Tim went solo in 1993 and had a successful ongoing comic series. Dick Grayson is the first and the most well known, but Tim got to hold several mini-series plus his regular series that was over 183 issues (not counting annuals plus extra oddly numbered issues). This video review is based on his first story arc in his regular series that spread from Detective Comics #668. Going out completely on his was a gutsy move for being as inexperienced as he was, but it was a great journey. Major Spoilers in this video.

It is the conclusion to the Lonely Place of Living storyline that returns Tim Drake back to the DC Universe. Him and the rest of the BatFamily have to face off against his older counter part who is attempting to kill Batwoman. The older Tim Drake is the Batman of Tomorrow who has trained his whole life to defeat them all. So this is not so easy, even with all of the Batfamily together. Major spoilers in the attached video.

It’s the second part of the storyline – A Lonely Place of Living – that features the return of Tim Drake. There are some huge storyline ramifications that deal with the DC Universe as a whole and could totally change up what we knew about the current history. This is HUGE! Major spoilers in this video.

My boy and favorite superhero of all time, Tim Drake aka Red Robin, is back! He’s been locked up by Mr. Oz for reasons unknown, but not for long. He’s breaking out and teaming up with some other inmates. MAJOR SPOILERS in this review.

Tim Drake’s origin is being restored somewhat in the upcoming Detective Comics storyline – A Lonely Place of Living. A preview came from MultiversityComics.com that shows an updated version of Tim’s origin that looks much more familiar than what is currently being passed as his origin. If you are not aware of it, his origin was drastically altered when the DC Comics event called Flashpoint created what is called the New 52. His entire identity was taken. Literally. In the New 52 universe, his real name is not even suppose to be Tim Drake and his parents are in a witness protection program. Also, he was never known as Robin but always went as Red Robin…ugh I hated that. So this change is great news to me.


Unless you are new to my site, then you probably already know that Timothy Jackson Drake aka Red Robin is my favorite superhero of all time. Not just sidekick. Favorite overall. In my humble opinion, he’s also the best of the Robins to have existed. He held his own comic book ongoing series for over a decade. He was my definitive Robin. Taking his identity and making him an arrogant douchebag just spit on his character who fought and had to prove himself as being able to take up the mantle of Robin.


How will his new/original origin be incorporated into the current DC Universe? How is it that the original Robin costume (Jason Todd’s) shown in the case will be placed back into continuity as well? So many questions!!! I’m dying here. If you are reading this, thank you for indulging me. I am quite excited about this. We’ll start to get answers starting 9/27/2017. I am excited!


It’s comic book day! So many great comics came out today. I could not get to all of them, but here’s what I did get to read.
Star Wars #26 – A back story with Yoda is always awesome!
Civil War II #8 – The Conclusion to this Marvel epic title is finally finished.
Hulk #1 – Jennifer Walters is taking the title of the Hulk after the death of her cousin Bruce Banner in the Civil War II story.
Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corp #11 – Hal is finally going to meet up with the rest of the Green Lantern Corp after Larfleeze has captured all of them.
Spider-Man #11 – Miles Morales dad is an agent of SHIELD and is probably going to go back into action.
Wonder Woman #13 – Diana is not taking her backstory being fake very well. She has gone into a crazy state that will affect her next storyline.
Batman Beyond #3 – Terry is under cover as a Joker Gang member, but we discover something very huge in the conclusion of this issue.
Detective Comics #947 – We get a glimpse of what happened to Tim Drake. Not much, but I’ll take it! We need a return of this character back to the DC Universe.

Tim Drake is the bestest of the Robins in my opinion. The Joker’s Wild storyline is his first adventure in Gotham City while taking on the Joker without Batman. The story was originally published back in 1991 and helps establishes Tim’s supporting cast and also shows that he still has a far road ahead to being as strong of a superhero that he aspires to become.

Totally not expecting this issue to end in this way. Lots of speculation as to the overall storyline within the DC Universe that is being affected by the REBIRTH titles. Tim Drake is a major player and his role will be much different from this point forward. Major SPOILERS in this video.

Robin Ryan

This is old news as he has been campaigning to Ben Affleck for the past week, but actor Ryan Potter wants to be Tim Drake aka Robin in the upcoming Batman movie. I support this in every way! He looks the part, he can has the martial arts background, and he is a Tim Drake fan…I love this guy!

In the DC Cinematic Universe, Dick Grayson is already suppose to be Nightwing. Jason Todd is more than likely the Robin that is shown to be dead as witnessed from the Robin uniform that is vandalized in the Bat Headquarters (or possibly he’s running around as another character). So Tim Drake would be the next natural progression as the next Robin.

Some haters don’t like the idea that Ryan is half Japanese. But he is also half American. So I say, just focus on his half American side if there’s an issue with that. I think his half Japanese side makes him look even more like Tim. Besides, not every character can be pandered to white heterosexual fanboys.

Tim Drake was never the best fighter out of the BatFamily but he sure as hell could still fight. He was trained by several masters and is a badass. Ryan released a quick choreographed fight sequence on YouTube recently to help show case his own talents. He is pretty darn awesome. Check out the video below.

A Lonely Place of Dying 2.Movie_Snapshot

This is the first introduction of Timothy Jackson Drake-Wayne into the DC Comics Universe. Tim had been introduced in Batman 436 in a flashback issue and then fully explored as a full character in Batman 440. He is one of the few characters in the DC Universe that found uncovered Batman’s secret identity on his own. He later became one of the greatest of all Batman’s sidekicks and took the mantle of Robin and later Red Robin. This is his origin story.
