeeding him as Robin. After Jason ‘s death, Timothy began to take notice of a drastic and about psychotic change in Batman ‘s demeanor, in which he became convinced that Batman needed a Robin to maintain his sanity. When Nightwing left the Titans for a brusque time in order to find himself, Tim followed him and after helping Dick solve a mystery at Haly ‘s Circus, was able to convince Dick that Batman needed help. however, where Dick intended to help Batman as Nightwing, Tim remained convinced that Batman needed Robin more. Dick ignored these pleas and raced off to help his mentor, only for both Dick and Bruce to be captured by Two-Face. Realizing that his idols were in danger, Tim donned the costume of Robin, at only thirteen years old and with the assistant of Alfred Pennyworth, was able to rescue them. Batman, although extremely reluctant, accept Tim as the newfangled Robin on a test footing after being convinced by the boy, arsenic well as Dick and Alfred. He was trained over several months, first gear by Alfred, then Batman, and last Nightwing before ever being allowed to wear the costume again or go into the field. unfortunately, fair prior to completing his aim, the pitiless Obeah Man late captured Tim ‘s parents during a travel to the Caribbean. The Obeah man intended to sacrifice them, but Batman arrived to their rescue. unfortunately, Janet and Jack both drink water system laced with poison, and Janet died, while Jack was left in a coma. Batman began to reconsider Tim for the role of Robin, due to his fear that Tim was now motivated by anger, fair as Jason had been. Tim, however, became more driven by his desire to do what was justly, rather than fiddling retaliation. After late saving Batman and Vicki Vale and defeating the Scarecrow, Bruce at last lend upon Tim the mantle of Robin, a well as a new costume .

Starting on the path

Despite ultimately getting his heart ‘s desire, Tim had his doubts about becoming the new Robin, but Bruce told him that he had every confidence in him to be his newly partner. He besides confided in him that he was looking for person with smarts, not merely guts, and Tim had that and more. All that was necessary was that Tim go through intensifier education before taking to the streets in Gotham. This would involve a enlistment overseas, helping Tim understand who he was in accession to learning how to be a great combatant. His beginning catch would be Paris, where he would learn from Rahul Lama, a chinese martial arts master. In Paris, Tim crossed paths with some thugs working for King Snake, who was himself being shadowed by Lady Shiva. Shiva actually joined with Robin and a man named Clyde Rawlins ( who wanted retaliation against Snake for the end of his family ) to help take down King Snake ‘s heroin traffic in the area. not that Shiva was opposed to it for any moral sake, she just wished to learn for herself if King Snake was rightfully equally dangerous as rumors made him out to be—a effective challenge for her talents. together they discovered that King Snake was interest in more than equitable drugs—he was going into the chemical weapons industry, manufacturing his own bubonic plague. They followed the chase to Hong Kong. While there, Shiva trained with Robin some more, and here he first acquired his collapsible contend staff. King Snake ‘s design was actually to unleash his plague into Hong Kong so as to leave it a rotting cesspool before the Chinese reclaimed it from the british. The team split up when they breached his lair. Clyde found him foremost and was promptly killed by Snake. Robin managed to defeat him, but refused to kill him when Shiva ordered him to. He returned to Gotham, ready to take his space alongside the Batman .

