Speculation about whether or not Robin will appear in The Dark Knight Rises has been going on for a long time now. Nolan has made it clear that there is no place for Robin in his Bat-world, which you think would end it all right there. But not us fanboys, no sir. We have to keep looking, keep hoping, keep pining for that little bit extra out of a film. Let’s take a look at some of the other Robin/Nightwing rumors that have shown up over the course of the film’s production.
Welcome to Geeking Out. This is me, geeking out. It’s pretty self explanatory.
The second season of Young Justice (subtitled Invasion) premiered this morning, and it pretty much blew my mind to useless bits of nerdy gray stuff. I thought nothing could get better than the already stellar first season, where we were introduced to the Team, a group of former sidekicks running special ops missions for the Justice League. Now that already sounds pretty bad ass right? The original team consisted of Robin (Dick Grayson), Aqualad, Kid Flash, and Superboy, with new members Artemis and Miss Martian joining shortly after.

In this latest installment of our look at DC’s Brand New #1’s I think I’m going to tackle DC’s stable of Teen heroes. Up until a few years ago this was the main difference between Marvel and DC, as Marvel was not known for its teen heroes after the death of Bucky in the 40’s. Things of course change as the years go on, but DC has always been the front-runner when it comes to the teen heroes. All series descriptions are from CBR.
Teen Titans #1
Tim Drake is forced to step out from behind his keyboard when an international organization seeks to capture or kill super-powered teenagers. As Red Robin, he must team up with the mysterious and belligerent powerhouse thief known as Wonder Girl and a hyperactive speedster calling himself Kid Flash in TEEN TITANS #1, by Scott Lobdell and artists Brett Booth and Norm Rapmund.
So we find out where Tim Drake stands in the DC Nu, as well as a decidedly new look for one of my favorite characters. They of course all get a pretty drastic makeover, as well as some new characters I can’t place. I’m not sure how I feel about Tim’s wings, Superboy’s barcode tattoo, or Wonder Girl being referred to as a thief, but we’ll have to see how it plays out.
