    Oddly it just occurred to me that Tim Drake could become the new Mister Terrific. He seems to be smart enough. (The only thing I like about this weird thought is that it gets Tim out of Batman's shadow.)

Out of Batman's shadow and into Terry Sloan's? Or Michael Holt's? Seems like a step down. From the sidekick of an A-lister to the sidekick of a B-lister. All respect to Holt who's a great character.


      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.

    It would really be interesting to see Tim being his own kind of hero, separate from Batman.

Give him his own identity, like Barbara as Oracle. I know that kind of thing rarely works but maybe Tim could be one that does.