The New Boy Wonder

Tim distinguished himself from Jason Todd by being far more reserve in disposition and from Dick Grayson by being more of a detective and less of a big acrobat. Whereas Dick had been brought up from a identical early senesce to be acrobatic, Tim had to work arduous for it. He proved himself more than capable of holding his own in a competitiveness though. however, Batman did have hard-and-fast orders with Tim—whenever he came across a known killer ( such as Joker, Two-Face ) he was supposed to withdraw and summon assistant. unfortunately, Tim was not quite able to follow Batman ‘s orders, and during one of his first gear solo-periods in Gotham without Batman, he found himself confronting Jason Todd ‘s killer, the Joker. Having recently escaped from Arkham, Joker managed to use a hacker to cause the city to digitally self-destruct. Forced to handle the site entirely, Robin was made to confront the Joker who became infuriated at the sight of him, thinking that he had actually failed to kill the former Robin. Upon realizing that this was a newfangled Boy Wonder, Joker swore to kill this one, precisely as he had done Jason. unfortunately for Joker, Tim proved more intelligent than Joker thought, and he was soon defeated and returned to Arkham, where he claimed that Robin was his, and his alone to kill. Around this time, Jack Drake came out of his coma, and with some handling from Tim, purchased a dwelling justly following door to Wayne Manor. This allowed Tim to continue his work as Robin, while besides staying close to his founder. unfortunately for Tim, following the passing of his wife and his near-death, Jack ‘s priorities had shifted. Where before he was more concerned with business than his son, Jack now wanted to develop a close kinship with Tim. unfortunately, Jack became more and more resentful at Tim and Bruce ‘s close relationship and the fact that Tim would constantly disappear and seem to avoid spend time with him. soon after, the Russian Mob began cracking down against the King Snake ‘s arrangement, and once again Robin found himself stuck in the in-between. Batman had ordered Tim to stay clear of it, but Tim found himself unwittingly disobeying his orders, upon meeting a youthful russian girl named Ariana, who ‘s forefather had been murdered by the KGBeast. With the help of Huntress, Robin managed to defeat the King Snake, the Beast, and rescue Ariana who was forced to work in a drug sweatshop after being captured. Ariana would former move in with her aunt and uncle, and then be transferred to Tim ‘s high educate where they would soon start dating. Around the this time, the Cluemaster was released from imprison, purportedly cured of his motivation to leave clues for people to track his crimes. however, clues still managed to appear all over the city, causing Batman and Robin to become confused by the supposed odd behavior of Arthur Brown. While attempting to stop Cluemaster, Robin noticed a female child in a imperial costume leaving the scene. Assuming that she was an accomplice, Tim took chase and not lone caught the girlfriend, but unmasked her, revealing a adolescent blond girl. The girlfriend escaped by using Tim ‘s storm and striking him down with a broken brick. After a agile probe, Tim realized the female child was Cluemaster ‘s daughter Stephanie Brown, who was not working with her father, but trying to stop him. Calling herself Spoiler, Steph teamed up with Batman and Robin and stopped her forefather. Tim was in Gotham City when Bane broke open Arkham Asylum, unleashing about every convict into the city, and was the first to suggest to Batman that Bane was responsible. He set out with the Batman at foremost, and initially they had some beneficial build up, busting up the Mad Hatter ‘s tea party and delivery in a one-half twelve or so hood along with him. They got separated, however, as Robin decided to pursue Bird, one of Bane ‘s lackeys, while Batman went after Victor Zsasz. Robin was briefly captured by Bane and Killer Croc, but managed to escape. He then did some detective sour regarding Firefly, but a physically and emotionally drained Batman ordered him to stay put in the lair while he took on Firefly by himself. He did, however, get some military action when The Riddler held a survive television show hostage ( although he had a bogus fail ) and helped apprehend him. Tim was with Alfred and Jean-Paul Valley when Bane broke Batman ‘s back