Comic Books and Comic-Con : Robin is revealed to be bisexual in new Batman comic

Robin is revealed to be bisexual in new Batman comic

There's a new LGBTQ superhero on the block, but DC Comics readers already know him well.

The latest issue of Batman: Urban Legends, a monthly anthology series, revealed that the Caped Crusader's longtime sidekick Robin, specifically the Tim Drake version of him, is bisexual.

The moment came at the end of part 3 of the Sum of Our Parts story, from writer Meghan Fitzmartin, artist Belén Ortega, colorist Alejandro Sánchez, and letterer Pat Brosseau.

In part 1, which debuted in Batman: Urban Legends issue #4, Tim reunited with his old friend Bernard. Their dinner at Bincy's Bar and Grill was interrupted by Chaos Monster, who knocked out Tim and kidnapped Bernard to be sacrificed.

During the rescue mission of part 3, featured in this week's Urban Legends #6, Bernard mentions to Robin that he wishes he could've finished his date with Tim, unaware that he's actually speaking to his love interest. A few pages later, Tim goes to see Bernard and things are clarified.

"Tim Drake… do you want to go on a date with me?" Bernard asks.

"Yeah… Yeah, I think I want that," Tim replies.

Robin’s always been a massive bender tbf

Azn: “He (Orsen) now pretends to be in his 50s, but is in his 70s or close to 80 yo.”

Robin (this version of him, at least) had girlfriends:

During a point in which Tim and his then-girlfriend Ariana were unable to see each other, he and Stephanie grew even closer. He soon came to realize that his feelings for Stephanie had grown into something more, and after breaking up with Ariana, began dating Stephanie.

Dumb and weird to change the sexuality of a character that has been around for decades. This change to the character was not needed. More silly activism.

I'm the kind of human wreckage that you love.

Re: Robin is revealed to be bisexual in new Batman comic

I somewhat agree. The homoeroticism of the story has always been there. Silly they show Robin asking another boy out though. It misses the whole point. If Robin is gay he's in love with Batman.

Why bring in side characters to explain it when the issue has always been Batman's and Robin's sexuality?

Okay, so it's true that Robin's been letting Batman fuck him in the ass all this time.

Batman is on the downlow too. Just because he's the top and Robin is his buttboy, that doesn't mean Batman isn't queer.

Ya think they wear their superhero outfits when they roleplay?

Robin: Oh c'mon Bruce! We have the Riddlers outfit right here after catching him.
Can't I be the big, bad villain just this once?
Please?

Bats, man: You know how I feel about that Robin. I will not even be able to get a big, hard bat if you do that.
Now I have to admit that I sorta do feel something about Catwoman. So if we ever get her outfit you could put that one on.

Re: Robin is revealed to be bisexual in new Batman comic

Robin is truly gay, a Kinsey 6. They're only saying he's bisexual to play safe. Batman really wants Catwoman but he buttfucks Robin because he's always available. Batman is the bisexual.

Re: Robin is revealed to be bisexual in new Batman comic

Not only did they change his sexuality but his name to.
He used to be Dick.
Which would be more fitting since it can swing both ways!
