Tim Drake!! Easily my favorite Robin, yet he’s had very little attention these days.
These aren’t supposed to be a progression of his costume changes, although I made sure to reference his OYL and New 52 designs. I wanted to find a way to mesh classic and new design elements with practicality in mind. I thought it would be cool for Tim to wear additional armor for more dangerous cases. I imagine in Gotham, he’d wear a standard suit (first image), and whenever he has to work a case alone without Batman, he’d wear a more protective suit (second image). The last image is what he would wear in an epic Teen Titans mission!
Since this is superheroes we’re talking about, we need to instill some sort of moral lesson or message! In this case, it would be Tim finding out that he performs best when he doesn’t have all that armor on, and that depending on the protection makes him a little more careless and slow. Robin is best when he can run and flip all around the place, not brawling head on - it would be a story about how Tim finds a way to be Robin without trying to be Batman. AGHH, did I just pitch the perfect Tim Drake animated series??
Robin: the Animated Series anyone??
