There are a lot of sidekicks in the universe and most of them are patterned in one way or another after Dick Grayson, the original Robin from 1940.  Depending on when you started reading comics, your first interactions with the Boys and/or Girls Wonder may have ranged anywhere from hyper-competent Stephanie to genius Tim to that little putz Jason Todd, but no matter which was your first, we all have our Fave-Rave Robin.  For me, it’s Dick Grayson, thanks to the origins of the New Teen Titans circa the early ’80s, but that’s also because I’m old, leading to today’s sensational character find query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) does appreciate Tim Drake adding pants to the ensemble, as well as his black cape, asking: Which of Batman’s red-vested sidekicks (from ANY continuity) is your Fave-Rave Robin?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
