Now that we know Harper Row is moving into the new sidekick/partner/bat-associate role of Bluebird, pulling her off our “possible Robin” list. Luckily, this week’s Detective Comics #30 by new creative team Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato has provided us with a suitable replacement.
In fact, DC Comics is pointing it out on their own blog with their “This just happened” feature.
The feature points out the new character Anna Aguila, a risk-taking high-flying motorbike rider, who is described by DC Comics as doing trick “like she has wings to help her fly.”
Now, doesn’t that sound like a future Robin?
Maybe it’s all a misdirection, but the way she moved, and the first issue by this creative team’s focus on the previous Robin, the dearly deceased Damian Wayne, sure seems to imply a costumed future for Aguila. If nothing else, it certainly adds her to the list of candidates.
