Fictional character history

Origin

Tim Drake, who is to become the new Robin, first appears in a flashback in Batman #436 (August 1989). Drake first appears as a 13-year-old boy who has followed the adventures of Batman and Robin ever since witnessing the murder of the Flying Graysons when he was a child. This connects Drake to Dick Grayson, the first Robin, establishing a link that DC hoped would help readers accept this new Robin[citation needed]. At the age of nine, Drake surmises their secret identities with his instinctive detective skills, after watching Batman and Robin battle against the Penguin on a security tape shown on TV. While the Penguin was attempting to catch Batman unaware, Robin pounced on the Penguin after executing a quadruple somersault, which Tim had witnessed Dick execute during the final performance of the Flying Graysons. Knowing that only Dick Grayson could execute such a feat, Tim makes the connection and follows Batman and Robin's careers closely.[3] This article does not cite any references or sources. ...

Years later, after Batman grows progressively more violent and reckless following Jason's death, Tim seeks out Dick Grayson to try to convince him to reprise his role as Robin. Reluctant to take a step back, Dick agrees to assist Batman again, but only as Nightwing. Tim, who is unsatisfied with Dick's decision, continues to argue that Batman needs a Robin. Finally, he coaxes Alfred Pennyworth to help him, and taking the Robin costume from the Batcave pursues the original Dynamic Duo where he proves to be an invaluable asset in the capture of Two-Face.

Both Dick and Alfred can see that Tim is well suited not only as Robin but also as a force to keep Batman grounded emotionally. Although Batman is very reluctant to have another partner, he grudgingly agrees that the boy has potential and then begins an extended training period in which Tim endures months of physical, mental and psychological tests.


Before Tim can take on the role of Robin, a villain calling himself the Obeah Man captures his parents, Jack and Janet Drake. While waiting for news of their rescue, he takes his mind off his worries by focusing on tracking down the hacker/thief Moneyspider, who he reveals to be Anarky, thus solving his first solo case. Meanwhile, Batman rushes to rescue Tim's parents, but fails to save them before the Obeah Man poisons both Jack and Janet. Janet dies, and Jack is left in a coma for several months. Batman becomes even more reluctant to entrust Tim with the Robin mantle following this loss because afraid that the boy is too blinded by rage and a desire for vengeance. Tim proves himself however, when the Scarecrow kidnaps Batman and Vicki Vale. Yet, rather than save them dressed as Robin, Tim instead goes forth wearing normal street gear and a ski mask, stating that he did not want to damage the Robin legacy should he have failed. After that, Batman finally allows Tim Drake to become the newest Boy Wonder, wearing a revised uniform.[4] Jack Drake is a fictional character from DC Comics books, specifically the Batman titles. ...

Training abroad

In addition to being a primary character in the main Batman comic books, Tim is also the first Robin to star in his own series (both mini and later monthly).


The Robin mini-series (five issues published from January 1991 through May 1991, written by Chuck Dixon with Tom Lyle as penciller), takes place immediately after Batman gives Tim the mantle. Wishing to make certain that his newest Robin does not repeat the mistakes of the previous Boy Wonder, Batman sends Tim to Paris to learn fighting skills from a master martial artist: Rahul Lama. There, he learns the healing arts from the aging master, while learning combat from the Lama's other student. While there, Tim is drawn into a battle against King Snake's criminal organization, the Ghost Dragons. Tim joins forces with a former DEA agent, Clyde Rawlins, and the world-class assassin, Lady Shiva. Shiva sees potential in Drake, and takes him under her wing, training him in martial arts and a weapon of his choice. Tim chooses the non-lethal bo staff, to Shiva's disappointment. He concludes his training when he defeats Shiva in a sparring match with the bo, and as a gift she presents him with a collapsible bo staff which fits under his cape.

Meanwhile, King Snake acquires a virulent plague. The three attempt to stop them from releasing it, but the Ghost Dragons escapes with a few of the canisters. After tracking them to Hong Kong, they eventually defeat King Snake, though Rawlins dies in the attempt as Shiva watches. Shiva orders Robin to kill King Snake while he hangs from a building, to signify his 'graduation' and thus become her 'weapon'. Robin refuses to kill, and leaves. Shiva throws King Snake off the ledge of the building, seemingly to his death. Look up plague in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...

