I Hate This Double-R Thing So Much!
Red Robin is due to get a costume change in DC Rebirth. I’m cool with that. His New 52 costume is fine, I suppose. It’s neat, though it’s overly complicated. Well now it looks like they’re going to give him a more classic, Robin-esque costume.
But he’s going to insist on having a Double-R on the chest! Here’s an up close look, courtesy of Comic Book Resources.
Ugh. Robin is one of my favorite comic book characters of all time, and Tim Drake is my favorite Robin. It grinds my gears that DC insists he’s only ever been ‘Red Robin’ in the DC Universe now. That’s such a ridiculous idea. Everybody just calls him ‘Robin’. And the Double-R looks so dumb!
Plus, he’s not even wearing predominantly red this time. Argh, whatever. I love this costume design for Tim and I’m still totally gonna read Detective Comics.
