After more than 50 years, fans are learning more about one of their heroes.
The devoted sidekick of Batman has suddenly discovered his sexual orientation. This breaking news comes from DC Comics.
The company explains that, although Robin never went public about it before, he now describes himself as LGBTQ. The duo has been popular in the world of comic strips for generations. The most recent issue of DC Comics has cleared everything up in case you were wondering.
The Batman and Robin comic strip of the day is called Batman: Urban Legends. The storyline is that Robin will be going on a date with a guy. So now, there is a new man in the lives of the famed Dynamic Duo. His name is Bernard.
The attraction began when the two were working side by side on a mission. Bernard asked Robin aka Tim to go on a date with him, and the rest is history. Curious followers of the comic strip can find out how it went in the next episode of Batman and Robin.
“Tim Drake is the DC character who fights crime as Robin, and when the sixth installment of the comic book dropped Tuesday the story ended with Tim saying yes to going on a date with a guy named Bernard Dowd,” reported TMZ. “The story goes … Robin had a ‘lightbulb moment’ while fighting side-by-side with Bernard. After coming to his rescue as Robin, Tim later hits up Bernard’s pad, and you can see the anticipation’s building ’cause he hypes himself up, saying … ‘It’s OK, Tim. You got this.'”
Just as Bernard opens the door to ask Tim on a date, Tim abruptly says, “I’m really glad you got home okay. I was relieved. And I’ve been doing a lot of thinking, about that night. And I — I don’t know what it meant to me. Not yet. But I’d like to figure it out.”
“I was hoping you would. Tim Drake … do you want to go on a date with me?” Bernard asks.
Tim Drake finally coming out is so inspiring, DC never wanted a queer Robin but after years and years of campaigning from writers and fans it finally happened