DC gave Drake yet another mini-series, entitled Robin II: Joker's Wild (published from October 1991 through December 1991), in which Tim is forced to face Jason Todd's murderer, the Joker, without Batman's help. A third mini-series entitled Robin III: Cry of Huntress (published from December 1992 through March 1993) pitted Tim and the Huntress against Robin's old nemesis, the King Snake. This story delves deeper into the difficulties that Robin suffers as both a normal teenager and as a vigilante; particularly in the relationship with his father, who had come out of his coma only months prior.

The popularity of the Robin mini-series led to the launch of a monthly series in November 1993, which has created a mythos independent of that of the main Batman story. The writers have given Robin an assortment of archenemies, such as the bumbling but cruel Cluemaster and the psychotic child criminal, the General.

Meanwhile, Tim's father, Jack, emerges from his coma paralyzed from the waist down. This new handicap and the loss of his wife leaves Jack with the desire to reconnect with his son. Tim's duties as the Boy Wonder and his close relationship with Bruce Wayne cause a greater rift between Jack and Tim, though they attempt to reconcile.

In time, Jack regains the use of his legs with the aid of physical therapist Dana Winters. Although Dana is considerably younger than Jack, the two immediately feel a mutual attraction and begin dating. Dana curbs Jack's anger at his son for being so distant, and helps Tim to feel more connected with his father. As time passes, Jack proposes to Dana, and they get married. They wed following an incident in which Dana is possessed by a powerful witch and fights Robin, Spoiler, Wildcat, and Black Canary.

Tim is also given a romantic interest, a Russian girl named Ariana Dzerchenko, who is introduced in the third Robin limited series. Their relationship is often rocky, as Ariana is very insecure about Tim's feelings towards her, and often feels the need to make overly grand gestures to get Tim to prove his feelings for her. One such gesture being when Ariana propositioned Tim for sex, wearing nothing more than a skimpy teddy. Tim, ever the gentleman, rebuffs the offer, feeling that the neither are ready for such a big step. Unfortunately, Ariana's uncle catches the teens in the compromising position and demands that they no longer date. They eventually get back together, but almost immediately break up again. Tim then falls in love with Stephanie Brown, the Cluemaster's daughter, who rejected her father's lifestyle and adopted the superhero identity of Spoiler. Stephanie initially does not know Robin's true identity, as Batman forbids Tim to reveal it to her. Their romance is tested early on, when Stephanie confesses to being pregnant from a previous relationship. Tim helps deliver the baby girl, after which Stephanie gives her up for adoption.

Young Justice and the Teen Titans

Much like Dick Grayson, Tim Drake has allied himself with the other superheroes in his age demographic. He mostly works with only the Gotham City heroes, but on occasion joins forces with heroes such as Superman, the Flash, Superboy (who became Tim's best friend) and Impulse. During one adventure where a pre-teen boy was given god-like powers, Robin, Superboy and Impulse joined forces to defeat him. The boys work so well together that they create their own team of heroes called Young Justice. Robin acts as the leader of the team until he temporarily quits following the Imperiex War. During that mission, the group is tortured on Apokolips. Afterward, Robin discovers that over half the team, including Superboy, Wonder Girl, Impulse and Cissie King-Jones (formerly Arrowette), no longer trust him. The Justice League had discovered that Batman kept contingency plans on them, and the younger heroes begin to wonder if Robin might also have plans to defeat or even kill them. Secret, who has deep feelings for Robin, along with new members Empress and Lil' Lobo however remained trusting of Robin and side with him.

