Robin Batman

Robin (also referred to as The Boy Wonder) is the name of several fictional characters appearing in comic books published by DC Comics, originally created by Bob Kane, Bill Finger and Jerry Robinson, as a junior counterpart to DC Comics superhero Batman. The team of Batman and Robin is sometimes referred to as the Dynamic Duo or the Caped Crusaders. The first incarnation of the character—Dick Grayson—debuted in Detective Comics #38 (April 1940). Conceived as a vehicle to attract young readership, Robin garnered overwhelmingly positive critical reception, doubling the sales of the Batman related comic books.[1] The early adventures of Robin included Star Spangled Comics #65-130 (1947-1952), which was the character's first solo feature. As Robin, Dick Grayson made regular appearances in Batman related comic books and other DC Comics publications from 1940 through the early 1980s until the character was reinvented as the independent superhero Nightwing.

Following the retirement of Dick Grayson as Robin, a new version of the character—Jason Todd—debuted in Batman #357 (1983). The new character made regular appearances in Batman related comic books until 1988, when the character is murdered by the Joker in A Death in the Family (1989). The premiere Robin limited series was published in 1991, featuring the third incarnation of the character—Tim Drake—training to earn the role of Batman's junior partner. Following two successful sequels, the monthly Robin ongoing series began in 1993 and is still published to this day. After the retirement of Tim Drake as Robin, an established DC Comics character named Stephanie Brown—alternatively known as the Spoiler—became the fourth incarnation of Robin and the first in-continuity female version of the character. However, shortly after her acquisition of the mantle of Robin, Stephanie Brown was stripped of the identity by Batman and was apparently killed by the supervillain Black Mask in the maxiseries Batman: War Games (2004). It has since been revealed her death was a ruse. Following the "death" of Stephanie Brown, the Tim Drake character reclaimed his former role as Robin the Boy Wonder.
