> > At the time of the Crisis, using your starting age, Robin was 55. And Robin did semi-retire when he reached adulthood, but he was also still semi-active. You still have 26 years of active experience plus his semi-active years. I'd give him 4 years for that. In either view, he has had plenty of crimefighting experience. I think the original posters point of view was publishing history not the actual comic book stories.

Wasn't Robin affected by the Ian Karkull spell? I always thought that that's what kept him pretty much in his prime until the 1980s. He must've spent at least a decade in his teens, right?

That must have been really weird for a while. I couldn't imaging looking 16 with a 25 year old mental experience. That almost seems perverse.

He was. But his grey hair was flowing by the mid-70s and colored almost all grey by the time of AMERICA VS. THE JUSTICE SOCIETY.