In the "Titans Tomorrow" storyline, Tim encounters his future self in the identity of Batman after his mentor dies in a crisis. This future happens despite his repeated statement that he did not want to be the next Batman, and is rather content being Robin. In this timeline, Tim is now the leader of the future Titans with himself as Batman. After Bruce Wayne's death, Tim has the Titans take control of the entire West Coast. He orders any rebellions to be put down by Dark Raven absorbing the people's free will and hope. He even hunts down most of Batman's Rogue's gallery and kills them with the handgun that was used to kill Thomas and Martha Wayne. As he explains to his younger self, 'It took me years to do it'. He even begins a relationship with Bettie Kane, who becomes his partner, Batwoman. He later kills her during an argument; wracked with guilt, he makes a deal with Ra's al Ghul to restore her using the Lazarus Pit. Once revived, however, she joins the Titans East (led by an older version of Cyborg) and opposes him and his team.

After this, Stephanie Brown takes over the role of Robin for a short period, until Batman fires her for disobeying orders. Soon afterward, a massive gang war (which Stephanie Brown starts unintentionally) consumes Gotham City, and finds its way into Tim's school. After assisting the Bat-Team to the best of his abilities, with no equipment or costume, Tim protects his classmates, but not without casualties. Tim then realizes that he cannot disregard his responsibilities and takes up the Robin mantle again, against his father's wishes.

Quickly immobilizing the other Titans, Jason confronts Tim to see if the new Boy Wonder is really as good as everyone claims. The two Robins fight, until at last Jason strikes Tim down in the Hall of Fallen Titans.

Robin eludes the Gotham City Police Department when they arrive on the scene. He infiltrates the police station to look for evidence and steals the mask of the fake Batgirl costume. Lady Shiva arrives at Wayne Manor while Tim is running tests on the mask. She informs Tim of the death of Nyssa al Ghul, daughter of Ra's al Ghul and head of the League of Assassins, and her suspicions that someone outside the League was trying to usurp it. Robin returns to his investigation before finding a note in Batgirl's cowl, written in Navajo code, informing him that, to save Cassandra, he had to give them her father, David Cain. Robin breaks into Blackgate Prison and captures Cain, only to learn that Cassandra herself has taken over the League.

Cassandra asks Robin to kill David and join her. She claims she has accepted her fate as a killer and has killed David's other daughter. Robin refuses, and Cassandra shoots her father. Believing David to be dead, Robin tries to bring Cassandra in. While he holds his own against her and her League, an explosion forces them all to flee. When Tim returns to David's body, he finds Cassandra's league of assassins all dead with broken necks and Cain's body missing. Look up fate, Fates in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...


After returning to Gotham City, Tim finds that his mini-cam survived the explosion and that it captured the entire battle, giving Tim a way to clear his name. As he laments the fact that the footage will brand Cassandra a murderer, Killa 'Nilla approaches Robin with a boomerang given to him by Owen Mercer and explains that the new Captain Boomerang is looking for him. While Robin assumes that Boomerang is out to finish what his father began, Owen reveals that he wishes to make amends and even helps Tim locate a bomb set by the Joker. Although they are far from friends, they have developed a sort of respect and civility. Owen Mercer is a fictional character existing in the DC Comics Universe. ...


During a recent case, Bruce begins thinking about Tim's place in the world following the deaths of both his parents and the events of the Crisis. Finally, Bruce approaches Tim again with the idea of adoption. This time, Tim readily accepts, even going so far as to hug Bruce with tears in his eyes. Along with the adoption, plans are made to move Tim into the Manor using the room once owned by Dick and Jason.


In Detective Comics #826 Tim is captured and tied up by the Joker. Tim escapes on his own, which Batman acknowledges and commends. In #829, Wayne Tower is attacked by a mysterious terrorist named "Vox". Bruce is trapped in the building with other people, unable to reach his Bat-gear, and thus Tim must face Vox alone. Vox sprays Tim with a liquid explosive, but before Vox can detonate it, Tim uses a blow torch to get the explosives off his body. Vox is later confronted by Batman, but when Batman can not convince him of his wrongdoings, Vox commits suicide.


