Heck, there used to be half a dozen Robins, when We Are Robin was being published.

But hey, if Tim needs to go by another name, what should it be? I know Chuck Dixon was trying to turn him into the next Blue Beetle back in the early 2000s. But we already have two Blue Beetles now anyway, so what other names are there?

He can go by Sparrow if that name isn't taken.

...That sentence didn't make a lick of sense.

Also, do you have any sort of source for that?

Has it been explained why Kon, Bart, and Tim are back to existing, existing, and being Robin yet?
Okay, if you really want to know without reading it, here goes:
  • During Detective Comics (Rebirth), Tim Drake was "killed," i.e. kidnapped by Mr. Oz. When he escaped, he met with a future version of himself, who told him to reconcile with Conner. Which was met with a "Conner? Who's Conner?" At the end of the storyline, Tim and Stephanie decide to run away together and investigate what, exactly, happened to them (and the world) to change their lives so much. (Stephanie had also been shown a different version of herself that had been Batgirl.)
  • This led to Young Justice (2019) #5, which shows a flashback where Tim and Steph contact Zatanna and Zatanna accidentally ends up unlocking Tim's pre-Flashpoint memories.
  • Meanwhile, at the end of Flash War, Bart Allen in his Impulse costume popped out of the Speed Force.
  • So Young Justice (2019) begins with the random meeting of Tim Drake, Cassie Sandsmark, Bart Allen, Ginny Hex (great-granddaughter of Jonah Hex), and someone named "Teen Lantern" in Metropolis before they are all sucked into Gemworld.
  • Where Bart meets Conner again — and we get his flashback in issue #3, showing him investigating a S.T.A.R. Labs facility that had been experimenting with gems from Gemworld and accidentally being teleported there.
  • So since Bart and Conner weren't technically in this reality when Flashpoint and the New 52 happened (having been in the Speed Force/Gemworld), they basically slipped through the cracks of reality, like Wally West, and are now back.
  • The end.

I don't think a title for a character that We are probably never gonna see again is what I'd count as Taken

Tim Drake should definitely go by the name Great Tit.

When I look at the Superman and Batman books that were published just before and after Crisis on Infinite Earths, the difference is night and day in terms of how the writing is structured and how characters talk. This really was a reboot not just in content but in format and presentation as well.

Post Crisis was DC looking at Moore's writing and saying 'We should make all of our books like that'. Even some continuing runs like Levitz's Legion had more natural dialogue and most of the textboxes removed.

Solicitions for September 2019 are out. The best one, I believe, is this one:

LOIS LANE #3
written by GREG RUCKA
art and cover by MIKE PERKINS
variant cover by NICOLA SCOTT
Jon Kent surprises his mother with a visit to her hideout in Chicago with big news that ties directly into the events of SUPERMAN #15, also on sale this month. While Lois must deal with her now-17-year-old son making life-changing decisions, the two Questions—Renee Montoya and Vic Sage—try to understand their own confusing continuity.
Rucka writing not just Lois Lane, but also Vic Sage and Renee Montoya? YES PLEASE. If this leads to a new Question series (or even mini-series), I will love it.

Also, I have feeling that Jon Kent is going to be joining the Legion of Super-Heroes.

Yeah, the solicits keep saying that Superman #15 is going to be important for Jon and it includes the Legion. Then the LOSH book is also being written by Bendis, too.

Rucka (or anyone, really) better not have broken Renee and Kate up. I'm so worried about that, especially if she's poised to be the Question again. Perfect time for a Batwoman/Question maxiseries or something.

[up] From what I remember, the last issue of Batwoman didn't actually have them back together officially yet...although they were on their way. I think they decided to go on a date.

Did Roy Harper ever kill anyone prior to Rise of Arsenal? I know the Arsenal codename predates that story and he was shown using lethal weapons before but I don't recall him killing until that story.

Depends on the Writer

I'm not joking that is the official stance if a writer wants to keep the old pre 52 stuff in they can if they want to work from the blank slate of new 52 they can do that too

Which kinda annoys me
