The Current Storyline
If some dark, mysterious crime fighter kept replacing teen sidekicks, wouldn’t people start to wonder? Somehow, I see Nocturnowl showing up again….
Bill, I love these riffs at current comic characters! What’s next? The Fantastic Three!?!
Or Fantastic Five
I guess Night Owl is taken. Nocturnowl works. I love it!
Honestly, I’m surprised Superman, Wonder Woman or Flash haven’t done this to Batman yet. I mean, Bruce has gone through 5 Robins, 4 Batgirls, and several additional sidekicks.
After a point…
Ah yes… The never-ending stream of little birds.
While there is certainly some question about motive whenever an extremely rich man doesn’t have adult women in his life, but finds reasons to keep underage boys and girls in his household, I always thought robin’s role was “decoy.”
“OK Robin, I’ll sneak up on the bad guys in my completely dark outfit, you go around the other way wearing the brightest primary colors we could find. Make sure to shout my name or something loudly like ‘Holy smokes Batman’ so they know where to look and that you are with me.”
Of course, whenever the criminals have guns, he ends up needing a new Robin, and when a Robin actually survives to adulthood they ditch the bright red and yellow for more sensible black.