The "new" Teen Titans

Meanwhile in 52 #51, following the one year anniversary of Superboy's death, Robin joined the rest of the Superhero community for a memorial service in which to honor Conner Kent as well as all those who died during World War III, where Black Adam murdered millions of men, women and children in the Country of Bialya Strands, along which he murdered several Teen Titans including Terra and Young Frankenstien, before at last being defeated. There Tim has apparently started rebuilding the Titans, though only he and Ravager, the daughter of Deathstroke are on the roster. He attempts to convince Wonder Girl to return but she refuses, feeling abandoned by Robin following Superboy's death. At the memorial service, he also reveals to Jimmy Olsen that he changed his uniform to red and black, in order to honor Superboy's colors. Deathstroke the Terminator (Slade Wilson), also called simply Deathstroke (and originally simply the Terminator) is a fictional character, a supervillain in the DC Comics Universe. ...


Unable to let his best friend go[6] Tim sets up a secret facility beneath Titans Tower for the express purpose of recreating Superboy via replicating his DNA, although all his attempts have so far failed. He also keeps Conner's costume similar to how Batman grieved the death of Jason Todd. Wonder Girl returns to the team full time, and goes in search of Robin to inform him of her decision. During the search, she discovers his secret lab. Tim confesses how much he misses Conner, and the two share a passionate, unexpected kiss. Wonder Girl has attempted to speak to Tim about the incident several times, but Robin continues to avoid her. The structure of part of a DNA double helix Deoxyribonucleic acid, or DNA, is a nucleic acid molecule that contains the genetic instructions used in the development and functioning of all known living organisms. ...


Later, Deathstroke's Titans East makes a full out assault on the Teen Titans, picking off each member except for Rose and Jericho. Tim has been personally targeted by Deathstroke, who with Batgirl is holding him captive in an unknown underground location. In a mocking sort of gesture, Slade has surrounded Tim with trophy cases containing Superboy's costume, along with that of Stephanie Brown and clothing from his parents, Jack and Janet Drake, and his stepmother, Dana Drake. Slade Wilson, also known as Deathstroke the Terminator, is a fictional character appearing in the DC Comics universe. ... Titans East is the name of several DC Comics teams. ...


Deathstroke ordered Cassandra Cain to inject Tim with the same formula that once granted him control over Rose and current control over Cassandra. Tim managed to escape and inject Cassandra with an antidote he developed in case Slade ever managed to re-inject Rose. With Batgirl now free of Slade's influence, she has joined Robin and the Titans against Slade's Titans East. Along with Duela Dent and past Titans, Nightwing, Donna Troy, Beast Boy and Flash (Bart Allen), the Titans defeat the Titans East, although Slade and Inertia manage to escape. Batgirl, who attempted to murder Slade in revenge, is stopped by Nightwing, and disappears soon after as well.


Tim recently received news of Bart Allen's death (having been killed by the Flash Rogues) while at the tower and later attends his funeral where he delivers a eulogy for Bart. Tim also shows a video that Bart made in the case of his death, in which he tells his friends that no matter what, he is proud of his time as a part of the Flash Legacy and as a member of the Teen Titans.


As of lately, in Robin Tim Drake has been having an ongoing battle against his new archrival Dodge and romantic feelings for a girl name Zoanne. However in Teen Titans Tim and Cassie Sandsmark (Wonder Girl) recently confessed their feelings for each other after the Amazons Attack series came to a close. Cassandra Sandsmark is the current Wonder Girl, a superheroine from DC Comics. ...


Skills and abilities

Tim Drake possesses the normal human strength of a teenager who regularly engages in intensive physical exercise. The Batman has trained him in many disciplines, such as martial arts, forensic, criminology, acrobatics, stealth, disguise, and escapology.

His naturally high intellect allows him to excel in computer science and more importantly as a skilled detective. His ability to deduce the secret identities of superheroes on his own has been used to underscore his skill. Among the identities used in this way are the Batman, both of his predecessors as Robin, the Huntress, and Captain Marvel. Further more, Tim apparently has a firm grasp of assorted scientific techniques including biology, engineering and genetics, which he has been shown to use in his attempts at re-cloning Superboy. Tim, much like Dick Grayson is also a brilliant and experienced strategist with impressive leadership skills, having served as leader to the Teen Titans, Young Justice, and even being placed in charge of the rescue efforts of Blüdhaven by Superman, following the attack made by Deathstroke and his fellow villains. Furthermore, in Robin #136 (May 2005), Batman stated that Tim is smarter than himself or possibly even Alfred. This article does not cite any references or sources. ...

