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.
