Robin the Teen Fugitive Suspect
DC has embroiled the Boy Wonder in a mystery, and it’s a doozy. In an ambushed fight, Robin apparently kills “Batgirl” (who he soon reveals as Lynx, the Gotham gang boss) and is now on the run to clear his name. Sound familiar? Nightwing is in a similar predicament in his ongoing, although Dick seems much less proactive in clearing his name than Tim. Tim immediately sets out to try and uncover a.) who killed Lynx and dressed her up in an imitation Batgirl suit, and b.) who attacked and tried to frame him. Robin also has to break into a police station to examine the evidence that was removed from the crime scene. He’s got a lot of work to do and not a lot of time to do it in. Unbeknownst to him, there appears to be a Batgirl / Lady Shiva-esque figure following him around Gotham. Weirdness abounds.As do insults to the brain. Bill Willingham may be gone, but this new writer, Adam Beechen, isn't doing much better. Do we need to read about even a female crime boss being knocked off? This is just too silly for words.
I'm really not surprised it would turn out to be as crummy sounding as this story does. And something tells me that Nightwing may not be doing much better. Mainly because it almost sounds like another crossover/rip-off is in motion!