and threw him from a rooftop in downtown Gotham. They acquired an ambulance and took Bruce back to the Batcave ( despite Tim ‘s initial protestations that he should go to a hospital ). He contacted Jim Gordon to get some medicine Bruce needed. After that, there was nothing he could do but wait and pray aboard Alfred. thankfully, Bruce did not die, though when he awoke he was psychologically scarred, as his defeat from Bane on top of months of exhaustion was a major shock to him mentally ( in accession to his broken back ). Tim could barely stand to watch his mentor so shatter, but he stayed the course, helping Alfred recruit Dr. Shondra Kinsolving to be his personal doctor and smashing up the Porsche to explain how Bruce Wayne could have sustained such injuries. once Bruce was feeling in better spirits, Tim went to talk to him about the escalating ferocity and gang war in Gotham—someone would have to step in for Bruce until he could recover. Bruce turned down Tim ‘s suggestion to get Nightwing, reasoning that he was his own world now with his own responsibilities, which left the undertaking to Azrael, Jean Paul Valley. Tim gave him the costume and taught him a few of Batman ‘s tricks. Bruce ‘s condition was particularly heartbreaking for Tim, given that his own forefather was silent paralyzed ( although Jack had been making remarkable advance ; while distillery wheelchair bind, he had much more feel and could move his arms a set better ). Robin went out with the new Batman ( sometimes referred to by fans as “ Az-Bats ” ) on patrol and was dismayed when Jean Paul kept getting more and more aggressive, pushing the edge when it came to defeating criminals. Robin kept trying to remind Jean Paul that there was more to being Batman than just the costume, but Jean Paul had quickly lost himself in his function. meanwhile, Bruce surmised that since Bane had guessed his unavowed identity, he may have guessed Tim ‘s, and went to the Drake ‘s manor—too late, for Jack Drake was kidnapped barely before he got there. Tim found out that his father was missing when he finally went dwelling ( after Jean Paul made it clear that he would not take directions from him ). Bruce and Alfred had left Gotham to go search for Jack Drake and Shondra Kinsolving ( who had besides been taken ). Tim kept up the pretense that his founder had planned his tripper. Tim felt shut out of the team and the Cave by the meter Nightwing dropped by. Tim filled him in on the position, saying that he blamed himself partially for Jean Paul ‘s behavior, as it had been he who had designed his original costume, which was very similar to a villain Bruce had recently defeated. That, combined with “ the system ”, a kind of brainwashing Azrael had undergo, might have been the lawsuit of his recklessness. Nightwing told him not to blame himself. He besides admitted he was surprise Bruce had n’t asked him to fill in while he was injured. robin showed up when Bane and Jean Paul had their moment spar and managed to save the passengers of an raised train while Az-Bats took down Bane. much to Tim ‘s relief, Jean Paul did not kill Bane and for a here and now considered that possibly Jean Paul was a desirable successor .

Flying Solo

The conclusion of “ Knightfall ” was the begin of Robin ‘s solo series. Although he would hush frequently be a “ guest ” in the even Batman titles ( and likewise Batman would “ guest ” in his ), he now had his own adventures in his own title. many storylines and arch would crossover between the two titles, such as “ Knightquest ”, “ Knightsend ”, “ Prodigal ”, “ infection ”, and “ No Man ‘s Land ”. Despite the fact that Azrael did not kill Bane, he was calm acting heedless, even out of dominance in some instances. The System kept playing havoc with his psyche, and ultimately he snapped and actually attacked Robin in the Batcave. Tim might have died if not for his quick think which caused Jean Paul to regain control of himself. Robin decided it was time to leave—the team was dead without Bruce. So he took his custom made vehicle, the Redbird, and left the Batcave. Tim met up with Ariana Dzerchenko, his girlfriend, for their first go steady in weeks, doing his best to put Jean Paul, Bruce, and even his dad ‘s fade apart for a few hours. The party they went to actually featured some exhilaration when some masked thugs, the Speedboyz tried to carjack another student ‘s car and Tim had to intervene. Later that night, Robin