Robin War, DC’s new event series about the army of teens running around Gotham in the name of Batman’s sidekick, is pretty much all about the identity of Robin, and what it means to take on that mantle—but for one Robin in particular, Dick Grayson, it seems like it’s all about another particular mantle.
DC are planning a few changes to their ongoing series ahead of the Convergence event hitting their titles soon, but according to Batman writer Scott Snyder, the end of the Dark Knight's current arc could transform the character, as well as his ward Robin, in some pretty significant ways.
Holy Erithacus rubecula, Batman! This is just too damn cute. Flickr User CakeInMilk has given Lego Batman - complete with 60's style Lego Batmobile - a new partner in crime: An adorable Robin that looks like... err, Robin!
I... I would have joked about it, but it seemed too absurd to even make fun of. But here we are, and Gotham showrunner Bruno Heller has announced in all apparent seriously that Gotham will feature Robin's ultimate origin, when his acrobat father and mother meet. I have no words.
Thanks to DC's Diamond Previews solicits for January 2015, the next person to step into the green boots of Batman's sidekick Robin has been revealed. Since it's a spoiler, the reveal is after the jump — but I do feel confident the new Robin's identity will not shock you. Something else will, however.
Tim Burton was originally going to helm a third Batman movie after Batman Returns, but the studio bumped him from the director's chair in favor of Batman Forever director Joel Schumacher. But this concept art gives us one possible look for Burton's version of Robin.
There have been a handful of Robins over the years, but thus far, none of them has been a bear. As this animation by Cale Atkinson proves, that's a rather large and hairy oversight.
Get ready for some face-melting adorableness. Illustrator Alex Law has been turning little girls' superhero dreams into comic book reality. It's so sweet, we wish every girl on the planet got this special treatment.
It looks like Carrie Kelley, the female Robin to Grumpy Old Batman in Frank Miller's classic The Dark Knight Returns, is joining the DC universe proper. She's on the gatefold cover of Batman and Robin #19 (which comes out next Wednesday) in a Robin costume. Does this mean she'll actually be the next Robin? Maaaaybe.
In a world where everything seems to change — like the look and format of your favorite website — it can be nice to know some things stay the same — like your friendly fake post-apocalyptic mailman. This week, we look at how Gotham City will have the Damian Wayne’s death, an odd amount of Star Wars-related politics,…
It's still a little weird to say out loud, but The CW's Green Arrow show Arrow is good. Like, really good. Like, a perfect match of superheroics, accessibility and non-superheroic drama for mass audiences, and with no need for budget-busting special effects. It's possibly the perfect superhero TV show, and it got us…
My apologies for the lack of a spoiler warning, but DC has gone out of its way to let comics fans know that, if they pick up Grant Morrison's Batman, Inc. #8 this Wednesday, they will read about the death of Damian Wayne, Bruce Wayne's assassin-trained son and the current Robin. The news was announced earlier today…
Batman and Robin have been through dozens of strange scenarios, but few compare to the time the Boy Wonder ambushed the Cape Crusader for some Eastern Promises-style fisticuffs. Such a scene went down in 1983's Batman #356. I'm particularly fond of the final panel, where it's sort of unclear if Bruce Wayne is…
Did you enjoy the funny New Teen Titans shorts spread throughout the past few months of DC Nation on Saturday mornings? Then there's good news — they're getting their own full fledged series this fall.
Superhero romance is a bit like unstable nitroglycerine, in that A.) it's very rarely handled well; and B.) it often blows up in everybody's face. Here are ten times your favorite crime-stoppers experienced relationship foibles mere mortals like you and I can barely comprehend. Remember when Superman made an adult…
When artist Karl Heitmueller Jr. was a kid, he drew a completely off-the-wall interpretation of Batman that had absolutely nothing to do with bats. Upon discovering this illustration as an adult, he knew that it was ripe for revisiting:
In an alternate universe, there exists a version of Tim Burton's first Batman film where Michael Keaton's Batman is attended by a plucky teenaged Robin. And that Robin would be played by Kiefer Sutherland.
Spider-Man and Venom may be fearsome foes, but if they put their heads (but not their bodies) together, they can create some truly adorable moments. See Superman, Supergirl, Robin, Poison Ivy, and the Thing get in on the cute action.
