What was that we were just saying about can-do attitudes? Tim Drake was a pretty great Robin, maybe a little too
great, when you think about it.
While there's no denying the appeal of a Robin that is more than a little nerdy and socially inept, preferring to play Boy Detective instead of be a regular teenager not to mention the fact that his Batman fanboyishness was the thing that led him to assume the role in the first place – later evolution of the character into being almost as good a detective, athlete and superhero as Batman himself seemed just a little too much, somehow.
In the "New 52," Tim's natural detective abilities were seemingly transferred onto Dick Grayson's revised origin, and despite some conflicting mentions in early issues, Tim is now officially said to have always called himself Red Robin, with the modifier, out of respect for his direct predecessor's (albeit temporary) death.
Now, he's become Batman -- albeit Batman Beyond.