Costume and equipment

Drake's original costume was slightly different from that of his predecessors as supplied by Batman to give him a measure of increased protection. It includes an armored tunic, a cape that is black on the outside though still yellow on the inside, and green leggings. Other details include an armored gorget, jika-tabi style boots, an emergency "R" shuriken on his chest in addition to the traditional batarangs, and a collapsible bo staff as primary weapon. There is also a general change of the theme of the equipment from "Bat" to "Robin"[citation needed]. Tupa Inca tunic The tunic was the common masculine garment of Roman civilization. ...

Following the Infinite Crisis' aftermath, Tim updated his costume to match the Superboy's black and red color scheme as homage to his late friend. These updates include long sleeves, the elimination of the green from the suit, the addition of scallops to his gloves and cape, and inclusion of a utility belt with pockets. The scallops on the cape give an illusion of feathers rather than bat-wings, as seen on the cape of the Batman. The stylized "R" on Robin's chest has been replaced with a more traditional one, though its appearance varies from artist to artist. Robin retains his "R" shurikens, but he now carries them in his belt as opposed to his tunic. This new costume closely resembles the Robin suit worn by the Robin character in The New Batman Adventures (see below). Genera See text. ... Batmans current costume, as shown in the Hush story arc. ... The New Batman Adventures was the successor to the highly acclaimed American animated television series Batman: The Animated Series. ...


Personal life

During his early career, Drake is different from the previous Robins in that his father, Jack Drake, is alive and does not know of Tim's life as Robin. His mother, Janet Drake, however, is murdered before he officially becomes Robin, and his father is put into a coma. Tim appears to not have any other family, although there was briefly an Eddie Drake introduced into the series. However, Uncle Eddie is in truth revealed to be an actor, who Tim hires so as to maintain his independance following the murder of his father. Tim also has a stepmother, in Dana Winters, who is first introduced as Jack's physical therapist, and later falls in love and marries him. Dana's involvement in Tim's life proves to be a blessing as she often maintains the peace when Jack and Tim fought.


Initially, Tim's closest friend at Gotham Heights is a young man named Ives. They remain friends until Tim's father sends him to the Brentwood Academy for Boys. They renew the friendship after Tim's father can no longer afford to send him to Brentwood, but they lose contact when Tim begins to attend a high school in Gotham. At Tim's new school, he becomes friends with Bernard, a hyperactive metrosexual. One Year Later, at another new school, Tim becomes friends with a boy named Jared, who has a habit of trying to one-up Tim financially. It has been suggested that Ãœbersexual be merged into this article or section. ... One Year Later event logo. ...


Tim's closest friend was Conner Kent, prior to Conner's death in Infinite Crisis, followed closely by Bart Allen, prior to his death at the hands of the Rouges, and Cassandra Sandsmark, Robin's Young Justice and Teen Titans teammates Superboy, Kid Flash, and Wonder Girl. Tim is also particularly close with Dick Grayson, with whom he shares a brotherly relationship, sharing the same adoptive father technically makes them so. Tim's favorite superhero is the Blue Beetle with whom he becomes friends through Barbara Gordon.[7] Blue Beetle is Edward (or Theodore) Ted Kord, a fictional superhero in the DC Universe. ...


Tim's love interests tend toward the dangerous. They include Ariana Dzerchenko, daughter of a deli owner targeted and murdered by the Russian mob; gang leader Lynx; Darla Aquista, daughter of a mafia boss; fellow vigilante Spoiler, daughter of the Cluemaster, with whom he has his longest relationship; and even Marvel Universe's Jubilee. Other characters are attracted to Tim, including Young Justice teammates Secret and Arrowette, who steals a kiss from Robin before quitting the team. In an issue of Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E., Tim expresses an interest in Courtney Whitmore, although this has not been picked up on recently.

Courtney Whitmore is a fictional character, the superheroine Stargirl in the DC Comics Universe. ...


