I keep seeing the "Who is the best Robin" question. Not "who is your favorite" but "who is the best," a question that should be answered with facts, so please read through all the ones I have provided before responding. Here's my answer... Tim. Easily. Jason was literally voted to death because nobody liked him, and Dick was kind of just a "damsel in distress" until he joined the Titans. They were mediocre Robins but they do well as Nightwing and Red Hood. Damian on the other hand is one of DC's most hated characters ever. Tim was the only one to make the mantle of Robin mean something without needing to rely to heavily on Batman, to where he even had a long ongoing solo title and helped found the Young Justice team, without relying on Bruce's help to lead them. A natural born leader, a genius, and by Bruce's own admission, the world's greatest detective, Tim Drake was the ultimate Robin, and the only one to truly earn the mantle instead of have it handed to them. Not only did he go through Bruce's standard training, he went above and beyond by going to train with all of Bruce's masters (the ones that were still alive) from when Bruce was training to become Batman and then some. He put in the dedication and effort to be the best and it truly paid off. I've also enjoyed his time as Red Robin. I preferred his New Earth/Pre-Flashpoint version but one thing I like about his Prime Earth/New 52 portrayal is that they show just how self reliant he was always capable of being. Ya boi Tim Drake takes home the title of Best Robin every time.
