there's no welching...i never said anything as stupid as "you guys are all crazy, he doesn't die in issue 8". i said he won't stay dead. if you bet on something else, that's a problem with your reading comprehension, not me. :lol:

Just to be clear, I think Batman should be mentoring someone, it brings out the best in him, but not a kid.

Well, who knows at this point. I think the amount of Robins are a bit ridiculous even with one of them now gone. I think when they nu52'd everything, they should have gone back to one Robin only, then eventually let him turn to Nightwing and maybe years down the road replace him with another. But trying to make it like Batman went through five in a few years didn't make much sense. As it is now, let Bruce go solo a while and let the robins all go on their merry way.

Tim Drake was never Robin in the DCnU though. He was Red Robin. :P

I don't believe that's technically true: wasn't Dick legally adopted several years ago, making him officially Bruce's son? :)

Yes, officially Dick and Tim are Bruce's sons, and... at the end of Batgirl: Redemption he announced he was adopting Cassandra as well. That makes three sons and a daughter.

Seriously, Bruce Wayne is the Mia Farrow of the DCU.

The majority of my fave Batman stories ever don't feature Robin or any of his "family" I prefer Batman working solo with Alfred.

I don't want to do an Avengers movie and insult adopted people, but being his biological son since the beginning is different from having a retconned-in adoption. For most of Dick Grayson's history, he was just a 'ward'.
