Robin retired from active duty to practice law, and then as ambassador to the United Nations. He was semi-retired up until the advent of the
Super Squad. Therefore, he didn't really have 40 years of crime fighting experience.
> > Here is a question I am unsure of. Is the Earth 2 Robin still alive or did he really get killed by the Anti Monitor's shadow people minions in Crisis on Infinate Earths?? I hear some talk from Batman fans I know who say Robin 2 is definately alive but I think they are talking about Jason Todd. Can anyone clarify this maybe something happened in DC Countdown I was unaware of??
> > Also did the Earth 2 Robin have more experience? I think he could have since the Earth 2 Batman retired at some point I believe and became comissioner of Gotham City before he died. In theory the Earth 2 Robin would be a more mature experienced version of any Robin I can think of (including the mainstream DCU Dick Grayson)aka Nighwing

But he was active as a crimefighter in the 40s, 50s, and 60s. He joined the JSA in the 60s and was featured in various JLA/JSA team-ups in the 70s. His ambassadorship and law practice were "wedged" in there. He became more active in 1976 with the Super Squad and JSA. After the Batman died, he became less active, letting the Huntress handle things in Gotham City. He then started up again around the time that Infinity Inc. formed and he was active until the Crisis hit. I'd say he has at least 30+ years of crime fighting experience. Scott
