Batman and Bruce Wayne have always been synonymous in DC Comics’ multimedia (comics, movies, TV, games). However, this edition of One’s Gotta Go asks the essential question, who of the 4 most well known Robins would make the best Batman successor. Dick Grayson (Nightwing, leader of the Titans), Jason Todd (Red Hood), Tim Drake (Red Robin), and Damian Wayne (Robin, leader of the Teen Titans) are all in play here as we have a battle for the Batman cowl! This isn’t simply a conversation about which of these 4 Robins is the best Batman sidekick. No, this is a matter of which Robin would or will make the best successor to the Batman. Now, Nightwing has a clear advantage here because he has already held the mantle of Batman in an official capacity, but not all is black and white when it comes to the current state of Batman, Batman family comics, and DC Comics as a whole. DeepBoyce and HazyRome are back at it again in the Hall of Spoilers to decide which one of these Robin’s definitely gotta go and which Robin definitely has the potential to fill the Batman’s boots, cowl, Batplane, Batmobile…. Ah you get it, Batman is rich! Which Robin with come out on top!? Is Nightwing, Red Hood, Tim Drake, or Damian Wayne the best choice to become Batman in the future!? All this and more on this edition of One’s Gotta Go!
