I don't have anything against blue-skins. I just don't think there needs to be an agenda to have more of them in my comics!

A black Robin would put us one step closer to seeing Will Smith play Batman on the big screen.

Hope he gets an Oscar nom for playing Mandela.

well said,

what i don't like is casting or reinventing a previous character with a different nationality for no reason. If you want to make a black Robin that's cool, just don't start calling him Dick Grayson or Tim Drake


Drake as Robin? Now that would be interesting. But would that mean Johnny Manzell would play Batman?
