I dont even recognize the character in the new 52. In none of the works hes appeared in. So its not just lodbell. Can anyone explain why they butchered him like this? Dick grayson made the transition p. much unscathed, jason todd actually benefited from it, damian has always been a one note character so it didnt affect him at all. Do they hate tim over at DC or something?

@Soulaf: I wonder the same thing myself. All the time, it like it was an agenda against him.

The only stories with Tim remotely like his Pre-52 self were the Batman Eternal ones.

I enjoyed for the most part. The only thing I wasn't fond of was that whole super natural arch focused on Arkham.

All arcs were kind of pointless, didnt fit the theme of batman eternal and were usually used to give the batfamily something pointless to do to keep them from helping the bat.

Only exception to this was Tims arc, which was used to introduce a character nobody liked or cared for at the expense of everyone else.

It wasnt nearly as bad or nonsensical as lodbells trash, but it was bad.

Lobdell certainty helped in the deconstruction of Tim that's for sure.