Comic book stories published between 2004 and 2005 establish that over a period of several months Tim’s personal life is sent into turmoil. One of his love interests, Darla Aquista, is killed in a gang war and later resurrected by the demonic Johnny Warlock, as an evil witch. His girlfriend, Stephanie Brown, is tortured and murdered. His father dies in a fight with the first Captain Boomerang.[8] His step-mother has a nervous breakdown and needs to be placed in a psychiatric ward and later disappears following the attack on Blüdhaven (she has not been shown or mentioned following the OYL jump), [citation needed] his favorite superhero and friend Ted Kord is murdered and his best friend, Superboy, dies saving the world.


In the "One Year Later" stories, Tim's former love interest Lynx is found dead again (Lynx was previously killed during War Games while fighting Batgirl, but this was apparently retconned following OYL), and he is suspected in her murder, and he later learns that former Batgirl, Cassandra Cain is responsible. Not wanting to lose another person in his life, Tim offers Cassandra help and is distraught when he realizes that clearing his name will brand Cassandra as a murderer. Recently however, Tim has discovered that Cassandra was under the control of Slade's mind-altering serum, and Tim has since then cured her, supposedly. While under the influence of Slade's drug, Cassandra behaved more fixated on Robin, wanting him to be with her and even attempting to use the same serum on him in order to sway him.


In Teen Titans, Tim has had assorted romantic issues amongst his female teamates. During the early run of the OYL jump, was propositioned by fellow Titan Rose Wilson for sex late one night in his room. Tim not only rejects her, but handcuffs her. Meanwhile, Tim and Wonder Girl, while mourning Superboy share an unexpected yet passionate kiss. Tim later says that it was a mistake, and Wonder Girl agrees though it is clear that both are still shaken by it and Wonder Girl has attempted to discuss it with Tim on several occasions. Then following, the 'Amazon Attacks' series, Tim and Cassandra finally confess their growing romantic feelings for one another and share another kiss. Rose Wilson is a fictional comic book character in the DC Comics universe. ...


In Robin, Tim finds another new potential love interest in fellow classmate Zoanne. After agreeing to tutor Tim, Zoanne realizes that he is not an aloof snob and becomes attracted to Tim. She later kisses Tim after he is kidnapped and later 'rescued' by Robin. Afterwards, Tim asks her out, making Zoanne his first 'normal' date in a very long time. Although their date is interrupted by Batman, they have found a deep kinship with one another and are now planning a second date. Unfortunately, Tim's life as Robin has already started to cause trouble, and Zoanne is growing concerned that his brooding and at times distant behavior means that he might not be as interested as previously thought. These concerns lead her to break off their romantic relationship, believing that after everything that Tim has gone through, he is not ready for a relationship right now. Unfortunately, since their break-up, there has been severe awkwardness between the two of them.


Tim has recently suffered another major loss, in the form of ex-Young Justice and Teen Titans teammate Bart Allen, who was recently murdered by the Flash Rogues.

Tim continued serving as Robin until an incident depicted in the Batman Beyond spinoff movie Return of the Joker. Tim was kidnapped and brainwashed by the Joker and Harley Quinn, an incident that ended in the Clown Prince of Crime's apparent death. After Tim recovered under the care of Dr. Leslie Thompkins, Bruce forbade him from being Robin. Tim set out on his own, but eventually retired from superheroics. He went on to live somewhat normal life, getting married and fathering two children. Forty years later, Terry McGinnis (Batman's successor) discovered that the Joker had implanted a chip into Tim's brain containing his genetic code. The chip created a genetically-engineered imitation of the phenotypic changes Joker endured by falling into acid, and a simulation of his personality. Tim's body and mind transformed temporarily into a replica of the Joker. This new Joker returned to torment an aged Bruce Wayne and the new Batman. Batman freed Drake from the Joker after he defeated the Clown Prince of Crime and his gang of Jokerz. Afterward, Bruce and Tim reconciled. The genetic technology that the Joker had stolen was later revealed to be from Project Cadmus on Justice League Unlimited episode "Epilogue."

When the Joker ransomed Gotham City with his radar jamming device, Tim deduced that the Clown Prince of Crime would need to be on top of a tall structure for his device to work.
