@nathaniel_christopher: I know, but it would make more sense if Tim would be 17 or 18. If he is only 16 now he started his solo carer probably around 15 (younger than Dick was when he became Robin), and he would be younger than the other Teen Titans (who are 17 afaik).

And I don't really see a problem in having Tim and Jason around the same age, thats more faithfull to the original comics (since Jason was already Robin at the age of 12 and Tim became robin at the age of 13, even the old 2 year is actually to lrage to fit in the continuity), than putting Jason on close to Dicks age, and it seems anyway a trend to team Tim and Jason up.

Tim started out as Robin at the age of 13 or 14 Pre-Flashpoint, so I hardly see how it really matters now. Him then being a year younger than the rest of the Titans also doesn't really matter. There's little to no reason for them to be the same age.

Dick's 21, Tim's 16, so I guess Jason's probably around 19 or so then.

Than Tim would have been around 14 when he started as Robin and the others 16, that feels somehow wrong since pre-flashpoint Dick and Jason were the ones who started at younger age.

And the Age Difference between Jason and Tim would be bigger than pre-flashpoint were Jason was just two years older ...

All goes back to the 5 year timeline, which remains a bad idea. Logically speaking, Tim would have to be starting younger than Dick at the very least, because Dick didn't start until he was 16. Then, only 5 years passed, in which you need to fit Jason, Tim, and Damian in. So by the end of it, Dick is 21, has been Nightwing, Batman, and returned to being Nightwing. Jason's been Robin, died, and come back as the Red Hood. You've had Tim working with Bruce, and you've then had him striking out on his own, and finally you've had Damian working with both Dick and Bruce as Robin. Those events alone, again within five years, don't leave you large gaps for time to pass, especially because you have to keep in mind that the last two years featured Bruce dying and Dick working as Batman, plus Batman Inc. And by the point Bruce "dies", Dick, Jason, and Tim all have to have worked as Robin (Red Robin in Tim's case) already. Unless they'd made all three the same age, or shortened the gaps in age even further (Which also would've been a bad idea, as that just makes them even more similar), there was just no way Tim would be starting out as the oldest this time around.

Every time I see Black Swans and Valeria Richards together...I can't help but think they are both Valeria of different worlds.

Then I hear George Costanza's voice in my head yelling "WORLDS ARE COLLIDING!!" After that, it is nothing but Costanza rants coming out of Doom's face mask for the rest of the night. I don't sleep well.

Glad i'm not the only one.

Are we still sticking with the vest hoodie for Jason?

*sigh*

Ok then.

Yep. Still looks like trash, just like it did when it first appeared.

Beyond that i'm liking what i'm seeing so far. The Robin's working together more is something i've wanted to see for a while, especially to put more emphasis on their relationships with each other. Also like the use of the flashback and monologue. Hopefully we'll see some for Tim and Jason as well, though I know Dick's time as Robin is specifically the major focus here.

Dick's 21, Tim's 16, so I guess Jason's probably around 19 or so then.
