Injustice 2 Bat-Family Poll Ranks Preferred Robins

Way back in 1940, Dick Grayson was the comic book find of the year -- bursting onto the scene as Batman's crime fighting "Boy Wonder" - Robin! In the decades since, there have been several young heroes to adopt the sidekick mantle. In his latest poll, Injustice 2 Creative Director Ed Boon asked Twitter followers which of three Robins fans would like to see!

Second Robin Jason Todd (aka; Red Hood) scooped the poll with a dominant 57%. Dick Grayson in his matured persona of Nightwing claimed a quarter (25%) of the 19,591 votes. Son of the Bat and contemporary Robin - Damian Wayne rounded out voting with a respectable 18%.

Nightwing made a strong showing as one of the acrobatic playable heroes in Injustice: Gods Among Us. Dick Grayson first adopted the Nightwing persona in 1984. An alternate red version was used to represent Damian Wayne in maturity, in Injustice.

Damian Wayne is a concept extrapolated from 1987 graphic novel Son of the Demon. Resulting from a love tryst between Batman and Talia al Ghul; he became a part of the modern mythos in 2006 under writer Grant Morrison. Though raised to be a perfect assassin, Damian adopts the mantle of Robin some time later, even serving Dick Grayson's Batman during a period when Bruce Wayne was believed dead!

Few characters were "believed" dead as long as Jason Todd...

The Flock: Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, Tim Drake & Damian Wayne have all been Robin.

While Dick Grayson was breaking out as leader of the Teen Titans, Jason Todd was introduced in 1983 to become the first replacement for the original Robin. He was tweaked with the line-wide reboot of 1985, becoming increasingly unpopular as the street rat turned sidekick with a snotty attitude.

In 1988, fans were given the opportunity to rid The Dark Knight of his bratty Robin in an interactive phone voting stunt. A slim 50.3% of fan votes condemned Todd to die in A Death in the Family -- enthusiastically killed by a crowbar wielding Joker.

In 2003; Jason Todd's return to life was teased in the twelve-issue epic Hush. This later inspired a confirmed return to life in 2005, placing a resurrected Todd under the identity obscuring helmet of a new Red Hood. As noted in another poll spotlight, Red Hood was itself a reference to a past Joker identity.

The return of Jason Todd may have been facilitated by some downright goofy shenanigans -- Superboy-Prime throwing a tantrum against the walls of reality -- but the gun-toting base elements of a violent bat-frenemy vigilante found a soft mark in young modern fans. The visceral angst of the character has been taken to non-readers through works like the animated version of Under the Hood, and the recent Batman: Arkham Knight video game.

My preferred Robin is Tim Drake and Dick'll do in a pinch.
