Oh great… now we have THREE Robins who kinda-don’t-count-in-main-canon. And they’re all girls, oddly enough. If we get another Robin in 10-20 years, it should be a girl, and it should actually last.
Like I said, my issue isn’t with them being girls, it’s just that one is in one alternate non-canon future story, one lasted 5 seconds in mainstream canon, and this new one is on Earth-2. I just get frustrated when people scream at me for not including them when I list off Robins and such, since they’re really not that monumental in the grand scheme of things and it just complicates it all. It’s easier to ignore it, it’s more like a fun-fact than an essential piece of knowledge. Kind of like that time when Batman punched Guy Gardner in JLI. It holds an important place in some people’s hearts, but it’s not an earth-shattering event that must be acknowledged at all times for anything to make sense to newbies. So when I tell people “there were 4 Robins” I really mean “there’s only 4 worth mentioning”.
Look at me, beating a dead horse. Oh well. Rant over, I guess. I hope Helena-Robin turns out cool. I like her outfit. Yeah.
