I know nobody gives a fuck about my opinion, but I don’t want a new Robin.
JFC, can’t we at least have a goddamn grace period?
This IS our grace period. Jason only got about a year of so before Tim arrived. Steph got nothing. Damian gets 7+ months.
I thought Jason got like 5 years? He died in the mid-80s, and Tim was introduced in the 90s, wasn’t he? Steph getting no grace period is a very valid point, though, and just made everything they did with her in War Games even grosser.
Inevitably when I am arguing with someone about Jason being a good Robin, and he was a good Robin, they fall back on the argument that people only think so because Red Hood is popular.
But the thing is I’ve read Jason’s run as Robin, no not the flashbacks, or all the times other characters talk about him in the past, the actual issues where he’s Robin. How can anyone read those and think he wasn’t good? Even in the issues where the writer hated him, he still wasn’t awful.
I’m sorry which one of us is falling for the snowjob now? Hmm? I’m pretty sure it’s not me. Yes they painted him to be a bad Robin after his death, but that’s the retcon, but that’s not what’s in the books.
