POLL! I need your answers!
Greetings Fellow Forum Vistors,
A friend and I are looking at putting together a story, based in the Batman Beyond time period, where Tim comes back to help in a very interesting situation. Would Tim still go by the name Robin, but with a new costume, or would he have outgrown the "boy wonder" persona, and have become another? Your comments, name ideas, and costume ideas are wanted. A few suggestions my friend and I had were:
I take it you're ignoring the plot of 'Return of the Joker'?
Okay, fine by me. I personally doubt no matter what happened between, say, the events of 'Legacy' and 'Rebirth' that Tim would still be in costume. However, I can see Tim going back into costume for one of those 'one last time' ventures.
Definilty not as Robin, of course. If he had continued with being a vigilante long enough to grow out of the Boy Wonder persona I see him developing a costume similar to Nightwing's. I would avoid the name Hawk to not get confusion over the fact there is already a Hawkgirl and Hawkman. And Crimson Falcon reminds me of the movie 'The Maltease Falcon'. If you ever want to know where people get those jokes about film noir - watch that.
My own feelings are, of all the futures suggested for Tim in comics, cartoons, and fanfic, my favorite is a very interesting take off of 'The Boys from Brazil', an elseworlds fanfic in which Tim becomes a peditrican and works with sick kids in Gothom and in thrid world countries.
