So we already knew that continuity was going to be altered with the New 52, right? In turn, that means much of what we KNEW about the heroes of the DC Universe was going to change…possibly drastically. Just take a look at what they did with Alan Scott.
That being said, I’m not against the reboot. I was, in the beginning when the announcement was made, but the books DC is pushing out are quite good. Overall, I’ve been pleasantly surprised and impressed. However, my understanding of the reboot was to help bring back DC’s continuity to a more tangible level. This is always good if you want to bring in new readers.
Scott Lobdell was quoted saying this at Comic-Con just a few days ago…
“Tim goes straight from being Tim Drake to being Red Robin in that there was no official period of time where he was Robin. We keep most of the origin in tact in that he was one of the few people who could get very close to learning who Bruce is…but it will be a much updated version of his origin.”
So…if Tim was never Batman’s sidekick, then why does Batman #1 show Tim Drake as being apart of the Robin legacy?
I honestly don’t care that DC decided to erase Tim Drake from the line of Robins in the DC Continuity. However, I do ask that they stay consistent with what they have now established. This above image shows that DC is already in the process of screwing with their continuity and everything they hoped to achieve is already on a downward slope.
DC, please pay more attention to things in the future, ok?
