Tim Drake

The third and might be the most important Robin.

Current comic continuity might say otherwise, but it also says Batman went through the first two Robins and Tim, and had Damian Wayne as Robin in less than five years. So continuity be damned.

Unlike the previous Robins where Bruce Wayne eventually revealed himself as Batman. Tim Drake figured it all out. Then had enough balls to confront Batman about it. Few other people can make the claim they solved who Batman was, Tim might be the only one who wasn’t allowed to have a driver’s license yet.

Tim argued to Bruce about how Batman needs a Robin and after Jason died Batman became more violent, ruthless and acted less like the super sleuth Tim knew he was. Without Drake, Bruce was sliding down a slope no one knew where would lead. The world doesn’t need more violence, it needs a detective.

This was the Robin that put The Dynamic Duo back together. Although Tim wasn’t a force physically like the previous two Robins, he grew into that, and what he lacked in physicality he more than made up for with his brain.

Then, as Robins do, Tim grew up. Currently he goes by Red Robin, and if you don’t make a big deal out of certain continuity things, it makes sense, and Tim is still my favorite Robin.
