Controversial topic number 1: who’s the best Robin?

So. There have been about as many Robin’s as there are Spiderman movies.

Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, Tim Drake, Stephanie Brown, Tim Drake again, Damian Wayne, Carrie Kelly…..

But who is the best? Tough question!

And yes, there is a right answer. Here it is.

First lets introduce and eliminate some Robins.

imageDick Grayson was the first and most famous Robin of all. But is he the best? He certainly made the yellow ‘R’ and red and green tights famous, but his fame and skill didn’t reach it’s peak until he broke from the bat and became Nightwing! So he’s out!

imageJason Todd was only Robin for a short time before being beaten to death by the Joker with a crowbar and left to die in a bomb blast. Although he eventually came back as Red Hood, his time as Robin was ended quickly. So he’s out!

imageCarrie Kelly was the Robin in Frank Miller’s gritty Epic The Dark Knight Returns. She’s certainly got some certificates in badassery, however she’s not technically in the main universe so she’s out. But it’d be a shame not to mention her.

imageNext is Stephanie Brown. She was really only ‘Robin’ for a few issues, the rest of the time she was starting gang wars as spoiler and breaking them up to earn Batman’s trust. Then she died. So she’s out.

imageNext is Damian Wayne. He’s out. Hate him. He’s alright as a concept, and the development with him and Dick as Batman is interesting but he is literally the worst.

imageWhich leaves the one and only Tim Drake. He is legitimately the best Robin. He trained with Alfred, Nightwing and Bruce, his detective skills are the best of any Robin, he made the classic Bo-staff famous, he was the first Robin to have a solo title as a hero in his own right, not just a sidekick. And also he had the best costume! So Tim is king. Don’t think so, I’ll fight you.

So that’s that! Hopefully you agree! Β It’s all matter of my opinion, of course!

Now here’s a funny picture.

The Great Game. aka 20 Questions.

The Game is Afoot!

Appreciate the Sherlock reference? Good! Just answering a few questions (20 to be exact!) to let you inside my mind!

Question Number the First: What is your name? Austin Geoffry Keith Burrows!

Question Number the Second: What is your Quest? To force my opinions on strangers on the internet!

Question Number the Third: What is your favourite colour? Blue!

Question Number the Fourth: Where do you live? I COME FROM THE LAND DOWN UNDER! LA LA LA VEGEMITE SANDWICH!

Question Number the Fifth: Marvel or DC? Marvel over DC… Wait.. DC over Marvel!

WAIT! Marvel. DC…………… Batman. Just Batman.

Question Number the Sixth: Favourite Movie? The Dark Knight! The best Batman movie to date, and even if it’s not for long, I’ll always have the sentimental attachment to it.

Question Number the Seventh: How tall are you? 6’4! so, Tall! but a skinny tall.

Question Number the Eighth: Do you have any siblings? I have two older Siblings! A 28 year old brother and a 25 year old sister!

Question Number the Ninth: Favourite food? I LOVE ITALIAN FOOD!!

Question Number the Tenth: What is the last thing you bought? Β I’ve been working on a Urban Batman cosplay so I bought some armour for that. (Half way there. Go grab a drink, take a break, I’ll wait…)

Question Number the Eleventh: (Welcome back!) Favourite Marvel Hero? Either Wolverine or Spiderman… I do love Cap too though.

Question Number the Twelfth: Favourite DC Hero? I’d love to say Batman, but I recently went back and read some Nightwing, the Bludhaven arc to be exact. And I just love Dick’s journey after he breaks away from Bruce. So, Nightwing is my favourite DC character at the moment.

Question Number the Thirteenth: Favourite style of music? Music.. I really don’t have a ‘favourite’. But I was pretty much raised by Elvis and Sinatra, so I’d say Swing/Crooners.

Question Number the Fourteenth: Favourite TV series? Okay this changes almost daily! I’ll do an article on this in a few weeks! But off the top of my head, I’d have to say… TV.

Question Number the Fifteenth: If you could have any superheroes powers for a day, who’s would it be? Arm-Fall-Off-Boy! Who wouldn’t love to be able to pop their arms off and use them as a bat-like weapon…… yes, that’s a real power. no, it’s not my real answer. I’d probably pick Martian Manhunter. I just think he has it really well. He won the power jackpot! All the powers of Superman, Plus Shape-shifting, Telepathy, Invisibility, Intangibility all kinds of cool!

Question Number the Sixteenth: If you could live in a fantasy world, which one would it be? I’d love to be a Jedi, like before they all got slaughtered.

Question Number the Seventeenth: Favourite Cartoon? The old JLU animated series.

Question Number the Eighteenth: What are your hobbies besides movies and comic books? I love to sing and dance/perform on stage in general. I want to be a professional actor.

Question Number the Nineteenth: Relationship status? As Taken as Liam Neeson’s Family.

Question Number the Twentieth: What is most important in life? Serious answer time here. All I really want out of life is to share the things that I love with others, and hopefully inspire the same kind of passion.

 

So that’s me! Hopefully you enjoyed this little taste of me. That sounds dirty ahahahahah

Peace out Homies!
