    This whole story sounds like a massive disappointment. None of the solicits talk about his character, it's all about the secret's of Oz's base or some mysterious threat chasing Tim or something. I was hoping for a semi-reboot of Tim's character with this story, but that's not what it looks like.

    Thanks, but I hope that wasn't meant to be sarcastic.

    Has anyone done an issue-by-issue comparison between the upcoming Lonely Place of Living covers and the original Lonely Place of Dying covers? I'm pretty sure all of the upcoming covers are homages to the covers of Tim's origin story.

    As for the upcoming story, I'm keeping an open mind. I'll admit to being a bit worried; but Tynion(sp?) has done a reasonable job with Tim thus far, and I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

    So this is just something that i wanted to say, i think that Tim's codename "Red Robin", works just fine, he doesn't needs to change it, nobody had a problem with it Pre-Flashpoint and nobody has a problem with it now, is silly and people make jokes about it, sure, but that happens to almost every supehero out there, how many times has people had called Superman's secret identity lame with the "Clark Ketting" jokes for example, hell i didn't found that Red Robin was a restaurant until a year ago i still don't seeing the big issue with it.

    Also, Tim and Dick are probably more alike than their fans would like to admit and both Tim and Dick are more similar to Bruce that some people realized, but they are enought differences beetween then to not make then redundant.

    Just something that i wanted to comment.

    Red Robin isn't that marketable of a name. The people working on superhero shows, games, merchandise etc aren't going to look at "Red Robin" and see any potential in that. It simultaneously separates him from the Robin identity, but also prevents him from ever truly moving on from it. The name has got to go.

    Isn't the person in front of the old cover Dick and Tim in the back? If Dick isn't in this issue then I'm already annoyed.

    It would be better to have big brother there when Tim comes back, but at least we're looking at 4 Batfamily members being there from TEC.

    And I still don't see any big problem with the Red Robin alias. Its hybrid nature cuts both ways in pros and cons; it may be a mere derivation of Robin, but Robin is already a major part of pop-culture.

    The bigger issue with the identity to me is how we're supposed to see it. Put him in a cowl and make it his graduation? Okay. That's worked. Making it just be a tiny nominal difference while still treating him as Robin? Doesn't work.
