    Well I think the public is correct in this matter.

    Tim Drake made Robin work for me because he had more in common with Spider-Man than Dick Grayson as Robin.

    Everyone knows the worst Robin is obviously Chris O' Donell! Just kidding, it's Joseph Gordon Levitt! Just kidding. To be honest, I never liked Tim Drake as Robin so....

    To be honest, I'm just impressed by how well they conform to the Breakfast Club archetypes. Steph is a bit of a reach as the basket case; but Dick is clearly the jock, Tim the brain, Damian is most definitely the princess, and Jason is obviously the criminal.

    ...man, now I really want to see that classic movie poster redone with the Robins.

    That sounds more like a modern writing issue versus golden aged writing issue rather than a character specific complaint to me Holmes.

    Have you read Chuck Dixon's take on Dick as Robin? It's modern story telling but it keeps the same devil may care attitude that makes Dick Grayson so great.

    Who or what the hell is Robin the Toy Wonder?

    Helena Wayne is just a waste in general.

    He has always reminded me of Burt Ward's take on Dick.

    Carrie Kelly is the Robin I like the least. Don't know whether she's the worst but one of the reasons I couldn't finish reading The Dark Knight Returns is her. Just can't stand her characterization.

    And IF DC's making Harper Row the next Robin, she may as well be my second least favourite. (I like her when she's not Robin, though)

    Pretty much. I'll always see Tim as the Peter Parker of the DC universe, despite DC's vain attempts to make him the dark and gritty Batman Jr.

    And I'm not voting for anyone, I love all the Robins equally.

    To be fair, he was also a big factor in keeping Batman relevant many, many decades ago. You're right that the public doesn't take Robin seriously though. Much of that is because once upon a time Batman wasn't meant to be taken as seriously as he has been post-Miller.

    Not that I'm complaining, as I much prefer Nolan's Batman to the Adam West version of the 60's; so if that mean no Robin, then I can deal with it. But it would be cool to see Robin in a decent Batman movie. Or at least Nightwing.

    My vote goes to Jason Todd, but I'm only factoring in his time as Robin, not as the Red Hood.

    This.

    Was she supposed to be a former Robin pre-crisis as well?
    I think on E2, Dick was still Robin and continued to be Robin into adulthood.
    ...Yeah.

    Really? I loved the flash back to her first night as Robin with her Mom in World's Finest. I'd gladly pay for a book set in that universe with her as Robin.

    Gotta agree there. Not the worst Robin by what she did and stuff but in terms of the adding something to the Robin mythos....she didn't do anything except having big hair.
