Quote: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.
Quote: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.
Quote: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.
