Rumour has it...

... TPTB have decided that DCnU-Tim Drake is going to never have been Robin.

I think this is a short-sighted move from them (assuming the rumour to be true), but, although Tim-Drake-as-Robin is probably second only to Bruce/Batman in terms of comics characters that hold personal meaning to me, I don't feel as slighted by the retcon as I initially thought I would be.

When you get right down to it, Tim Drake-as-things-other-than-Robin was probably around half of my overall fannish output, right? It's likely that they have also changed his personality in ways that would make me angry, should I read the material, but the change on his resume isn't, on itself, something that puts me off.

Well, I already knew that the era I loved was dead, but still.

Considering that Dick had been earmarked for training as an Owl, I think we're this close to finding out that Jim Gordon works for St. Dumas, or something like that.

What that f now? Seriously? I was already really pissed at this new 52 crap and now they are erasing my Timmy/Robin? I'm totally done now. Except for now pilliaging for all the back issues of Robin that I am missing so I have a complete set, and can just revel in the olden days whenever I feel the need.

Huh. I can understand why a lot of younger fans might be upset by this news, but really, Dick was always Robin to me. Everyone else in that identity has been like, IDK, kids dressing up in Dad's (or in this case older brother's) clothes.

It's interesting how these things go. I never think of myself as a younger fan, yet it's true that my canonical Robin is Robin III *g*.