decided to try and track them down, only to be confronted by a local county bull, Steve “ Shotgun ” Smith, who thought that he was one of the carjackers. Robin managed to evade arrest and got to work on tracking down the Speedboyz. He managed to bust up their crowd and leave a earphone call for Shotgun, letting him know who to thank. Going spinal column home, Tim had to blow off Ariana, who was beginning to think that he was seeing person else. Tim decided to make it up to her by taking her to the movies, but his mind kept weave because he had fair learned the Cluemaster and some other thugs had escaped from prison. One was the Electrocutioner, the other was Czonk, who decided to create a new identity for himself, the Baffler, but the others did n’t like it, sol he changed it to Headbanger. Robin got to work investigation, stumbling into Spoiler soon adequate. That did n’t surprise him, as he knew Stephenie was Cluemaster ‘s daughter and figured she ‘d turn up finally. Unlike before, Stephanie was not as aggressive towards Robin, and rather began to flirt unashamedly with him, despite him telling her he was seeing person else. Going to the survive target the gang was seen, Robin and Spoiler discovered a clue that the “ Baffler ” had left for the police. He follows the hint to the gang ‘s burglarize : an armor car robbery, but unfortunately, he and Cluemaster get sealed inside the car and the other two ( not knowing they ‘re in there ) put the car in a pit and begin to cover it with cement. Robin could only wait until the others came back, which ended up being earlier than they planned since the cops were onto them. With some assistant from Spoiler, Robin was saved and Cluemaster and his buddies were sent back to imprison by Smith. Robin bumped into Huntress and helped her out of a jam. She was getting herself involved in a gang war with Mandy Paul and Robin decided to help. He reaffirmed that while he had discovered her substantial identity, he had never told Batman. They came to Mandy ‘s lair only to find a man calling himself Deathangel there, trying to “ send all sinners to God ” via a copulate of pistols. After a firefight where Deathangel fled the fit, Robin and Huntress split up, with Robin following Mandy to a church. Huntress found Robin and Deathangel there, after correctly guessing that he was very Danny DePaolo, Mandy ‘s brother, and he was a priest at that very church. He was suffering from a delusion caused by his sister ‘s evil. Everything lead to a final examination confrontation with Mandy and her goons. Deathangel could not pull the trigger—but his sister could, and she gunned him down. Robin kept Huntress from killing him. Bruce kept his word—he and Alfred found Jack Drake and they returned to Gotham City. Bruce had evening been mystically healed of his break in binding during the trip. Once bet on, Bruce confessed to Tim that he was thinking of permanently staying retired. That all changed when he learned that Azrael had let Abattoir die. Bruce was a little angry at Robin for not doing more to stop Azrael, but Tim replied there was n’t much else he could do—Jean Paul had sealed off the cave and had about killed them in their fight. Breaking into the lair, Bruce and Tim found Jean Paul, who was beyond reason. He did not tied refer to himself by name anymore, but plainly was the Batman in his thinker. Bruce decided he would have to retake the mantle by violence, but he would need a clang course to get up to peak again, and that meant going to Lady Shiva. Tim was barely felicitous to have Bruce and his founder back safely. Robin joined with Nightwing to help Bruce out once he had “ graduated ” from Shiva ‘s train. In the end, however, Bruce had to confront Jean Paul himself. Batman told Robin the job was hush his, and the Dynamic Duo was back in natural process. Jack decided to buy his son a car—or more precisely, a van ( one that was wheelchair accessible ). Tim had another competitiveness with Ariana when he fell asleep while she was trying to talk to him. soon after Bruce ‘s tax return, “ Zero Hour ” came into dangle, a crisis in time itself. The effects dropped a new Dick Grayson ( in his first or second year as Robin ) into the present and he and Tim worked together before Zero Hour began to erase everything. During the team-up, Tim was loath to reveal any details of Dick ‘s future or of Jason Todd, causing Tim to become boggy and foolhardy. After realizing he was