While some foolish fans might
think Robin is lame, that just proves they haven’t been reading Batman comics
for the last 20 years. For the preceding two decades Robin has been less useless
Boy Scout and more teenage ass kicker with loner tendencies. Though we must
admit we can’t think of the Tim Drake version of Robin, the same one as in the
video, ever being this tough on
criminals in the comics. As the trailer shows, the Robin of Batman: Arkham City
is playing for keeps.
After seeing the more hardcore
looking Robin with his shaved head, we imagined he’d be a more visceral Robin
like in this trailer, more in the style of Damian Wayne, the current holder of
the title. Perhaps that’s why he borrowed Damian’s hood. By the way, the offer
for Robin in the US is only good with preorders from Best Buy, not GameStop
like in the country this video originates from. And that’s one to grow on.
