So obviously there’s still a bit of a buzz about Damian Wayne’s death and everything but it’s been about, what? a year and a half now?
With all these familiar(And one new) faces popping up in the New 52, it leaves the question, who will be the next Robin?
Right now, Harper Row is a less likely candidate to take up the mantle of Robin as she is currently working with Batman under the alias of Bluebird. Though, we can’t really rule anything out. It’s still a strong possibility.
Harper has the heart to be Robin but again, she’s Bluebird so it’s less likely. While at the same time, Tim Drake is also available to re-take the mantle of Robin should he choose to. He’s actually the most qualified out of all the people presented above. For one, he was Robin in the past (Though due to continuity issues, he never officially went under the name Robin) and not to mention he obviously has the physical and mental capabilities that it would take.
Then there’s the fact that Carrie Kelley has been brought into the New 52 and I think fans are liking the idea of her being the official Robin. But as far as I’ve analyzed, that would be the only reason she should be Robin, because the fans like her. Though that isn’t a bad thing. If Bruce gives her the proper training in a proper amount of time, she could easily fill the role.
But then there’s the fact that these are comic books and Damian is likely to be revived at some point. Though it might not be soon as Ra’s Al Ghul already attempted to bring both him and Talia back using something similar to a Lazarus Pit that was located in Themyscria but was intercepted by Batman and Wonder Woman.
Those are my thoughts. What are yours?