acting merely like Jason, Tim began to think things through, allowing for the younger Dick Grayson to appreciate him. Afterwards, Bruce decided he needed some fourth dimension off, and this time he handed the mantle over to the right person—Dick Grayson. Robin and the newly Batman got along great, working against the likes of Two-Face. In his home life, Tim kept trying to make it up to Ariana while his dad kept insisting on some bonding time because of his absence. Jack besides hired Dana Winters to be his personal forcible therapist. On a date with Ariana, some teens picked a crusade, and unfortunately he had to take some hits. He vented his frustration late that night when he went out with Dick. On another night, when he runs into the teens alone, he got his revenge, but it was spoiled when he visited Ariana and found out her uncle had been attacked at his shop by gangsters. Dick ‘s tenure as Batman cursorily came to an goal when Bruce decided to return to the job. That consequence besides brought some retentive needed bring around between Bruce and Dick, who were identical much like father and son. Bruce redesigned his costume, making it colored than ever. Robin then had a run in with the KGBeast, but unlike their concluding brush, he did not have backup. KGBeast was absolutely will to kill him and destroy most of Gotham City. Beast had already put down Harvey Bullock, who only survived because Robin performed CPR on him. The battle against the Beast was tough—Robin was tempted to use Bullock ‘s sidearm, but refused. He managed to defeat him just in prison term for Batman to show up. Bullock was comatose for a while but recovered. Robberies were up recently, and Batman discovered that person was sending very lame clues to the police department from inside Blackgate Prison. Figuring it was the Cluemaster and he would talk to Robin, Batman took Tim to the prison. Cluemaster told them that he was being blackmailed to plan some crimes by some thugs on the outside—and that they had kidnapped Stephanie. Batman tracked down their lair and Robin got there. Robin saved her life, and after changing into her costume, she insisted on coming along. Batman was not amused, but Stephanie told him that Cluemaster had conned them and was in on the whole matter. While Batman went for another old world chat with Cluemaster, Robin and Spoiler stayed put until he tipped them in the right direction, where they rounded up the rest of the gang. Spoiler acted like the whole thing was a date, despite Tim ‘s protestations that it was dangerous commercial enterprise ( and that he had a girlfriend already ). Afterward, Stephaine paid a “ visit ” to her dad in jail, beating him savagely for what he did to her. King Snake turned up in Gotham again, extending his empire there, but after a brief meet with his enforcers aboard Huntress, Robin was told to back off by Batman. Robin future saved the life of Mayor Kroll from a disgruntle city employee, but the credit went to another valet, this one who had recently been fired for trying to blow the whistle on safety violations around the city. Following a couple of bizarre heists, like a neglect lion, Robin stumbled across Ulysses Armstrong, recently released from adolescent hall. Ulysses had recruited a vagrant who was under the impression he was Julius Caesar ( having obviously been influenced by an evenly aimless Maxie Zeus ) and together they plotted a crime spree. With some help from Shotgun Smith, Robin foiled the diagram. Returning home, he discovered Ariana was in his bedroom. She told him she had run away because her uncle was planning on moving away from the city because of the attack on his denounce. Tim might have been in some trouble oneself with his father and the kin maid Mrs. Mac for Ariana spending the night ( she took his board, he slept in the guest room ) — if only Jack ‘s physical flight simulator had n’t come out of his own bedroom. Dana had worked wonders on Jack in more ways than one, obviously. Jack was up and walking approximately with a cane, and apparently despite her being well younger than Jack, Dana and he had begun a quixotic relationship. Robin got to take his mind off things a fiddling by helping Batman investigate a string of local anesthetic robberies that were perpetrated by a gang of amateur ninjas—one of whom died when he fell off a rooftop. The asleep turned out to be a schoolmate of Tim ‘s and he learned that the kid had gone to