Where would Helena go as a Robin?
In the New 52? Before Dick Grayson.
- Earth-2’s timeline runs ahead of the mainstream DCU Earth.
- Helena served as Robin for a couple of years prior to landing on the main DCU Earth.
- Dick Grayson became Robin in roughly the same year Helena Wayne got stranded on the main DCU Earth.
Hi there, saw your nice graphic of the robins of the new 52, but technically Tim isn't a robin anymore.
That graphic isn’t mine since I snagged it right off of google. The graphic was actually made by a nickc0281 who posted it on Reddit.
The Huntress graphics, however, I did make those.
I cannot speak for the guy who made the Robins graphic, but I honestly doubt that name technicalities was what he was going for since Tim was—by all accounts—still a sidekick to Bruce, which is exactly what the role of Robin fulfils.
I will be honest and say it was an unnecessary change since it didn’t change the role that Tim played in Bruce’s life, but I do feel the essence of the pic is Batman’s sidekick.
The baby birds of the New 52.

Helena Wayne says ‘The Breasted Robins Club’ is feeling a little empty up in here.
Pete Tomasi and CBR confirm the guests for up coming issues of Batman and Robin, entitled:
- #19 — Batman and Red Robin
- #20 — Batman and Red Hood
- #21 — Batman and Batgirl
- #22 — Batman and Catwoman
- #23 — Batman and Nightwing
Will definitely be getting #22 for Batman and Catwoman alone. ♥
With regards to the guests, Pete Tomasi had this to say:
There are five stages of grief, and we intend to explore it in a very visceral way…Let’s just say there’s a big, epic picture in view over the horizon, but there’s plenty of lightning storms and hurricanes for myself, Pat Gleason and our partners in crime Mick Gray and John Kalisz to still fly through before it all becomes clear.
On Tim Drake appearing on issue #19, Pete confirms:
I wouldn’t jump to conclusions that Tim Drake is coming back in a big way. Red Robin is in issue #19, but not necessarily as a partner.
There’s still hope my Helena Wayne theory may still turn out to be true. ;)
Newsarama does a list of possible candidates that could take over the mantel of Robin, including:
- Cassandra Cain
- Stephanie Brown
- Carrie Kelley
- Beryl Hutchinson (Squire)
- Harper Rowe
- Tim Drake
- Damian Clone
- No one
(Yes that last one really is there).
I’m surprised Helena Wayne didn’t make this list as a possible candidate, but at the same time I’m very relieved. Robin is who she WAS on Earth-2, and more specifically, she was HER father’s Robin. It wouldn’t make sense for her to suddenly decide to take up on that vacancy given that (a) she mourned the loss of her “little brother,” and (b) she’s still not comfortable with the idea of being around a Bruce Wayne who isn’t her father.
Also, given that she’s already an adult woman (she’s established as 22-23 in the new continuity) and well established in her role as the Huntress (the costumed identity she’s always strongly identified with), a move like this would be a huge step backwards for her character.
Basically the new canon is that, because he was recruited like a month after Jason Todd's death, Tim decides that he couldn't be "another robin" so he named himself Red Robin from the start. Hope this helps.
I’m confused about the whole Tim Drake Robin/not a Robin ordeal, especially since he’s still wearing a Robin costume here. ._.
I haven’t been reading Teen Titans, so someone please enlighten me?
