    Tim Drake (Robin)
    Kyle Rayner (Green Lantern)
    Kon-El (Superboy)
    Linda Danvers (Supergirl)
    Cassandra Cain (Batgirl)

    So what's your verdict?

    Tim or Damian?

    Tim or Dick Grayson? (Which would mean retiring the Robin identity, since Dick isn't using it.)

I like Tim more. I thought he was just a really well thought out character (before the new 52). Probably one of the best comic book characters ever IMO.

Sometimes I would be reading Nightwing and wonder what the point of that book was. With Tim it seemed like the writers took time to show how him and Batman are not alike in many ways and worse you would see he does share some of his worst habits (being manipulative) in a way I don't think Nightwing ever could connect with Bruce on. Tim seemed like the guy who had the potential to be better than Batman but who really never wanted to be.

    Kyle or Hal?

John. And if I had to give second place...Guy.

    Kon-El or Jon?


    Linda or Kara?


    Cassandra or Barbara?


    I personally prefer Batman with Robin, because I think the teamwork is part of what makes the victories believable, and because Alfred becomes doubly relevant when he has two people (instead of just one) to worry about, fuss over, and snark at. So for me it's a choice between Tim and Damian. And I have to admit, Damian is cool.

I've always hated Batman with a Robin. But I liked Tim enough to overlook it. I probably enjoyed his solo series more than his missions in Batman's titles.

    I never really believed in Kyle as a Green Lantern. He just never had the gung-ho attitude I expect in a galactic soldier/cop.
