I thought it might be fun to find out who was the greatest DC sidekick ever and why.
Can't do a pole because there are to darn many. But I'll add them all up once the threads run dry and we'lkl see who the winner is. it probably isn't conclusive but it's there to jog your memory and help people mak their decisions, which won't be easy for everyone. Don't just say who, you have to say why.
Mine's a bit controversial.
I'm plumming for Jason Todd. I'm going with the Batmobile wheel steeling version, street kid.
I liked this Robin a lot. He was rough and ready and flawed to the hilt but he was brave. My favourite story with him in Was The Cult. In that story Todd rescued Batman from the sewers, where Batman was a broken gibbering mess. Rescued him from a chamber filled with the rotting dead. He then helped motivate Batman back to "normal2 and then retook Gotham with him and was even left behind with a broken leg by batman in the middle of the sewer system whilst mad mongrel nutcase followers of Blackfire poored down on him.