a Ninja Camp. Robin followed another schoolmate and well took down some of the ninja, though they managed to escape. Tim decided to go clandestine and enrolled at the camp as his alias, Alvin Draper. He impressed the camp leaders enough that they let him in on their kit, provided he could pass one end trial. Robin passed it with flying colors—and the ninja were arrested. Tim got base and learned that Ariana ‘s uncle had sold his memory and they would be moving at the end of the workweek. fortunately, things were n’t therefore badly, thanks to a small serve from Bruce Wayne. Bruce arranged for Lucius Fox and Wayne Enterprises to buy the store at a very generous price—enough for the family to open another store in a better neighborhood and stay in the city. Ariana would even be now going to the same school as Tim. That night on patrol, Robin heard that Killer Moth had broken out. Figuring Moth for a third base tier extremely lightweight, Robin went after him. unfortunately, Moth had precisely sold his soul to Neron during “ Underworld Unleashed ” and been transformed into Charaxes. The atrocious being shredded its way through some cops and evaded a gunfight with Sheriff Smith while capturing Robin—hoping to use him for dinner. Robin was saved by an unknown party before Batman could turn up and Killer Moth was gone. Robin met the new Green Arrow ( Connor Hawke ) about that clock. green Arrow and Spoiler joined Robin to take down some gun runners who were selling guns around Tim ‘s high school. One of Tim ‘s classmates, Karl Ranck, had even been given a gunman by his dad to protect himself, prompting Tim to tell his father. Jack had a talk with Karl ‘s dad, who took the artillery away. Karl then took one of his dad ‘s and was killed in a gunfight at the school. Tim was sol angry that he attacked the gunrunners and may have even killed him, had Stephanie and Connor not been there. Tim spotted Stephanie at Karl ‘s funeral and tried to avoid her, prompting Ariana to misread the situation. then he and Spoiler went after the ridicule who shot Karl, who was partially of a larger street gang. They had to be saved by Batman, who was not happy Robin decided to go at the gang without more backup than Spoiler. He besides reminded Tim that Karl had made the choice to pick up the gun and become a target. When the Contagion virus struck Gotham City, Robin was scrambling with everyone else to find a cure, which put him up against Catwoman concisely. Tim was besides a victim of the virus, but thankfully Azrael and his allies managed to find a cure and Tim was healed. ( see the Contagion entrance for more data ). Returning home after being cured, Tim found Ariana had dyed her haircloth blond in an try to better keep his attention ( thinking that at the funeral, Tim ‘s care towards Stephanie had been because of her hair color ). Wanting to have “ more fun ”, Ari agreed to go on a date with another male child, who then attempted to rape her. She managed to escape before anything could happen. Later, Tim admitted he hated the hair color on her, and was pleased to see she had gone spinal column to black hair’s-breadth, although he did not realize the induce of the variety back. On a showery night, he ran across Maxie Zeus, the death of the Arkham escapees still free. Maxie was quite deranged at this decimal point, and he and his hire hood ( whom he called Heracles ) captured Robin and dragged him along on their burglarize, which was Maxie ‘s version of the Trojan cavalry ( only involving an armored car ). Robin tricked Zeus into letting him call the Oracle, but he managed to free himself and defeat Zeus and his crowd without any help ( although Oracle sending the police did aid ). At a car prove, Tim spotted Ted Grant, aka Wildcat, and was thrilled to be looking at separate of the legend—when Bruce was in education, he anonymously hired Wildcat to teach him to box. Tim besides saw that respective members of the Speedboyz were back and up to their old tricks. Working with Wildcat, Robin stopped the thieves from stealing a new Waynetech prototype cable car. Going to the Batcave, Robin learned some bad news—former Mayor Kroll, a victim the Apocalypse virus who was thought to have been cured, had a relapse and died. Tim, along with Nightwing, traveled abroad to chase Ra ‘s alabama Ghul and ensure that the plague will not come back full push. soon after, Robin met Impulse for the first time, while on a case in Virginia. While Tim ( along with Alfred ) was tracking down a group called White Heat and Mystral, Bart Allen ‘s school was at the same batch lodge on a school ski trip. Tim met Bart early in the trip, and once he saw him in uniform he was able to immediately guess who he was ( ascribable to Bart ‘s large feet and rampantly brown hair’s-breadth ) a lot to Bart ‘s surprise. This would mark the begin of a long and close friendship. Tim hated that he kept having to mislead Ariana—trouble seemed to come up everywhere, even at a scholar outing to “ Macbeth on the Beach ” where Tim had to avoid Helena Bertinelli from recognizing him. What ‘s more, Tim besides had to deal with the retain attention of Spoiler who kept making passes at him while as Robin. During the Final Night, the two of them were trapped in a snowdrift along with a hood who tried to kill them with a chain saw. Spoiler could not understand why Robin tried to save the hood trapped in the coke. While they were digging him out, however, they found a charwoman and her child trapped in the snow and rescued her. Stephanie realized that if they had n’t searched for the bend, they would have never found the mother and child. “ cosmopolitan ” Ulysses Armstrong got out on parole and Robin decided to drop him a visit at home, reminding him that he should stay in line. He knew that Armstrong would not do so, however, and certain enough the child soon joined up with the Toyman ( Winslow Schott ) to try and steal the miniature collection of a local character, Phillip Crouch. Robin tracked them to Crouch ‘s manor, where a fight broke out with some high-tech, deadly toys. Toyman betrayed Armstrong, however, and Robin had to rescue him and stop them both. Both were arrested. As a youthful child, Bruce Wayne enjoyed watching Roy Raymond, a television receiver criminologist. His son, Roy Raymond Jr., had a television receiver show where he called himself Manstalker, a testify of dramatizations of real crimes. Tim thought the display was a joke, but it could n’t take his mind off things—Ariana had been a little distant recently, and his acquaintance Ives was keeping secrets besides. On patrol, Robin found Slyfox and his crew trying to rob an insurance company, and Manstalker and his television receiver crew arrived on scene during a special episode. Robin had to destroy the tape in the camera before heading after the hoods, which he apprehended. While Spoiler was out getting into some perturb with Lynx and her goons, Tim was over at Ariana ‘s to spend some time with her. He got the traumatize of a life while they were entirely at her house and she walked out of her room in a aphrodisiac nightgown, wanting to sleep with him. Tim ultimately learned about the ridicule who had tried to rape her. Although it never got very far, but it left her feeling very frighten and vulnerable. Tim told her that he loved her and said it would be best if they waited, since they were so young. unfortunately, while Tim and Ariana were sharing a tender moment, her uncle and aunt walked in and saw them. Her uncle was not in the mood to listen for an explanation. Tim had to bible it before Vari strangled him. He decided to go on patrol, where he ran into Spoiler and she explained about Lynx ‘s Ghost Dragons. Robin agreed to work with her, but the Dragons proved besides much for them to handle and they had to back off. Robin knew he should tell her to give up being Spoiler, but he barely could n’t do it. soon, Tim learned that the alone confidential Ives was keeping was that he had a job dressing as a giant shiner at a syndicate restaurant. Ariana, however, was transferred to an all girl ‘s educate. Tim kept thinking about Spoiler, and when he went to meet her, he found out she had been kidnapped by Czonk, who was back to calling himself the Baffler. Despite being one of the dumbest goons in Gotham, the Baffler managed to tie up Robin and Spoiler and planned on leaving them to die in an previous project build that was being demolished. He knocked himself out, however, and so they ended up having to save him deoxyadenosine monophosphate well as themselves. Afterward, Robin told Stephanie she might have to stop being Spoiler. When he got home ( early on the next day ) he found his dad back from his late lecture tour—and Jack had spoken to Ariana ‘s uncle. Tim was grounded, but tied when forbidden from leaving his room he placid managed to solve a crime via watching the news .

second Sabbatical

During the Genesis crisis, Robin was ineffective to save a hood who tried to kill him from drowning. Feeling depressed, Robin however had to head for the front-lines—this fourth dimension literally. Armstrong was back, this time as the adviser to Ali Ben Khadir, a claimant to the throne of the Karoccan Emirate. His equal was being backed by Qurac. With Nightwing ‘s help and a Waynetech coal-black, Robin went over to the war-torn area ( the conflict was escalating with the appearance of more mercenaries on either side, such as Deadline ( whom Robin managed to easily take down ). Nightwing managed to stop two armies from clashing outside the capital while Robin penetrated Armstrong ‘s lair. He found that Armstrong and his employer had had a falling out, so the boy was arrested and Robin withdrew. Robin had Nightwing drop him off in France, saying that recently he ‘d been feeling lost and decided he needed to step back for a while. He thought Paris was the right field set to start, since his discipline had never in truth ended there. Knowing that Rahul Llama was dead, Tim decided to train in the class of the Iron Master, although he remained in his identity as Robin. He stopped a erstwhile student from stealing from the master and besides met a girl named Dava Sborscs. The daughter was there to learn a single move to add to her armory of deadly moves. She wanted to be able to fight in the war that was destroying her native country of Transbelvia. After she left, Lady Shiva arrived looking for her. Robin had to withdraw, leaving the Iron Master to fight her alone, and she killed him. King Snake was besides involved again, this meter selling weapons to Transbelvia. Robin went after Dava to warn her about Shiva. Back in Gotham, Jack Drake, Ariana, and Spoiler were all wondering what had happened to Tim. Robin found Dava, a rebel fighting against the oppressive regimen, and she has a secret—a limited chemical called Aramilla that allows her to move at super-speed. together, they easily took down some military thugs—but then Shiva turned up. not volition to step apart and let her murder Dava, Robin attacked. not even Shiva could stand up to Robin moving at super-speed. Losing manipulate, Robin beat her to death—just in time for King Snake to saunter in. While Dava fought King Snake and his minions, Robin performed CPR and managed to revive Shiva—unfortunately, she had absorbed some of the Aramilla, and at super-speed she took down all of King Snake ‘s men and went after him herself. Robin left them to fight each other and brought an hurt Dava to condom. But the war continued, and Robin decided it was ultimately time to return home. unfortunately, on the flight home, Gotham City was struck by the Cataclysm, a massive earthquake that leveled most of the city .

No Man ‘s Land

Robin joined with Batman and the rest of the “ family, ” overwhelmed at the dear total destruction of the stallion city. There was little that Robin could do in such chaos, and Batman had him stay out of most of the city. fortunately, the Drake home plate, in one of the outer neighboring communities, suffered merely minor damages and they were able to repair it.

  • Nightwing is like a brother to him emotionally. Both Dick and Tim, along with Cassandra Cain and Jason Todd were all adopted by Bruce Wayne.
  • Blue Beetle (Ted Kord) was his favorite superhero and a good friend of his.
  • Tim’s girlfriends have been surrounded by dangerous circumstances: Ariana Dzerchenko, daughter of a deli owner targeted and murdered by the Russian mob; gang leader Lynx who’s brother was murdered and who she herself has been killed, resurrected and killed again; Darla Aquista, daughter of a mafia boss who later is killed and resurrected as a witch-demon; fellow vigilante Spoiler, daughter of the Cluemaster and who faked her own death, with whom he has his longest relationship; and even Marvel Universe’s Jubilee who’s parents were murdered by the mob.
  • Both Superboy & Impulse (in an issue of Young Justice) once commented on how “their” comics had been canceled yet some heroes, who were no less worthy just seem to go on, at this point Robin walks in and both of his friends give him the “evil” eye when he asks “what?”
  • Tim has been propositioned for sex twice in the comics. First by his now ex-girlfriend Ariana and later by his former-teammate Ravager. On both occasions he refused (although with the latter he was forced to handcuff Rose in order to stop her).
  • Tim has assumed the Batman mantle twice. Once when he and Batman switched ages during the Sins of the Youth Young Justice storyline and again when Bruce Wayne was seemingly killed and Nightwing refused to take up the cape and cowl. Tim is supposedly destined to become Batman in an alternate future.
  • In the course of two years (continuity-wise), Tim has had his father, Superboy, Spoiler, Kid Flash, Blue Beetle, and possibly even his stepmother Dana, die on him. Superboy, Kid Flash, and Spoiler did not, however, “stay dead”.
  • Tim’s birthday is July 19th.
  • In LEGO Batman: The Videogame, Robin’s costume and mask is based off of Tim Drake’s original comic book appearance, only difference was the sleeves on the arms were short (with green gloves) in the comics but the sleeves were long (with black gloves) as a LEGO minifigure.
    • His original costume barely resemble Dick Grayson’s costume from “Batman Forever” due to the long green sleeves and black gloves.
    • His original hairpiece and cape is based off of Dick Grayson’s original hair style and yellow cape in the comics.
  • In Batman: The Animated Series, Dick Grayson’s Robin costume is exactly the same as Tim Drake’s original costume in the comics.
